GAINESVILLE, Va. — Tiger Woods showed a rare flash of anger on a mostly stress-free day when his second shot on the eighth hole failed to clear a massive fairway bunker. The best he could do was to squeeze it onto the front of the green.

The mistake on the par-5 hole set up the signature moment of a 5-under 66 Friday in the Quicken Loans National that put Woods in contention for his first victory in nearly two years.

Woods sank the 36-foot birdie putt, which broke hard to the right and trickled over a crest and into the hole. He celebrated with a vintage fist pump and smile.

Woods was tied for fifth, three shots behind Ryo Ishikawa, who was even par for the day before he birdied the last three holes at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. Ishikawa had a 68 to reach 11 under, one shot ahead of Rickie Fowler, who also birdied the last three for a 65, and Kevin Chappell, who shot 68.

Woods is the host and a two-time winner of the Quicken Loans National, which is being played at RTJ for the first time. His 66 was his best score in relation to par this year and only his seventh round in the 60s. In eight previous starts this year, he missed three cuts and withdrew once.

LPGA: Norway’s Suzann Pettersen shot a 3-under 69 in windy morning conditions to take a two-stroke lead after the second round of the Women’s British Open at Turnberry, Scotland.

Pettersen had a 7-under 137 at Turnberry’s Alisa Course.

New Zealand’s Lydia Ko, Taiwan’s Teresa Lu and South Koreans So Yeon Ryu and Jin-Young Ko were tied for second. Lydia Ko, 18, shot a 73 in some of the worst conditions in the rainy afternoon, when the wind swirled and gusted up to 25 mph. Lu and Jin-Young Ko shot 71, and Ryu had a 72.

Sweden’s Maria McBride was the only player to beat Pettersen’s score with a bogey-free 66, but she was still way off the pace after opening with a 79.

Top-ranked Inbee Park, trying to complete a career sweep of the majors, was five strokes back after a 73. Michelle Wie withdrew after aggravating a left ankle injury when she slipped to the ground as she walked off the 13th tee.

CHAMPIONS TOUR: Local favorite Tom Lehman shot an 8-under 64 to open a three-stroke lead in the windy 3M Championship in Blaine, Minnesota.

Lehman had two birdies and an eagle in an early three-hole stretch, added a birdie on the par-4 ninth and closed with three more birdies at TPC Twin Cities, the course he helped Arnold Palmer design.

The 56-year-old Lehman is from Alexandria and played at the University of Minnesota. He won the last of his eight Champions Tour titles last year in the Encompass Championship.

EUROPEAN TOUR: England’s Sam Walker and Spain’s Pontus Widegren each shot 6-under 66 to share the second-round lead in the Madeira Islands Open.

They were at 11-under 133 at Santo da Serra Golf Club. First-round leader Antonio Hortal was a stroke back, following his opening 63 with a 71.
