Woods Looking Better

Tiger Woods looks to have forgotten his woes from last week after suffering his worst ever tournament result.

For a brief moment the world number one was top of the leader board after making three birdies from his opening four holes. Something not many had expected coming into the USPGA event.

This however was short lived as he made two bogies on the back nine and took a penalty shot on the fifth after hitting a horrid tee shot. A good eight foot putt on the ninth put Woods back under par for the day and something to build on over the weekend.

“I got off to a quick start and all of a sudden I felt like I could shoot something in the 60s.

“It didn’t quite happen. I lost a few shots out there but I made a nice birdie (final hole) and finished under par for the day.

“I played too good not to shoot under-par. It would have been very disappointing and frustrating to end up at even par with as well as I played today.”

A good finish for Woods at Whistling Straits could put him back into an automatic Ryder Cup position and will be doing everything possible to not leave his Ryder Cup hopes in the hands of Corey Pavin and his wildcard picks.

Woods however is look set to make the weekend even if it’s only because the early morning delay means he won’t be able to finish his Friday round.
