PLAYERS: Nick Watney
The common phrase this year - ''Tiger's back'' - took on a new meaning Friday at The Barclays. Woods felt a twinge in his lower back when he awoke and felt pain throughout the second round at Bethpage Black. He managed to overcome a bogey-bogey start and get within range of Nick Watney and the resurgent Sergio Garcia. Garcia, who won last week for his first PGA Tour win in four years, had a 68.

Woods had a 69 and was three shots out of the lead going into the weekend, where some two dozen players were separated by only five shots.
