"Tiger Woods starts the PGA Championship


USA: 17 May 2024: Tiger Woods  knows he is competitively rusty. At the 106th PGA Championship, Woods had a mixed morning in Louisville, Kentucky, opening the tournament at 1-over 72. He persevered through several misplaced tee shots to finish most of his opening round at Valhalla Golf Club around par.

He then went on the attack halfway through his second nine, shooting into red digits. However, Woods closed with consecutive three-putt bogeys that will make his mouth taste bad all night. He is ten strokes behind Xander Schauffele, who started the tournament with a record-low 9-under 62, the lowest score ever recorded in a single round in the PGA Championship.

The day was similar to his opening round at the Masters (1-over 73) the previous month, with a rhythm that was up and down but a final score that should be close to the predicted cut line. Woods broke the tournament record by making the cut for the 24th time in a row at the Masters with a second-round 72.
