WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, but walked away feeling positive with his game 36 holes into his return from injuries.

Woods shot 1-over-par 71 during Friday’s second round, putting him seven strokes behind the clubhouse leaders Adam Scott, Rickie Fowler, Ryan Moore and Keegan Bradley who are all at 8-under 132.

This is Woods first tournament since playing just nine holes at The Players Championship back in May.

“I didn’t putt as well as I did yesterday, and consequently, I just never got the round going,” Woods said.

During Friday’s second round Woods accounted for four birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey.

Starting on the back nine, he made consecutive bogeys at the 14th and 15th holes — he missed a 2-footer for par at No. 14 — then followed with consecutive birdies at Nos. 17 and 18. After four straight pars, Woods went bogey-birdie-double bogey-birdie. His double at the sixth came when he struggled from the rough behind the green. It was his first double bogey since the final hole of the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

To try and beat forecast weather conditions for Saturday, players will tee off the first and 10th holes in threesomes beginning at 7 a.m. ET. The Bridgestone Invitational does not have a 36-hole cut.
