Tiger tees off; Atwal on his game

Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Davis Love III all just teed off here at Aronimink ( click here to follow them live with Shot Tracker). Earlier in the week, however, Arjun Atwal played a practice round with him.

“He got better every day leading up to the U.S. Open. I know he didn't play a great final round or whatever, but he's been getting better,” said Atwal, who also routinely plays and practices with Woods at Isleworth. “His ball-striking has gotten a lot, lot better.”

Atwal also played every practice round at the U.S. Open with Woods and though he leads here, he says he doesn’t exactly try to compare his game with Woods’.

“It's strange because we practice and play every day, so I've stopped doing that,” Atwal said. “Initially when I used to practice and play with him, I used to compare myself, but now it's just whatever.” -- Brian Wacker
