Tiger sizzles at Buick

Tiger Woods apparently does OK with driver in his hand, too.
The best golfer on the planet opened his first round at the Buick Open with five straight birdies. He is tied for the lead at 5 under and the tournament is just resuming play after a 2-hour delay.
Woods is in prime position to make a sixth birdie on his 10th hole (No. 1 at Warwick Hills).
The second half of the 2006 season could be downright scary if Woods keeps this up.
