Tiger Woods was not having the start he expected on Thursday at the U.S. Open. A bogey on the relatively easy first hole followed by two more bogeys had him sitting a 2-over and moving the wrong way fast.
But Tiger knows the constant equalizer in golf is the putter. A good 60 feet away from the hole on the par-4 6th hole, it looked as though Woods had a better chance of adding another bogey with a three-putt than he did a birdie, but he slung the putt well to the right of the hole and watched as the hill started to bring the ball back towards the cup.
It kept breaking and breaking and a couple of feet out it looked like the ball had a tracking device inside for the cup.
The putt dropped, Tiger gave a fist pump, and it was game on at Merion.
