But Woods got some revenge on the course when he holed a 92-foot putt for birdie at the par-3 fourth. It was the longest made putt on the PGA Tour in at least three years, and the longest for Woods since 2001 at the Tour Championship, played then at Champions Golf Club in Houston.
"It's just one of those things, I just tried to get the ball close," he said. "I can't remember the last time I made a putt from that far. Just one of those things."
Although he hit 10 of 14 fairways, Woods hit just 9 of 18 greens but made 26 putts.
"You just couldn't get the ball close," Woods said. "From that standpoint, it [course conditions] was right on the teetering point. I think some of the guys will probably be pretty upset about some of the pins. But if they were in better spots, I think it would have been fine."
