Players Championship 2018: Tiger Woods reveals why he's disappointed after first round

Players Championship 2018: Tiger Woods reveals why he's disappointed after first round

A week after he needed 126 putts to finished tied for 55th at the Wells Fargo Championship, Woods did find his putter on the back nine, saving par three of four times from eight feet or longer, including on the final hole.

"That's golf, unfortunately", Woods said after signing for a 1-under-par 71 that left him at 1 under through 36 holes and on the cut line.

After playing his first 13 holes in even par, the 47-year-old's day started to unravel beginning on the par-4 14th, where he almost pushed his tee shot into the water left, laid up sort of the green, then took four more strokes to find the bottom of the cup. - The 45 Players Championship got underway Thursday at the TPC at Sawgrass Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Player announcements are expected over the next few weeks and organisers admitted yesterday that the presence of a massive star like Woods to send ticket sales through the roof.

"Either way, there is enormous expectation about the event and we expect healthy numbers - many thousands of fans - to come to Ballyliffin in July". "Towards the back nine it started getting a little sparse".

"Once he fixes a couple things, I think he's still not real happy with the way he's putting from what he tells me. I think he's very close to winning again".

"I think it is going to be an incredible event and it will surprise everybody".

Day, a victor last week at the Wells Fargo Championship, fired five birdies in a blemish-free round to sit at eight-under for the championship, two strokes back from co-leaders Charl Schwartzel (66) and Patrick Cantlay (68) in a share of fifth spot midway through day two.

On Sunday, the PGA Tour announced the marquee grouping of Woods, Mickelson and Fowler - a rare Woods-Mickelson matchup in the early rounds of a tournament. "I enjoy playing it, and I feel like I should play well here". "So I tried to kind of roll out and go real slow".

"Boy, it was nice to turn the round completely around there", he said.

However, just being good enough to make the cut isn't exactly what Woods had in mind when he began the process of returning from four back surgeries over a 37-month period from 2014-17. Mickelson followed up a 79 with 73, while Fowler made back-to-bag double-bogeys on the back nine to finish at one-over for the two days.

"Tomorrow they will be out early, I'm sure, and they will be into it and it will be fun for Phil and Rickie and myself", Woods said. Any chance to gain momentum Friday was lost on missed putts from 10, 8 and 12 feet, respectively, on the 17th, 18th and second holes.
