It is the return of the ‘golf emperor’. 카지노Tiger Woods (USA) successfully returned to the field after 7 months.
In the first round of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational (total prize money of $20 million) held at the Riviera Country Club (par 71) in Palisades, California, USA on the 17th (Korean time), Woods made 5 birdies with 3 bogeys. He shot a 2-under 69.
Although he was 5 strokes behind Max Horma and Keith Mitchell (USA), who took the lead with a 7-under-par 64, considering the long field gap, 48-year-old age, and the aftermath of a car accident, he was still in less than perfect condition. It’s an evaluation.
Woods did not play a regular tour event for seven months after missing the cut at the Open in July.
He had previously competed at the PNC Championship, an event event last December, but it was a two-day event and he rode the cards round the rounds.
Woods, who is said to have worked hard on strengthening his leg muscles, which were seriously injured in a car accident, and improving his shots, showed off a long hit with a distance of 323 yards that day.
The speed of the ball hit with a driver approached 180 miles per hour, rather than Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and Justin Thomas (USA) who played together.
His popularity also continued.
On this day, the spectators who gathered like a cloud to see Woods cheered enthusiastically, chanting “Tiger” when Woods appeared for a tee shot.
Woods, who recorded 2 under par with 5 birdies and 3 bogeys, tied for 27th place. McIlroy, who played together, was tied for 7th (4 under par), and Thomas was tied for 14th (3 under par).
Max Homa (USA), the winner of this tournament in 2021, and Keith Mitchell (USA), who showed a new short game, tied for the lead (7 under par), and Yon Ram (Spain) was third (6 under par).
Lim Seong-jae started with a tie for 27th place (2 under par) alongside Woods.
