Tiger Fixes Putting Problems to Remain in Contention

Tiger Woods needs less frustration on greens at TPC Boston to win. (Picture found on shottalk.com)

I had my first experience interviewing Tiger Woods in the media scrum today even though I may have stumbled, nervously through my question to one of the only people who have graciously been on my wall as a sports hero.

That’s what you learn fast in this business, that the days of being an awe-struck spectator and fan need to end quickly, and I’m glad I got that one out of the way. The first time for everything makes me characteristically nervous, but it’s all part of the learning curve.

Speaking of a curve, that’s probably the best way to describe Tiger Woods on a week-to-week basis as he tries to put together four great rounds to win a golf tournament. You might see him start off slow, peak in round two and maybe even three, and then come back down to earth on Sunday when dons his famous red shirt.

It truly all comes down to putting for Tiger. If he’s putting really well, like he did in round one on Friday at the Deutsche Bank, then he’s going to be at the top of the leaderboard. Woods struggled some with his putting, but then charged back with two longer biridie putts in the final five holes to place himself 2-back of Rory McIlroy.

Here is the story in today’s Boston Herald.
