Tiger Woods First Round at Buick Open: Skier or Golfer?

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on July 30, 2009 5:03 pm

Jackson Hole regular Tiger Woods looked like the sub-par skier that he is, rather than the world’s best golfer on Thursday.  Tiger is playing in the Buick Open in San Diego.  He shot a 1-under 71, which puts him eight shots back of first-round leader Steve Lowery.  Was that a ski pole Tiger was using or his putter?  He finished 128th on putts inside 10 feet.

If Woods shoots another 70-something tomorrow, he’ll be in danger of missing the cut for the second-consecutive tournament.  Woods mished the cut at the British Open two weeks ago.  “It’s just one of those days. One of those weird days,” Woods said of his performance.
