Tiger Woods makes flying start at Zozo Championship


Share this article


Tiger Woods has hit the lowest opening round of his career to take a share of the lead on day one of golf's  Zozo Championship in Japan.

He's tied with fellow American Gary Woodland on 6-under-par - one shot clear of the rest of the field.

Woods says things started going his way after a difficult start:

"I was just trying to turn it to even par at the turn, that's basically my goal, and I was able to squeeze one more out of it and lo and behold I had the easier side I'm going to and hopefully I can squeeze a couple more out of it and I did a couple more better than that, which was nice," Woods told the Golf Channel.

"It's always nice to get off to a quick start and then figure it out from there, but that start I got off to wasn't very good.

"I hit bad shot after bad shot after bad shot and then a three-wiggle (three-putt) at 12 and next thing you knew things aren't looking very good.

"After the start the ball-striking was better, the putting was really good. It was one of the stranger rounds I've experienced in a while. It seems like every putt I made, other than the one at seven, was left to right. It was crazy."

Open champion Shane Lowry is one-over after his first round, Rory McIlroy two-over and Graeme McDowell is 11-over-par.
