Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri carded three bogeys in a span of four holes towards the end of his second round but eventually made the cut at the Honda Classic on Saturday.

Woods was to sign for a 71, one over par, which leaves him four from the Honda Classic lead.

Throughout the 36 holes played thus far, Woods has been showing some of the traces that still captivate fans of golf.

"It was just my seventh round (of 2018), so easily it was my best ball-striking day", he said. The Honda Classic previous year is the only time he went on to win.

Former British Open victor Louis Oosthuizen and reigning PGA Championship holder Justin Thomas were a stroke off the lead on 67, while defending champion Rickie Fowler (71) and four-time Major victor Rory McIlroy (72) were plagued by three bogeys and a double-bogey respectively.

While all the draft pick numbers aren't official, the Packers should have the following picks: Nos. The Bengals, Cowboys, Packers and Raiders each received four compensatory draft picks.

Meanwhile, Tiger Woods is soon to get his second round under way starting from an even-par score.

"I had good touch, but more importantly, I made a lot of the key short putts for par", he added.

Tommy Fleetwood, who won the Race to Dubai on the European Tour previous year, scratched out a 68 and was one shot out of the lead along with Webb Simpson (72), Russell Henley (70) and Rory Sabbatini (69).

The 14-time major champion continues to look healthy, which remains the most important factor with The Masters just six weeks away, but his game isn't in top form quite yet. He's not hitting fairways (10 of 28), greens (17 of 36) and he's 52nd in strokes-gained: putting.Kelly Kraft posted 69 and jumped up 42 spots to T14.

The 14-time major champion rolled a five-footer home to avoid dropping a shot at the 14th, only to bogey the 16th after failing to get up-and-down from a greenside bunker.

Early starter List made five birdies in a four-under 66 to surge up the leaderboard with the low round of the day after he had opened with a one-over 71 on Thursday. Woods got to the tee and the wind died, meaning 5-iron was too much and 6-iron wouldn't clear the water. "I'm really pleased the way I played".

After a 361-yard drive at the 10th, he missed a nine-foot birdie try. "I've done that, and I'm right there with a chance".

The big moment was the 17th hole, 184 waters into the wind and over water. He was still sitting on the cut line before a double bogey on his 15th hole of the day dropped him to 7-over. There were eight scores of triple bogey or worse, with the hole playing a total of 104 over par. "It's not something that I'm used to because I've never felt like this before, but this is the new norm".

But he's still proving the pieces are there in just his third official PGA Tour start in his return.
