Tiger Woods did what he needed to do on Friday at the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass, carding a 4-under par round of 68 to make the cut.
And in fact, he had gone from trying to make the cut, to now putting himself in position just six shots behind the lead going into the weekend.
At the top of the leaderboard are three players tied at 8-under par. That would be Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar and Kevin Na.
All three of these players have experience winning tournaments on the PGA Tour, with Johnson a Major Champion after winning the Masters back in 2007.
There are several big names within six shots of the lead going into the weekend in addition to Woods. These names include Lee Westwood and Luke Donald, who are each five back. 2004 Players champion Adam Scott is just two shots back.
Noticeably absent from the weekend is No.1 ranked player in the world Rory McIlroy, after a 76 on Friday.
So do the odds stack up going into the weekend?
Woods has jumped up on the odds to win the Players Championship after his Friday round, going off at 14/1. Westwood has been set with identical odds as Woods, while Donald sits at 20/1.
Despite some of the big names missing the cut, the biggest name of all has a chance to put together a nice round and put some pressure on those at the top of the leaderboard on a golf course that is playing quite difficult, and is known to play even harder on the weekend.
