Woods struggles, 3 share lead at PGA Championship
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Tiger Woods is off to a disappointing start at the PGA Championship.
Spraying shots all over Valhalla, Woods made four bogeys, managed only one birdie and finished with a 3-over 74 that left him nine shots off the lead after the opening round Thursday.
Lee Westwood, Kevin Chappell and Ryan Palmer all share the lead at -6 (65), with British Open champion Rory McIlroy just one shot off the lead.
Woods yanked one shot into the gallery, put another into a creek. He looked very much like someone playing just his 11th competitive round since back surgery March 31.
Lee Westwood and Kevin Chappell shot 6-under 65s to share the early lead. Edoardo Molinari was two shots back. No one else was closer than three shots off the lead.
Woods arrived at Valhalla only on Wednesday after treatment for a back injury that forced him to withdraw from Firestone last week.
