Japan’s Ishikawa moves one forward as Tiger roars

Ryo Ishikawa sank a 30-footer during a final for a third uninterrupted birdie to corner a cadence in front after a second turn while Tiger Woods also charged into row during a Quicken Loans National in Virginia on Friday.

Ishikawa, seeking his initial feat on a PGA Tour after twice finishing second, dismissed a three-under-par 68 on another hot, balmy day during Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville to conduct a tightly-bunched leaderboard.

The 23-year-old Japanese, co-leader overnight with South African maestro Retief Goosen, churned 7 birdies with 4 bogeys to post an 11-under sum of 131, one forward of Americans Rickie Fowler (65) and Kevin Chappell (68).

Swede David Lingmerth (65) was alone during 9 underneath while contest horde Woods was a serve cadence behind with 8 other players after carding a 66 on a receptive, rain-softened layout.

Woods, who has especially struggled on a PGA Tour this deteriorate while operative by his latest pitch change as he recovers from behind surgery, piled adult 6 birdies and a spook to rocket adult a leaderboard.

“I strike a turn unequivocally good today, though we missed a few putts,” Woods told reporters after posting his lowest opening 36-hole sum on a U.S. circuit given a 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. “This could have been a unequivocally low one.”

Now ranked a squalid 266th in a world, Woods pronounced he was given additional proclivity on Friday after a popped adult tee shot during a 14th, his fifth hole of a day, led to his usually spook of a round.

“It got me a small dismissed up,” smiled Woods, who finished turn with 8 others, including associate Americans Pat Perez (67), Charles Howell III (67) and Jimmy Walker (63), Englishman Greg Owen (68) and South Korean Kim Meen-whee (66).

“Got me a small some-more focused on what I’m doing out there instead of only attack a shot.”

World series 8 Fowler, who won a prestigious Players Championship in May followed by a European Tour’s Scottish Open progressing this month, soared into a tie for second with a rousing birdie-birdie-birdie finish.

“It was good to finish a approach we did,” a 26-year-old told Golf Channel. “I unequivocally didn’t do a whole lot special, only birdying a final 3 done a turn a special one today.”
