Peterson's 2 eagles carries him to lead at Quail Hollow

Woods shows no sign of rustiness as Wells Fargo Championship beckons

Both Koepka and Reed had longer putts from the same area, which allowed Woods to better judge the break and tempo, and he drilled the putt.

"It was an all right day; I hit it all right, " Woods said after an even-par 71 left him six shots out of the lead and tied for 34th.

"I think when it comes to Tiger ... everyone wants to see him win and play the way he did before", said Australia's former world number one Jason Day. "It's weird. The greens are slow".

"I've felt really good with the putter the last few weeks, from Bay Hill even through Augusta", He said. "What I was feeling and what I was sensing just didn't match up". You can't get in there and just kind of, you know, give it only 50 percent. So I just need to make the adjustments. "I'm seeing the lines and putting decent strokes on it and at least giving the ball a chance to get in the hole". "This is a very unusual combo to have-firm, but a bit on the slower side". He got another par on the drivable par-4 14th but there was no reason to celebrate as he missed his birdie chance from four feet. He birdied 7 and 8 to make the turn at one under before giving it back at 10 when his drive missed carrying the bunker by a yard.

On the day, Woods needed 31 putts, but hit 13 greens in regulation, including the par-5 10th where he failed to get up and down and made a 6.




Justin Thomas won the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow past year, and Woods said the changes leading up to that event have made the course significantly longer and several holes are "more stout".

"Seriously", Woods said. "Most of the golf courses I've played have been really hard setups. More bunkers are in play, they're more hard to carry, and some of the greens have more slope". The greens were bentgrass when Woods won but have since been changed to Bermudagrass. That was before John Peterson came to life late in the afternoon for a 65 to lead by 2.

Woods says he's now focussing on the events ahead, including next month's U.S. Open and July's 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie, and so much so, it's meant he's not had time to phone the likes of Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and golf's 20-something superstars as Woods had done so often throughout his rehabilitation from a fourth back surgery.

On the bright side, Woods is hitting the ball quite well with his new irons. "I've always been a pretty good putter all of my career, so that's something I've never really anxious too much about".
