Tiger Woods and Uihlein both started their round at 2 over, and both found better fortune with the scoring conditions. As for the putting, Woods said he made an adjustment that made him "more handsy, " allowing for a firmer stroke.

Woods missed five putts from inside 3m and flirted with missing the cut before scraping through with a two-over-par 73. "The '97 Masters and the 2000 U.S. Open, I didn't miss one like that under 10 feet for the week", Woods said.

The round started on not the best of notes, as he made a bogey on the 2nd after his approach shot finished well left of the green.
