Tiger Woods reiterated his delight that he is even able to be back out on the course after he made the cut at the US PGA Championship.
Woods had a difficult first round at Southern Hills County Club, carding 74 to leave him with plenty of work to do to make the weekend.
Yet the 15-time major champion recovered in fine fashion on Friday, going round in 69 to leave him at three over and T53.
While a push for a fifth US PGA Championship title – and a first since 2007 – seems unlikely, Woods is relishing being back at the biggest events.
He returned at the Masters last month just over a year after suffering serious injuries in a car accident in California.
"Well, just the fact that I'm able to play golf again and play in our biggest championships," he said after his round on Friday.
"As I alluded to earlier, you guys all know, I'm not going to be playing a lot of tournaments going forward. They're going to be the biggest tournaments.
"I want to be able to play the major championships. I've always loved playing them.
"Coming back here to a place that I've had success on, to play against the best players in the world, that's what we all want to be able to do.
"Fortunately enough, I'm able to somehow do it. I've had a great PT staff that have put Humpty Dumpty back together."
Bubba Watson matched the lowest round in PGA Championship history as he shot 63 in his second round to propel himself up the leaderboard.
And Watson's effort is something Woods hopes he can replicate over the weekend to put himself in contention.
"I'm hoping I can shoot a number like Bubba did today," he added. "That's where my mind is at right now. I've got to do some things physically to get myself there tomorrow and it will be a quick turnaround.
"That's the reward you get for just making the cut. You get to tee off early the next day, and hopefully I can get it in. The weather is supposed to be a little more difficult and be a little more testy, and hopefully that's the case.
"If that's the case, hopefully I can post a good round and at least move up the board, get myself within striking distance on Sunday. I'm pretty far back, but you just never know.
"Major championships are hard to win. We've seen guys with big leads or have made big comebacks, so you just never know."
