LEMONT, Ill. – Tiger Woods could not contain his exasperation at his first hole Friday morning at the BMW Championship. It wasn't over his ball striking, though. It was with Cog Hill's greens.

After leaving an 18-foot birdie putt short, he softly barked: 'THEY'RE . . . SO . . . SLOW!'

Woods putted out for par.

Woods called the greens spotty after his pro-am round Wednesday and commented on their speed after Thursday's round. The course is an issue with both the No. 1 and No. 2 players in the world. Phil Mickelson expressed frustration with the course's overall design after the first round.
