Tiger’s 62 is not only a Sherwood Country Club course record, it’s a tournament record. It’s also the third round of 62 or lower in 2007. Brandt Snedeker had a 61 at the Buick Invitaitonal in San Diego and Zach Johnson had a 60 at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.
Tiger Woods just finished a 10-under-par 62 in the second-round of the Target World Challenge. He has shot 69-62–131 – the lowest 36-hole total in tournament history. Woods made a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for the 62.
Jim Furyk is leading the Target World Challenge at 4-under-par 68 after the first round. Tiger Woods, Zach Johnson, Henrik Stenson and Rory Sabbatini are all one back at 3-under 69. Woods led for most of the tournament.
Tiger Woods won the PGA Tour player of the year award, an award voted on by his peers. Brandt Snedeker was named rookie of the year, Jay Haas the Champions Tour player of the year, Steve Stricker the comeback player of the year and Nick Flanagan the Nationwide Tour player of the year.
Tiger Woods did his press conference this afternoon for the Target World Challenge. People asked customary questions about his swing, offseason, PGA Tour player of the year award and then came the tabloid stuff. A Britain woman who is believed to be from a British TV station or a dating Web site – it was unclear which – asked Tiger some offensive questions. She asked his opinion on her sex life and after several tasteless questions, the microphone finally was pulled from her and a Tiger Woods Foundation official tore off the bottom portion of her media pass to invalidate it. Woods handled the situation well, at one point saying, “You’ll have to figure that out.”
The woman, who was unfortunately sitting next to me, was dressed like she was going to a Hollywood club afterward. She said before the press conference that she “got dressed up just to ask Tiger one question.” She was clearly not a legitimate reporter. It’s doubtful she’ll ever get within a driver’s length of Woods again.
