2011 PGA Championship: Tiger Woods Tunes Up With Nine Hole Practice Round

After tying for 37th at last week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Tiger Woods played nine practice holes Tuesday morning in preparation for the upcoming PGA Championship. The tournament will be his first major since finishing fourth at April's Masters.

Woods was joined by his teacher, Sean Foley, as well as fellow tour professional Arjun Atwal. Foley was reportedly "adjusting and tweaking" Tiger's mechanics throughout the duration of the practice round, and Atwal was left gushing at the results by the end of the day.

"He looked good," Atwal said. "He's really flushing it and got that sound again. He just needs more repetitions."

A large procession followed former number one ranked golfer in the world throughout the afternoon, snapping pictures and requesting autographs. Woods seemed to enjoy the attention, but did not speak to reporters after the session. The 14-major winner is scheduled to address the media at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.
