Tiger Woods birdied the first hole of Wednesday’s pro-am — and he made it look really, REALLY easy

By Alex Myers
It was just one hole. Of a pro-am. But boy, did Tiger Woods make it look easy. Really, really easy.

Again, we don’t usually read too much into practice-round highlights. Heck, there usually aren’t even practice-round highlights to get excited about, but with Woods making his first official PGA Tour start in a year, the cameras were rolling when he arrived at the first hole of Torrey Pines’ North Course on Wednesday morning.

Never mind that my actual calendar says it’s only February.
