While he hasn’t walked a full 18 since his knee surgery, Tiger Woods isn’t worried about being prepared for the US Open at Torrey Pines when it begins on Thursday. In fact, it’s just the opposite — Tiger says he’s ready.

Here’s an interesting tidbit I haven’t heard discussing Tiger’s dominance:

He has made just five starts on the PGA Tour this year, but still leads the FedEx Cup standings with three wins, a second-place finish and a fifth. He also won a European Tour event in Dubai. His lead over Phil Mickelson in the official world golf ranking equals the gap between Mickelson and the No. 287-ranked player.

This makes Thursday’s pairing of Tiger and Phil the Thrill all the more enticing.
