ATLANTA -- It took 21 holes, but Tiger Woods' birdie drought at East Lake is over.
Woods was the only player not to make a birdie here in the opening round. It was also just the seventh time in his career and first since the first round of the 2010 U.S. Open that he went an entire round without one.
Friday, that streak finally came to an end with a 10-foot birdie putt on the par-4 third hole. Woods, who came into the week first in the FedExCup standings, has since added two more birdies, including on the ninth hole above to make the turn in 3 under and get back to even par for the week.
