Woods confident of Bay Hill revival

Tiger Woods (5/2 tournament outright) says he is still confident of claiming an eighth Arnold Palmer Invitational title despite his disappointing second round 70 in Orlando.

The American made a magnificent start, birdying the first, before firing an eagle at the sixth and recording further birdies at 11th and 13th.

However, he appeared to lose concentration in the latter stages of the back nine, recording uncharacteristic bogeys at each of the last three holes, a stretch where he has traditionally prospered.

Bill Haas (10/3 tournament outright) and Justin Rose (15/8) are the current  joint-leaders of the tournament, four shots clear of the 14-time major winner on nine-under, with John Huh sitting third.

Despite the talent of the leaders, all eyes look set to be on Tiger over the weekend though, with players and pundits alike knowing victory will see him go back to the top of the world rankings.

The 37-year-old was understandably disappointed by how he finished on Friday, but is confident he can claw his way back over the weekend at Bay Hill.

“I’ve made my share of mistakes on the last few holes the last couple of days, and I need to clean that up,” he said. The good news is we’ve got 36 holes to go. We’ve got a long way to go. And certainly four shots can be made up.”
