Woods couldn't buy a putt for most of his round, especially on the first nine holes which he played 3-over par. Woods then took to the back nine where he started to pick up the pace with his putter and approach shots.

After struggling on par-5's all day, he finally got a birdie on the par-5 16th hole, taking some momentum to the infamous island green at No. 17.
