After going on a birdie streak during his first seven holes, Tiger Woods has dropped two shots and is now two back of leader Spencer Levin. Woods made three birdies in a row on holes five through seven, but right after tapping in for birdie on No. 7, he hit an errant tee shot on the par-3 8th. With the hole playing 191 yards on Sunday, Woods blocked his tee shot out to the left and put it in the greenside bunker, which was on the short side of the flag. He was unable to get up-and-down for a sand save, missing a 19-foot putt for his first bogey of the day. Woods also started the back side with a bogey when he put his approach shot on No. 10 in another greenside bunker.
Leader Spencer Levin lived on the edge a bit during his front nine, saving par with a number of clutch putts. But that ran out on No. 10 when Levin made his first bogey of the day to fall to 8-under. He put it in a fairway bunker and then hit the lip on his recovery shot to get out. The Levin bogey has Woods two shots back at 6-under.
Tiger, however, missed a great birdie opportunity on No. 11 -- which would have resulted in a two-shot swing and put him just one back for the second time today. Woods put his third shot on the par-5 to just seven feet from the pin, but stroked a poor putt and didn't even get it to the hole. It was an opportunity missed, but he will have another birdie, and potential eagle, chance coming at No. 15. Running out of holes on the back side, he must first get through No. 12 which is playing as the second-toughest hole at Muirfield on Sunday.
