Who would have thought that Tiger Woods would find himself at the top of the leader board from the Cadillac Championship at the Blue Monster course at Doral? Especially after the way he played last week. Woods started the first round of the tournament on the backside at Doral.   Hey got off to a great start making birdies on his first 2 holes., 10 & 11. His first blemish came on the par 3  12th where he made his first bogey on the day. It wouldn’t be his last either. Woods would make 2 more bogies on the day one of them came on the 13th to make a par of bogies in a row. So Tiger opened his round with a pair of pars and a pair of bogies to take him back to even on the day.

Tiger would finish the backside making 2 more birdies at holes 16 & 18. yes folks he got it back to 2 under par to make the turn. Woods was playing along side of the World’s number one Rory McIlroy and it appeared as though Tiger was making a statement to the youngster who walked off the course less than a week ago.  Woods would play the first 2 holes on the front nine (his 2nd Nine) at 2 under par, making back to back birdies for the second time in his first round. Tiger was making it look easy at this point.

Woods made a bogey at the 3rd and then would go onto par the 5th and 6th holes. He was just a couple of shots off the lead and he knew it. Woods would make birdies at 7 & 8 then go onto par the 9th to finish his first round with a 6 under par 66 and to place himself on top of the leader board. Woods is tied with some great players at 6 under par. The list includes  Freddie Jacobsen, Sergio Garcia, Graeme McDowell and last years Masters winner Bubba Watson who still had one hole to play in his opening round.
