Can’t help but think Frys.com Open officials missed an opportunity here. Instead of pairing Tiger Woods with Rocco Mediate, who questioned Woods’ swing recently, the former world No. 1 will play the first two days at the Fall Series stop with last year’s British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen and amateur phenom Patrick Cantlay.
Woods’ group tees off at 12:10 p.m. (PT) on the first tee on Thursday.
“I love the way he plays, but I’m disgusted with what’s going on with him because it’s sad for our game,” Mediate said last month. “A lot of guys are happy Tiger isn’t playing well. I’m not.”
Mediate, the Frys.com defending champion, is on the other side of the draw from Woods, teeing off at 7:30 a.m. on No. 10.
