Ominous opening round by confident Tiger

Phil Casey

TIGER Woods had to settle for an opening round of 70 in the 77th Masters, but that could still be bad news for the rest of the field.

Woods has started with a 70 on four previous occasions at Augusta National, going on to win in 1997, 2001 and 2002 before finishing 'only' sixth in 2009.


The world number one, who has won three times already this season and is seeking a fifth Green Jacket, carded three birdies and one bogey and said: "It was a good day, a solid day.


"I thought the greens were a little bit tough in the sense that they just didn't have the sheen to them, they didn't have the roll out. A couple of putts, we were talking about it in our group, just weren't that fast.


"It was benign, especially starting out. The wind picked up in the middle part of the round and it got a little bit swirly there at Amen Corner, as usual.


"But overall I think the biggest challenge today was just the speed of the greens. They just weren't quite there. They looked it, but just weren't quite putting it.


"We have a long way to go. It's going to change dramatically by tomorrow afternoon (when Woods will be in the penultimate group) and I just have to make the adjustments."
