Tiger Woods stuns golf with second-lowest opening round ever

American Brandt Snedeker

Woods' first round at the tournament was his best round in 11 years.

Former NFL quarterback and current CBS commentator Tony Romo has known Woods for years, and he said in an interview with Golfweek that they bonded over back issues.

Woods and McIlroy still had to hit the shots and make the putts. Briefly, the model takes account of the current form of each golfer as well as the difficulty of their remaining holes, and probabilities are calculated from 10K simulations.

However, Xander Schauffele had another great day as he came close to holing a wedge on his second hole, had a 40-foot birdie putt in the middle of his round and finished with a 6-under for the lowest 36-hole score of his career.

"Sometimes if a major season doesn't go your way and you haven't done what you wanted to do, it's just a bit of a reset, let's go again, reassess your goals", McIlroy said.

His lawyers say Papadopoulous acted out of a "misguided sense of loyalty to his master" and to preserve his career options in the new administration.

A day after opening with a course-record equalling 62 at Aronimink Golf Club and sharing the lead, Woods stalled during an even-par 70 that left him at eight-under-par and five shots off the pace.

"I've hit hundreds of millions of putts [with the Cameron]; I've had it since '99", Woods said.

The wide fairways and temperatures in the 90s allowed the golf ball to seemingly fly forever and made for such low scoring that 48 players in the 69-man field broke par. He birdied three of the last four for a 67.

The BMW championship is a no cut event, meaning that everyone who is playing this weekend will need to put together a strong four rounds. Rose had birdies on three of his first four holes and added four more in a blemish-free round. The crowd was much thinner for McIlroy, but those fans saw quite a show. He holed an 8-foot birdie putt on No. 2, part of a run six straight birdies. "I putted well. Basically did everything well and looking forward to getting back out there early in the morning and trying to get it going again".
