Tiger Woods in position to end 11 year drought

Tiger Woods in position to end 11 year drought

In fact, a different Woods might have lost his patience and cool, given the opportunities he let pass.

Woods had three birdies on each nine, with a bogey 5 on the fifth his only blight.

The 146-yard approach gave Woods a tap-in birdie as his Italian playing partner failed to save par from a greenside bunker.

"I can't control anything that they're doing with -- whatever they're going to do, they're going to do", said Koepka. "So I can live with that". "I've historically played the front nine really well and that sets up an easier time on the back nine". "I would say the more important shots were probably the two par putts on four and five ... you keep momentum on your side if you make them".

Saturday projections called for strong thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon, when the leaders would normally be entering the second nine of the tournament.

Another shot behind was Brooks Koepka, who has won three of the last six majors and had a 69 despite four bogeys.

Harding finished round one at three-under par, a score that saw him hold the lead, alongside a handful of other golfers, for a large part of day one.

In the latest weather forecast issued by the tournament, a broken line of strong to severe thunderstorms - with potential for heavy rain and strong winds - is expected to reach the Augusta area at approximately 4 p.m. before pushing East by 7 p.m. Winds will increase ahead of the storms, with gusts expected to reach 25-30 miles per hour later in the day.

Uber will follow Lyft in going public. "But a good business doesn't necessarily mean a good investment". While we have had unparalleled growth at scale, we are just getting started".

They are followed by Woods, Dustin Johnson, Justin Harding and Xander Schauffele at 6 under.

Play will begin at 9:30pm (AEST) with the leaders to tee off at 11:20pm (AEST).

Scott had just hit his drive when the announcement came to suspend play. It doesn't get much better than Molinari's four-hole stretch on Saturday's back nine.

After a 30-minute delay, Woods came out and missed the 5-footer.

"Obviously it's nice to be a little bit ahead, but you might just need one hole to change", Molinari added. Since then he's had 13 birdies without dropping a shot. "That's the way it goes". The second one effectively pushed him out of the race for good when Woods birdied the same hole. Not the weather delay. And that's exactly the kind of demeanor that's going to serve him well on Sunday, where he'll be playing a road game against the legions of patrons pulling for Tiger.

On a day of unprecedented low scoring at Augusta, Woods carded a 67 - his best round at Augusta in eight years - to reach 11 under and share second with Tony Finau, one of three men to shoot 64.

Former Golf Channel statistician Justin Ray highlights Molinari's incredible recent run in majors, pointing out the Italian is combined for 31-under across his last 163 holes played in majors.
