There has been nary a Tiger Woods sighting yet today — nor was there expected to be, given that he has said he is not playing a practice round. At some point, one would imagine Woods will emerge and take some practice swings, chips and putts. For now, though, we are amusing ourselves by walking the course and listening in as fans mill around wondering when/if Tiger might show up.
“There’s someone down on the (driving) range,” one said. “It looks like Tiger.”
(It looked absolutely nothing like Tiger).
John Daly is said to be on the course — must have started around 7 — and we’re hoping to do a little walking with him in not too long. We’re told Phil Mickelson should be on the course in due time as well.
We’ve been here since about 6:40 and we, too, feel a little lost without The Great Cat prowling around. For those who don’t know, we are resuming our Tracking Tiger feature from seven years ago. We wrote this for today’s special section.
As such, action on RandBall will tend to be PGA-centric (and sometimes non-existent while we’re out on the course) through Sunday. If you don’t like golf, feel free to talk amongst yourselves about Rick Pitino.
