CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Tiger Woods got off to a fast start at the Quail Hollow Champhionship.
Woods began his second PGA Tour event this season with a birdie on the par-5 10th hole this morning. He gave that stroke back, however, with a bogey two holes later at Quail Hollow Club.
This is Woods’ first tournament since the Masters, his 2010 debut that followed a five-month hiatus and ensuing sex scandal.
Masters champion Phil Mickelson is expected to tee off at 12:50 p.m.
Woods got a rousing welcome from a chilly, early morning crowd when he was announced on the 10th tee. Then Woods’ gave them more to cheer about with a near perfect drive down the center.
He was left of the green with his approach, then flipped a wedge within 2 feet for a tap-in birdie.
