Nick Watney Shoots Even Par at PGA, Tiger Woods Not So Much

The PGA Championship is in full swing down at Atlanta Athletic Club, and some of the Bay Area's finest golfers are in the field. Fresno State Alum Nick Watney is in the mix after shooting an even par 70, placing him seven shots behind leader Steve Sticker. But the rest of the Bay boys aren't faring so well, namely a one Tiger Woods.

 The pride of Stanford golf, Tiger Woods, is making his second start since returning from knee and Achilles injuries earlier this year, but still is trying to find his game of yesteryear. Tiger limped (figuratively) into the clubhouse with a seven over par 77 with five bogeys, three doubles, four birdies and six pars to fill his rather schizophrenic scorecard; Tiger's worst score ever in relation to par in a major. 

Sacramento native Spencer Levin shot a tidy one over 71 while former Cal Bear Charlie Wi shot a three over 73, leaving him in a good spot to make the cut but is a full ten shots from the leader.
