Somewhere during the walk between the driving range and the first tee, it's all going wrong for Tiger Woods.
At the Masters, he set the tone for the tournament with a snipe hook into the pines and never recovered. At Quail Hollow last week, he made bogey on the most benign of starting holes and missed the cut.
And the song remained the same Thursday at The Players Championship...

Unfortunately, in today’s world, Tiger...

No worries, though. It was just a broken shoe.
Woods snapped the eyelet during his tee shot at the par-4 No. 5, called for a backup shoe and made a quick swap following his approach shot on the next hole. He found some rhythm a few minutes later, enough to...
