Tiger: 'I know I'm not that far off'
Tiger Woods is playing Dubai this week and he's not concerned about his game.
Tiger Woods played in the Champions Challenge (not part of the actual tournament) at the Dubai Desert Classic on Tuesday and shot a 1-under 71.
The round was a nice reprieve from those eulogizing his career after he shot a 79 and MDF at the Farmers Insurance Open last weekend.
After his round Woods told Golf Channel he went home on Sunday after the Farmers Insurance Open and practiced his putting in his backyard before heading out for Dubai.
He also noted that he's going to be fine.
"I didn't change anything," said Woods. "I know I'm not that far off. I just happened to have one bad day and that happens."
He's right. I'm not a Tiger apologist but the level of ridiculousness with which people reacted after a single bad round at Torrey Pines on Saturday was insane.
The finish at Bethpage Black on Sunday should be tremendous
Jordan Spieth is out here trying to win golf tournaments and please the masses
Patrick Reed holds a two shot lead over Rickie Fowler and Emiliano Grillo after the second...
Jordan Spieth is not a very good speller
Fowler shot a 4-under 67 but couldn't stop thinking about Hazeltine
Not sure on the math here, but Spieth's general idea makes some sense
