Tiger Woods upbeat after opening round at Masters
AUGUSTA, United States, April 11 (Xinhua) -- After posting a 70 at the first round of the 83rd Masters tournament on Thursday, American star Tiger Woods said it's a good start to kick off his campaign at the Augusta National Golf Club.
"I felt like I played well and I did all the things I needed to do today to post a good number. I drove it well, hit some good iron shots, and speed was good on the greens," Woods said.
"It was tricky because the wind switches directions, but I controlled my golf ball all day, so hopefully I can do it again. It's not a bad start. I've only shot like under 70 one time, but I've shot 70 in the first round four times that I have won here."
Americans Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau both scored a six-under par 66 to share the lead on the standings while Woods finished 11th with nine other golfers.
"We have a long way to go. I feel like my body's good and my game's good, it's sharp, so just got to go out there and execute and I got to do the proper things," the four-time Masters champion added.[ Editor: zyq ]
