Tiger Woods is approaching history at the 2019 PGA Championship. A major winner again after his thrilling Masters triumph last month — his first major title in 11 years — Tiger is now one away from tying Sam Snead for most PGA Tour wins (82).
Scroll below for hole-by-hole updates from his first two PGA Championship rounds.
6:32 p.m. ET: Tiger's day is done, at 5-over for the weekend
Woods wraps up his day with a par, but it wasn't his best effort. Tiger finished the day 3 over and will likely miss the cut.
6:19 p.m. ET: Tiger 5-over heading into 18
The projected cut is 4 over. Tiger at least needs a birdie to play through the weekend.
5:54 p.m. ET: PAR for Woods on No. 15, still fighting to make the cut
Par may not sound too interesting, but they've been rare today for Tiger.
That, BTW, was Tiger’s first par since the eighth hole. Not kidding. https://t.co/CJqO4L7r3e— Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) May 17, 2019
5:16 p.m. ET: BIRDIE for Tiger on No. 13
Woods desperately needed that one, and now sits at +4. He's fighting to make the cut at this point.
Made it. Side door. Birdie at 13. He’s still grinding. Back to 4 over and one off the cut line. #PGAChamp— Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) May 17, 2019
4:47 p.m. ET: BOGEY for Woods on No. 11, up to 4-over
Tiger's on cut watch now. Just doesn't appear to be his tournament.
4:22 p.m. ET: BOGEY for Woods on No. 10, back to 3-over
The up-and-down play from Tiger continues. Missed a medium-length putt and has to take the bogey.
4:03 p.m. ET: BIRDIE for Tiger on No. 9, par for the day
Tiger hit a lengthy putt to even out his round for the day.
Here's a look at his front nine:
3:18 p.m ET: BIRDIE on No. 6, down to 2-over
Tiger needed this birdie badly, his first of the day.
3:08 p.m. ET: PAR on No. 5, still at 3-over
Tiger notched an impressive par save on the fifth hole, but it's getting late early. He's still yet to hit s fairway off the tee today.
2:20 p.m. ET: BOGEY, up to 3-over
Tiger's second round doesn't start off any better than his first. Missed a tough, but reasonable putt to bogey.
2:03 p.m. ET: PAR on hole No. 1
Tiger recovered from a brutal tee shot to convert par. Meanwhile, Brooks Koepka sank another birdie, picking up right where he left off yesterday.
1:47 p.m. ET. Two more minutes. Here we go.

He has one of only two birdies on No. 15 today, but Tiger is still 3-over as he goes to the first tee. Koepka, though, is tied for the lead at 3-under.
