Asked by ESPN how Woods was able to ignore what was physically going on with him after Friday’s round, he replied, “There’s a mission. The mission is to go ahead and win this somehow and I know sometimes it doesn’t exactly feel right, but hey, that’s what it is. Such is life, such is sports. We push it, sometimes it breaks but that’s ok you come back and that’s why I have a great PT staff. I’m very good at breaking things and I’m very good at fixing things, so it’s a great relationship.”
The third round of the PGA Championship begins on Saturday from the Southern Hills Country Club, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
