Firestone Country Club

Firestone Country ClubFirestone Country Club, To the hole 16, the most striking of the first competitive round of Tiger Woods at 12 weeks was silence.

Its large gallery in the Akron Firestone Country Club on Thursday failed to explode even more in the long saves on third and ninth holes.

Devotees attending the first round of the Bridgestone Invitational, probably did not know his birdie at No. 10 was the first since the 15th hole on Sunday of the Masters Tournament on April 10, as he nailed another at No. 11.

It will be noted that there was a grimace of pain or lameness, which had become common with the left knee and Achilles problems that limited him to six previous tournaments in 2011. But there was no talk about it, with drenched in sweat pants and provisional Woods caddy Bryon Bell, who dominate their observations in the World Golf Championships tournament.

“I’d be a better caddy cart,” said a girl in the fifth tee of a friend of Woods since seventh grade. “It’s a nerd guy. It’s like ‘A-squared plus B equals the square-driver.”

But most of the faithful Woods just watched in silence and waited for the magic.

After a bogey at No. 14, a spark that finally came in at number 16 of the 667-yard par-5. The hole is known as “The Monster” summarized the state of play of Woods during a 2-under round of 68 left him six strokes of the leader Adam Scott.

When Woods drive to the right off the trees, took out a fairway wood and cut to a shot that sailed 269 meters and landed in the middle of the street under water, only 79 meters from the pin.

It seemed that the noise could have been heard in the heart of Canal Park.

“I tell you, he’ll be there Sunday,” said an elderly man at his friend.

“I smoked it,” Woods said. “I do not think I can get that far down there.”

The “excited” just died down when Woods hit a mediocre wedge in the back of the green.

“He has been hitting every other shot well,” lamented another follower.

But Woods is poured into a 30-foot putt for birdie to send the gallery into a frenzy again.

“I just got goosebumps,” said a man near the green. “I’ve never seen anything like that.”
