Conners Leads At The Valspar

  • Conners Leads At The Valspar

During the first round of the Valspar Championship, Woods sent his tee shot on the Par-4 16th hole left and into the trees.

Kelly Kraft, Nick Watney and South Korea's Whee Kim are tied for second at 3 under, while Keegan Bradley, Scotland's Russell Knox and Jimmy Walker share the fifth spot at 2 under.

"For about fourteen holes I played really, really good and then I had some amusing stuff coming in", Scott told the US PGA website.

Tiger Woods makes it look easy as he blasts out of the woods during the first round of the Valspar.

Yes, I know that sounds insane to say, but if there is one course that Woods knows how to not only minimize his mistakes but take advantage of, it's Augusta National.

Woods, a four-time Masters champ, is now tied for the third-best odds in the field. "That's how hard it is".

But both Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth endured a miserable opening day of the tournament. Only six other players had a higher score.

Conners managed just fine, taking advantage of the chance to compete a tournament he wasn't sure he would be playing. I drove it well, hit a lot of good iron shots.

Despite wincing down the fairway, Woods recovered to make par. His ball nestled near a tree, giving Woods an nearly impossible angle to get to the green in two. Also at 70 were Justin Rose, Masters champion Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott and Steve Stricker, who won last week on the PGA Tour Champions.

Tiger Woods says the continued success of Phil Mickelson serves as an example to all golfers entering the latter stages of their careers. He has shown steady progress, and this might have been his most steady performance, even with four bogeys.

One fan's reaction to the shot was priceless...

The good news for Woods is that it was that kind of struggle for just about everyone. After a poor second shot, he left himself with 11 feet to save par on the seventh hole, but made the putt, remaining in the lead.

After his drive bounced on a cart path and clattered deep into the trees, coming to rest on leaves and pine straw, Woods was concerned his club would snap against a nearby pine on his follow-through.

Five years Mickelson's junior, Woods is feeling his way back into the sport after a lengthy absence due to surgery on a persistent back problem.

"It didn't feel very good". He finished the back nine one-under-par and saw much of the same on the front nine, shooting two birdies, two bogeys and the rest for par.

Meanwhile, Golf Digest have named their top 100 golf courses in Ireland for 2018 with Royal County Down and Royal Portrush's Dunluce Links holding onto their places as the top two. Not too often in Florida do you find elevation.
