  • Tiger Woods mulling approach from proposed Premier Golf League

Tournament host Tiger Woods had little time to fine tune his game ahead of the Genesis Open but that did not stop him from making a hot start with an eagle at the first hole in the opening round in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Woods, seeking a record 83rd PGA Tour victory, was delighted with the quality of his play on the front nine but was a little untidy coming home, dropping a couple of shots for a two-under-par 69 that saw him trail leader Matt Kuchar by five.

"No matter what we do, I think for a while we're going to always remember Kobe and what he meant, and especially here in SoCal and the entire sports world", Woods said after learning of the 24-8 measurement.

Shot Tracker data putt the putt at 24 feet 8 inches - the numbers nearly eerily invoking the memory of Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash on January 26.

"Ironic having those two numbers", Woods said. From there he made seven pars and birdie - on the fifth, where he holed from 15 feet - to sign for a three-under total, four behind the early pacesetter, Matt Kuchar.

The American held a three-stroke lead over a group of five players, made up of Lee Kyoung-Hoon, Russell Henley, Wyndham Clark, Adam Schenk and Harold Varner. He dropped another shot on the 18th when after hitting so many drives to the left, he leaked one badly to the right and had to pitch out to the fairway, slamming his iron into the cart path in disgust as he walked through the crowd. Woods has long struggled with his putting here at Riviera-the site of his first-ever PGA Tour event, as a stick-thin 16-year-old way back in 1992-and joked on Tuesday that after all these years, he can't seem to believe that every putt breaks toward the sixth tee, the low-point of the course. Perhaps he's learned his lesson.

"There's a couple times today I hit good shots but was on the wrong side", McIlroy said.

"Made a couple loose swings and made a couple good saves on the back nine for par, but just wasn't able to get any birdies on the back nine".

In hindsight, the front-nine ball striking display was particularly impressive given Woods' lack of preparation for the week.

He said he was trying to "piece together" his swing on the driving range despite a hectic schedule.

As Woods indicated, the back nine was a completely different story.

But the back nine was a battle all the way, starting with a tee shot into the left rough at the 10th. There was another scrambling par after a right miss at the par-5 17th, but he couldn't overcome a push into the trees down the right of 18, leading to a closing bogey.

The good news for Woods is he won't have to wait long to flush away that uneven back nine.

"I haven't had a whole lot of time to practice this week". "I've been getting up pretty early, so it will be a quick turnaround, get back at it". Hopefully we'll have a little bit smoother greens out there on the golf course. "I played my second nine a lot better than I played my first nine so I feel good".
