2012 Players Championship Scoring Update: Tiger Woods Finishes First Round With A Two-Over 74

Tiger Woods had a very up and down first round at the 2012 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. He finished the round with a two-over 74. Woods was up and down in the first three holes, bogeying two of the first three holes, while birdying hole No. 2.

After those three holes, Woods finished the front nine without giving up any strokes. But the first hole of the back nine was his third bogey of the day to push him to three-over. Woods then finished with two more bogeys and birdies on the back nine to finish at 74 for the first round, tying him at 117th.

Its an uphill climb for Woods as he is currently nine strokes behind current first round leader Ian Poulter.
