Tiger Woods Struggles At The PGA Championship

Tiger Woods had a strong start but it was derailed by a late round meltdown in the first round of the PGA Championship at the Atlanta Athletic Club.

Tiger ended the day with a 77 and the 7 over par puts at the bottom of the golfers from the morning round.  Woods sits far back of the leader, Steve Sticker – who shot a 7-under 63 – matching a major record.  Tiger set his own record, a 77 is the highest opening round he has ever shot in a major.

Woods had a good few holes to start the day, birding on the 10th, 12th, 14th holes and was tied at one point for the lead at 3 under par.  Tiger shot bogeys all day including 3 double bogeys that brought him from first to worst.  Tiger will have to turn his game around and shoot flawless golf over the next 3 days if he has any hope of capturing his 15th major.

Woods is now in danger of seeing his PGA Tour season come to an end Friday. Woods has never missed the cut in 13 previous PGA Championships, but if he fails to finish among the top 70 and ties, he’ll be headed home for the weekend.
