Woods stumbles late, shoots even par

RSS

AUGUSTA, Ga. – What was shaping up to be one of Tiger Woods’ best opening-rounds at Augusta National was marred by bogeys at his final two holes for an even-par 72.

Woods was 2 under through 16 holes when he stumbled at the final two. In 18 Masters he has just one opening round in the 60s – a 68 in 2010 – and just seven under-par cards.

Old swing patterns were to blame for Woods’ pedestrian first round. He hit 12 of 18 fairways, 6 of 14 greens and averaged 1.61 putts, which was slightly better than the field average.

Woods is five back of Lee Westwood, who shot 67.
