FARMINGDALE - All eyes were on Tiger Woods as Round 1 of the 2019 PGA Championship began Thursday morning at the Bethpage Black in Farmingdale.

Woods' fans came out in full force, including one person in an actual tiger onesie, others dressed as Woods in a classic red polo and a woman wearing a shirt with the golfer's face all over it.

The crowds around Woods ran about as deep as their passion for him. Getting a good glimpse required some help, like stools, binoculars and even a periscope.

On Friday, Woods tees off at 10 of two.
