Pebble Beach: Tiger Woods birdies, moves into 10th place

February 10, 2012 |  1:28 pm


Tiger Woods birdied the par-five 12th hole on the Monterey Peninsula course Friday at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which drew a huge roar and pulled Woods to seven-under for the tournament, tied for 10th overall.  Woods is four shots behind co-leaders Dustin Johnson, a two-time winner here, and Charlie Wi, who is trying to become the first University of California alum to win on the PGA Tour.

Johnson is through 11 holes on Spyglass Hill and Wi is through 14 at Pebble Beach.

Woods hit his approach shot on the 12th to within about two feet of the cup. He had chosen to lay up rather than go for the green with his second shot. Friday he has birdied two of the three par-fives on Monterey Peninsula. Unfortunately for Tiger, he has no more par-fives left this afternoon.

Umbrellas are coming out as a misty rain has begun.
