It has not been a great Saturday morning for Rory McIlroy. He began the day well off the pace but after three opening pars he has gone bogey, bogey, double, bogey and bogey and is last in the field at 10 over par.

Tiger will tee off at 12:10 p.m. on Saturday with Jason Dufner. Leaders Luke List and Jamie Lovemark go at 1:40 p.m.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Tiger Woods will tee off at 12:10pm ET Saturday and will be paired with Jason Dufner.

76 players made the cut at +5 and will play the weekend at the Honda Classic Saturday and Sunday. Noticeably absent will be defending champion Rickie Fowler who shot a second round 76 (+6) finishing at +7 overall.

When Tiger made birdie at the 9th hole and got to within two shots of the lead, he had to have started getting those old feelings back again right? Not so fast, says the man himself.

Tiger Woods goes into the weekend only four shots behind the leader. Is it the tough conditions that have put him in position to win?

Tiger Woods opens 70-71. Safely inside the cut line. In contention entering the weekend. Another step forward.

There is now almost no line for the Monster Stack @RioVegas! Come on down and register while there's no wait.

Tough stretch for Tiger Woods thru the infamous Bear Trap (holes 15, 16, and 17) but there was a silver lining. Double bogey, bogey, birdie is how Woods played that stretch of holes and goes to the par five 18th hole at +1 for the tournament.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

How difficult is PGA National's Champion Course playing? The first round lead was -4. Luke List started Friday at +1, shot a day's best -4 (66) and is solo leader at -3 with only a few groups still out on the golf course.

Bob Harig @BobHarig

Tiger finds green at 16 but is a loooong way away and his birdie putt is way off. Nearly putted it off the green. Makes bogey to drop to +2

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Tiger Woods bitten by the Bear Trap again! Par three 15th Friday playing 164 yards, Tiger hits it in the water right and then misses the bogey putt. Moves from -1 to +1 now four shots from the lead.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Don't look now, but after a huge par save at the 11th hole, Tiger Woods is T-8 and only two shots off the lead with seven holes left!

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

Thru 9 holes at the Honda Classic, Tiger is -1. He shot 34 with 2 birdies and a bogey, hitting 5 of 7 fairways, 6 of 9 greens and needed 13 putts. After taking an unplayable lie on the 2nd hole and hitting a wayward drive on the third, Tiger settled down and made the turn in a tie for 10th, 3 back of Daniel Berger.

Tiger drops 25 footer for birdie at 9 to big cheers and ever-increasing boisterous gallery. Now -1. 34 on front side. 2 birdies 1 bogey
