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.

    To Tiger Wood, Hire a few female bodyguards to shield you from temptation and distraction. They should remove those temptress in your vicinity. On with what you do best – Golf. Don't overestimate your ability to resist temptation.

    @LadyM-you're wrong. I'm a black woman and I disagree with you. Speak for yourself Hon.
    @Tiger My Hero-not all of us (black women) are wide and unattractive Dear. Perhaps you should get help for the penis envy you obviously suffer from. I have to wonder if your 'lil wee-wee' is making other objects and body parts seem abnormally large by comparison. 🙂
    Go Elin-I wouldn't stay with a man who treated me like that either.
    No comment on Tiger's adulterous ways: he has to answer for that. But I wish him well on the golf course.

    Golf is so mental that Tigga' was unable to focus on the game as he should. You can't be thinking about the carpet or linoleum you just thoroughly ate and pounded before tee time when you need to be focusing on the drives, approaches, and putts you need to make in order to win. The only hole he should be focused on, if he wants to win more tournaments regularly, is the 4.25" one on the greens and less about the two located between women's thighs.

    To Tigersucks, I clicked on the link from CNN that said "Tiger shoots a 65", expecting/hoping the report would be about hs golf game, which still interests me. Unfortunately, there was only ONE short sentence about his golf, and then the media mudslinging took over again. Sad. I guess we need another good war or international catastrophe to get to some real news

    A true champion may fall down, but never fails to get back up and try again...

    Tiger...
    You Eff-Up...But, as many have said here...That is yours and your wife's problems.
    We understand that Golf is a mental game and perhaps that is why you so dear sucked in the last couple of months.
    Perhaps you should had taken a little extra time off to not embarrased yourself in the golf course.

    Tiger, you will be allright, time heas everything and I'm still confident that in the next 50 yrs you will still be remembered for being a great golfer and not for banging chics NOT AS ATTRACTIVE AS YOUR OWN WIFE!

    Good Luck

    I hated to see Tiger's talent going down the slide. We all know that he shouldn't have ruined his marriage but even the best of people make mistakes. Both Tiger and Elin will be fine, hopefully he gets his golf game back and she gets past this embarrasment. He is a true champion, I'm in awe of his golf talent....if you ever get a chance, watch him live – it's amazing.

    When Tiger was interviewed for television on the divorce, it's the first time I ever heard him talking about someone other than himself!

    This is a nobrainer. The man purposlessly tanked his game leading up to the divorce because Elin gets half his earnings up until then. NOW its over, he will begin winning again. When he does everyone will say the "divorce" was getting him down, when in reality it was all about the money.

    people really cared whether Tiger was screwing around? Oh, come on...
    You cared because it proved he was human perhaps, not some golf android.
    You cared because it meant he'd not only not married you, but not slept w/you (or, maybe, that you still had a chance...were you hanging around outside the rehab/counseling clinic?).
    You cared (a teensy bit) because he was really, really, REALLY wealthy and a top golfer.
    But did you really expect him to carry the hopes and dreams of your children, your generation, of the nation, of all married men everywhere...grow up.
