Tiger Woods Falls Down on His First Hole Friday at Chambers Bay
After a first-round 80 at Chambers Bay yesterday, Tiger Woods is desperately searching for signs of life this morning. But so far, he’s literally tumbling, and not just down the leaderboard.
Woods found the fairway with his opening tee shot today, on the 10th hole, but pulled his second shot well left into the fescue. His ball came to rest on a severe sidehill (there are a lot of those at Chambers Bay) and he had a bit of trouble getting his footing.
Woods walked away from the 10th hole without any significant harm done, just another opening hole bogey. He got a shot back with a birdie at the driveable par-4 12th hole, but made bogey on 14 and was 1-over par on the day through five holes and 11-over for the tournament about midway through his second round.
