Tiger Woods trails by six after putting woes at Quail Hollow

Tiger Woods made some big changes after Masters letdown

Tiger Woods is preparing to make his comeback at the Wells Fargo Championship this week after taking a break following his participation at the Augusta Masters in early April.

"I threw my clubs in the closet for about 10 days and just got away from the game not touching a club or making a swing", Woods said.

Tiger Woods is set to tee it up this afternoon at the Wells Fargo Championship, following his T32 finish at The Masters, with a brand new set of TaylorMade irons in the bag. I've never won The Players Championship (next week); it's a tournament that I would love to win.

"I hit it all right", said Woods, who is tied for 37th.

The 42-year-old struggled mightily on the greens, losing over 1.2 strokes putting to rank near the bottom of the field. The greens aren't quite as fast as when I remember playing here, but they are more hard. It feels just easy out there today, but the last three holes are just so tough. The opposite occurred Thursday in Charlotte and Woods couldn't capitalize on his overall command of the golf ball with new irons and a driver that's been far straighter than it was two months ago. "If I make a couple putts, I'd be 2 or 3 under par, which is fine". "I was a little apprehensive going out there today, I didn't know what to expect. This is a very odd combo to have-firm, but a bit on the slower side".

DD were 59-2 at the end of the powerplay, added 69-2 in the middle overs, and added a further 70 runs in the final overs. The captain smashed seven deliveries to the boundary, including five sixes .

He had to hole a 17-footer for par on the par-3 17th hole after leaving his first putt well short and missed a 10-foot birdie putt on the 18th green after a strong approach from a fairway bunker. "I've always been a pretty good putter all of my career, so that's something I've never really anxious too much about".

Tiger Woods struggled to adjust to slow greens as he slipped six strokes behind American leader John Peterson in the opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina on Thursday.

"This golf course is a lot harder, a lot harder than when I played", Woods said. "I feel like I've played my way into the rhythm of it". "It's longer, but it's also more hard. As we work toward finalizing Tiger's new irons, there will be a lot more info to come, including a release date for golfers everywhere".

Tiger would stare right through galleries of fans aching for any sort of interaction with him like they were a forest of troublesome pine trees - just more obstacles in the way of the mission. "There's going to be probably, I'm guessing, 15 guys or so with a chance on Sunday".

"No, they're still friends of mine and we still text each other but I am now working on my game and there is less time for them to either come out to dinner or ask me questions of hop on the phone", said Woods. "We're gonna go to the putting green and regroup and hopefully get better with the putter".
