ORLANDO, Fla. – Tiger Woods turned at Bay Hill in even par, the author of an uneven round of three bogeys, a birdie and an eagle – hardly the stuff of legend but the former world No. 1 still draws an audience.
Despite pulling the week’s, maybe the year’s, best gallery on Saturday, Woods’ Tour brothers also still keep a close eye on him, like as he made his way to the 10th tee adjacent Bay Hill’s practice tee.
“How’s he hitting it?” asked one Tour type. The answer: erratically.
He followed solid drives at Nos. 4 and 6 with a poor approach (No. 5) and a poor chip (No. 8). Still, his week at Bay Hill is a sign of progress. “One thing at a time,” swing coach Sean Foley smiled Saturday afternoon.
