Tiger Returns As Rahm Defends Farmers Insurance Open

Hot reads: Oddsmakers doubtful Woods will make weekend at Torrey

Now it's someone else's turn to be humbled.

"To be honest with you, I just want to start playing on the Tour and get into the rhythm of playing a schedule again", Woods said to the reporters, according to Fox Sports."I haven't done that in such a long time, so I don't know what to expect. I'd like to have them feel that same way". "The more big-time players we have on Tour, the better it is for the game globally and he's obviously one of those".

"The commotion and attention he brings to a tournament, the crowds he brings out, the energy level he brings out is amplified 10 times", Billy Horschel said on Monday (Tuesday NZT) in the quiet PXG trailer parked at Torrey Pines.

Woods hasn't been at the top since 2013, when he won five times.

In this last decade, of course, things have changed.

Expectations surrounding Rahm have ratcheted up thanks to his playoff triumph on Sunday at the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, California.

The US-based Rahm overtook three-time major champion Jordan Spieth to reach world No.2 after clinching the CareerBuilder Challenge last week, following his breakthrough win at Torrey Pines past year.

By the time they finally asserted themselves, Woods was deep into his free fall.

"I know if I play my best golf and I put four rounds together I won't be too far off the lead and compete with these guys". Woods, at No. 647 in the world, is not eligible for a pair of World Golf Championships in March.

Deputy shot and killed in Adams County identified as Heath Gumm
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Adams County Sheriff's Office and the family and friends of the deputy killed". A tweet from the Adams County Sheriff's Office told people to stay in their homes and to stay away from windows.

The 42-year-old underwent spinal fusion surgery, the fourth major operation on his back, but he looked in good health at the Hero World Challenge last month and remains optimistic of being able to play a full schedule in 2018.

Even after so many aborted comebacks, the intrigue is impossibly high.

"Tiger shares a rich history with Torrey Pines Golf Course, and with the Farmers Insurance Open, in particular".

Told that Woods hit the first fairway and made birdie, Reed's eyes widened: "Really?"

"I've also played with some of these younger guys". "A lot of us dreamt about having the opportunity to maybe walk the back nine with Tiger in contention and have a battle hand-in-hand".

"It would be something wonderful for any of us". Defending champion: Jon Rahm.

There, the 22-year-old was stranded for more than 24 hours as 250 global flights were cancelled due to an estimated 16 centimetres of snow falling in the centre of the Japanese capital. "I won here in 1994, a memorable day, Greg Norman was world No. 1", he said. You could feel he's getting ready for something. We want that challenge. But "home comforts" of a kind may just prove invaluable to the game's greatest modern player at Torrey Pines.

Zach Johnson, of course, is part of a generation that already knows. It was the scene of the last of his 14 major titles 10 years ago - achieved on a broken leg - and venue for seven other Tour titles. Even though he admitted that his expectations are tempered by the fact that he hasn't played on TOUR in a year, Woods talked Wednesday about compiling a schedule that best prepares him for the Masters.

Bill Mallon agrees: "He was so good once it would be hard to dismiss him, but coming back after four back surgeries and multiple left knee surgeries - I'm sure he's got arthritis".
