The first round of the 2011 PGA Championship started off pretty good for Tiger Woods, but the noted golf enthusiast ended his first nine with a double-bogey to take a two-over score into the front nine at the Atlanta Athletic Club.
Woods began Thursday's opening round on the back nine by birdying three of his first five holes, but it was pretty much all downhill quickly from there. Woods hit into the water on Hole 15 before ending it with a double-bogey, followed that up by hitting into the sand before salvaging a bogey on Hole 16 and then finally got back on track by tapping in a putt for par on the 17th hole.
On Hole 18, however, it again got ugly for Woods. Woods began the 491-yard, par-four hole by hitting the ball way to the right off of the tee, going way left into the bunker a couple of strokes later and then putting in for a double-bogey on his sixth stroke of the hole.
Tiger fans will surely be hoping for a better front nine, but if Woods is unable to rebound from his morning session, things could get ugly in a hurry.
