Tiger Woods continued his good form at the Wyndham Championship with a second round 65, which handed him a share of the lead on 11-under-par alongside Tom Hoge.
Instead of citing improvements in his swing, or some new-found skill around the greens, the 14-time major winner feels his resurgence at the Sedgefield Country Club can be credited to the nature of golf itself.
"I just couldn't get anything out of my rounds (before this tournament) and a couple lucky bounces here, take advantage of those opportunities – it's just the flow," Woods said.
The former world number one has, this year, had his worst season on the PGA Tour since turning professional in 1996, and have missed the cut at the last three majors, while his tie for 17th at the Masters remains his best finish of the season.
Woods went into this weekend's Wyndham Championship – the final event on the PGA Tour season-proper – in 187th place on the FedEx Cup points list, while only the top 125 quaify for the series of four end-of-season events.
A victory for Woods this week will see him advance, while a solo-second place may prove sufficient as well, depending on which player finishes in front of him.
"I wasn't quite as sharp as I was yesterday," Woods added, recalling the first round 64 he carded on Thursday.
"I've shot 59 and I left a couple shots out there.
"The great thing about golf, you can always get a little bit better."
