It was an adventurous first round for Tiger Woods at Bellerive Country Club. Woods began the 100th PGA Championship on the 10th tee and made a bogey. He then made double bogey on the par-4 11th, where he hit his approach shot into the greenside water hazard.
Three over through two holes, Woods got one back with this birdie at the par-4 12th:
He then saved par on the 15th hole after twice clipping trees.
However, another pulled tee shot at the par-3 16th resulted in another bogey. That put him back to 3 over par and six shots off the lead.
Woods was able to make the turn with a little momentum, thanks to this birdie at the par-4 18th.
He then added a second consecutive birdie, at the par-4 first, to get back to 1 over par for the championship.
And after all that, he got back to where he started, back to even par, with this birdie at the par-5 eighth.
Woods concluded his roller-coaster round with a routine par at the ninth hole. He finished his day at even par and was tied for 28th when he signed his card.
