Woods Shoots Even Par at Windy PGA National

Jason Day of Australia reacts after missing an eagle putt on the second green of the Pebble Beach Golf Links during the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am golf tournament Sunday Feb. 11 2018 in Pebble Beach Calif. (AP

BC-GLF-Honda Classic, 123 Woods shoots solid 70 at windy Honda; Noren has early leadAP Photo FLWL113, FLWL104, FLWL105, FLLAU201, FLWL116, FLWL111, FLWL106Eds: APNewsNow. Woods' short game is still tidy, but he said that his iron play is vastly improved, and it needed to be, given the challenging conditions in the first round.

Profanity, a club slam into the turf in frustration and basic errors were among what followed but so too, crucially, was plenty of reason for encouragement.

An emotional Bubba Watson, after sinking an eight-foot par putt on the 72nd hole to secure his first victory in two years, collapsed into the arms of his long-time caddie. Wind whipped around the infamously testing site, where the greens are in strangely poor condition.

Said Snedeker: "I expect to see this as his baseline, and it'll only get better from here".

He says, "It was really nice because I got to talk to Tiger Woods and I got an autograph hat from him but what really made it special was he really cared".

"I'm very pleased. Today was not easy".

Conditions are expected to only get more hard, more wind-whipped and more burned out, which is why the winning score here has been single-digits under par four of the past five years. Water comes into play on several holes, and the "Bear Trap" of holes 15-17 is one of the PGA Tour's toughest crunch time tests. It was very positive today.

Noren is priced slightly better than Hatton this week and that should open the door for him to be a popular betting pick.




After birdieing two of his first four holes, Woods jumped into a share of the lead. "Nice fucking putt" was the audible cry towards himself as he stepped from the green.

Jason Day beat him in a playoff that ended the next morning on the sixth extra hole. Vast galleries and cynical onlookers thought he may unravel.

Woods teed off on the 10th and had two birdies and a bogey in his first nine holes.

Woods was more accurate off the tee, hitting 50 per cent of the fairways.

Not a bad weekend at the Genesis, especially for my optimal lineups.

"Especially since I know how to play the golf course and wish I could play but I was unfortunately physically debilitated, I could not compete". Frittelli is a 27-year-old, who has yet to win on the PGA level, but you can't doubt his current form and his consistency to stay in the thick of the field.

There may be few more popular winners this week than Morgan Hoffman. A team spokesman said the league understood the special circumstances surrounding the number and its significance to the Nance family and agreed the change should take place. "It has been tough to deal with because health is the most important thing in my life".
