This weekend, the revival of Tiger Woodsgolf game—which he says is a work in progress—continues at the AT&T National.

Then again, it might not continue. On Thursday, Woods struggled home with a 3-over-par 73 at Aronimink Golf Club, leaving him seven strokes back of first-round leaders Arjun Atwal, Joe Ogilvie, Jason Day, and Nick Watney.

With 18 holes to play before weekend qualifiers are set, Woods is certainly on the cut line. His game was sound off the tee but frustrating for him on the greens. On Thursday, he took 30 putts, just under the field average, but one fewer than each of the four players who share the lead.

Woods, who has yet to win this season, said, “If I keep hitting it like this, I’ll be fine. The putts will start going in.”

After a self-imposed exile following a well-publicized sex scandal, Woods’ skills haven’t been as sharp since he returned to the PGA Tour at the Masters in April. He has posted six over-par scores in 18 rounds.
