NOTES
Tiger Woods won his fourth straight Buick Invitational last year, an eight-shot victory over Ryuji Imada that also marked the world No. 1`s sixth title in San Diego. He would, of course, go on to win one more time at Torrey Pines last year: his thrilling playoff triumph over Rocco Mediate at the U.S. Open. Woods still hasn`t played since then as he continues to recover from left knee surgery, and this week will mark the second in a row that he`s unable to defend a title. Woods also missed defending his 2008 win in Dubai last week. Only one player besides Woods has won the Buick Invitational since 2003 -- John Daly, who has no status on tour and won`t be in the field this week. In fact, the only champion from the past 10 years who`s in the field is Phil Mickelson. Lefty, who won the tournament in consecutive years in 2000-01, had a disastrous start to his `09 season with a badly missed cut at last week`s FBR Open. The champion of that event, 48-year-old Kenny Perry, will not be at Torrey Pines. The Golf Channel has exclusive coverage of the first two rounds, but will split the weekend broadcasts with CBS. Next week is the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, where Steve Lowery won last year.
