U.S. Open 2019: Justin Rose, Jordan Spieth heat up as Tiger Woods tries to ‘hang in there’

Tiger Woods, executing against his plan to “just kind of hang in there,” was doing exactly that Friday at the midpoint of his second round at the 2019 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

Starting at No. 10, Woods, playing alongside overnight leader Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth, made the turn at 1 under for his round and 2 under for the tournament as he eyed taking advantage of the iconic course’s relatively benign front nine.

“The first seven holes you can get it going,” Woods said Thursday.

While Woods was methodically making his way around Pebble, Rose and Spieth were heating up. Rose, with a pair of birdies and the rest pars, carded a 34 on the tougher back nine to get to 8 under for the tournament and stretch his lead to three shots but immediately gave a shot back at No. 1 with his first bogey of the day.
