After getting "some breathing space" off the first tee on Thursday, Tiger Woods quickly recorded his first birdie of the 104th PGA Championship at Southern Hills.

Woods hit his approach shot to 3 feet at the par-4 10th, his first hole of the day, to immediately reach red numbers.

After three consecutive pars, Woods added a second birdie at the par-3 14th, after hitting from 222 yards to 13 feet.

Woods bogeyed the par-4 15th, however, to drop to 1 under par. He also closed his opening nine with a bogey at No. 18, to shoot even-par 35.

It didn't get any better for the four-time PGA champion over his second nine. He made five bogeys to just one birdie, completing an opening, 4-over 74. He was nine off the lead and tied for 91st place when he signed his card.
