Poor putting led to an awful start in the first round in Woods’ first tournament since missing the cut at the British Open.

Woods teed off early Friday morning, hitting his first drive 342 yards straight into the blinding sun. He went on to a birdie-birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie start to remove the remote chance he would miss the cut in consecutive events for the first time as a pro.

Woods followed up what he called probably the worst putting day of his career with a good one, helping go into the weekend at 10-under 134.

Michael Letzig (65) had the clubhouse lead at 12 under. Former Augusta State golfer Vaughn Taylor shot 68 and is one behind Letzig.
