Tiger Woods Frustrated with Performance


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Tiger Woods’ first-round 71 at The Players was the “highest score (he) could have shot,” and, considering his frustration, his demeanor after his round was about as good as could be expected.
Despite numerous missed putts, Woods was buoyed by his ballstriking. He hit 71 percent of his fairways, a marked improvement over his season average, and nearly 70 percent of his greens in regulation.
“I hit the ball well today, I really did,” Woods said. “It's just unfortunately I didn't capitalize on my opportunities today. I had quite a few of them.”
