Tiger Woods tracker: Score and updates for golf icon from Round 1 at PGA Championship

The anticipation was high as the four-time PGA Championship winner, Tiger Woods, prepared to grace the 2024 PGA Championship. His teed off time at 8:04 am on Thursday, May 16, alongside Adam Scott and Keegan Bradley with a start that can best be described as sluggish.

The golfing icon finished Thursday with a one-over-par 72, which as of this writing is good for a tie at for 73rd in a packed field. Xander Schauffele carded a record-tying 62 to dominate the leaderboard early.

Woods, a paragon of resilience, has openly discussed the physical challenges that have occasionally hindered his golf game but has said he has made the physical accommodations to continue to play. Yet, Woods steadfastly asserts that he remains a formidable competitor, capable of holding his own against the league of best golfers.

“Yeah, I can still hit shots,” Woods shared candidly at a press conference at Valhalla Golf Club prior to the tournament. “It’s getting around is more of the difficulty that I face, day-to-day and the recovery of pushing myself either in practice or in competition days. You saw it at Augusta. I was there after two days and didn’t do very well on the weekend.”

Woods won his first PGA Championship in 1999 at the age of 23 and then again in 2000, 2006, and 2007. Here are the live updates from Round 1 at Valhalla Golf Club.
