Tiger Returns, But Stevie Williams Steals the Show

Adam Scott, working with recently-fired caddie Steve Williams, fired an 8-under 62 to take the lead.

Tiger Returns, But Stevie Williams Steals the Show

Tiger Woods felt that it was time for a change when he decided to part ways with long-time caddie Stevie Williams a couple weeks ago.  Williams hopped on the bag of Australian golfer Adam Scott.  Tiger returned to competitive golf today at the Bridgestone Invitational, where Scott was playing.  With Williams caddying, Scott shot an eight-under 62 to take the early lead while Tiger sits six strokes back.

You can't make this stuff up.

Woods was more than solid in his return from knee and achilles injuries.  He bogeyed just once and his putting looked much better than in past tournaments.  But Scott was brilliant today, matching his career-low score.  He also happened to be doing it at the same time Tiger was on the course.  Coincidence? I think not.  It appears that the secret to winning PGA tournaments is Stevie Williams, and I am picking Adam Scott to win every tournament he plays in for the remainder of the PGA season. 

The leaderboard is crowded and Scott only enjoys a one-shot lead.  Jason Day put up a -7 before Scott's round, Nick Watney shot -5, and nine golfers shot -4.  Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood are both in the mix at -3.  Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Luke Donald, and Sergio Garcia are all at -2.  There are planty of talented golfers within striking distance after one round of play.  The low scoring should make for an exciting tournament, especially if Scott keeps playing this well and Tiger is in the hunt.  Check out the full leaderboard here and let Charged keep you updated on the tournament the rest of the weekend.
