It’s a magical number. One of those career milestones a player never forgets.
Garcia has positioned himself into an unlikely spot. A full seven shots in Woods’ rear view mirror, Garcia is now 6-under through the front nine and tied for the lead after Woods bogeyed the 2d. With three short, reachable par-5s on the back, Garcia can make a charge. (He just made par at 10, surely a lost oppurtunity there. Nevertheless, with some weather possibly coming in later today, the three way tie for the lead at -11 (as of 10 AM, Woods, Garcia, Els) and Furyk, Goosen and DiMarco lurking, Tiger and Ernie are going to have to hit the gas to achieve the desired separation for a comfortable margin tomorrow. The margin Woods was counting on mid-day yesterday has evaporated and he is in a dogfight.
