It’s official: Tiger Woods’ 2011 season will begin next week at Torrey Pines
No. 4 Phil Mickelson will also make his PGA Tour debut after also playing in the European Tour’s Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, which is pretty big news of course, but there’s only one Tiger here. Mickelson has won this event three times to Woods’ six. Woods missed the 2009 Farmers event due to knee surgery and 2010’s due to some off-course distractions you may have heard about. Prior to his hiatus from Torrey Pines, Woods won three straight events on the course.
You would think if there’s any course where he could get this year off to a good start, it would be this one. Dear mistresses: book your flights to San Diego now so you can arrange a meet-up. So how will he do? I say he makes the cut and finishes inside the top 20.
