Tiger Woods’ Epic Comeback At The PGA Championship: What You Need To Know!

1 Mins read

Tiger Woods, ever the competitor, battled back after a shaky start to his first round at the PGA Championship. While his opening 1-over 72 leaves him with work to do, the resilience he displayed is a promising sign.

Woods started slow, struggling with wayward tee shots on the back nine at Valhalla Golf Club. He battled hard to stay around par, even escaping his first three holes with just a single bogey. This grit is a hallmark of his game, and it kept him in contention early.

As the round progressed, Woods found a groove. A well-placed tee shot and a converted birdie putt on the par-3 third brought him back to even par. He followed that up with another birdie on the iconic par-4 13th, showcasing his touch on approach shots.

However, a bogey on the 15th hole after finding the rough sent him back over par. A pair of late three-putt bogeys left a sour taste in his mouth, but Woods remains within striking distance of the projected cut line.

While a repeat of his historic 2000 victory at Valhalla might be a tall order, making the cut for a second straight major is certainly achievable. Woods knows this, emphasizing the importance of grinding it out over the long haul of a major championship.

He’ll need to find more consistency off the tee on Friday, but Woods’ never-say-die attitude is a powerful weapon. The roar of the crowd as he striped his opening drive was a reminder of the aura he carries, and if he can recapture some of that early magic, a weekend charge at Valhalla isn’t out of the question.
