Tiger Woods hasn’t had his best stuff in his return to the PGA Tour this week at the Northern Trust, but he’s been just good enough to make the weekend.
The 15-time major champion made the cut directly on the number at 3 under after a 3-under 68 on Thursday and a ho-hum even-par 71 on Friday at TPC Boston in the first of three events that comprise the Tour’s season-ending FedEx Cup playoffs.
Woods, a two-time FedEx Cup champion, is back in action early on Saturday morning, teeing off alongside defending FedEx Cup champion Rory McIlroy. Follow Woods’ round with shot-by-shot analysis below.
Hole 1 – Par 4
Moving Day, let’s get it. Iron off the tee here for Tiger and it’s right down the middle of the fairway. The Big Cat struggled to hit greens from the short stuff yesterday, we’ll see how he fairs with his ballstriking today on the first. Tiger must’ve had a big breakfast because he’s licking his chops after this tasty approach. He lands it hole-high and spins it back just a bit, leaving a four-footer for birdie. Wow, that’s an awful putt and a real missed opportunity. Left it outside the cup the entire way. Par.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 under thru 1 (3 under overall).
Watch Tiger and Rory warm up on the range.
