“I shot about the score that I should have shot today,” said Woods. “I didn’t really have anything going through the middle part of the round. I was just hanging in there.” He did not have a birdie until the 14th hole and could not find a rhythm.

He only hit the fairway half the time. “I hit some poor tee shots and didn’t really give myself a chance,” said Woods.

After his first competitive round with the new putter Woods said, “I rolled it well today. I hit a lot of good puts early that didn’t go in,” said Woods. He also said that he misread a couple greens on the back nine, “but overall I hit a lot of good putts.”

Woods remained hopeful to turn things around in the second round. “Most of the good scores are shot in the morning. Hopefully I can go out there and do it myself.”

About Tim Furgiuele

My first love was baseball. I made the Junior Varsity Team my Freshman year of High School. That following Summer my Dad brought me to play my first round of Golf. I immediately fell in love with the game and became obsessed. I found myself playing nine holes before I had to be on the field for warmups. Golf was always on my mind. I began to follow the World’s Best and learn the mechanics and fundamentals of the game. I became obsessed with getting better. As my interests as a player in the game increased so did my interest as a fan. I began to religiously follow the PGA Tour and the best players in the world. I was memorized by their perfect swings and outstanding short games. This was just the beginning of my obsession with the beautiful game of Golf.
