Follow Phil and Tiger: LIVE (Sort of)

Phil risks an arm to tackle the autograph hunting mob.

The inscrutable powers that be have given Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson back-to-back tee times this PGA Tour Thursday. The result, an early morning televisual blackout, will frustrate many, but the media savvy need not shed a tear: intrepid on-course reporter Stephanie Wei will be providing updates throughout the morning.

For a rolling, minute-by-minute account of events on both nines, head to’s Press Tent.

Alternatively, a Stephanie-centric record of the first round can be found here, on Twitter of all places. Expect plenty of impressionistic, stream of consciousness commentary.
