Perfect pairing


SAN DIEGO – The PGA Tour contrived the pairings for the fans and TV, but it may be the players who benefiting the most from the marquee matchup of Tiger Woods and Anthony Kim.

Kim and Woods – who are also paired with Rocco Mediate to commemorate the 2008 U.S. Open showdown at Torrey Pines – are a combined 8 under par through seven holes on Friday and inside the top 10 at the Farmers Insurance Open.

“He really loves this,” Kim’s swing coach Adam Schriber said of the pairing with Woods.
