The Weekender: Tiger Woods Edition


Tiger Woods, in his first-ever Wyndham Championship, finished up today at 6 under par for the first round, good enough to put him tied for fifth place after the first day of tournament play as of press time.

There’s a lot of other stuff going on this weekend, but if Tiger makes the cut tomorrow all bets are off.
