Tiger had a messy start to the PGA. Here’s how it happened

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. — So, that was a little strange.

Tiger Woods, in his first competitive round since winning the Masters, opened his PGA Championship with a roller-coaster ride of a first round. There were birdies and bogeys, doubles and eagles.

His day started early, at 8:24 a.m. local time off the remote 10th tee at Bethpage Black. Alongside defending champion Brooks Koepka and Open champion Francesco Molinari, Woods showed some rust and life, oscillating all day between bad Tiger and good Tiger.

Here’s how the day played out, how Tiger shot 72 and how he stands nine behind Koepka, who put on a show here Thursday:
