Tiger Woods shoots even-par 72 at Farmer’s Insurance Open

  Tiger Woods shoots even-par 72 at Farmer’s Insurance Open Tiger Woods brought big crowds back to golf, and he even produced a few big roars on his way to an even-par 72 in the Farmers Insurance Open in his return to the PGA Tour.In his first PGA Tour event in a year because of a fourth back surgery, Woods mixed a few mistakes with a few shots that looked familiar Thursday on his way to an even-par 72 in the opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open.


Rickie Fowler may be a fan favorite on the PGA Tour, but he wasn't pleased with the behavior from the crowd on the famous 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale on Thursday.

Fowler carded an opening-round 66 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, but made his lone bogey of the day at the raucous par-3 16th, failing to get up-and-down for par from the greenside bunker.

"I was a little disappointed with some of the stuff that was said, and I don't want much negativity," Fowler told Will Gray of the Golf Channel. "The normal boos for missing a green, that's fine, but leave the heckling to a minimum and make it fun, support the guys out playing."

The event in Phoenix is considered to be the loudest stop on the tour each year, with 250,000 spectators expected to attend the third round on Saturday.

"Tomorrow's definitely going to be louder, and Saturday afternoon's a beauty," added Fowler. "Just hit better shots there, you'll have more fun."
