Woods bo­geys way to 7over round in Ire­land

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTSBRIEFING -

Tiger Woods looked just as out of form in a celebrity pro-am as he did on the PGA Tour. The world’s No. 1 golfer ar­rived Mon­day in Ire­land just hours af­ter his 46th-place fin­ish in the AT&T Na­tional and shot a 7-over 79 in the first round of the J.P. McManus In­vi­ta­tional Pro-Am.

The event in County Lim­er­ick fea­tures Hollywood celebri­ties and Ir­ish bil­lion­aires. Woods bo­geyed six holes, dou­ble-bo­geyed the 7th, and man­aged a lone birdie on the 17th.

He put three balls in the wa­ter but seemed to take it all in stride.

Jim Furyk was among four tied for the lead at 1 un­der. Woods was tied for 48th place in the field of 54 pros.

Am­a­teur scores weren’t counted, but one in Woods’ four­some, sil­ver-haired Swiss banker Bernard Droux, played more con­sis­tently than Woods, who of­fered him com­pli­ments af­ter his pre­cise ap­proach shots and solid putts.
