Tiger-woods-pga-2012-friday-blogTiger Woods shot one-under 71 Friday in brutal conditions at the PGA Championship to take a share of the lead in the season's final major.
Woods's round was extraordinary on a day when extreme winds buffeted players on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, S.C. Gusts on the seaside track wreaked havoc with players' shots and sent scores soaring; the average 18-hole total on Friday was just above 78. Vijay Singh, with 69, was the only player to break 70, and 35 players failed to break 80.
Woods, four under for the tournament, was poised to head into the weekend with the outright lead until a three-putt bogey on the par-4 18th. He's tied with Singh and Carl Pettersson.
Woods has 14 major championships, second only to Jack Nicklaus's 18, but he hasn't won a major title since the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego. He has won three times this season, the most of any player on the PGA Tour.
