British Open 2012: Tiger Woods Alone In Third Place

After shooting a 67 in the first round of the 2012 British Open, Tiger Woods continued his steady play by improving to 5-under par for the tournament when he gained an additional two strokes on the front nine of his second round.

Woods managed to birdie Holes No. 4 and No. 6 to earn sole possession of third place on the leader board and has effectively closed the gap between himself and the current leader, Brandt Snedeker who was at 10-under par.

The real challenge will come on the back nine where Woods 1-over during his opening round.

With the course expected to be wet and playing conditions to remain slow, Woods will hope to continue to narrow the gap between himself and Snedecker before his round is finished.
