Tiger Woods, SoCal Native, Braves Heat, Moves Up at AT&T National
- Updated: June 30, 2012
Tiger Woods overcame the 107-degree heat index to shoot a 3-under 68 and get within five shots of Hunter Mahan on Friday at the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda Maryland.
As the Washington D.C. area heat affected all aspects of play, Woods was able to fight through the discomfort and put together a string of shots that has him back in contention heading into the weekend.
The temperature was certainly a factor, but Woods, who has played all over the world was unphased:
“I live in Florida,” he said. “It’s not quite this hot there, but it’s definitely more humid,” he said. “I have played some good tournaments over the years in Malaysia and other places where it’s hot. Certainly running all those miles and lifting all those weights comes into play when you have weather like this on consecutive days.”
Woods has put himself in prime position to compete over the weekend at a tournament that suits his game. As always when he tees it up, it will be must-see television for golf fans.
