PGA Tour: Farmers Insurance Open second-round tracker

SAN DIEGO -- It seems as though that this might be a match made in heaven.

Tiger Woods fired an opening-round, 4-under 68 to sit off three shots off the Farmers Insurance Open lead at a course that he has won seven times on - Torrey Pines.

Woods got to within a shot of Brandt Snedeker and K.J. Choi, but picked up two bogeys over his last three holes to fall outside the top 10.

Woods teed off at 12:20 p.m. EST on the easier North Course.

And off we go!

Back to some "Did You Know?" . . . Between 1998-2005, Woods made 142 consecutive cuts to break the PGA Tour record, which was held by Byron Nelson. The streak started at the 1998 Buick Invitational and lasted until the 2005 Wachovia Championship.

Today, we are going play a little "Did You Know?" about Tiger. We'll start with this gem: Woods ranks first in career money leaders with $100,950,700. With all of his earnings, you could go to Disney World on a 1-day pass 1,062,638 times.

Hole wrap-up: Tiger is dialed-in with the fairways thus far, splitting his second of the day. Also hits nice iron shot into the green to set up another birdie opportunity. But, for the second consecutive hole, he can't take advantage and settles for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even (4 under for tournament)

The weather could be a factor today, with forecasts calling for light rain and a high in the low 60s. Tiger is dressed in rain pants in preparation for the weather.

Hole wrap-up: Tiger used a lot of driver in Round 1, but just pokes a fairway metal into the fairway here. He does hit the green in regulation, but misses his birdie putt and settles for an opening par.
