Woods Gets Back in Play With a 66

Associated Press

In danger of missing the cut for the first time in 71 tournaments after an opening four-over 75 on Friday morning, Tiger Woods shot a 66 in the afternoon to move into contention at one under in the Buick Classic.

That was not far behind second-round leaders Sergio Garcia and Scott Hoch, who were each at six under when play was called because of darkness. Garcia had completed 10 holes and Hoch nine.

Stewart Cink, Robert Allenby, Vijay Singh and J.P. Hayes all finished their rounds and were at five-under 137. Gabriel Hjertstedt was at five under after 10 holes.

Woods' 75 left him in a tie for 118th. He moved up to a tie for 24th after his second round, though about half the golfers in the field were still out on the course or had not teed off because of Thursday's rain.

Seventy-five players did not finish their rounds before darkness Friday and have to return this morning to do so before the third round.
