Twitter reacts to Tiger Woods back to being Tiger Woods

FacebookPinterestMike Ehrmann  Getty Images Woods hopes to show further improvement in his game this week at the Valspar Championship

It has him tied eleventh at 4-under, five shots behind Conners.

And the 14-time Major victor surged to the top of the leaderboard for the first time since August 2015 before ending the second round in a tie for second, two shots behind leader Corey Conners. But I'm starting to get a better feel for it. It's been a pretty clean last couple of days and really good, really consistent.

Tiger Woods is in position to win his first tournament in five years, as his stunning comeback took shape at the Copperhead course in Florida.

And when quizzed when he returns to his hotel tonight will he be thinking about winning. "That's basically how I'm going about as far forward as the first tee". I kind of knew what was going on without even having to see it.

"We had fun again, Sneds (Brandt Snedeker) and I. We both played well and it was just an unbelievable environment".

Marine Le Pen to reveal new name for National Front
Jean-Marie Le Pen also is to be scratched from the party's books along with his title of honorary president-for-life. She bowed out of politics after her aunt's presidential defeat, but is expected to come back in a new role.

However, presentable birdie chances went begging for the 14-time major champion at the 11th and 12th, and he then made a clumsy bogey at the short 13th after a ugly pulled tee shot.

Birdies at the par-4 third and 614-yard, par-5 fifth - where he hit a driver off the tee and a 3-wood for his second shot over the green - kept Woods close.

Another 66 tomorrow might well see the Australian contending for the title himself but either way his game is definitely trending in the right direction. "Hopefully it will be tomorrow", he said.

"There's a packed leaderboard", Woods added. There's so many guys played their way back up into this tournament.

The player who also refused to quash speculation surrounding his future, said he maintained a good relationship with the club. I have always been in contact with the club. "I'm not saying I'm coming or going", he said.

Playing partners Jordan Spieth and Henrik Stenson, the last two Open champions, missed the cut after finishing five and six over respectively.

This is the 70th time Woods will be tied or within one of the lead entering the final round; he won on 62 of those occasions. This brought Tiger to within a shot of Corey Conners, who is not exactly backing down and really pushing the pace playing in the final pairing.

And while Knox would dearly love to capture a third Tour victory, the Scot is focussed on improving his current No. 98 World Ranking and joining Woods in next month's Masters.

"To play myself into contention this early into it was nice, and on top of that, to build on what I did a week ago", he said, referring to the Honda Classic when he was on the fringe of contention going to the back nine.
