Opening biride for Woods


NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. – Tiger Woods made a confidence-boosting start to the AT&T National with a 6-foot birdie at the first hole, but he gave back the stroke immediately with a bogey at No. 2.

He remains even after parring the third, where he two-putted from 15 feet.

Woods will have to drive the ball straighter than he has been lately to have a realistic chance at Aronimink, which has the thickest rough so far this year on the PGA Tour, according to many players.
