Tiger falls back after strong start

"Woods talked Tuesday about turning 74s into 70s; on Saturday he may have turned an 80 into a 74, although that isn’t going to make the score or his position on the leaderboard look any better," Bob Harig writes. Reverts to old 'patterns'

Mario Macias goes down in the first. Gets up and ref stops it. Rafael Vazquez TKO 1 Macias. Looked like a quit job from my seat.

Tiger Woods on his round of 74: "Am I surprised? Yeah, a little bit. I was waiting for the one moment, the one shot. I couldn't find it."

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Kevin Chappell and Troy Merritt are your Quicken Loans National 54-hole co-leaders. Twelve others within four shots of the lead.

Woods: 2 steps forward, 1 step back

After 2 rounds in the 60s at the Quicken Loans National, Tiger shot a 3-over 74 today to drop 9 shots back. He scrambled most of the round, recording 3 bogeys and 1 double, and dropped from 5th place to 42nd. Leaderboard

Tiger couldn't turn a 74 into a 70. But he might have turned a 78 into a 74. Finishes at -5.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Troy Merritt has been done for hours, but finally has some company at the top, with Rickie Fowler and Kevin Chappell each at -14, too.

Tiger was inches away from his 4th ace on the PGA Tour. He had one in each of his first 3 years, none since '98.

Ian Poulter @ianjamespoulter

Slightly excited my @Ferrari super cars will be joined by there new bigger brother. VERY lucky boy. Keep pinching myself.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Tiger Woods just hit one on the par-3 16th to seven inches. His last competitive ace came in 1998. He's played over 3,800 par-3s since then.

Bob Harig @BobHarig

Tiger nearly jarred it at 16 for an ace, will have tap in for second birdie.
