Is Tiger in the Tank? Just Add Gasoline...

And maybe he'll light it up. Back in 2004, when his game was top notch, he shot a 75 in his first round at Whistling Straits, struggled to make the cut, and finally finished up at T24.

Thursday, hot off his worst tournament this century, he got it to 3-under before finishing at 1-under 71. I guess you could say he picked up where he left off -- although the first round isn't finished as I write this, he's currently T24.

Given the circumstances, I'll call that "lighting up the course."

While it remains to be seen how he'll finish, this may be the most encouraging start of the year for him -- both in terms of play and attitude. You go, Tiger!

Bubba Watson and Francesco Molinari got into the clubhouse with rounds of 68, and are the best of the finished rounds so far. Bubba was an absolute genius around the greens.

Here's a quick look at my picks so far:
  • Jim Furyk: Finished at -2
  • Anthony Kim: Finished at +2
  • Adam Scott: E after 13 holes
  • Hunter Mahan: +1 after 10 holes
  • Rory McIlroy: -1 after 13 holes (after going +3 in his first four holes!)
There's not much I can say until they get some rounds finished, so I'll let it go at this for now. Let's see what we get at the cut!
