2015 Greenbrier Classic tee times and pairings: Can Tiger Woods go low again in Friday's round?

If you'd like to spend your holiday weekend watching golf, Tiger Woods will provide the entertainment, for better or worse, on Friday afternoon.

The Fourth of July holiday on a Friday afternoon at an also-ran PGA Tour event is usually not going to draw the biggest golf audience. But hey, Tiger Woods is back!

Coming off his best round in 16 months, the 14-time major winner and the 220th ranked player in the world will tee it up Friday afternoon at the Greenbrier Classic. Woods opened with a 4-under round of 66, which is exceptional for him these days. Of course, the Greenbrier is one of the easiest courses on the PGA Tour and he's four shots off the lead. But he's right there outside the top 10 and that's a vast improvement over the mess at the U.S. Open and the embarrassment of the Memorial.

Tiger is working through a swing change, so there were going to be those bad shots, bad rounds, and bad tournaments. But it's gotten dark in recent months. Thursday's round was a much-needed reprieve from the wild tee shots, unpredictable short game, and tumble down toward the bottom of the leaderboard. Greenbrier may be an easier course, but Tiger showed some game that would travel to most venues. He wasn't just scrambling around and making birdies on an easy track. He hit 10 of 14 fairways and that led to 15 of 18 greens in regulation. We'd heard he looked fantastic in a practice round on Wednesday, and we got more of the same on Thursday on the way his best competitive score in longggg time.

The opening round was nice, but rational minds weren't exactly installing him as the favorite at the Open Championship in two weeks. He'll have another 18 on Friday to back it up, and this week, he should not be grinding just to make a cut. The Old White TPC Course took on more rain throughout the afternoon, so scoring conditions will still be ideal. Numbers will be posted all morning and the lead will likely move. Tiger, as he said before the tournament, will need to k"eep the pedal down" if he wants to stay around the first page of the leaderboard.

Tiger goes with his good buddy Steve Stricker and David Lingmerth, who beat Tiger by 29 shots at Memorial, at 1:10 p.m. ET. Golf Channel's broadcast does not go live until 4 p.m., so Woods will be well into his round and should only have about five holes left during the broadcast window. Here's the full tee sheet for Friday's second round:
