NOTES
It was a winless and probably pretty joyless 2010 for Tiger Woods. This time a year ago, his life was falling apart around him and he withdrew from this tournament. Officially, he pulled out of last year`s championship due to the injuries suffered in the one-car accident just a week before. It was soon after that we learned the full extent of what was happening. This event features an 18-man field comprised of the current four major winners who accept invitations, the top-11 available from the Official World Golf Rankings, the defending champion and two special-exemption players. Those sponsor exemptions were handed out to Camilo Villegas and Stewart Cink. The event was dealt a blow early in the week when Martin Kaymer, the PGA Champion and winner of the European Tour`s season-long Race to Dubai on Sunday, withdrew. He was replaced by Nick Watney. Jim Furyk, this year`s FedExCup winner, shot a five-under 67 on Sunday last year to edge reigning U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell by a single stroke. The victory, although unofficial, was his first since the 2007 Canadian Open. McDowell got into the tournament only because of Woods` withdrawal. What a difference a year made for both. This is the 12th year of the event and 11th straight at Sherwood. Golf Channel has the first two rounds before NBC takes over on the weekend. Beginning Friday of next week is the Shark Shootout, which was won in 2009 by Jerry Kelly and Steve Stricker
