ST. LOUIS — What Tiger Woods really needed after two holes at the PGA Championship was a fresh start.
A change of shirts helped do the trick.
Too bad he couldn’t do something about those ugly numbers already on the scorecard.
A bogey-double bogey start left Woods scrambling to stay close Thursday at steamy Bellerive Country Club. After having his caddie grab his backup shirt from the bag, Woods popped into a restroom near the 12th tee box, put on the dry shirt and shot 3-under the rest of the way to finish at even-par 70. That kept him six shots back of the early leader, Gary Woodland.
“It kept me in the golf tournament,” Woods said.
