Tiger Woods erased concerns about his ailing back at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Now the concern is focused on his putter. Woods is already 5 strokes behind the leaders, and it’s because of his putter, not his back.
Woods will be tested once play resumes. He made it though 10 holes and will be forced to play 26 holes on day 2. If his back holds up and he can find a way to make putts, he just might be able to make up the strokes needed to put himself in contention.
He is striking the ball well, and showing no signs of the back problems that forced him to withdraw from the Honda.
Jason Dufner finds himself a top the leader-board, tied with 3 others at 3 under par.
there are currently 8 others one stroke back at 2 under par. Woods finished his day with a bogey on the 10th hole in round one. He probably wishes the horn sounded a little earlier.
The last thing Tiger needed to do was leave the course with a bogey on his mind. A good nights sleep may be just what Woods needs to erase the memories of round one.
The weather delay on day one could end up helping Woods. If he can shake off his poor start and start day two strong, you never know what he can do.
