Rory McIlroy shot his second consecutive 2-over 72 and enters the weekend seven shots off the lead at 4-over.

The former Baylor School and Vanderbilt University golfer will be in the final pairing of the third round after shooting a 4-under-par 66 Friday at PGA National to grab a share of the lead at 3 under with Jamie Lovemark, who had a 69.

Woods, though, rifled a 5-iron into a strong headwind that settled some 12 feet from the hole and displayed vintage Woods calm in rolling in the putt. "You have to be callous; you have to kind of go through it before you understand what you're getting into". He opened the year with two straight missed cuts, but he's finished no worse than 26th in his last three outings, with a cumulative score of 15 under in those events. "I didn't think he would chip this well, play bunker shots this well".

Tommy Fleetwood (68), Russell Henley (70), Rory Sabbatini (69) and Webb Simpson (72) were tied for third at 2 under at the midway mark, while Daniel Berger (72), Louis Oosthuizen (72), Pieters (70) and Justin Thomas (72) were another stroke back in seventh. "I've done that, and I'm right there with a chance".

List and Lovemark were at 3-under 137, the highest score to lead at the halfway point of the Honda Classic since it moved to PGA National in 2007. His two rounds include only three bogeys (T3) and a double with eight circles (T4) also on his card. He grew up in Southport, England, and has absolutely no problems navigating any windy conditions. I thought we'd see him swinging at 114mph, and last week he was swinging at 118mph.

This is in combination with the already popular carnival ride Toy Story Mania! that premiered in 2008. Here are the four major attractions that will be present at Disney World's Toy Story Land .

Jhonattan Vegas carved it up here past year with 69-64 on the weekend to cash T4. It cost him a bogey, ending his bogey-free run on the day.

Lahiri opened the day with a bogey on 10th and added a second bogey on 13th, but a birdie on 18th, where he holed a 13-footer for birdie, saw him turn in one-over.

And after being side-lined in August 2015 ahead of mutlipe back surgeries and not returning to the Tour to January, 2018 there is many already ready to single out Woods' next victory, and should he win again, as one of the sweetest.

Defending champion Rickie Fowler was not as fortunate. "It certainly was not the result I was looking for, but it was a good experience playing with Tiger". He had a 71 and was at 1-over 141 and just outside the top 10. The Englishman, who played with Fowler in the final group previous year on Sunday, MC by a shot while shooting down plenty of teams on the way.

Only a few minutes earlier, Kizzire had met Woods for the first time.
