Rory McIlroy clears the air over US Open and Open Championship comments

Tiger Woods

"It's a major championship golf course, so you've got to come out and be patient with yourself and take your chances when you get them". That is his longest such gap since January.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Tiger Woods made it to the weekend at Quail Hollow, dealing with his share of troubles on the greens on a course that he said is significantly more hard than when he played it last in 2012. In the end it left him with a shot to spare.

Here are a few things to consider as Woods' comeback resumes. Names such Rory, Rickie, and Tiger will steal tons of ownership and attention as people get more excited for golf with the PLAYERS right around the corner.

Woods is making his first appearance in the event since missing the cut in 2012.

Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy made it to the weekend, though not by much.

That result, coupled with his otherwise good play at last year's PGA, suggest he will be one to watch this week after an adventurous outing at the teams event in Louisiana.

"I was just trying to say that from where those tournaments were in stature in this game to where now the Masters is, I feel like the Masters has replaced those two tournaments".

Like he lamented after his opening round, Woods said he's having trouble figuring out the speed of the greens. And yet it has cost him scoring opportunities. Didn't birdie any of the par-5s.

Throw in Woods' substandard iron play at the Masters, and there is plenty of room for improvement.

But OAIC is now making further inquiries after a report by APRA slammed the bank for its "widespread sense of complacency". It did not tell customers because "we balanced the need to alert customers without unnecessarily alarming them", he said.

"I've struggled with the greens being as slow as they are", Woods said after shooting a 2-over 73 on Friday.

"I'm over thinking about it because someone told me, and it was a great way to put it, I'm not trying to have it for a week", said Thomas in a post round interview. Last week: Billy Horschel and Scott Piercy won the Zurich Classic. "I'm sure they'll keep them around where they are right now". The scores have varied.

But when asked to clarify his "don't care" remark at Quail Hollow last night, where he opened with a three-under 68 to lie a three behind early clubhouse leader John Peterson, he did little to win more friends at the USGA or the R&A, claiming his "don't care" comment was taken out of context.

However, McIlroy faces competition from an extremely strong field, which includes the 10/1 priced Justin Thomas who won the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow previous year. He is even for the tournament and three strokes out of the top 12. There is no doubt that he should contend as a legitimate option to finish in the top-10. In other words, high finishes are now required for significant rankings bumps.

So far, Quail Hollow is the second-toughest course of the season.

This week, Lowry is priced at odds of 125/1 to land the prize at the Wells Fargo, a tournament he finished 24th in past year, marking one of his better displays of 2017. Woods is ranked 33rd. "I just think the Open and the US Open were the biggest tournaments in the world".

This week is no exception.

Man of the moment, Masters champion Patrick Reed, represent a tempting bet at 22/1. Next week, the Players boasts the best field of the year outside of the majors.
