Tiger Woods makes first major championship birdie back from injury

Tiger Woods got off to a tough start with bogeys at the first two holes but he held things steady with some long par putts and got a chance to get one back at No. 5 with the birdie putt you see above.

He buried that to get back to 1 over for the tournament thru five holes.

Is that a concern? Maybe -- mostly because some of his short stuff has looked horrific -- but as multiple folks pointed out on Twitter, Woods didn't play the first few holes at Hoylake particularly well when he won back in 2006, either.

For him it's all about the par 5s and the back nine.
