It’s hard to do out here; it’s really hard to avoid bogeys. I made two today. Overall I’m only one back as of right now.

He had his ups and downs on the day, finishing with four birdies and two bogeys, but playing Amen Corner at 1 under is certainly an encouraging sign and he felt good about how he played despite the challenges Augusta National always presents.“With Augusta National and how they like to set it up, they like to do things slightly different every now and then,” Woods said. “I’m sure that all of us have probably putted to 18 over on the top left, but not top center. It’s a little bit different over there. They like to give a little different look to it. They did at three. Three was a different pin, usually it’s a little bit deeper than that on that same line. They did a pretty good job setting it up.”Woods will tee off Friday at 1:49 p.m. ET alongside playing partners Haotong Li (Even par) and Jon Rahm (3 under).last_img
