Perfect condition almost perfect Woods


DUBLIN, Ohio – Tiger Woods had some momentum until he got to the par-4 18th, his ninth hole.

After finding the bunker left of the green, Woods slightly misjudged his third shot and left himself five feet above the hole, from where he could not putt aggressively.

With a quiet gallery of perhaps 2000 people looking on, Woods dribbled his putt towards the hole but missed, settling for a bogey.

It was his first bogey of the day, and he goes to the front nine (his back nine) at 2-under, eight strokes behind current leader Ricky Fowler, who has played 11 holes.

Conditions are perfect, with no wind and hardly a cloud in the sky, although it feels humid and an afternoon thunderstorm would not surprise.
