Tiger Woods briefly grabs lead at Valspar

Phil Mickelson

Tiger Woods is now tied for the lead at the Valspar Championship in his first appearance at this event.

Tiger Woods, in only his fourth start since returning from injury, was in a three-way share of the clubhouse lead in the Valspar Championship second round on Friday in Palm Harbor, Florida. Woods just birdied his 11th hole to tie for the lead, so at this rate, he might be the favorite to win the green jacket by day's end.

He responded from double-bogey after a loose putt on his 14th hole by chipping in from a bunker two holes later to deliver birdie, only to give the shot back on his final hole to wrap up a frustrating day.

Yes, I know that sounds insane to say, but if there is one course that Woods knows how to not only minimize his mistakes but take advantage of, it's Augusta National.

The idea for an all-woman station was first mooted by CR General Manager D.K Sharma and finally implemented in July 2017. Besides, Matunga Road in Mumbai's busy suburban section will start its operations with an all-woman team from Thursday.

Thursday was the first time since 2015 that Woods broke par in the opening round of a PGA Tour event. But he made back-to-back bogeys at the 12th and 13th before playing the remaining five holes in 1 under.

Woods, a 14-time major victor, was happy to see a player from his generation win a tournament and was confident the veterans on tour like himself will be able to keep up and challenge the current generation of players like Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Bruce Koepka.

Legitimately competing for a tournament championship is yet another step for Woods on his journey back. "We as a group got fooled a lot today".

"Kind of had a mindset of trying to take advantage of a good break, I guess, " he said.

China's defense spending as a share of GDP and the budget also remains lower than that of other major nations, he said . This proposed change has proven controversial. "So many people have been leaving the White House".

"I'm happy with what I am seeing in my golf in the last five or six rounds and I hope the next couple of weeks are good and I get that bit of confidence because that's always helpful".

"I'm starting to get a better feel for it, I'm finding the rhythm of the rounds, I'm hitting shots, I don't have a problem posting scores".

Considering swirling winds made scoring hard (Woods' playing competitor Jordan Spieth shot 5-over 76), Woods' first effort at the Valspar was solid.

While Shane Lowry is in a promising position after Friday, Padraig Harrington endured another tough day, hitting a two over par 73 which leaves him at seven over par for the championship.

Chiefs were also offered LB Alec Ogletree in Marcus Peters trade
Ogletree will have cap hits of $10 million for the next three years and $9 million in 2021, the last year of his deal. The Giants had two fourth-round picks in the upcoming draft, including a compensatory selection.
