  • Tiger opts for new irons to conquer Wells Fargo

Tiger Woods shot an even-par 71 during the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship on Thursday and is tied for 34th place, six shots off the lead of fellow American John Peterson in Charlotte, N.C.

He won the Wells Fargo in 2007 and has three other top-11 finishes, but Quail Hollow also is the only course where he's missed the cut twice in his professional career (he also missed in 2010).

Woods took three weeks off before entering the Wells Fargo, and he admitted he's not yet sure what level he can take his game to following fusion surgery on his back a year ago.

Most players and caddies are in a hurry to get off property late in the afternoon when they have an early tee time the next day.

"I didn't hit my irons very good. I just struggled with my speed on the greens all day", said Woods, who joked that he might break out a long putter for Friday's second round. The greens aren't quite as fast as I remember but they are more hard. "I'm just kind of playing golf". 4 and 16 and was exasperated after missing out on a chance to birdie the hard closing 18th hole, rolling a putt just past the cup.

"I drove it great on the weekend (at the Masters), but I kept hitting the ball above the hole or in the wrong spot", Woods said. "I'm right there. If I make a couple putts, I'd be 2 or 3-under par, which is fine". I'm busy trying to prepare and practice myself and get ready. That's essentially giving 1.5 shots to the field.3:25 p.m.: Bit of trouble at the 10th, as Tiger's drive fails to carry a bunker on the left side.

Although the rate of job creation eased to its lowest since last August, it remained well above the long-run survey average. Although solid, input cost inflation moderated for the second month in a row to the weakest since last September.

Woods started slow but made his first birdie of the day on the par-5 7th hole, and quickly followed that with a 28-foot putt that fell for a second-straight circle on the scorecard. "I made some good swings and hit some good putts". "That's something I've never really anxious about too much".

"I felt like I've played my way into playing shape now - whether it's the simple act of walking and play, recovery from day to day and playing week to week", Woods said.

I played a little more golf than I was expecting to play.

A stout opening six holes featuring a mix of length, thin fairways and puzzling greens can get a player going sideways in hurry. "It's longer and it's more hard".

Woods couldn't navigate the greens here, which were replaced leading up to last year's PGA Championship and have significant bounce to them on approach shots. "There's probably going to be, I'm guessing, 15 guys with a chance on Sunday". That being said, Woods's flatstick kept him from running up the leaderboard on the back nine. "We're gonna go to the putting green and regroup and hopefully get better with the putter".
