The PGA Tour is live at the Waste Management Phoenix Open as Tiger Woods makes his debut at TPC Scottsdale and he will be the main event as the tournament goes down alongside the Super Bowl and in the first round, players like Keegan Bradley and Zach Johnson have started out well, while Woods is schedule to tee off around 2 pm ET and live stream coverage is online.
Woods is coming back after a terrible season and he dealt with numerous injuries and now is hoping for a better 2015. Woods did not win last year and he dealt with serious surgery and multiple injuries and now he has his debut at a place where he not had past success. Woods is getting ready for a full schedule and he said that he is driving the ball better than he has in years. Woods needs to do better overall this season, as he has not performed up to his usual standards at majors either.
Woods said he felt good coming into the tournament in Phoenix and he said he was surprised how much better he was able to drive the ball. Woods dealt with a back issue last year and that forced him to undergo surgery and now he is looking to bounce back. Woods is also getting ready to play at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines next and he has had some strong success there in the past. Woods is set to tee off on Thursday at 2 pm ET with Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth and then he will start off in the morning on Friday.
Woods is playing here for the first time in over a decade and he said one of the reasons why was due to some security measures when a fan had a loaded gun in his bag there in 2001. Woods said he felt much better now than when he had a fan throw an orange at him and he added that having the Super Bowl in Arizona is a nice bonus for the golfers as well. Woods is ready for a big season and he said he expects to be healthy for the duration this time around.
Woods made some news this past week when he lost a tooth while visiting his girlfriend Lindsey Vonn at a competition and now he is back with a full smile. Woods has won eight times at Torrey Pines and he said Arizona would be a nice warm-up for that tournament. Keegan Bradley and Shawn Stefani started the day in the lead at the Phoenix Open and names like Hunter Mahan, James Hahn, Zach Johnson and Justin Leonard are all in the mix ahead of when Woods tees off on Thursday.
