Despite panning on making a grand comeback to golf, Tiger Woods failed miserably in the first round at Frys.Com Open. Woods marked his first PGA Tour appearance in seven weeks with a two-over-par 73 record, making a double-bogey, two bogeys and just two birdies.
Woods made a quite promising start and hit a good putt, making the stands explode with supportive shouts. Before the tournament, the 14-time major winner said that he has done some major work, including extensive practice with swing coach Sean Foley. According to the golfer, he played 36 holes a day while he was on a temporary break.
But though Woods did quite good on Thursday, his results were wiped off by his awful performance on the greens.
Competing in a tournament which mostly brought together rookies, Tiger was edged out by his rivals. The 2010 British Open winner, South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen recorded a 71 and the world’s top amateur golfer, Patrick Cantlay, carded a 69.
However, Woods is still optimistic. Though admitting that it was his worst putting round ever, he is going to come from six shots back and out up a good performance in the next round. Tiger still hopes that we could get a victory.
