Breaking down Tiger Woods first round at Quail Hollow

Tiger Woods’ first round at the Wells Fargo Championship ended the same way it started – at Even par.  As seems to be the case with Tiger in 2018, he hit the ball extremely well but couldn’t seem to hit a putt.

After three great looks at birdie through the first three holes (all misses) Tiger found himself in some trouble on 4 and bogeyed the par 3.   After two more chances at birdie and pretty easy pars, Tiger stepped on the 7th tee and smoke his drive leading to two birdies in a row on 7 and 8.  There is no doubt that Woods left some shots out there but still had to be overall pleased with his 1-under 34 on the front.


The 10th hole is no doubt the hole that Tiger would want back as he bogeyed the semi-easy par 5.  Tiger then pared four in a row, including a very nice par on 14 giving him the momentum to birdie the par 5 15th.  Perhaps too excited, Tiger then bogeyed the 16th and made a very nice approach on 17 and made a great par putt.  Other than the 10th, another shot that Tiger would want back is the 18th.  Tiger stuffed it within 7 feet and then pulled the putt that frankly wasn’t even close definitely wasting a shot and finishing the round at an even par 71.

I really like Tiger to post a low score tomorrow as I think this bubble is bound to burst.  He is hitting the ball further and better than maybe ever just seems seem to make a putt.  Look for that to change tomorrow at 7:40am.
