Woods off to shaky start at Torrey Pines

Tiger Woods reacts after just missing a birdie putt on the sixth hole hole of the South Course at Torrey Pines Golf Course during the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open golf tournament Thursday Jan. 25 2018 in San Diego

Woods one-over through nine at Torrey Pines

On Thursday at the Farmers Insurance Open, after not having played an official PGA Tour round in 52 weeks, Woods almost aced the 223-yard, par-3 16th hole at Torrey Pines on the South Course.

He was so predictably good that in late January 2008 - the year the US Open was coming to Torrey Pines - caddie John Wood lingered behind the 18th green on the South course and watched as Woods finished off an opening-round 67.

He dropped another shot at the par-four fifth but birdied the next hole and picked up another two gains either side of a bogey after the turn.

He also birdied No. 10, a 416-yard par-4, where he hit a sand wedge from 130 yards to tap-in range, and No. 16, where he nearly celebrated a hole-in-one as the greenside gallery erupted. Huge eagle putt pulls up inches short, tap-in for BIRDIE.

The first round of Farmers Insurance Open 2018 unfolds today (Thursday, Jan. 25) at Torrey Pines G.C.in California.

Kentucky school shooting suspect expected in court Thursday
A 911 emergency call was placed soon after and first responders were at the scene by 8.06am, said Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin. Jasen said her daughter was "an angel here on earth" and "was ideal in every way". "Her smile was so contagious", Davis said.

"I went through every single procedure that is non-surgical and it just didn't get better", he said of his back and his make or break decision to have two vertebrae in his lower spine fused. Two-putt par from 38 feet. Tricky pitch from rough to four feet, good putt to save PAR.

Of all of Tiger Woods' historic accolades - 14 major championships, 79 PGA Tour titles - this may be one of the most curious footnotes to his career.

Woods says he's delighted to be playing without pain after spinal fusion surgery in April, but the day was not without its frustrations.

"I have to hit my irons a little better than I did today", Woods said in a post-round television interview on the Golf Channel.

"In Majorca, in my town, where I live, the wind is very hard, so it's like this", Sobron Galmes said. "I feel like I've done that and now it's time to play a tournament".

Samsung Insists They Are Still The Top Smartphone Company In India
As per GfK data, which is based on actual sales, Samsung's volume market share in the October-December 2014 quarter was 34.3%. The Shenzhen-based Transsion Holdings has offered smartphones at Dollars 10 per unit, making it the top mobile phone vendor.

Finau's seven-under 65 on the North course gave him a one-shot lead over fellow Americans Ryan Palmer and Ted Potter Jr.

On Friday, Woods will tee off at 9:30 a.m. on the slightly tougher North Course, playing with Patrick Reed (tied for fourth at 68) and Rancho Santa Fe's Charlie Hoffman (tied for 633rd at 71).

"I like playing in the struggle, I grew up playing in the wind, and I do enjoy playing hard shots and stuff like that", Smith said.

"It was fun to compete again", Woods said.

"The greens are bumpy and I hit a lot of good putts", he said.

High hopes for new ambassador for religious freedom
The prolonged nomination process and razor-thin margin on final passage reflect additional concerns that Gov. Senate has confirmed Brownback as ambassador-at-large for worldwide religious freedom in a vote Thursday.

"Good momentum going to tomorrow". The bunker lie forces a layup and the wedge shot into the green didn't quite carry the ridge leaving a long uphill putt to try and end the day with a birdie. The birdie putt from 27 feet delivered the first knee-bend reaction from Tiger as the putt trickled just past the hole. A simple stress-free par keeps him at even heading into the final hole. Hit a couple bad iron shots that I could have given myself birdie opportunities, but this is golf, right?
