Catch Tiger today

Tiger Woods came back from 3 down to beat J.B. Holmes in the first round of match play at the WCG-Accenture Match Play Championships on Wednesday. Would have been interesting to see what Anthony Kim could’ve done against Woods. Kim was scheduled as the 64th seed, and therefore, would’ve played Tiger Woods. But Ernie Els decided at the last minute to enter the field, even though he previously said he wouldn’t. Els did what he normally does in match play and was upset in the first round by Jonathan Byrd, 6 and 5 – tied for the worst loss of the day. Woods tees off against Arron Oberholser at 10:39 a.m. this morning.

Mickelson on his Riviera win

Phil Mickelson has something Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus don’t: a win at Riviera. Does that make the win sweeter?
“That’s not what I’m looking for,” Mickelson said. “But the fact that (Ben) Hogan, (Sam) Snead and (Byron) Nelson are on here, I think that’s really cool.”

Mickelson wins

Phil Mickelson shot a 1-under 70 Sunday to win the Northern Trust Open. It was his first win in the tournament in 11 tries. He had a one-shot lead after 54 holes and even though Jeff Quinney briefly took the lead after Mickelson bogeyed the ninth hole, Mickelson rallied quickly for the victory.
