Early expectations


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – For all those who have been living in a media blackout the last three days we preface this morning’s action with an ominous foreshadowing of what Tiger Woods’ week would be like from former swing coach Butch Harmon.

“For the Tiger fans out there I wouldn’t have high expectations,” Harmon told XM Radio on Wednesday.

Thursday’s opening 2-under 70 likely exceeded some expectations from the world No. 1 but he’s off to a familiar start on Friday, 1 over after two holes following a wayward tee shot and approach at the par-5 11th hole.
