Golf Update: Tiger Woods disappoints again at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational
Did someone say, this time it will be Tiger Wood on the top of the leader board? Does four-over-par 74 looks like the score of the winner? Yes, it does not and this is the score of the 14-time major winner on the first day of WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.
WGC-Bridgestone Invitational is the event which is taking place at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio where 80 top players from around the world have gathered to display their fascinating game. These 80 players include Tiger Woods as well.
Despite his terrible past performance, fans and golf lovers were expecting the seven time winner of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to smash a fascinating start. To the remorse, he could only make it to the 70th position on the leader board.
Moreover, he started with the two easiest holes at Firestone Country Club. It seemed to the spectators that Tiger had planned to hit few birdies in his tee shots; however, this perception turned out to be wrong. Instead, he took his tee shots aiming into the trees and made bogeys.
These bogeys set him 10 shots behind Bubba Watson, who is currently on the top of the leader board with 6 under.
Adding more to it, on his way to the scoring trailer, a spectator yelled out on Tiger Woods that his career was over and his game was gone. To this ingestion, Tiger Woods’ did not even stop to justify himself, instead, he said very lamely, that admiring the course certainly does not mean that his performance will be admired as well.
According to the analysts, there was not much change in Tiger Wood’s game as expected. Instead of getting a makeover with a goatee, this No 1 should have inserted more effort in bringing a makeover in his putting. Tiger Woods managed to hit only 5 fairways and took 32 putts.
Likely, Tiger Woods managed to score just two birdies but six bogeys in the first round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, 2010.he was 5 over after the 16th hole and to cut down the embarrassing score, he shot a birdie at the 17th.
At the end of the day, everything went as expected and according to the experts, there wasn’t a slight change in Tiger Wood’s game. Although he kept patient throughout the day, which showed a balance of control but this was not enough for a good score. It seemed as if he got de-motivated right from the beginning when he was 2 over right after his first tee shots.
According to Tiger himself, he got frustrated because of his struggling on the greens and his bad iron shots.
Moving forward, Phil Mickelson who was one of the 80 best players, recovered his game which he initiated with two bogeys and finished with a 4 under 66.That gave him a share in the second group on the leader board. Phil Mickelson shared this group with three other players; Kenny Perry, Adam scot and Graeme McDowell. Not to forget Graeme McDowell and Phil Mickelson are the next contenders for the No 1 title, which currently belongs to Tiger Woods.
Talking about the leader, Bubba Watson, this was his first cut into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and he did a splendid job by smashing four straight birdies on the back nine and delivering a long putt on the 18th hole for a six-under 64. Bubba Watson had a two shot lead over the master champion Phil Mickelson and the US open champion Graeme McDowell.
Bubba Watson is playing only for the second time in World Golf Championships. He qualified the criteria in June by winning the Travellers Championship for his first PGA Tour victory.
The first round of WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio has ended and the winner is Bubba Watson with 6 under. However, the speculations were revolving around the defending champion Tiger Woods, who still could not perform the way a defending champion should.
