Tiger Woods Trails AT&T National Co-Leaders by Three Strokes

Tiger Woods shot a 3-under-par 68 during his second round at the AT&T National, finishing play tied for eighth at the tournament that benefits his charitable foundation.

Woods, who opened the U.S. PGA Tour event at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland, with a 1-over-par 71 yesterday, had an eagle, two birdies and a bogey today for a 3- under finish. He’s 2-under for the event, three strokes behind Zimbabwe’s Brendon de Jonge and American Jimmy Walker, each who finished second-round play at 5-under par.

The majority of golfers in the 119-man field have yet to complete their second of four rounds.

Woods, currently fourth in the Official World Golf Ranking behind Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood, won the AT&T National in 2009. A victory would give Woods 74 U.S. PGA Tour titles, the second most in history behind Sam Snead’s 82.

Bo Van Pelt, who shot a 4-under-par 67 yesterday to take a one-shot lead into the second round, had 2-over 73 today with four birdies and six bogeys.
