Pebble Beach: Tiger Woods birdies first hole, bogeys fourth

February 10, 2012 | 11:12 am


It's another beautiful day at Pebble Beach, and for Tiger Woods it's a new experience. The last time Woods played the AT&T Pebble Beach  National Pro-Am 10 years ago, the Monterey Peninsula course wasn't part of the three-course rotation.

This year it is, and Woods promptly birdied the 391-yard par-four first hole there Friday. It put him at five-under for the tournament at the time, but he bogeyed the par-four fourth when he drove into a fairway bunker and could not make a 10-footer to save par.

Charlie Wi, also playing Friday's second round at Pebble Beach, is the leader at 11 under. Danny Lee, playing Spyglass, is 10 under.

Among other notable happenings, 49-year-old Steve Elkington withdrew after five holes Friday with a rib injury. He was four over par during his round at Spyglass.
