The hole saw I pictured has no center guide drill bit. Either do what Tim suggested (as I did on the sample piece shown) or you angle the edge of the saw and get the hole started and slowly tilt the saw to a vertical position. Variable speed drill is critical here. The only reason I used the angle method is because the hole was about 2 1/2" in diameter and I didn't have a holesaw for wood that was that big.

If that doesn't work, I'll always think it should have.
