POTOMAC Md. — As Tiger Woods stalked the line of his pitch shot from a collection area right of the 18th green at TPC Potomac on Friday morning Marc Leishman turned to Bill Haas the third member of the grouping and predicted Woods was going to hole it.
“People want to talk about finishing all the time” Haney said. “You can’t finish something you don’t start. Seven shots behind after one round it’s a little hard to win a tournament. It’s not impossible but your margin for error just gets wiped away.”
It reached a fever pitch when Tiger Woods chipped in for birdie at the 9th hole and a chant of “Let’s-Go-Tiger” broke out among the crowd. “I can confirm he’s back” said his playing partner Brandt Snedeker. “The roars are back.”
