Recapping The First Day At The Championship With Tiger and Da Boys
Tiger Woods seeks to continue on his winning ways this week at the CA Championship being held from March 17 – 23, 2008 in Doral, Florida. Woods who is fresh off that impressive win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, which was his sixth straight victory around the world, is the three-time defending champion this week at the CA Championship.
The CA Championship’s Leaderboard has Geoff Ogilvy and Miguel Angel Jimenez sharing the first-round lead after posting matching 7-under 65s Thursday, which is a one stroke ahead of Stewart Cink and two clear of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott, Anders Hansen and Nick O’Hern. Woods was said to be in a bad mood after a bogey on the Blue Monster’s 18th hole. In his defense, that hole really bites, no comment on how I have played that hole.
Co-leader Jimenez birdied four of the final five holes to tie for the lead. He is down playing Thursday’s success though, hoping to go on Friday and continue but he has been around far too long to get overly excited about one round on a Thursday. Phil Mickelson also had an up-and-down round but was able to bounce back from a double-bogey in the water with four birdies over his final six holes for a 67. Adam Scott, who won the Qatar Masters with a closing 61 earlier this season, is also at 67.
Other notables were Luke Donald and Ross Fisher who shot 68, with Justin Rose and Nick Dougherty at 70, but it was a dreadful day for Colin Montgomerie, who stumbled to a 75.
