Hole 1, Par 4, 425 yards

Tony Finau has started his round with five straight birdies. So yeah, the front nine is where anyone hoping to go low Friday — see Kisner and Dustin Johnson — made and are making their hay. So Tiger spraying his approach 30 feet right of the hole, leading to a par, can be seen as a bit of a lost opportunity. Par. Even.

With thunder booming, play has been suspended.

Tiger has hit his drive just into the left rough.

At this point, we know the lead is not changing. It’s going to be Gary Woodland at 10-under, so you gotta believe Tiger would like to get to at least within, say, four. That means three more birdies. From here on out, the best opportunities come at 8, 11 and 17.
