Because he hit only three of 14 fairways and nine of 18 greens in regulation, a laughing Woods summed up his round as “gross.”
“It was a struggle out there,” he said. “I didn’t hit it worth a darn all day. I was really struggling trying to find anything that was the resemblance of a golf swing. But I was scoring. I was chipping, putting, I was grinding.”
Woods made four birdies — all after hitting his tee shots into the rough — and two bogeys: at the par-3 11th and the par-3 16th after pulling both iron shots left.
