Tiger Tracker: Shot-by-shot recap of Tiger Woods' second-round 67

Tiger Woods could’ve gone really low, but he still did a lot of good on Friday at Memorial despite missed opportunities.

The 14-time major champion fired a 5-under 67 in the second round to put himself in position heading into the weekend at Muirfield Village. He did this despite missing five putts inside 8 feet for the day.

It was certainly an entertaining Friday from Woods, who had a hole-out eagle in the round! We followed his entire second round shot-by-shot.

Catch up with what you may’ve missed below…

Hole No. 18: Par 4, 471 yards

OFF THE TEE (7:10 p.m. ET): Another 3-wood and this is a miss to the right. It might be in a bunker, we’ll update when we get the chance.

APPROACH SHOT (7:16 p.m. ET): Tiger was indeed in the bunker, but he was not blocked out by anything. He hits a beauty about 20 feet left of the cup.

ON THE GREEN (7:22 p.m. ET): Just missed. Tiger put that left-to-right swinger out there, but it just came under the cup at the end. He taps in for par to finish his round.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 5-under 67 (-5 overall, T-24)

Hole No. 17: Par 4, 472 yards

OFF THE TEE (6:51 p.m. ET): A 3-wood off this tee for Tiger and this is executed well, as the ball finishes in the right side of the fairway. Good stuff.

APPROACH SHOT (6:59 p.m. ET): Tiger didn’t like this one at all. He tried to attack this left flag from a good angle and the ball goes a little too far left and short into rough. It leaves a tricky chip, but with water left of the green, Tiger could’ve been wet if this ball was just a little farther off.

AROUND THE GREEN (7:04 p.m. ET): Tiger does OK from there, chipping this one about 3 feet short of the cup. That was a bit tricky, so all and all pretty good.

ON THE GREEN (7:07 p.m. ET): Wow, another short miss. Tiger jacks this one to the left. That was a 38-inch putt. Man, if Tiger’s putter was on today, this would’ve been a really special round.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 5 under thru 17 (-5 overall, T-23)

Hole No. 16: Par 3, 201 yards

OFF THE TEE (6:39 p.m. ET): Tiger, baby!! This one lands literally a foot in front of the flag and then rolls out 7 feet beyond the cup. Man is he feeling it today. Just knocking down flags. We’re loving life.

ON THE GREEN (6:45 p.m. ET): Tiger under-reads this one. The ball slides under the hole on the left as it loses speed at the end. It’s another short-ish miss. Tiger is 6 under in a round where he has missed 4 putts inside 8 feet.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 6 under thru 16 (-6 overall, T-12)

Hole No. 15: Par 5, 534 yards

OFF THE TEE (6:19 p.m. ET): Tiger goes driver, and this one leaks right and into the crowd in the rough. This is certainly better than yesterday’s adventure off the tee that led to double, but barring an incredible lie there, this is going to be a layup.

SECOND SHOT (6:25 p.m. ET): Tiger indeed lays up back into the fairway. He’ll have a wedge third.

THIRD SHOT (6:29 p.m. ET): A spinny wedge here from Tiger, lands 10 feet right and long of the pin, hops a bit forward and spins back too much. The ball does hang up on the fringe, though, rather than going into the greenside rough. He’ll have 15 feet or so for birdie, and this is makeable.

AROUND THE GREEN (6:34 p.m. ET): Tiger’s putt from the fringe … GOT IT! That was just perfect. Hit that dead center with perfect speed. Huge birdie. Tiger plays the par 5s in 5 under today.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 6 under thru 15 (-6 overall, T-11)

Hole No. 14: Par 4, 363 yards

OFF THE TEE (6:06 p.m. ET): After a pair of disappointing pars, Tiger comes to a hole where you pretty much have to hit iron off the tee to lay up short of a creek. He does just that with aplomb. He’l have a wedge second upcoming.

APPROACH SHOT (6:09 p.m. ET): That was dangerous for a second, but Tiger is safe. His sand wedge came up right and short of the cup some 15-20 feet, started spinning back and right a little toward a bank that goes down to water. But the ball hangs up on the fringe, just feet from reaching that bank (which, to be fair, isn’t shaved). He’ll have about 25 feet for birdie. Not great, but this could’ve been a lot worse.

AROUND THE GREEN (6:13 p.m. ET): Tiger putts this one about a foot left of the cup. This will be a simple par.

ON THE GREEN (6:14 p.m. ET): Yep, that’s a par. And he has a par 5 upcoming.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 5 under thru 14 (-5 overall, T-21)

Hole No. 13: Par 4, 460 yards

OFF THE TEE (5:50 p.m. ET): Tiger takes 3-wood and this is a perfect and aggressive strike. He plays a slight fade off the left fairway bunker and this ball lands in the left intermediate and hops into the fairway. Fantastic.

APPROACH SHOT (5:56 p.m. ET): What a response. After a missed opportunity at No. 12, Tiger comes right back and stuffs one to 4 feet here. That ball landed just before the pin, bounded forward and stopped quickly with spin just beyond the hole. Just a pleasure to watch.

ON THE GREEN (6:01 p.m. ET): Did not see that coming. Tiger’s putt hits the right side of the cup and does a vicious lip out. That’s another big opportunity missed. This is a great round, but Tiger’s putter is the only thing preventing this from being a super low score.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 5 under thru 13 (-5 overall, T-20)

Hole No. 12: Par 3, 164 yards

OFF THE TEE (4:12 p.m. ET): OMG, Tiger …  His ball appeared to glaze the flag before it landed and finishes 6 feet beyond the cup. We might have a birdie coming, and that would put TW 6 under for the round.

ON THE GREEN (5:42 p.m. ET): After a weather delay of a little under 90 minutes, Tiger had a good birdie look but misread it. The ball finishes left and never touches the cup. Disappointing, but he’s still playing really well.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 5 under thru 12 (-5 overall, T-19)

Hole No. 11: Par 5, 567 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:51 p.m. ET): Tiger takes driver, and this one misses in the right rough.That is not ideal, so this is a layup.

SECOND SHOT (3:59 p.m. ET): Tiger wedges back into the fairway and should have a wedge in for his third.

THIRD SHOT (4:01 p.m. ET): YES!!!!!! Tiger HOLES OUT for eagle from the fairway and oh it is ON!!

That was so perfect, he landed it about 10 feet beyond the pin, it hopped a little forward and then spun back into the cup.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 5 under thru 11 (-5 overall, T-17)

Hole No. 10: Par 4, 477 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:37 p.m. ET): Another driver that is PIPED down the fairway. This is one is almost 320 down the left side of the short grass. Wonderful.

APPROACH SHOT (3:43 p.m. ET): Another one right on the money. This is a pretty shot that finishes about 15 feet right of the cup. He would be 4 under if he can knock that look in.

ON THE GREEN (3:48 p.m. ET): That one misses low, but it’s an easy par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 under thru 10 (-3 overall, T-47)

Hole No. 9: Par 4, 412 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:22 p.m. ET): Tiger goes iron off the tee and this one is no problem, in the fairway.

APPROACH SHOT (3:27 p.m. ET): A nice approach here, as Tiger gets this one to finish about 15 feet below the cup.

ON THE GREEN (3:31 p.m. ET): Oh yeah! Drain-o. We’ve got another birdie. That’s a 3-under 33 after an opening three-putt bogey. Tiger’s stats: 5/7 fairways, 8/9 GIR, 14 putts.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 under thru 9 (-3 overall, T-37)

Hole No. 8: Par 3, 185 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:13 p.m. ET): Tiger goes right bunker off the tee on this par 3. That’s not ideal after a birdie, but we’ll see.

AROUND THE GREEN (3:16 p.m. ET): He ALMOST holes that one, but the ball just misses the cup as it runs by. The ball ends up moving 5 feet past the cup. So Tiger isn’t in for par yet, either.

ON THE GREEN (3:20 p.m. ET): He buries that one no problem. Great sandy there.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 under thru 8 (-2 overall, T-47)

Hole No. 7: Par 5, 557 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:49 p.m. ET): Driver. Nuked down the middle. Just what we want to hear on a par 5.

APPROACH SHOT (2:57 p.m. ET): Tiger launches a long iron and it’s too much. The ball sails over the green and into a back bunker. Not an easy up and down from there, but a birdie is certainly still doable.

AROUND THE GREEN (3:04 p.m. ET): That was pretty. Tiger lands that on the back of the green, and the ball rolls and curls about 3 feet under the cup in front of the green. Birdie should be coming.

ON THE GREEN (3:10 p.m. ET): Yep. Another birdie. We’re feeling good here.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 under thru 7 (-2 overall, T-47)

Hole No. 6: Par 4, 447 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:33 p.m. ET): It looks like bunker for TW off the tee. He went with driver, and it leaked right from the start and appears to be in the sand.

APPROACH SHOT (2:40 p.m. ET): That was a deep bunker, but Tiger gets it up and out and hits a marvelous shot that finishes 15 feet under the cup. Tiger is starting to feel it.

ON THE GREEN (2:46 p.m. ET): Yeesh, another putt nosedives under the cup. This right-to-left swinger looked so good for so long but dove across the cup at the end. That’s an easy par, but that could’ve been an electric birdie.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under thru 6 (-1 overall, T-51)

Hole No. 5: Par 5, 508 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:16 p.m. ET): A 3-wood off the tee there, and that’s right down the fairway. Tiger will be able to go for this one in two.

APPROACH SHOT (2:22 p.m. ET): Tiger does go for it, but he misses the green right and a little short. He’ll need to get up and down from the fairway there for birdie, but it’s not a particularly difficult chip.

AROUND THE GREEN (2:25 p.m. ET): Tiger decided to putt from off the green and has this one finish 3 feet under the hole. That is some good touch, and we might have another birdie momentarily.

ON THE GREEN (2:29 p.m. ET): Yessir! Tiger birdies the fifth and he’s into red numbers.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under thru 5 (-1 overall, T-48)

Hole No. 4: Par 3, 199 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:05 p.m. ET): Tiger fires this right at the flag and the ball goes just right of the flag and bounds about 15-20 feet beyond the cup. A beautiful shot and a nice look upcoming.

ON THE GREEN (2:13 p.m. ET): That was a good putt, but it wasn’t meant to be. That 18-footer swing from left to right looks good but dives under the hole at the last second. A good effort, though, and an easy par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even thru 4 (Even overall, T-60)

Hole No. 3: Par 4, 393 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:50 p.m. ET): Tiger takes out an iron and goes with the stinger. Perfect. This is a nifty one that finishes down the right side of the fairway.

APPROACH SHOT (1:56 p.m. ET): There’s a smile from Tiger! This one got a little bit away from him, as the ball flies over the green from 145 yards, but it lands on a downslope in the rough, kicks backwards onto the green and, combined with backspin, rolls all the way to 4 feet under the cup. An excellent birdie opportunity, and yes Tiger did get away with one there.

ON THE GREEN (2 p.m. ET): Yep! Rolls it right in. That’s an important birdie, Tiger moves inside the cutline with that birdie.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even thru 3 (Even overall, T-59)

Hole No. 2: Par 4, 444 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:33 p.m. ET): After that disappointing bogey, Tiger takes a fairway wood that goes over 300 yards down the left side of the fairway. Pretty.

APPROACH SHOT (1:40 p.m. ET): Another solid second shot. This one finishes inside 25 feet under the cup. A decent look upcoming.

ON THE GREEN (1:29 p.m. ET): He can’t get it to drop. But this one had better speed and left him a tap-in. This is a par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 2 (+1 overall, T-73)

Hole No. 1: Par 4, 465 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:16 p.m. ET): Tiger takes 3-wood here, and that’s a miss to the right. It’s nothing terrible, the ball is in the rough, but that was not well-executed.

APPROACH SHOT (1:22 p.m. ET): That was textbook. Tiger muscles out a wedge from 165 yards and gets this ball to finish 30 feet under the hole. That pin was tucked right, so with Tiger in the rough on the right, that was pretty much as good as he could do.

ON THE GREEN (1:29 p.m. ET): Yikes. Tiger runs his first putt 4 feet by and then his comebacker hits the left lip and stays out. That’s a rough opening three-putt bogey, and he’s now outside the cutline.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 1 (+1 overall, T-72)
