Thursday, in Tiger Woods’ first round at the 2018 PGA Championship, the 14-time major winner started with a bogey and a double-bogey to put himself three shots over par after two holes. Friday, he’s playing much, much better early on.
Woods eventually crawled back to even par on Thursday – giving himself a decent shot at making the cut Friday. He’s followed that up with three birdies in his first five holes – and he currently sits at minus-three on the scorecard.
Woods is still seven shots back of the leader Gary Woodland, but he’s got most of his round yet to play. Players are scoring well at Bellerive thus far.
At the moment, Woods is in a tie for 21st. If he can score a few more birdies before the round it out, he might be in the top 10 heading into the weekend.

The cut, at the moment, is even-par. But with players scoring well, it’s possible that it actually moves to one-under-par before the day is over.
Woods has won 14 majors in his career – trailing only Jack Nicklaus, who has 18, for the most all time. He’s been playing better golf the past few months.
