PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Tiger Woods had what he called "easily" his best round hitting the ball, and he didn't even break par at the Honda Classic.
Alex Noren and Webb Simpson shared the lead at 4-under 66 in steady wind on a penal PGA National golf course, and felt as though they had to work hard for it. Both dropped only one shot Thursday, which might have been as great an accomplishment as any of their birdies.
"When you stand on certain tee boxes or certain approach shots, you remember that, `Man, this is one of the hardest courses we play all year, including majors,'" said Simpson, who is playing the Honda Classic for the first time in seven years.
