Tiger Woods has steady start, early lead in The Barclays

Updated, 11:35 a.m.

Now that both he and his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, have publicly discussed their divorce, there's only one thing left for Tiger Woods: climbing out of the giant sinkhole his golf game has fallen into as if it were a Sonic drive-in.

After the ignominy of a 7:10 a.m. tee time (no live TV coverage, but at least he didn't sleep through his alarm), Woods fired a 6-under par 65, good for the early lead, in The Barclays at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, N.J. (See live leaderboard.) He had a steady day on the course, finishing with only one bogey (on the par-4 12th hole).

Woods is hanging on to the No. 1 ranking and his performance in The Barclays this week at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, N.J., will help determine whether he makes the Ryder Cup team, to be picked next month by U.S. team captainCorey Pavin. He can no longer earn an automatic berth by winning the event, but a strong performance might make Pavin's decision easier. The team is to be announced Sept. 7.

That 'Tiger Woods Is Finished' is A shocker! If not as surprising as the return of another article that read 'Tiger Woods Is Anything But Finished'...

So where is Tiger on the fairway closer to the tee where he's got to evaluate what had made him from the beginning? Or maybe something a little lighter and easier to his accomplishments of finishing strong on the green.

This problem he's up against, sounds a whole lot more pyschological(that heckler on the golf course could hold a point even with adversity from the crowd) than anything real to do with golf. He's got a problem on his hand. There's no doubt about it. SO DOES NIKE!

This puppy is racking in hundreds of millions of dollars for them a year. And that will have alot to do with crafting a solution for Tiger Woods.

Prognosis Tiger: I think it may be better for him to play a different game of golf than the one he or they are used to see him playing.
