Another tourney, another Tiger lead
By TIMES WIRES
Published September 2, 2006
NORTON, Mass. - Tiger Woods bent over and grabbed his knees, thinking his 3-wood shot that clipped the top branch of an oak tree had trickled down from the green and into a hazard.
Once he realized it was in a bunker, it changed his outlook and put him in a spot that is becoming routine.
Woods got up-and-down from 90 feet for a birdie on the par-5 18th hole Friday, giving him 5-under 66 and a one-shot lead in the first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Aaron Baddeley, playing in the same group as Woods, stayed with him most of the day until having to lay up on the 18th. He made par for 67, joining Bob May, Justin Rose, Joe Ogilvie and Australian rookie Nathan Green.
Woods managed a few birdies along the way - a wedge to 10 feet on the first, a 7-iron to 12 feet on the sixth and chipping in from about 30 feet on the par-5 seventh - along with one big par. After chopping up the fifth hole, Woods made a 12-foot putt for an unlikely save.
"One thing Tiger is good at is he holes the putts to keep the momentum," Baddeley said.
Woods is trying to win for the fifth straight time on the PGA Tour, a streak that began with his victory in the British Open.
LPGA: Cristie Kerr shot 8-under 64 and was tied with Maria Hjorth at 12-under 132, one stroke ahead of Il Mi Chung, who had 66, after the second round of the State Farm Classic in Springfield, Ill. Lorena Ochoa (70) was five shots off the lead, with Annika Sorenstam (68) at 6 under.
Se Ri Pak, bothered lately by a neck injury, was 7 over for the tournament when she withdrew after nine holes. Defending champion Pat Hurst was 2-over 146 and missed the cut.
Brittany Lincicome of Seminole shot 4-under 68 to move into a tie for 27th at 140. Clearwater's Jennifer Gleason is tied for 53rd after 72-142. Beth Bauer of Tampa and Kelly Lagedrost of Brooksville missed the cut.
CHAMPIONS TOUR: D.A. Weibring shot 8-under 64 and held a two-stroke lead over Tom Purtzer and Jay Haas after the opening round of the Wal-Mart First Tee Open in Pebble Beach, Calif. Weibring completed his bogey-free round with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th. He completed the front nine with an eagle 3 after he hit his 3-wood second shot within 3 feet.
"I've been playing well lately," Weibring said. "It was a bonus to birdie the two par 3s on the front nine, and I played a little more conservatively off the tee than usual."
EUROPEAN PGA: Martin Erlandsson shot 4-under 68 for a one-stroke lead after two rounds of the BMW International in Munich, Germany.
David Howell, the first-round leader, had 69, joining Alejandro Canizares (65), Mattias Eliasson (66) and Soren Hansen (66) a stroke back at 136. Paul McGinley shot 72 and missed the cut but seems likely to make the Ryder Cup team, which will be finalized Sunday night.
MID-AMATEUR: Kyle Beebe of Marianna shot 71 at Killearn Country Club in Tallahassee to take first and advance to the Mid-Amateur Championship in Lecanto. Ken Stevenson, Tim Murray and Robert Bechtol, all of Tallahassee, also advanced.
