Putter fails Tiger Woods. He's tied for 83rd after round one at Frys.com Open
Drive for show and putt for dough...Tiger was decent tee to green, but his flat stick did not deliver. At 2 over par, Woods is 6 shots off the lead shared by a quartet of pros. Tiger's amateur playing partner Patrick Cantlay, a student at UCLA finished two behind the pacesetters combating steady rain for much of the day. Leaders Brendan Steele, Briny Baird, Garrett Willis and Matt Bettencourt all had morning tee times, and will play in the afternoon Friday. The Woods threesome starts at 7:40. With the low 70 and ties advancing to the weekend...Tiger is on the outside looking in. Tied with Cantlay firing 69's is three time Major winner Ernie Els.
