Tiger Woods is back in action.
The 82-time winner on the PGA Tour competes in his first event since missing the cut at the U.S. Open at Winged Foot last month at the Zozo Championship at Sherwood.
Woods looks to defend his 2019 title — victory No. 82 and the one that tied him with Sam Snead for most titles won on Tour — except this year, the event is being played at Sherwood Country Club instead of in Japan due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Woods tees off for his first round at 1:45 p.m. ET from the 10th tee alongside Matthew Wolff and Xander Schauffele.
Keep up with Woods’ first round shot-by-shot below.
Hole 10 – Par 4
With his first shot of the day, the defending champion drives the ball 241 yards in the left-center fairway. From 127 yards out, Woods’ second shot finds the green, but the ball isn’t as close to the hole as he’d like. He’d have to make a 55-footer for birdie here. Tiger’s first putt is pretty accurate considering the elevation on the green. He sets himself up for a 3-foot, 6-inch putt. It’s good.
TIGER ON THE DAY: even par thru 1 (even par overall)
Hole 11 – Par 5
This one didn’t go exactly to plan. Woods’ drive on 11 travels 292 yards to the right of the fairway somewhere beneath the trees. With his second shot, Woods’ hits the ball left-handed out from under a tree and back the the far right rough. His third shot finds the fairway and lands 122 yards from the hole. His fourth shot sets him up for par despite getting lost in the trees with his drive. The ball finds the green and sets Woods up for a 10-foot, 11-inch putt. His first putt glides to the left of the hole. It’s a second-straight two-putt from 17 inches for his first bogey of the day.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 2 (1 over overall)
Hole 12 – Par 3
Woods drive once again isn’t exactly where he wants it. The ball travels 193 yards to the right rough just off the green.
