Peterson leads, Woods 6 back

  • Woods shows no sign of rustiness as Wells Fargo Championship beckons

"Tiger Woods is the reason why I play golf", he said, according to the Charlotte Observer. Even on Sunday when I shot 4-under par, I was in some tough spots. He started stroking 5-foot putts between two tees that guided his putter down the proper path.

"I've always been a pretty good putter all of my career, so that's something I've never really anxious too much about", Woods said. He stretched out both arms in mock celebration after his 2-over 73 that got him just inside the cut line. Woods was not touching the hole from distances that used to be automatic for him and, at the very least, should be near-misses for a PGA Tour pro. "I would love to see him play well, just hopefully I can play a little bit better". This was drastically different though, because the only club he was fighting was his putter, which did cooperate on a 27.5-foot birdie on No. 8 that sent a large roar through the crowd.

"I hit the ball fine today", he said.

Woods lost 1.27 strokes on the greens Thursday, ranking 120th in the 156-man field in strokes gained: putting. Needless to say times have changes and Woods is still hoping to return to this peak form.

Woods teed off at the 10th with the day's earlier starters and bogeyed the par-four 11th before following with another blemish on the 14th.

Woods weathered the first six holes despite missing good birdie chances on four of the holes and went to the seventh tee with just one blemish on his scorecard - a bogey on the par-3 fourth where he came up short with his tee shot and missed a 7-footer for par.


Another three-putt fell Woods at the start of the Green Mile, Quail Hollow's long and hard three-hole finish. If I just putt normal I'm right there. "If I make a couple putts, I'd be 2 or 3 under par, which is fine".

One of them is closer to walking away than the other.

Woods said he's confident he will hit his irons better because he has a new set of them in his bag.

John Peterson leads the event at six under after consecutive eagles on 7 and 8. "A few more putts and it's yours, Tiger!" - but the message was the same.

Justin Thomas won the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow previous year, and Woods said the changes leading up to that event have made the course significantly longer and several holes are "more stout".

"This golf course is a lot harder than when I played", Woods said. "I made some good swings, hit some good putts, and 68 is a good way to start".
