Well all it needs is the heart and determination of a champion. He has to eat golf, drink golf, sleep golf and dream golf.LOL

11 Feb 2011
 
Tiger Woods moved up into the top ten on his return to the Omega Dubai Desert Classic - as Lee Westwood moved into a tie for third.

Resuming on one under par following his first round closing eagle, Woods birdied the 12th, 13th and 18th to reach the turn in a three under 34.

Westwood, meanwhile, birdied the two par fives on the back nine and on five under was only two behind overnight leader Rory McIlroy, one of the second round's later starters.

It was not such a good start for German Martin Kaymer, the third member of the world's top three grouped together for the final leg of The European Tour's Desert Swing.

Kaymer, needing a top-two finish to have a chance of dethroning Westwood, also made four on the 549 yard tenth after hitting the hole with his bunker shot, but then came bogeys at the 14th and short 15th.

That sent him down to two under, but a chip to six feet from over the green at the 18th brought him back to his starting position of three under and he was joint 16th.

McIlroy, meanwhile, had been joined on seven under by South African Thomas Aiken, who birdied the tenth and 15th and had still to card a bogey after 24 holes this week.

Woods added yet another birdie on the second despite driving into the rough, and after a par on the 568 yard next he was in a tie for sixth and only two behind McIlroy, Aiken and also Dane Anders Hansen.

Westwood also birdied the second and shared fourth spot with Ryder Cup team-mate Peter Hanson.

Woods continued his charge with a 25 footer on the short fourth and a wondrous approach to two feet at the 485 yard par four sixth not only brought him his sixth birdie of the day, but took him into a share of top spot.

After five holes of his first round yesterday he was two over and tied for 96th.

Westwood, though, bogeyed the sixth after driving into the rough and slipped back to sixth place on five under

Further update on 11 Feb game
 
Tiger Woods burst into contention with a second round 66 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic brought the former world number one within two shots of the lead.

Looking far more like the player who won 14 Major Championships than during his "scratchy" opening 71, the former World Number One was again partnering Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer, the two men who have overtaken him on the rankings.

Woods even charged into a share of the lead at one point - and this after he had been down in 85th spot 12 holes into his opening round.

Given a huge boost in confidence by a closing eagle in his opening round, the American resumed six adrift of overnight leader Rory McIlroy, but took only 15 holes to wipe out that deficit as McIlroy waited to tee off again.

Woods' run started on the 467 yard 12th, the hole he double-bogeyed on his previous visit, and further birdies came on the 13th and 18th - both par fives - to take him to the turn in 34.

After saving par from a bunker at the first he pitched to seven feet from the rough on the next, rolled in a 25 footer at the short fourth and then produced his shot of the day.

The par four sixth hole measures 485 yards, but the 2006 and 2008 champion cut the corner with a 314 yard drive and then hit a brilliant approach to two feet.

That was the moment he was briefly joint leader, but by finishing with three pars Woods reached halfway on 137, seven under, and found himself two behind South African Thomas Aiken.

McIlroy, though, was only just setting off and had the chance to open some daylight.

It is almost 15 months since Woods last tasted victory, and Westwood, who took over as World Number One last October, is in the hunt too, but a closing bogey left him on five under following a 70.

Kaymer, meanwhile, added a 71 to his opening 69 to be one further back.

Aiken, yet to win on the European Tour despite six top 14 finishes in seven appearances this year, still had three holes to play, but he too birdied the difficult sixth

Tiger muddles through difficult Sunday in Dubai

Shaky start, challenging conditions prevent Woods from claiming prize By Mark Soltau / TigerWoods.com
 Getty Images Much like Saturday, Tiger was hindered by early bogeys.
Never able to mount any momentum, Tiger Woods closed with a 3-over-par 75 Sunday and tied for 20th in the Dubai Desert Classic. He finished with a 72-hole score of 4-under 284, seven strokes behind winner Alvaro Quiros of Spain. "There were a few positives this week but a couple of glaring examples of what I need to work on," Woods said of his second tournament of the 2011 season. Woods, who began the final round one stroke off the lead, struggled early, making bogeys on the par-4 second and par-5 third holes. Paired with Sergio Garcia in mostly blustery conditions, his short game let him down. After making pars at four and five, Woods secured his first birdie of the day at the 485-yard, par-4 sixth, knocking his approach shot about three feet from the hole. He followed with three straight pars to make the turn in 1-over 36, but was still only three shots off the lead. On the par-5 10th hole -- which Woods eagled on Saturday -- he drove into the right rough, gouged his second shot short-left of the green into thick rough, flopped his third shot 30 feet beyond the cup and two-putted for a par. Woods hit arguably his best shot of the day at the 161-yard, par-3 11th, when he flagged a short iron two feet left of the hole for an easy birdie to pull within two strokes of first place. But Woods gave back the shot quickly at the par-4 12th, thanks to a poor drive that found a right fairway bunker. He had no choice but to play back out into the fairway and wound up making a five-foot putt for a bogey. Again, Woods rallied with a birdie at the par-5 13th hole. But he bogeyed the par-4 14th, ruining his comeback hopes. At the 187-yard, par-3 15th, Woods' tee shot landed in the left greenside bunker. He hit a nice explosion shot eight feet past the hole and converted the par-save. After pars at 16 and 17, Woods drove into the left rough at the par-5 18th and had no chance to reach the green in two. He played a lay-up shot down the fairway, then misjudged the wind on his third shot and the ball failed to clear a fronting water hazard. After taking a drop, Woods hit his fifth shot to the back of the green and two-putted for a double-bogey. "All my old feels are out the window when the wind blows," he said of his clubs. "That's the thing when you are making change. It's fine when the wind is not blowing, But when you have to hit a shot when the wind blows the new swing patterns get exposed." Patience, consistency and confidence are the keys going forward with his new swing changes. Woods made eight bogeys and two double-bogeys on the weekend and still gave himself a chance to win on the back nine Sunday.

"Just keep working," said Woods. "I'm getting better, but this is a process and it takes time."
