Tiger and Ernie getting along fine


PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – In case anyone was wondering, Tiger Woods and Ernie Els are getting along just fine as playing partners during Round 1.

Els had been critical of the timing of Woods' first public appearance post-Nov. 27, which was held at TPC Sawgrass on the Friday of the WGC-Match Play Championship.

On Thursday, however, the two seemed to have worked everything out, chatting and laughing as they walked up the 13th fairway.
