Woods slumps to 55th after at Wells Fargo Championship

Wells Fargo Championship- Round Three

"It sucked to have to play against him".

The Masters runner-up said: "Phil and I have played a lot of rounds together, and Tiger and I have played a little bit at home, we've played a few practice rounds together out here".

However, fans aren't the only ones looking forward to Thursday's opening round: "We don't get to do it very often", Woods said, according to ESPN's Bob Harig. I responded by asking since he missed almost half the greens, wasn't he a little harsh on the flat stick not bailing him out from a mediocre tee-to-green performance?

Woods was one of several golfers who began the third round at 2 over par, but he took advantage of playing in the morning under overcast skies and an easier course setup than the previous two rounds. "The chances I did have, I missed them all", lamented Woods. "It was just a bad week and the good news is that you wipe your hands clean and move on to the next one". That's how it always is now with Woods, who appears to care more and more about answering questions earnestly, knowing the gravity his words carry across the sporting world.

Woods' last major victory came at the US Open in 2008 while his playing partner for the week tasted success at Muirfield in the 2013 Open. Play starts on Thursday.

"Things like that is what you need to win golf tournaments".

Woods has shown no signs of the struggles this year around the greens. In the 36 times the duo has been paired together on Tour, Woods won eight of their first 16 head-to-head duels and they tied twice.

"I didn't know what to expect this year", he said.

Day rated the victory one of the best of his career, not because of the quality of his play but more due to his ability to get the job done without his best game.

Contrast that with tournament victor Jason Day.

Tuesday, as Woods made his return to The Players for the first time since 2015, he was in a more reflective mood as he discussed everything, ranging from his past experience at TPC Sawgrass, to his grouping with Phil Mickelson, to being a role model for some of the best young players on Tour.

Day had an terrible day of wayward driving and squandered a three-shot lead on the back nine with consecutive bogeys, before rising to the occasion and hitting one of the best clutch shots of his life. Exhibit A was Day's tee shot on the 17th that clanged off the flagstick setting up a birdie on the toughest hole at Quail Hollow. He ranks number one on Tour from 10 feet and in.

"I had no idea where the ball was going off the tee".

"It was the most remarkable golf in the history of the game, and I think unrepeatable", Mickelson said.

Dan Reardon has covered golf for radio station KMOX in St. Louis for 33 years. That sort of thing never happened in the past, and the PGA Tour typically went out of its way to not group them in the first two rounds of an event.
