Tiger Woods heading for this year's Irish Open: rumours

Tiger Woods heading for this year's Irish Open: rumours

He played Thursday in a button-down shirt similar to the one he wore during his Masters practice round with Woods.

The 14-time major victor, who has won the Claret Jug on three occasions, made his comeback earlier this year after spending 16-months on the sidelines with chronic back injury issues that has required four surgeries during his career.

On Sunday, the PGA Tour announced the marquee grouping of Woods, Mickelson and Fowler - a rare Woods-Mickelson matchup in the early rounds of a tournament.

Woods and Mickelson have found themselves grouped together on 32 occasions. 11 and 12, Mickelson double-bogeyed the 14th hole, bogeyed No. 15 and, with a rinsed approach shot, took double on 16.

Woods' playing partner and old rival Phil Mickelson had a day to forget, carding a disastrous seven-over 79.

"I got to drive it a little bit better than I did today, and obviously hit the ball closer", Woods said when asked what he needs to improve on. "Now, I don't know if he wants a piece of me", Mickelson joked. "I feel like I was playing better than that, like I should have shot something in the 60s". More than 70 players were under par by the time Woods got back to even, so he'll need to make birdies on the back nine to keep pace.

The next chapter in the Woods story is at the Arnold Palmer Invitational this week where he has a very real chance of adding an 80th PGA Tour victory and ninth over the Bay Hill course near Orlando

"Any event that attracts someone like Tiger Woods is catapulted to another level", said told Brian Keogh.

"We had to go out there and tear this place apart", Woods said.

Then there's this week, at least before the first shots were hit in anger: Each was trying to win another Players title, on a course about which neither ever sounds particularly effusive. Tiger needed two more shots in Tampa.

Woods made eagle at the ninth hole to return to even par with the easier back nine ahead. Woods, meanwhile, safely negotiated the penultimate hole with a par, only to yank an iron tee shot into the water at the par-four 18th, his safety-first strategy backfiring.

Woods said Mickelson even offered some short-game advice during Woods' struggles in 2015. "Just get a couple things straightened out, minor tweaks, and it will be a fun week". It's just that with the amount of hype coming, we probably expected far more than he gave (and we certainly expected a two-man total score better than 151). When Woods battled injuries, Mickelson checked in on him. "So looking forward to building off of last week and see if we can get the putter straightened back out, and we'll be good to good".
