This golf course, if youre driving it great here, you can take advantage of this golf course, you can tear it apart. But if youre not, you get up in some bushes and some rods, you can go sideways. But all in all, I feel pretty good. Im looking forward to another three more days.” He added, “I think how quickly I fell into the competitive mode and I felt the feel of the round. By the time I hit the second, my tee shot on the second hole, I had already gotten into the flow of the round. Thats something that for me when Ive taken layoffs and taken breaks, its quickly can I find the feel of the round. Its good to be able to play in, what, 15, 16 months and get it on the second hole is nice.” Promising to “clean up” his mistakes, Woods was pleased to get that adrenaline rush he so missed in recent times. “Oh, I did. Theres no doubt I felt it. It was nice. It felt good to have that adrenaline surging through the system again. Its been a long time. To get up there on that first hole and feel it again and then dumb it down to be able to control it and get into my feel where I play my best, that was nice. I got it pretty quick. “By the time I got to, as I said, the second or third hole I was already in it,” said Woods. Holmes led the event after an eight-under-par 64 that featured seven birdies and an eagle. Japans Hideki Matsuyama was a shot further back on seven under, with US Open winner Dustin Johnson on six under. PTI AH PDS PDSadvertisementlast_img read more
