Tiger Woods made the cut Friday at the PGA Championship, though he kept it close, shooting a one-under 69 to move to three over for the tournament.

Woods was simply combating through pain thru the whole lot of the round, but he still has a intention in mind.

“there may be a undertaking,” he instructed ESPN’s Michael Eaves after the second spherical (h/t Jason Sobel of the action network). “The assignment is to move ahead and win this element one way or the other.”

Woods additionally informed Eaves he could not load up on his proper leg, similar to Thursday whilst the star golfer began to noticeably limp about halfway thru the round.

“There’s a lot of things [I can’t do],” he said. “That’s just the way it is. Luckily over the course of my career, I’ve used my hands quite well and gotta rely on feel and hit shots. When you’re out there, you know, it’s about hitting the ball the right number and getting it done. It wasn’t exactly the way I wanted it to be, it wasn’t pretty.”

It was similar to what he said after the first round.

“I just can’t load it,” he told reporters. “Loading hurts, pressing off it hurts, walking hurts and twisting hurts. It’s just golf. I don’t play that, if I don’t do that, then I’m all right.”

Unlike Thursday, however—when Woods shot a four-over 74 and had five bogeys and just one birdie on the back nine—the veteran golfer fought through the pain to shoot under par Friday.

Even Rory McIlroy was impressed by his resolve:

As for Woods winning in Tulsa, well, that’s a long shot. He would have to make up a double-digit stroke deficit to catch current leader Will Zalatoris, which seems unlikely given Woods’ physical limitations.

But the fight is still there. That’s plenty impressive enough.
