Tiger Woods returns to Torrey Pines, struggles on back nine

While Tiger Woods stole the spotlight for much of the afternoon, Justin Rose ended up on top of the leaderboard after the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open. Here's how things look in San Diego, where Rose holds a one-shot lead over another recent runner-up:

Leaderboard: Justin Rose (-7), Adam Hadwin (-6), Gary Woodland (-5), Brad Fritsch (-5), Charles Howell III (-5), Brandt Snedeker (-4)

What it means: Woods was the main story entering the day as he made his first official PGA Tour start in nearly 18 months, but he was unable to keep pace on the rugged back nine on the South Course. Hadwin's 66 led the way on the more difficult of the two layouts in play this week, but Rose will sleep on a slim advantage after carving up the par-5s on the North Course.

Round of the day: Rose is making his first start since a second-place finish at the Sony Open, and he picked up right where he left off with a 65 that featured a pair of eagles. Rose was actually 1 over through six holes before turning it on, as the Englishman played the quartet of par-5s in 6 under after hitting all four greens in two.

Tom Brady silences Charles Barkley with insane birdie in 'The Match'

Tom Brady's start in "The Match" with former NFL star Peyton Manning and PGA Tour legends Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods wasn't great, leading to an endless parade of criticism on social media.

The six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback found a way to silence the haters with this remarkable shot for birdie on the seventh hole at Medalist Golf Club.

Charles Barkley is part of TNT's telecast, and was in Brady's ear all the way up until he hit the shot.

Unfortunately for Brady, his pants didn't survive the hole.

Warriors star Steph Curry and former Warrior Andre Iguodala both are avid golf fans, and were just like the rest of us after seeing Brady's shot.

The San Mateo native got his mojo back, but he and his partner Mickelson have some catching up to do with Manning and Woods in control.
