Round 1 score bad omen for Woods

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – If you believe in omens, the 74 posted by Tiger Woods doesn't bode well for U.S. Open chances. He has shot that score or higher four other times as a professional and his best finish is a tie for 12th.

The only time Woods has missed a cut as a professional in the U.S. Open, 2006 at Winged Foot, he opened with a 76, but he was still in a tie for 68th. Right now, with most of the afternoon wave of players still on the course, Woods's 74 is good for a share of 83rd.

In other words, this Bethpage experience certainly isn't shaping up like 2002 when he opened with a 67 and went wire-to-wire.
