Tiger Woods grabs share of lead at Deutsche Bank Championship

August 31, 2012|By Dan Loumena

Tiger Woods shot a seven-under-par 64 at the TPC Boston golf course to claim a share of the early first-round lead in the Deutsche Bank Championship on Friday.

Also shooting a 64 was American Jeff Overton. Two shots back of the leaders are Australian John Senden and South African Louis Oosthuizen, along with Korea's Seung-Yul Noh, who is among half the field still on the course.

A group of five golfers, including American Dustin Johnson as well as England's Ian Poulter and Luke Donald, are three off the lead after recording a 67.

Woods, who started his round on the back nine, birdied two of four holes to open the round. He birdied No. 18 as well as Nos. 1-5 after making the turn. His only bogey came on No. 9 to close his round.

Woods, who needed only 28 putts after hitting 16 of the 18 greens in regulation on Friday, struggled last weekend in the Barclays at Bethpage Black, where he shot a five-over 76 on Sunday for his worst round of the year.

Overton, who had five consecutive birdies on the back nine, added another at No. 18 to grab a share of the lead.
