Tiger Woods at Tour Championship 2013 Tracker: Day 1 Highlights and Updates

Carol SchramFeatured ColumnistSeptember 19, 2013

Top-ranked FedEx Cup player Tiger Woods opened the playoff field right up on Thursday at Day 1 of the Tour Championship.

Woods went birdie-free for the first time since the 2010 U.S. Open as he struggled to finish three over par at East Lake Golf Club, a course that is normally kind to him.

As he has in recent weeks, a lethargic-looking Woods struggled again on the greens in the front nine, then added some fairway adventures as well on the back half of the course.

By contrast, despite suffering from tendinits in his wrist, Woods' playing partner Henrik Stenson lit up East Lake on Thursday, finishing at the top of the leaderboard at six under par.

Tiger will start in the first group with Jason Dufner on Friday morning. Perhaps that change of pace will help to shake out the malaise and get the year's best golfer back on track for the potential $10 million payday.
