Woods once used that phrase - "winning takes care of everything" - when he returned to No. 1 in the world after his injuries in 2013.

With temperatures in the upper 90s making Aronimink play short, Woods had an 8-under 62 that included a bogey on his next-to-last hole.

"I can accept a bogey on a hole like on the eighth (17th) hole and the bogey on seven wasn't good, but you don't get many opportunities to break 60 and today was one of them and I didn't capitalize". The Monday finish, back things up and looking at how it was.

McIlroy and Woods, who shared the first round lead, could not maintain their torrid pace.
