The article offers information on the prediction of golfer Tiger Wood's performance at the U.S. Open golf tournament at Torrey Pines, California. It is stated that although Torrey might feel like home to the Tiger, he is not expected to win at the Open. Trampoline fairways and wrist-breaking rough at Torreys which require straight driving, a weakness of Tiger, is considered to be the main reason for the lack of performance predicted.
