Despite the swirling of rumors all around him that he might be dating Lindsey Vonn while reports indicate that he may be attempting to woo back ex-wife Elin Nordgren at the same time (what tangled webs we weave), Tiger Woods trudges along on the golf course, attempting to recapture the long-last magic that made him the most feared golfers in PGA Tour history. And much like it has been for a few years now, Woods had an up-and-down round on the first day of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Playing on the South Course, Tiger had an uneven performance and headed into the clubhouse after shooting a 68, three shots off co-leaders Brandt Snediker and K.J. Choi heading into Friday’s round. But on the 6th hole, that old Tiger magic resurfaced when the still tremendously skilled Woods flopped a shot out of a greenside bunker, holing out for an eagle. Said Woods, commenting on his overall round, in typical Tiger-speak: “”I made a few mistakes out there, but I made some nice plays as well.” A nice play, indeed. Something Woods still is capable of doing, but consistency is what remains elusive for him. And figuring out a way to keep his name out of the gossip pages. That would be nice, too.
