U.S. Open 2020 highlights: Tiger Woods, Round 1 at Winged Foot

Tiger Woods made a lot of long birdie putts Thursday at the 120th U.S. Open. However, he made his fair share of mistakes, too.

Despite carding five birdies, Woods shot 3-over 73, which was capped with a bogey-double finish.

After bogeys at Nos. 4 and 5, Woods birdied three of his next six holes, including three straight from Nos. 9-11, to climb into early contention at Winged Foot.

Woods’ birdie barrage began at the par-4 sixth, where he laid back off the tee before wedging it to 7 feet and making the putt.

A poor drive at the par-5 ninth forced another layup, but Woods holed a 30-footer for birdie.
