El Gato Grande has returned. The GOAT, BIG CAT, T.WOODS, Captain RED Shirt is BACK. Officially back playing a PGA tour event for the first time in 17 months and boy was it good to see Tiger out at Torrey Pines. Did he light it up? Nope, far from it but it was a step in the right direction. Torrey will be a true test for Tiger compared to the easier, more laid back course and field of the Hero World Challenge.
After bogeying the first hole, Tiger pared the next 8 holes to turn at +1. With back to back birdies at 10 and 11 everyone started to get FIRED UP but Big Cat couldn’t keep the new Driver in play as he missed a bunch of fairways coming in, three putted 13 and made some simple errors. The biggest concern is and has been his Driver for a while now. The dude cant find a fairway. When accurate with the Driver, Tiger has shown his ability to hit some great iron shots and wedges. When missing the fairway he is scrambling to make par and it has eventually caught up with him.
Air Force Big Cat is warming up as we speak…unless our boy shoots a sub 70 round tomorrow. LETS GO, there is still hope!
