I’m getting back into the everyday grind of baseball, which I love, he said. That’s how you figure it out… getting back into it. I’m a big believer in little things change and all of sudden you have two homers instead of two flyball outs, you’ve got a walk instead of a strikeout. It can change quickly.
But the putting issue is also nothing new; Woods couldn’t buy a putt in his last start, which came two weeks ago at the Memorial.
On Saturday alone at that tournament, he missed five putts from inside eight feet, including a pair of four-footers.
At least on Thursday, Woods only missed two such putts, both of which came from inside six feet, six inches. But he also didn’t make a single putt of significant length, with only one make coming outside of five feet – a 10-foot-8 bogey putt on No. 2.

People think that you can find safeties anywhere, one former defensive coordinator told NFL Network’s Bucky Brooks. Listen to how people always talk about aging cornerbacks moving inside to safety when they lose their athleticism. Sure, some guys can do it, but there’s a lot more that goes into the position than some realize. You have to be smart and a communicator to play in the back end. You also need to be a solid tackler in the open field.
You can’t just throw anybody in there and expect them to have success.
