Tiger Woods finds himself six strokes back through one round of the PGA's Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte.

His most recent outing was at Augusta in April where he finished T-32 with a final score of one over par.

PGA Tour Live is handling live streaming here and is the only place to watch full Round 1 coverage on Thursday.

Especially when his putter was not cooperating.

Following an opening level-par 71 at the Wells Fargo Championship, Woods answered: "Probably Augusta, seriously".

John Peterson tops the leaderboard following a 6-under 65 that included eagles on back-to-back holes.

So Woods has switched out his old Nike irons for a new set of TaylorMade irons, which he put in play this week.

Griffin played the first seven holes Thursday at 3-over before disaster struck on the par-4 Nos.

Charlie Rose Accused Of Sexual Harassment By 27 More Women
According to the Post , Rhodes issued a memo in March that said he was not aware of harassment by Charlie Rose at CBS . CBS News management was notified of a complaint about Rose as far back as 1986 according to the Post's investigation.

"Ball-striking-wise, I'm fine", Woods said.

"No, they're still friends of mine and we still text each other but I am now working on my game and there is less time for them to either come out to dinner or ask me questions of hop on the phone", said Woods. "I haven't felt comfortable hitting the putts as hard as we have to hit them this week". That's a tough combination. I've had ample time to make the adjustment, and I just haven't. Lahiri is trying to ensure that he does not have to struggle at the end of the season to get to the FedEX Cup, where he made the third leg past year. He followed that up with three pars and two birdies to finish the front nine one-under. Woods should still manage better than the sloppy bogey he made on this hole yesterday.

Hashmi is a senior on the Alamo Heights High School golf team who has a +0.9 handicap on the course.

He holed a bunker shot from just under 60 feet away on the par-5 seventh hole.

While it was a highly erratic driver that kept him from being a true factor down the stretch the previous three events, it was inconsistent iron play that left Woods scrambling to make the cut and too often putting from the wrong side of the hole at the Masters. He would miss the birdie putt and have to drain a 4-foot comebacker to salvage par, which he did. He drained a 27-footer for birdie on No. 8 to get into red figures but also missed five putts from inside of 10 feet, including a pair of 4-footers. "If I make a couple of putts, I'm two or three under par which is fine". "I made some good swings, hit some good putts, and 68 is a good way to start".

But there were more smiles than frowns after the round, no rage to speak of. It's a great life out here. And he started looking quickly.

"And I got them all back", he said.
