Woods birdied the 15th hole then stuffed his tee shot within six feet of the hole at the par-3 16th hole but missed the putt, keeping him three strokes behind the leaders. Poulter, through 17 holes, is 9-under par, tied with Westwood, who has played eight holes.
The news wasn't so good for first-round leader Fred Couples, who finished with three straight bogeys, three-putting the last three holes to fall seven shots behind the leaders. Couples followed his opening 66 with a 75 on the clear, breezy day.
Phil Mickelson is at 5-under par through six holes while 60-year old Tom Watson has fallen six shots off the lead.
