Tiger makes late birdie to sit on Quail Hollow cutline

Tiger Woods trails by six after putting woes at Quail Hollow Woods shows no sign of rustiness as Wells Fargo Championship beckons

Woods said he had trouble judging the speed of greens whose firmness belied their slow speed.

"We had a testing process basically since December of past year and we finally got to the point where, yeah, I can put them in the bag and play", he said. "Still need to continue to work on it and try to get sharp and hopefully this will be a good week". Playing his first tournament since switching from Nike irons to TaylorMades, Woods displayed few issues with the transition, hitting 13 of 18 greens in regulation and carving several shots in to hard hole locations. "What I was feeling and sensing just didn't match up".

Woods came up with a couple of big putts though, rolling in a 27-footer for birdie on No 8 and a bender from 17 feet on the over-the-water par-3 17th hole to save par.

"Ball-striking-wise, I'm fine", said Woods, who received a warm welcome from the fans on the first tee box in his return to Charlotte.

Back playing at the U.S. Masters for the first time in three years, Monday had a bit of a homecoming feel to it as a relaxed Woods hit the driving range and the putting green to the delight of a massive gallery. The greens were bentgrass when Woods won but have since been changed to Bermudagrass. "I missed so many putts", Woods told reporters after a round that included 33 putts. Woods left his tee shot short of the green and three-putted for bogey, his first of the day, and had another three-putt on 16 from just 15 feet.

Tiger Woods is in danger of missing the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship, but a birdie at the last could prove priceless for his chances of making the weekend.

Woods bogeyed two and birdied one on the back nine to finish at even par on the day.

One of them is closer to walking away than the other. "I would have taken that score before I went out there", McIlroy, who said he struggled during Wednesday's pro-am, told the Golf Channel.

And he was still out of golf recovering from back surgery last summer when Quail Hollow hosted the PGA Championship. "I made some good swings and hit some good putts". He shot a 6 under 65 to grab the lead. "A few more putts and it's yours, Tiger!" - but the message was the same.

"I certainly was frustrated, there's no doubt about that", Woods said.

"But you got to put it behind and move on to the next one and hit the next shot with just as much commitment and I did that all day and unfortunately I didn't make anything until the last hole".
