The 2012 Players Championship continues at TPC Sawgrass with Round 2 on Friday. Colorado State alum Martin Laird opens the day tied for the lead with Ian Poulter at 7-under. Laird fired off a bogey-free round to score the opening-round 65 while Poulter made bogey on Hole 7, making that his only tarnish of the day.
Blake Adams is sitting right behind Laird and Poulter at 6-under, which had him atop the leaderboard for several hours on Thursday. The remainder of the top 10 sits at either 5-under or 4-under.
Tiger Woods, however, is nine strokes behind the leaders, finishing Round 1 at 2-over. Woods made five bogeys and just two birdies on Thursday. Can he rebound on Friday?
Friday's coverage begins at 11:00 a.m. MT on the Golf Channel.
