It had the look of one of those days when Tiger Woods three-putted on the first green. He hit two perfect shots on the opening hole, but his putter betrayed him. When he hit his drive on the second hole across the third fairway, there was little doubt that Tiger would struggle.

However, he would have none of it. He recovered from that poor drive on the second hole and he made birdie. That got his confidence going, and he played productively the rest of the way. He fired a two-under par 68, and he is four shots behind leader Marc Leishman going into the second round of play at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational at the Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.

Tiger had quite a few struggles with his driver, which has been typical of his recent play. However, his short iron play was spot on, and it allowed him to make several birdies.

Tiger goes into the second round with some momentum, something he could not claim in his previous outings at Congressional and The Open Championship. He will tee off at 10:30 a.m. ET.
