June 2 (UPI) -- Tiger Woods had a beautiful shot for eagle and carded a 5-under-par in the second round of the Memorial Friday in Dublin, Ohio.

Woods made the eagle on No. 11, a 567-yard par-5 at Muirfield Village Golf Club. He has won the tournament five times during his decorated career. Woods is also 5-under-par for the tournament and is tied for 24th entering Saturday's third round.

The 14-time major winner hit a 306-yard drive into the rough on the right of the fairway, before sending his next shot 161 yards. He approached his third shot standing 95 yards from the hole.

Woods pulled out his wedge and lofted his next shot just past the hole but got it to roll back toward the pin, before it dropped in. The huge crowd exploded in a celebration after the brilliant effort.

He went on to par the next three holes before picking up a birdie on No. 15. Woods made par on 16 and 18, but bogeyed No. 17.

Woods tees off with Patrick Reed at 11:20 a.m. Saturday at Muirfield. Kyle Stanley and Joaquin Niemann are tied for the lead at 11-under-par.
