Woods' driving woes persist at Genesis Open

Woods' driving woes persist at Genesis Open

Through one fully completed tournament and one round of this week's Genesis Open, this is what Tiger Woods has been most proficient in: averting scorecard disaster.

Even the branding of his own Tiger Woods Foundation has changed, Woods announced Tuesday.

And the biggest difference was that hardly anyone saw it.

He bogeyed the 15th after yet another errant tee shot but he finally crushed a flawless drive at 17, which set up a birdie that got him back to one over. But I think it speaks to where his game is at right now.

"I'd eventually like to win tournaments", Woods said.

"I think there's something to that, something to being used to poa annua and growing up on golf courses that are kikuyu grass because I think it might be the only one we play all year with kikuyu grass", he said.

Arguably, the greatest golfer of all time, Woods was among the first to become an all-round athlete and the dedication he displayed each day was undoubtedly a key factor in his success.

Otherwise, he was smart, simple and confident.

Woods continues his comeback with his second tournament after his long injury lay-off while McIlroy is looking for a first win in 16 months.

He can't remember how many rounds he has played at Riviera. It first was played at Riviera in 1929.

"I won't lie, I love Rocco, " Mediate said. We played the 18th in the playoff and if I hit the ball in the fairway, it's an iron to the green for me.

"I was playing pretty good and sort of trying to keep alongside of him, especially at that point you're looking at everything he does so you know exactly what score he's on, what score you're on, " McIlroy said. He holed a 15-foot birdie putt, and a small clan of Bruins-clad fans broke into a cheer, "U-C-L-A, UCLA fight, fight, fight!" Cantlay could do no wrong from tee-to-green today. Another group features defending champion Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott and Bubba Watson. He played his third shot from ankle-high grass and it flew over the green. He was the No. 1 ranked player in the world.

Johnson wound up with a 74.

Twelve players did not finish the round before darkness.

Woods, meanwhile, will play the opening two rounds with Thomas and Rory McIlroy, who grew up idolizing Woods' golf.

Riviera never lacks for marquee players, and its famous 10th hole always brings a variety of opinions about how to attack the drivable 315-yard hole often dubbed as the hardest short par 4 in the world.

He was teeing off on the par-3 fourth when he looked down the hill at Woods playing the 18th.

"But then given it was so high up there was no way I could say it was mine or not".

"The course is playing tough, it really is, and hopefully I can shoot a good number tomorrow afternoon and work my way up the leaderboard".

Of those 91 bold souls who went for the green off the tee, 17 made birdie compared with five birdies from those who laid up; but then the subtle genius of the hole is that scoring isn't necessarily the ultimate arbiter.
