Tiger Reveals New TW-Phase1 Irons

'Time to get back to work,' Tiger Woods to resume comeback

"Literally, if I just putt normal I'm 5 or 6 under par", Woods said. He got another par on the drivable par-4 14th but there was no reason to celebrate as he missed his birdie chance from four feet. They feel springy, and they feel fast-especially as I'm walking on them, but they're not putting that way. Even so, Woods hasn't given himself enough good chances to make up ground over dozens of players ahead of him. "I would love to see him play well, just hopefully I can play a little bit better".

He also three-putted for bogey from 18 feet on the 16th hole before saving par on the following par-3 with an 18-footer.

"Ball-striking-wise, I'm fine", said Woods, who received a warm welcome from the fans on the first tee box in his return to Charlotte.

Woods lost 1.27 strokes on the greens Thursday, ranking 120th in the 156-man field in strokes gained: putting.

"My feels aren't used to greens at this pace", Woods said. "I missed so many putts", Woods told reporters after a round that included 33 putts.

While it was a highly erratic driver that kept him from being a true factor down the stretch the previous three events, it was inconsistent iron play that left Woods scrambling to make the cut and too often putting from the wrong side of the hole at the Masters.

Minister for Health Simon Harris has now established a review of the process, to establish how the scandal was allowed to unfold. It comes after Health Minister Simon Harris said he now can't have confidence in the managers of the screening programme.

In 2007, Woods won the Wachovia Championship, the forerunner to the Wells Fargo, but a lot changed since he last played Quail Hollow. "I struggled making the adjustments today". "If I make a couple putts, I'd be 2 or 3 under par, which is fine".

He walked off the seventh green holding his putter, one hand on the grip, the other on the head, as if he wanted to break it in half.

Woods is playing in his first Wells Fargo Championship since 2012 and coming off a rather sub-par performance at The Masters a few weeks ago. "I would have taken that score before I went out there", McIlroy, who said he struggled during Wednesday's pro-am, told the Golf Channel. "I made some good swings, hit some good putts, and 68 is a good way to start".

"It's such a learning curve out here on Tour with the golf courses and the competition and I'm just getting comfortable".

Double Wells Fargo victor Rory McIlroy started with a smooth three-under-par 68, Peterson made consecutive eagles for a sizzling 65 at Quail Hollow in Charlotte. "And I had defensive putts on most of the days".

"Building towards next week", Woods said of The Players Championship, the Tour's flagship event.
