Tiger Woods live score: Updated PGA Championship leaderboard, results, highlights from Thursday’s Round 1
Tiger Woods will be back in a major golf tournament for the second time in 2022.
Woods appeared at the 2022 Masters, his first major appearance since a near-fatal February 2021 car crash, and made the cut after the first two rounds, though he began to fall back late, finishing in 47th at 13 over par.
Woods is now set to appear at the 2022 PGA Championship, which is being held at the site where he won the event the last time, the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
He’s starting Round 1 in a challenging group, including two of the top contenders for the 2022 PGA Championship. Joining him at the 10th hole at 9:11 a.m. ET will be Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth. McIlroy is the only other golfer in the field besides Woods with multiple wins (McIlroy won in 2012 and 2014; Woods’ four wins trail only Jack Nicklaus’ and Walter Hagen’s five wins for the most). Spieth has never won the PGA Championship.
The Sporting News is tracking scores and highlights from Tiger Woods and his group, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, from the first round of the 2022 PGA Championship. Follow along for coverage of their day at the Southern Hills Country Club.

Hole 13, Par 5
Shot 5: Spieth finishes the tip-in shot after his near miss. Woods knocks in the short putt for par.

Shot 3: Woods’ third shot bounces off the green and into the back bunker. Spieth’s chip shot picks up too much speed when it hits the green out of the bunker and speeds a bit past the hole. McIlroy is placed well to have him set up just outside the hole.
Shot 2: Woods lays up his second shot to set himself up with a wedge shot on the par 5. Spieth and McIlroy both send their second shots into the bunker to the right of the hole.
Shot 1: Spieth with a good start sending his drive straight down the fairway. McIlroy’s drive travels a similar distance to Spieth’s, but a bit closer to the edge of the fairway. Woods’ drive doesn’t have the carry of Spieth’s and McIlroy’s, but he joins them on the fairway on the first hole.
Hole 12, Par 4
Shot 4: Woods knocks down the putt for par.
Shot 3: Woods’ putt for birdie has the force behind it, but it doesn’t reach the hole, and it trails to the right and past the hole. He’ll have a close putt for par. Spieth sinks the putt for birdie, as does McIlroy. Assuming Woods makes his next shot, the group will also be 1 under.
Shot 2: Another good approach by Woods. He drops his iron shot on the green in range for a potential putt for birdie, but a more likely two-putt for par. Spieth with a really nice approach, setting himself up with an uphill putt for birdie. But McIlroy’s shot sets him up better than either of them. He drops his shot inside two feet from the pin as he will have a great chance at a birdie.

Shot 2: McIlroy lands on the green, but it starts to roll a bit away from the pin. Spieth also has a nice approach on the green, though his ball too picks up some speed as it rolled down the slope.
