When asked after the Pro-Am about the state of his golf game, Tiger Woods responded by saying “My Game Feels Good.” Woods teed off at the Honda Classic this morning on the 10th tee. He started his round at 7:35 Am and has struggled to find a round of even par.
Tiger pared his first 8 holes and then found his first birdie on the 18th, his 9th. He made the turn at 1 under par and it looked as though his game was good. He then pared his 10th hole of the tournament (number 1) and made a double bogey at the 2nd hole.
Woods was at 1 over par before he found a hard-fought birdie on the par 5 3rd hole and just like that he was back to even par in his round. Woods would make par at the par 5, 4th and then bogey at the par 3 5th.
Tiger isn’t haven’t a typical Tiger of old round. Heck we may never see the Tiger of old again. He made a par on 6 and 7 and then made a bogey on the par 4 8th. At the time of this article Woods was tied for 63rd and 7 strokes off the lead held by Rory Sabbatini at 5 under.
Tiger may think his game feels good, but he can’t get it to translate on the course. Not yet anyway. There is still plenty of golf to be played at the Honda Classic and who knows what tomorrow will bring to the Tiger. He is currently at plus 2 with one hole left in his first round.
Update: Woods would make birdie on his 18th hole (number 9) to finish his day at 1 over par.
