Woods struggles with greens in first round since Masters

  • 'Time to get back to work,' Tiger Woods to resume comeback

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - After two days of poor putting and mounting frustration, Tiger Woods at least had a hint of a self-deprecating sense of humor Friday when his only birdie putt of the second round dropped on his final hole.

The numbers still weren't impressive: Woods made less than 50 feet of total putts on Friday and ranked almost last in the field in strokes gained: putting.

It was the putter that prevented Woods from being closer to the leaders at Quail Hollow on Thursday. 13 and 14. The two are the first players since Jason Day and Brian Vranesh in 2009 to each have multiple consecutive eagles in the same PGA Tour round. Despite sinking a birdie putt from 27 feet on the eighth, he three-putted on both the fourth and the 16th. Those two (Reed and Koepka) missed it left and that's all I was committed to - understanding that putt wasn't going to break.

To a question about the Tesla Model 3, which has had a slower-than-expected rollout, Musk replied: "These questions are so dry". The next day, the Goldman Sachs analyst reiterated his "sell" rating on Tesla and warned the stock could plunge another 30%.

He finished the first round with 31 putts.

'I just struggled with the speed of the greens. Although they are firm, the surfaces are not as quick as they appear, according to Woods. 4 and 16 and was exasperated after missing out on a chance to birdie the hard closing 18th hole, rolling a putt just past the cup. It should be noted that the Wells Fargo Championship is the only regular PGA Tour event where he's missed the 36-hole cut twice.

The 79-times PGA Tour victor who needs three more wins to match Sam Snead's all-time record used a new set of irons, but it was the flatstick that caused his problems. The last time Woods won this tournament was way back in 2007, a two-stroke victory over Steve Stricker. "The golf course has gotten more hard, a lot longer".

United States delays steel, aluminum tariffs until June
These countries as well as Brazil, Australia and Argentina had enjoyed temporary exemptions , which were to expire by May 1. The tariffs have already gone into effect on steel and aluminum imports from China, Russia, Japan, and some other places.

Woods' best finish this season is a tie for second at the Valspar Championship, but said he's still trying to get a gauge for where his overall game is following years of persistent back problems. So I just need to make the adjustments.

"I felt like I've played my way into playing shape now - whether it's the simple act of walking and play, recovery from day to day and playing week to week. Augusta was more wide open than pretty much any event I've played in so far this year". "I tried to make sure I kept flexible, and then I started grinding and trying to get my muscle strength back and eventually my speed and I got them all back", Woods said.
