Tiger Woods Struggles at PGA Golf Championship

It’s pretty difficult to have a conversation about golf without mentioning Tiger Woods. Despite having recovered from his back injury, the golf legend seemed to be off his game during Thursday’s first round of the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club. Woods knew he was having trouble, saying after his round that “It wasn’t very good. A lot of bad shots and I never got a putt to the hole. I hit all my lines but just for some reason I thought they were going to be a little bit quicker, and I didn’t make the adjustment well enough. I had plenty of looks to turn my round around and then post something even par, even under par.” In all although he needed 30 putts, he hit just 8 of 14 fairways and 10 of 18 greens. Padraig Harrington noticed the difference in Woods’ game right away, saying that he looked “raw” and “like he needs to play some golf.” With the PGA Championships just beginning, it’s much too early to determine the course of the game but Woods is definitely not off to a good start. Let’s hope he gets his swing back.
