That didn’t take long. Defending champ Justin Thomas birdies the 1st hole and he’s to seven under three off the lead. Spieth is three under for the tournament through four holes but he just stuck it close at 5. Should make birdie and jump to four under.
Woods from the right rough with the ball above his feet and fans cleared out around him takes a cut. It finds the left side of the green safely on. Pin is on the right so it’ll be a long long lag for birdie. Still a good shot just finding the green there.
On 9 no need for a driver and Woods hangs back with iron off the tee. It finds the the short grass. All system’s go. Tiger’s putt from 6 feet 5 inches….and it’s good! That’s five birdies on the front nine and Woods is within two. Getting louder and louder out there.
