“I gave a little premature step” said Woods who gave it a fist pump and sent fans into delirium. Woods blasted a fairway wood just over the green at the 611-yard par-5 5th and nearly chipped in for eagle. He saved the heroics for the chip-in at the 9th.
Woods who this week benched his Scotty Cameron Newport 2 putter that helped him win 13 of his 14 major championships got off to an auspicious start on day No. 2 of his experiment with a TaylorMade TP Ardmore 3 mallet putter by holing a 24-foot birdie putt at No. 10.
And so Woods continues to search for what’s missing on the green. “Once I start to get that ball rolling on my lines” he said “then I’ll be back to putting like I was.”
