He missed birdie chances of six feet, four feet and seven feet, then missed from three feet for par on the 17th, which left him exasperated.

At least Woods is in contention.

Tiger then holed out from 95-yards for an eagle on the par-5 11th to jump to 5-under for the tournament and electrify the crowd in Ohio.

"I missed a lot of short putts, which is something I don't normally do, which is just frustrating, " he said.

McIlroy needed to go low to avoid a weekend off and he made good progress over the first half of his round, atoning for a missed chance at the 10th with three birdies over the next four holes.

"I wanted to hit that putt, I wanted to keep it going because I was in the rhythm of the round, " Woods said.

Stanley, who won the Quicken Loans National last summer, was atop the leaderboard for much of the day and was starting to pull away until a poor tee shot at No. 6 led to bogey.

Day was at 8-under 136, along Hideki Matsuyama (71), Wesley Bryan (68) and J.B. Holmes (66).

After the miss on 12, Woods said, "I missed everything". Defending champ Jason Dufner, wearing a ball cap that read, "Save the Crew" in reference to the Columbus MLS team whose owner is threatening to move the team to Austin, Texas, also missed the cut. He started the week 4-over through his first seven holes in Thursday's opening round and is 9-under in his last 29 holes. "I really didn't sit down as I was walking back and forth to keep it loose and keep myself warm because these are the things I don't know yet".
