Woods fires 64, 2 off lead

– Tiger Woods had his lowest opening round in three years Friday in the Deutsche Bank Championship. It still wasn’t enough to be low man in Sean Foley’s coaching stable.

Seung-yul Noh, a rising star from South Korea in his first season on the PGA Tour, ran off four straight birdies early in his round and closed with back-to-back birdies on the TPC Boston for a 9-under 62.

That gave him a one-shot lead over Chris Kirk, whose 23 putts included an eagle on the new 18th hole.

The 21-year-old from South Korea won his first Asian Tour title at age 17, and he chose to come over to America this year to ease his travel. He made it through Q-school in December, and on Friday turned in his strongest PGA Tour round to date.

“Everything good today,” Noh said.

Woods wasn’t too shabby. His lone bogey on the final hole gave him a 7-under 64, putting him in a three-way tie for third with Jeff Overton and Ryan Moore.

Rory McIlroy struggled off the tee, though he judged one of the lies in the rough beautifully on the ninth hole, a 7-iron into tap-in range that led to a 65.

EUROPEAN: In Crans-Sur-Sierre, Switzerland, France’s Julien Quesne shot a 6-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead in suspended second round of the European Masters.

Quesne finished with four straight birdies to top the leader board at 9 under. England’s Danny Willett was second after a 67.
