Gary Woodland struggles to 79


— Gary Woodland had two double-bogeys and four bogeys on an eight-hole stretch during a rough second day at the PGA Championship.

A day after shooting a 67 to put himself in a tie for second, Woodland shot a 7-over 79 to put himself in a tie for 24th, six strokes behind co-leaders Vijay Singh, Tiger Woods and Carl Pettersson.

Woodland had just one birdie on the front nine, a 4 on the par-5 No. 2, though he did par six of the other first seven holes before his double-bogey 5 on the par-3 eighth started his bogey-filled run.

I think this article should have mentioned that the weather turned awful, and that no one played very well. They had 30+mph winds, and 41 of the players didn't break 80. Tiger was one of the few who did, and he ended up just one under. Gary didn't do nearly as bad as this article makes it sound.

Yeah, I would say if he went from a 67 to a 79 and is still only six of the lead, the weather must have been awful.
