After one round of play at the Frys.com Open, Briny Baird, Brendan Steele, Garrett Steele, and Matt Bettencourt lead the field at 4-under par. This tournament would be barely a blip on the radar screen if it weren't for the return of noted golf enthusiast Tiger Woods, and he's, well, pretty much doing what he's been doing for years now — not much of anything. Woods is +2 and six strokes off the lead.
Woods hasn't played since his disaster turn at the PGA Championship, and, as has been his buggaboo, he fell victim to an implosion hole. After a birdie to open his round, he bogeyed the next two holes, but was able to steady himself for eight straight pars before a double-bogey on 12 that pretty much sealed a bad round for him. He saved it a little with a birdie on 13, but finishing 2-under is, the new normal for the former world No. 1.
Some notable golfers having some success in this tournament are Ernie Els (-2), and ... well, really no one. This is tournament incredibly bereft of talent, which makes it even more depressing/satisfying that Tiger is struggling this much.
