Man oh man, this could be a pretty historical slaughtering on hands at the Gallery outside of Tucson - Tiger Woods is three down to J.B. Holmes through five holes two down through six holes in the first round match.

Tiger bogeyed the opening hole, a par-5, and Holmes made two other birdies to go three-up before Tiger's birdie on the sixth hole, a par-3.

Even if Tiger pulls out the victory, you won't be seeing a Rory Sabbatini match-up, as he went down 4 and 3 to Bradley Dredge this morning. Sabbatini was the two-seed in Tiger's bracket, getting smoked by Dredge on the back nine.

Also, Colin Montgomerie pulled out the win against two-seed Jim Furyk over in the Sam Snead Bracket, knocking out Mr. Quirky Swing 3 and 2.

Other than that, nothing too crazy has happened. Vijay Singh needed a birdie on the 19th hole to hold on Peter Hanson, advancing to the second round where he'll face Niclas Fasth.

More updates to come, especially with this Tiger-Holmes battle.
