Former NFL quarterback and current CBS commentator Tony Romo has known Woods for years, and he said in an interview with Golfweek that they bonded over back issues. His best 9-hole score was a 28 in the 2007 Tour Championship, and his 29 on Thursday matched four other instances, most recently at the WGC Mexico in 2006. He was at 9 under when Woods finished, only to make consecutive bogeys and finish with a two-putt birdie for a 62. He was the PGA Tour rookie of the year last season after winning the Tour Championship for his second PGA Tour title.

After 36 holes, Woods sits five shots back of the leader.

It wasn't easy for everyone. He opened with a 20-foot birdie putt at No. 10, shot 29 on the back nine, and then rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on No. 1 to reach 7 under through 10 holes.

Schauffele was at 13-under 127 and will be paired in the third round Saturday with a familiar figure in Philadelphia.

They led by one stroke from American Xander Schauffele in the third of four playoff events on tour.

"I've hit hundreds of millions of putts [with the Cameron]; I've had it since '99", Woods said.

His only bogey came at the par-3 eighth, by far the most hard pin on the course.

Rory McIlroy keeps an eye on his shot.

The wide fairways and temperatures in the 90s that allowed the golf ball to seemingly fly forever made for such low scoring that 48 players in the 69-man field broke par.

Tiger Woods will play in the Ryder Cup later this month for the first time since 2012 after he was named as one of the first three captain's picks by Jim Furyk on Tuesday.

"I think Nike is trying to get out ahead of it and trying to do something special and I think they've done that", said the 14-time Major victor.

But the longest putt he made on day two at Aronimink was six feet.

Four early starters including 2016 Masters champion Danny Willett (66) were in a group at 6 under, trailing Tanihara by three. "And I didn't capitalize".
