Tiger Woods at a major will always turn heads (even if there aren’t all that many heads on property this week at TPC Harding Park to turn). When Woods showed up at the PGA Championship on Thursday, he looked fit, fluid and sharp – and pain-free – from the get-go.
Woods opened the first round with a birdie, added another on the 13th and then offset his three bogeys with three more birdies. His opening 2-under 68 left him very much in the conversation.
Woods drew an afternoon tee time for Friday, and once again will play alongside Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas. We’re tracking his second round, shot for shot, so keep with us here.
No. 1 – Par 4
Folks, the opening tee shot is ideal. Middle of the fairway, and we’re already getting excited.
We saw some shades of old Tiger on Thursday at TPC Harding Park, but if you’re interested in how his swing has evolved over the years, take a look at this montage and get fired up for his Friday round.
