Woods is only one stroke back of the lead.Hole 12: Par 3, 155 yardsAfter hitting his first shot to the fring, Woods opts to pitch it and gets the ball within a couple of feet of the cup. It’s an easy par. Harding has dropped a stroke and is tied with two other for first place at 3 under, putting Woods just two strokes off. Hole 11: Par 4, 505 yardsWoods opts to play the difficult 11th hole conservatively, avoiding the water but setting up a lag putt that turns into a par.Hole 10: Par 4, 495 yardsThe good news for Woods: He reaches the green on two shots. The not as good news: The approach shot landed a ways away form the hole but he works it in for par. Leader Justin Harding made another birdie to extend his lead over Woods to three strokes.Hole 9: Par 4, 460 yardsWoods converts a short putt and he’s definitely glad he did. He is back under par for the round.Hole 8: Par 5, 570 yardsAn encouraging green in regulation for Woods, but he misses another relatively short putt and settles for his fourth consecutive par.Hole 7: Par 4, 450 yardsWoods drops his club in disgust as his approach shot from the fairway goes into the bunker to the left of the hole. He is able to hit a strong shot out of the bunker and escapes the short-putt demons that have haunted him over the last two holes. It’s a par.Hole 6: Par 3, 180 yardsAnother devastating miss on a short putt. Woods will par again after failing to capitalize on an easy birdie putt. At least the reason for his early struggles is easily identifiable. Hole 5: Par 4, 495 yardsA hole of firsts for Woods, but not in a good way. He misses his first fairway and bogeys for the first time. The putt lipped off the side of the cup from about five feet. He is back to even-par. Hole 4: Par 3, 240 yardsThe birdie putt falls just short and Woods settles for another par.Hole 3: Par 4, 350 yardsWoods’ pitch went over the green on the short par four, but he rebounds nicely with a chip near the hole and a tap-in for par.Hole 2: Par 5, 575 yards For the first time since 2010, Tiger Woods is in the top 10 after the first round of the Masters.It’s the fifth instance in total that Woods has been in the top 10 after the first round of the tournament. He has won the green jacket on two of those occasions.  Despite landing his second shot into the bunker, Woods recovers and birdies the hole, moving him to just one shot off the lead in the early going. His tee shots still look strong. Hole 1: Par 4, 445 yardsAfter a very strong tee shot, Woods’ approach shot lands on the green about 30 feet from the hole, leading to a routine two-putt for par.Tiger Woods’ 2019 Masters begins with a club twirl.Watch his round live: https://t.co/rpU5KDKc6b pic.twitter.com/4yOTBHvLaD— CBS Sports (@CBSSports) April 11, 2019last_img
