PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods put on a show before thousands of fans at the Valspar Championship. Corey Conners settled for a quiet afternoon and the lead.
Gaining momentum with every round, Woods looked sharp Friday with four birdies and kept a clean card at Innisbrook until his last hole. He still shot a 3-under 68 and was two shots out of the lead going into the weekend.
Woods and his army of fans were walking off the course about the time Conners was getting started. The Canadian rookie made three quick birdies until a careless double bogey on No. 4, his 13th hole of the round. He still shot a 69 for his first 36-hole lead.
Paul Casey, Brandt Snedeker, Ryan Palmer and Kelly Kraft joined Woods two shots out of the lead.
