Tiger was fairly effective off the tee in Round 1 on Thursday, using that and a terrific short game to help him birdie three of four holes before hitting par on 11 straight to finish with the 1-under 70. Not a bad start, but he’ll be looking for more on Friday.

Hole 17: Par 3, 179 yards
Hole 16: Par 4, 407 yards
Shot 1: Tiger hits the fairway again. He’s feeling it off the tee today.
Shot 2: Tiger’s bounces off the green into the rough pin-high.
Shots 3, 4: Wow, very impressive up-and-down for Tiger to keep par. Onto Hole 17.
Hole 15: Par 4, 403 yards
Shot 1: And Tiger hits a nice stinger down the left-central side of the fairway.
Shot 2: Tiger breaks out the 9-iron and lands a GIR, some 20-plus feet away from the hole.
Shot 3: Tough break there. Tiger just misses the long birdie attempt by an inch to the left. He’ll settle for the walk-in par.
Shot 4: Par.
Hole 14: Par 5, 583 yards
Shot 1: Tiger’s on the fairway but still looks about 300 yards out. Not really in a position for a GIR attempt.
Shot 2: Approach lands him about 123 yards to the hole.
Shot 3: Uh-oh. Tiger hits the green but it rolls back down in the rough, probably 40 yards away. He’ll need an up-and-down for par.
Shot 4: Nice chip gets Tiger back on the green, roughly 5 feet from a very salvageable par.
Shot 5: And he saves par. Not ideal considering the par, but better than getting back to even for the round.
Hole 13: Par 4, 456 yards
Shot 1: Another drive to the left side of the fairway. Looking pretty good.
Shot 2: And another nice iron shot lands Tiger about 20 feet downhill from the pin.

Shot 4: Par.
Hole 12: Par 3, 206 yards
Shot 1: Tiger’s on the green somewhere in the 20-foot range for birdie on the par-3.
Shot 2: Ah, he came up just short on the lag putt. Tough, but a good look from him. Par upcoming.
Shot 3: Par.
Hole 11: Par 4, 400 yards
Shot 1: Tiger drives down the left side of the fairway. Been hitting that pretty well so far here at Pebble Beach.
Shot 2: More good iron for Tiger. Looks to be within 10 feet of another birdie.
Shot 3: And there it is. Birdie. Solid, solid start for Tiger.
Hole 10: Par 4, 479 yards
Shot 1: And we’re off. Tiger smokes it down the fairway to get the day started.
Shot 2: Tiger’s already within 10 feet of the hole, looks like, with just his second shot. Birdie upcoming?
Shot 3: Not much going there. Missed it on the amateur side. Par to start off.
Shot 4: Par
