Tiger Woods entered Thursday with hopes of capturing his 15th major this weekend at the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive. But after just two holes, he's dug himself a considerable hole that's going to take some stellar play to get himself out of.

Woods, who is playing with Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy, started off his first round with a bogey, followed by a double-bogey. Woods, through two holes, is three-over par, five back of the leaders. It isn't the start he was hoping for, to say the least.

Woods teed off on the 10th hole and promptly bogeyed to start off his round. On the 11th hole, Woods hit it into the water. He wound up making six, and now sits at three-over par for the round.

Woods put his tee shot on the 12th hole into the fairway - so he's got that going for him.

Woods, one of the most accomplished golfers of all-time, is sitting on 14 majors - four back of the great Jack Nicklaus. Woods hasn't won a major since 2008, but his game has improved a great deal this year. He was in major contention at the British Open a few weeks back before fading down the stretch.

Woods isn't out of it just yet, but he's going to need to play well the rest of his round to keep himself alive. We'll keep you updated.
