So what putter will Woods use at 1:20 p.m. on Thursday? “I don’t think he’s made the decision yet” LaCava said. “We’ll know when he tees off tomorrow.”
Tiger follows up his birdie at No. 9 with…another birdie. Woods slipped slightly on No. 13 carding his first bogey of the day. But on 14 he tapped in for birdie. And his clubhead speed on the drive at 14 was measured at more than 129 mph the fastest speed recorded on the PGA Tour this season.
It will be interesting to track the Woods intimidation factor inside the ropes. At the Honda Classic Brandt Snedeker and Patton Kizzire both missed the cut. So did Spieth and Henrik Stenson at the Valspar.
