Tiger starts strong at Bay Hill 

March, 15, 2007
I'll try to keep this in terms that most of you bracket-heads out there will understand and appreciate. A No. 1 seed has never lost in the first round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Tiger Woods is golf's definitive No. 1 seed, the ultimate favorite anytime, anywhere he tees it up.

So it stands to reason that on the first day of the NCAA tourney, Tiger advanced into the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational riding a fair amount of success.

Even though his beloved Stanford Cardinal were soundly smushed by the Louisville Cardinals (what a difference an "s" makes, huh?) on Thursday, Woods preserved prestige within the school by shooting an opening-round 6-under 64
