“I hit a lot of good putts today on my line with the speed I wanted so it didn’t go in but I haven’t done that in a while” Woods said. “So that’s the positive sign to keep doing that. Eventually they’ll start rolling in.”
Woods made his lone blemish at 13 overcooking a 7-iron at the par 3 and had to scramble for bogey. But Woods bounced back with a birdie at 14 and closed with four pars. Snedeker has had a front row seat for much of Woods’s 2018 comeback and came away impressed with his latest effort.
“We were semi-joking today back at the house that I hit so many good chips that haven’t gone in yet” Woods said. “I’m due to hole one and I finally holed one. That was nice.”
