Tiger Woods Teams Up With Tony Romo

Watching highlights from day 1 of the Pebble Beach pro am, it was cool to see Tiger golfing with Tony Romo, and I plan to tune to watch day 2. This is a year where I have predicted that Tiger will win a significant tournament (if not a major championship). Not sure that a pro am counts as substantial, but it would be nice to see Tiger and Tony win this thing. Tiger shot a 4 under 68 in his first round, which put him in 15th place with 87 golfers breaking par in pristine conditions. Romo is a secretly good golfer, who beat Tiger on 3 holes, but Woods obviously carried the group, as is standard in a pro am.

This may not be as exciting as the Happy Gilmore - Bob Barker pro am, which was filmed at Furry Creek near Vancouver (where I have golfed), but is still good television. Tony, show them you're a Tiger! Hey, that has extra significance considering that Romo has the same first name as Tony the Tiger who pumps Frosted Flakes. Isn't it ironic?
