A Superb Start For Stenson Overshadowed Tiger Woods’ Good Work

◼️ In the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the former number one of the world rose from a double bogey on hole 3 and was four under par although four hits away from Stenson, the absolute leader.

Tiger Woods goes through 2018 in good shape and competitive when facing a tournament. After getting second place last week in the Valspar Championship, the former one of the world started in seventh place in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, another tournament corresponding to the PGA Tour.

The 42-year-old American was able to overcome a double bogey on the 3rd hole and with six birdies he signed a 68-punch card, four under par for the course at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida. However, his good work ended up overshadowed by the Swedish Henrik Stenson: nine birdies and a single error for a total of 64 (-8) that gave him the leadership alone.

The Scandinavian, winner of the British Open 2016, leads only by an impact to local Aaron White and Talor Gooch. From behind, three shots, other Americans appear: Rickie Fowler, Jimmy Walker and Bruston DeChambeau.
