Woods Is Three Shots Back

Tiger Woods is T7 and three shots back of co-leaders Robert Karlsson and Rory McIlroy, having carded a 70 (-2) in the first round of the Abu Dhabi Championship. As of this writing, though (5:22 am ET), other still could climb up the boards. Graeme McDowell is at -3 after eight. Lots of others still are on the course.

Tiger hit 17 of 18 greens, but needed 34 putts to finish them off. He says he made good putts, but was “fooled on a lot of my reads” thanks to “grainy” greens.

It’ll be interesting to see how this unfolds.

Update: Woods finished in a T9, still three shots back.
