Tiger gets nothing from the Pebble Beach greens

Fox Sports

Tiger Woods didn’t miss a putt inside of eight feet and didn’t three-putt once when he re-wrote the record books at United States Open in 2000.

That was then, and now life on the Pebble Beach greens is as bumpy and unpredictable for Woods as, well, life.

“The greens are just awful,” he bemoaned after a disappointing 3-over par round of 74 left him five strokes off the first round lead.

I asked him whether they were really so much worse than they were a decade ago?

“Yes,” he said, “Much firmer.”

But it seemed just as true, too, that he didn’t putt on Thursday like that celestial 24-year-old.
