DORAL, Fla. (AP) Patrick Reed ended a long opening round at the Cadillac Championship on Friday with a 4-under 68 to take a one-shot lead as the new Blue Monster showed some bite.
Just ask Tiger Woods.
A four-time champion at Doral, the world's No. 1 player finished off a 76 for his highest score in 40 complete rounds on the course. He wasn't alone. Steve Stricker, the runner-up to Woods last year, had a 77. Masters champion Adam Scott took a big step back in his bid to reach No. 1 in the world with a 75. Four players, including former U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson, failed to break 80.
