Tiger Woods came to No. 9, (he played the back side first), needing a birdie to make the 36 hole cut of the Wells Fargo Championship Friday afternoon.

Putting has not been his strong suit in the first two round with a negative 2.815 strokes gained putting.

Woods said after his first round the greens were slower than they looked and hard to read. Things have changed on the Quail Hollow Course since he last played it in 2012.

Woods was 2-over par after 17 holes Friday and needed a birdie on his 18th hole to make the 36 hole cut. Showing confidence he seemed to lack in the first round, Woods promptly knocked in the 13 footer for the much needed birdie and will play this weekend at Quail Hollow CC in the Wells Fargo Championship.

Putting is a major weakness in Woods game right now. His weekly average is a negative 2.8s strokes gained putting.

Woods is long off the tee this week, averaging 330 yards, combined with a 57% accuracy. He has an impressive 72.22% greens in regulation through 36 holes.

Woods said after his first round Thursday,” My game is fine. It’s just my putting. I’ve got work to do to get my putting where it needs to be.”

Woods found the course to be much different than when he last played here. “It is really harder than last time I was here. It is longer, way longer.  The greens are slower although they appear to be fast. I wasn’t prepared for  this much difference”, said Woods.
