Putter lives to see another day


NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. – Tiger Woods says he has figured out what he was doing wrong with his putting in the first two round at the AT&T National.

“I actually found something with my stroke,” he said after recovering from an “awful“ start to shoot even-par 70 in the third round at Aronimink.

“Every putt coming in I hit on line with the right pace, something I hadn’t done yet this week.

“It was more mechanical. I kept blocking putts the first two days. Today I finally got it into position where I could release the blade again.”

Woods says the penny dropped on the eighth green, where he faced a 5-footer.

“The putt I hit there at eight, I was either going to make that putt or the putter was gong to be winged into the water. It was one of those two.”

The putt dropped and the putter stayed dry.
