Oh, Tiger. Sometimes, it just isn't your day. When he started the round three-under par, it got us hoping that the old Tiger Woods might finally be back. Three double bogeys and a whole bunch of other bad holes later, Tiger is in the clubhouse after completing round one at seven-over par.
The announcers on the PGA.com feed of the tournament started talking about Woods needing some serious help to be able to play golf on the weekend. You know, despite the fact that it's still only Thursday. That's how badly he collapsed after his hot start, and though it sounds like hyperbole, Woods really is in some serious trouble of missing the weekend. Players are putting up low scores, and a round with three double bogeys just isn't going to cut it.
One of those low scores belongs to leader Steve Stricker, who is six-under par through 14 holes. Adam Scott is holding steady at three-under. Bubba Watson has also had an odd up and down day, putting together a string of four birdies in a row before later hitting five bogeys in a row. Watson sits at two-over.
