The Players Championship 2012: Tiger Woods Playing Well, Jumps 70 Spots On Leaderboard

Tiger Woods has recovered from a rough opening day and is climbing the leaderboard in the second round of the 2012 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Florida on Friday.

After finishing 2-over on Thursday, Woods has rebounded admirably and has jumped a whopping 70 spots on the leaderboard through his first 13 holes in Round 2. Woods is 4-under for the day with five birdies and just one bogey, coming on the par-4 fifth hole.

Woods is now 2-under overall and tied for 30th place with a slew of other golfers, including Phil Mickelson and Henrik Stenson.

Matt Kuchar through 14 holes is tied with Zach Johnson atop the leaderboard at 8-under. Harris English and Kevin Na are close behind at 7-under.

Edit: Tiger Woods finished his round at 2-under for the tournament after firing a 68.
