The best thing that can be said of Tiger Woods’ return to Internet gambling competition is that he is still in the hunt after day one. That Woods chose one of the biggest tournaments in gambling online action to make his return certainly doesn’t make the transition any easier, but then again Woods is not your average Internet gambling golfer. He showed little sign that his repaired knee bothered him but his up and down play was perhaps less than what Internet gambling fans had been expecting.
For any Internet gambling fans expecting to see Woods take the course at Torrey Pines by storm, you’ll have wait at least another day as the gambling online results were hardly inspiring. But nor were they discouraging as the world’s number one logged a 1-over par 72. His day started off on a rotten note as he double-bogeyed the first hole in what must be one of his worst starts to an Internet gambling Major. But the round is 18 holes long and not one, even though he managed to shave only a stroke off the remainder of the Internet gambling round. He had another double bogey on the 14th hole that wiped out his three birdies and sent his Internet gambling score back into the black. He also muffed a chance for par on 18 and settled for a bogey, adding another stroke to his Internet gambling score.
This is hardly an insurmountable lead and weather could also play a big factor in Internet gambling scores from here on out.
But much more remarkable than Woods Mediocre play in the opening of this Internet gambling competition was the outstanding play of two unknowns who climbed their way to the top of the gambling online leader board. Kevin Streelman and Kevin Hicks, both ranked lower than 600 in the Internet gambling rankings both booked -3 under par rounds to take the lead at an Internet gambling Major event.
History would dictate that they won’t stay in these positions for long and that sooner later Woods will make a run at the Internet gambling title, but still; you can’t help but pull for the underdog.
