GULLANE, Scotland -- Tiger Woods needed just three holes to make his first birdie on Friday morning.
A 12-footer at No. 3 moved the world No. 1 to 3 under and two strokes off Zach Johnson's lead. But Woods promptly gave that stroke back at the next hole when he three-putted from 25 feet, missing a 5-footer to save par.
McDowell, who has either won or missed the cut in his last eight starts, has work to do. He birdied his second hole byt still stands 3 over for the tournament after shooting 75 in the first round.
