Enjoy the weekend.
Great quote on Geoffshackelford.com.
It was yet another strange performance from Tiger Woods at the Waste Management Open. He had seven 5's on his card. His once peerless short game resorted to ultimately using a putter. He shot his age on the front (39) and was a demoralizing +5 thru 11 holes.
It was also the first time he'd ever shot over-par in his first official round of the year.
But he got some back with a stupendous 225-yd 5-iron to kick in range for eagle on the par-5 13th to finish with a 2-over 73.
"This is my second tournament in six months, so I just need tournament rounds like this where I can fight through it, turn it around, grind through it and make adjustments on the fly," Woods said.
Woods twice chipped with 4-irons, which he called my "old-school shots from Augusta." On two other occasions, one after a chip he knocked across and over the green, he opted for a putter. It wasn't a bad play, but it used to be rare to see Woods choose to putt from the fairway instead of chip.
"I'm just having a hard time finding the bottom," Woods said. "Because of my old pattern, I was so steep on it that I have a new grind on my wedge and sometimes it's hard to trust. Some of my shots were into the green with tight pins and either I'll flop it or bump it, one of the two. I chose to bump it."
More on his round...
By the numbers, Tiger hit five of 14 fairways and 10 of 18 greens in regulation.On the up side, he seems to have recovered some of the speed he had lost in recent years, as he said he had. At the 13th hole, his swing speed was clocked at 121.465 miles per hour. Last year, Bubba Watson led the tour with a swing speed of 123.7 mph. On the par-4 17th hole, Woods drove the green, 341 yards.
I did correctly predict he'd lose to both partners Patrick Reed (even) and Jordan Spieth (-1).
The process continues this morning at 8:57 CT.
Paula Creamer scored a sweet ace at the Coates Golf Championship. What I noticed was how long it took for her to finally pull the trigger.
How about :47 seconds?
I enjoyed attending the LPGA Shootout in Dallas last year. But the gals sure tend to take their sweet time.

Keegan Bradley said he took some time to relax during the off-season.
So, what did he do? Attend Boston Celtic and Bruin games? Go to an island?
He hit the course nearly every day.
“I played golf every day. Pretty much seven days. An off day for me would be no practice. Just playing. So I get together with my buddies and go play a game out on the course. That to me is a day off. If I’m going to go practice and work out, I’ll do a lot of short game, hitting balls, stuff like that.
“But this off-season I played a ton, and then once the season started to get closer I would practice a little more. Wouldn’t play 36 a day. Played 18 and practice, something like that.”
Must have paid off as he shot a 65 yesterday at the Waste Management Open to trail Ryan Palmer by a shot.

Oh those Aggies...
Should be a great day to catch some golf on GolfChannel. Tiger Woods makes his Tour debut today at the Waste Management Open. Even better, he's grouped with young guns Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth.
Tiger has won his first event of the year seven times. Reed took the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and Spieth won his last two starts including a 10-shot rout at Woods' Hero World Challenge.
“Really I think it’s more that we stick to our game plan,” Reed said. “It’s just trying to play our game of golf and not anyone else’s.”
“Tiger’s event, that is as good as I have ever played,” Spieth said.
My guess is at least one of the 20-somethings beats their elder Tiger today.
Part of the package of being a world famous celeb is the possiblity of someone filing a lawsuit to dig into the very deep pockets.
Rory McIlroy is no different. After playing in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (he shot a 6-under 66 in the first round), McIlroy will head to Dublin to face the onslaught of lawyers attempting to discredit his side for former management company Horizon Sports.
McIlroy might have to appear in front of the beak for up to six days, as the legal teams pick over the contract he signed, which he claims to be “unconscionable” but which Horizon claims proves he owes them millions in commission.
“This is not something you want hanging over your head,” MciIroy said. It’s not something that I would want anyone to go through. It’s a very tedious and nasty process. It’s a shame it’s gone this far. But it’s hard when two sides see things completely differently. The only way seems to be to get a judge to sort it out and tell us what to do.”
“Of course I cant wait for it to be finished,” he said. “Hopefully, it won’t take too long and that it will all be over and done with and we can all move on with our lives Yeah, look, I'm going to be heading to the States regardless with it off my mind and not having to deal with it or think about it. That will be it.”
Alas, it seems everything comes at a price.
On the heels of Robert Allenby complaining he has only one media friend, the always refreshingly blunt Brandel Chamblee believes today's pro golfer is far too thin-skinned.
“In every other sport, when you mess up a coach yells at you, screams at you,” Chamblee said. “Your teammates let you know. But if you’re good at golf, you are lauded at every turn. You’re written about, told how great you are, every door is open to you. At no point do you get criticized as a golfer.”
When they eventually play their way onto telecasts and hear later they were criticized, “they don’t talk to you any more. They think they are entitled to being lauded at every turn. They’re used to it.”
Of course, not everyone on Tour is like that, but it's hard to argue Chamblee's explanation.
