Meanwhile, Padraig Harrington, during this event he had said, “This is the first tournament I’ve ever played in that Tiger Woods is playing in that he’s not the star of the show.”

“He should note that himself. He ain’t the star of the show this week, and that’s very much among the players and the pros. We’re all going down the range, and everybody is stopping to watch Charlie. Move out the way, Tiger. It’s incredible the buzz it’s created.”
