Things got so bad for Tiger Woods off the tee in Friday's second round of the Bridgestone Invitational that he had to supply his own soundtrack.
"Get in the hole!" he sneered under his breath at an errant iron shot into the par-3 seventh hole, repeating the cliched phrase so often yelled by the loudest of his fans.
Woods followed up his worst round ever at Firestone Country Club, a 4-over 74 on Thursday, by matching his second-worst round, a 72. When he left the course, the seven-time winner of the Bridgestone stood 13 shots off the lead -- but just two shots out of last place in the 81-player field.
In his 261 PGA Tour starts, he has played the first 36 holes worse in only four tournaments.
