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 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.

    It's about time. I don't care who he was effin', that was between him and his wife. Now maybe he can recapture the magic he used to have on the golf course.

    Time to get over it and move on. Most of us lost interest months ago. BUT, all of you headline grabbing, marketshare-mongering, life-destroying media mudslingers just couldn't resist sensationalizing what should have been a private matter between two people, both of whom probably deserved a lot better than the poo poo the media covered them in.

    Tiger Woods sucks at being married as much as he does his golf game the past few months.

    He's free to concentrate on golf now, don't have all that legal stuff haning over his head, just have this feeling that he's long overdue.

      Totally agree with you Bogey. Now that he got rid of that golddigging wife of his, maybe he will be regain his game. We don't know what went on behind closed doors. Who's to say Elin is Miss Innocent.

    After reading the comments left previously by these self-proclaimed studs, I have one thing to say. I hope you have billions of dollars in your bank accounts because with your boring personalities, you won't be attracting women any other way.

    I am sure there was some prenupt. She did not get half of what he owns and half of his future earnings, which is good.
    So to compare – she got as much as my ex -wife did.

    Maybe this is out of topic, but although Elin has a twin sister, as somebody mentioned, I think Tiger is decent and raised with proper dignity and grace. He will never go after the sister, like Larry King did I feel nauseated everytime I mention LK .

    Elin has put her blinkers because she knows since day one she married him her life is set. I dont think she is as naive to say she's been through HELL. Smart lady as her knows no matter what she gets away with hims money
