"F-yeah!"

Who else has a Bay Hill hangover? I do. Combine that with heavy turbulence in the last 30 minutes of a flight from MCO to EWR, along with the crazy cab ride (if you think NYC cabbies are bad, I suggest an experience with one in Newark. Glad I took an extra barf bag with me!/end rant), and you can imagine how I feel. Well, now that I’ve voiced my god-awful complaints because you all asked, I’ll move on to the actual point. Don’t think I can’t hear those massive violins you’re playing softly in the corner.

While Tiger Woods was presented with the trophy for winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational by a commanding five shots and being fitted for his seventh Blue Jacket on the 18th green at Bay Hill, we cornered his veteran and highly-respected caddie, Joe LaCava, in a media scrum next to the scoring trailer.

Thanks, everyone...except for the jerk that made the spike marks interfering with my putt on 18...

Last time Tiger Woods had at least a share of the 36-hole lead at a PGA Tour event was at the 2009 Tour Championship. Oh, how time flies — and yes, it’s really been that long. However, he did lead at the halfway mark four months ago at the Australian Open, and then played his way out of contention in the third round but bounced back on Sunday to finish third. Not to be Debbie Downer, but let’s not get too excited yet (I’ve learned the hard way when I seriously thought he was going to win by five at Pebble, instead he shot 75 and got his butt whooped by Phil Mickelson).

So that's what it's like to make a putt!

On a day where he admittedly didn’t do anything great, Tiger Woods managed to shoot three-under 69 at Bay Hill, where he’s won six times, and put himself in good position on the leaderboard in the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He made four birdies and one bogey, and left a few shots out there with two three-putts (you know, pretty standard these days).

Well, Tiger certainly looks like he's in better spirits!

Oh, what a difference eight or nine days make! — on Monday and Tuesday morning Tiger Woods arrived at Lake Nona (via car, not helicopter a la Isleworth and Queenswood) for the lavish exhibition matches, and walked the golf course without a hint of a limp or incident. Phew. Tiger, who represented Albany, had one of those nothing-to-call-home-over days and shot even-par in Day 2 of the Tavistock Cup. Ho-hum.

Driving it 321 yards never felt so bad...

 

One minute Tiger Woods looked like he was in good spirits, smiling after he had just saved par out of the bunker on No. 11 at the Blue Monster, and the next, he was doubling over in pain after smoking a drive 321 yards down the left-side of 12 fairway and shaking playing partner Webb Simpson’s hand.

Uh-oh, not again.
