Tiger's teeing much improved; Elin lookalike?

The same week Tiger Woods divorces, he bounces back on the golf course.

Tiger Woods was the Tiger of old Thursday - shooting a 65 and is tied for the lead at the Barclays in New Jersey after his first round.

His performance comes a few days after the formal announcement was made that he and Elin Nordegren are legally splitsville. His performance at Barclays is being noted by Golf.com who also pointed out a Nordegren lookalike on the green.

Tiger had been playing the worst season of his professional career until Thursday.

Nordegren's first, and perhaps last, interview was published in People Wednesday in which she said she'd "been through hell" with the golfer over his alleged extra-marital trysts. It was last November that this poor SUV and subsequently Tiger's reputation took quite a beating.

    Don't really care anymore. There's a whole lot of important stuff going on in the world than to be bothered with Tiger Wood. He is a pig n he don't deserve Elin.

      Tiger did the right thing. A woman that does not please her man, will lose him to others sooner or later

      What the hell is Elin have to do with anything? I see nothing but a flat blonde chick. The only reason anybody even knows who she is is because of her husband.

      If you are man and you are complaining it is becasue you are jealous you are not him. If you are a woman and you are complaing about him it is because he did not choose you!

      Kinda like how's he's a second rate husband & some would argue father. No, matter what you think of Elin (and btw, none of you know her although you act as if you do), he could have left her if he was not happy. His children will have to live with what he did for the rest of their lives & no amount of money fixes that.

    Now that the divorce is over Tiger can go back to winning since he won't have to pay 1/2 of it to Elin.

    Now that the settlement has been signed, he will have a quick recovery and start making money again. Funny, how that happens with rich guys.

      I was reading last night about how Charlie Sheen ALLEGEDLY pluled a knife on his wife on Christmas Day (thank you TMZ) and I had a thought for a new TV reality show. It's called: Anna David is Here to Kick Your Butt The premise of the show is that when Hollywood celebrities step out of line and show bad behavior, they're going to have to deal with Anna. And God help them!So say you're a celebrity who beat up on your spouse, or got a DUI with your kids in the car, or had a wardrobe malfunction on live TV, or assaulted a paparazzi photog, or blew $500K at a Las Vegas casino, expect to see Anna show up at your door to read the riot act ( What the F were you thinking? ) and dole out some harsh justice. Who needs Judge Judy?The main selling point is that people everywhere are fed up with these Hollywood prima donnas. They need to be slapped down and given a reality check and Anna is just the person to do it.Tagline: There's a New Sheriff in TownWinning formula, right? I'm thinking VH1 on Sunday nights right after Celebrity Rehab.
