Tiger Woods positioned himself Thursday to make a run toward his fifth PGA Championship finishing the first round with a 2-under par and tied for 20th place.
Woods is only three strokes behind the leaders Jason Day and Brendon Todd who finished the first round 5-under par. It was the first time since the 2014 British Open that Woods started a round at a major in the 60s even as he missed five consecutive fairways during one stretch.
Woods had a couple of solid putts. He nailed 10-foot birdie on the opening hole, a 20-foot putt to save par just before he started on the back nine and also put together a 33-foot putt.
Woods is the defending Masters Tournament champion but is only playing his second event since the PGA Tour shut the season down because of the coronavirus pandemic. At Memorial, Woods finished with a 6-over par and tied for 40th.
