In Case You Forgot in Four Days That Tiger Was Good
It snowed about four inches last night in Denver, making the thought of playing golf in Dubai almost unthinkable. Nonetheless, El Tigre decided that winning the Buick Invitational by eight shots on Sunday, flying 8,404 miles to Dubai and then teeing up wasn't enough - the Freak is up two shots after round one.
Tiger shot a 7-under 65 Thursday (wait, today is THURSDAY!!!!) to lead the tournament by two over 11 other golfers.
I guess Ian Poulter is going to give it another week before it is just him and Tiger, shooting a respectable 2-under 70, but has let 41 people between him and his only match, Mr. Woods! What is he thinking?! Come on Ian, that kid from the British Open last year, Rory McIlroy,. is beating you. That sounds like that guy from "Tin Cup."
