NASSAU, Bahamas -- A flop shot that required feel. A wedge to a back pin that he had to trust. Tiger Woods followed those two birdies with a perfect 6-iron that he wanted to be even better, urging it to move one yard ... one yard!The golf ball didnt listen. Television viewers did.And his three straight birdies after going 466 days without competition sure got everyones attention, even those who were playing.When I saw that he was 4 under through eight, I wanted to withdraw so I could go watch him, Russell Knox said.Was he back to being Tiger Woods?Of course not.This was only the front nine of the first round at the Hero World Challenge. By the end of the week, Woods was 15th out of 17 players . What returned was the excitement of having him inside the ropes again.Everybody loves the comeback story, Matt Kuchar said. A guy like Tiger, good or bad, draws attention. If its good, it gets really exciting.So hes back. And now hes gone again.Still to be determined is when he will play and how much. There has been chatter, and nothing more at this stage, of Woods playing in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship the third week in January. HSBC already has Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson, not to mention Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson, and might not want to break the bank. But a happy and healthy week for Woods in the Bahamas -- not to mention his 24 birdies -- certainly raised interest.Torrey Pines is a week later and a more likely start.Woods said in his heart of hearts he wants to play a full schedule. It will a different one, at least early.Riviera is back on the schedule because his foundation runs it. The Valspar Championship at Innisbrook is in play because its a week after one World Golf Championship and two weeks before another -- both in the month leading to the Masters. Woods isnt eligible for either WGC event and wont be unless he wins before then.That leads to the more critical question.When will it be time to stop marveling at seeing the red shirt and start judging him by red numbers on the scoreboard?Woods doesnt like any victory that doesnt come with a trophy, so he was quick to point out silly mistakes and six double bogeys whenever he caught himself getting too excited talking about his good golf. But he had reason to smile. Only the winner, Hideki Matsuyama, had as many sub-par holes. Woods shot 65 in the second round with no bogeys, not a tall order at Albany except that it was his first tournament in 15 months.This was a good week for him.His swing showed very little stress. It was graceful, not violent. Woods knows he isnt among the top power players anymore, though he showed ample length off the tee, even finding an extra gear on occasion. He said before the tournament he had all the shots, and there was little evidence to suggest otherwise.He just didnt score very well. But only those wanting to see him fail cared about that after such a long layoff.That will change over time. Theres just no consensus on when.Give him three or four tournaments, maybe six tournaments, maybe around the Masters, Henrik Stenson said. Probably give him a number of tournaments and he might be in contention in one of the early ones next year. Then you know you have the answer quicker. Its easy to overanalyze a very limited amount of golf.Kuchar said he has low expectations of Woods in the Bahamas, and was impressed to see him start 73-65-70.I still dont hold him to any standard just yet, he said. Hes kind of a new man. Great to see. Shoot, he gets back in the hunt and wins a tournament, youd have to put those expectations right back on him. For having nearly two years off, its hard to hold a guy to his typical expectation level.Brandt Snedeker was curious to see how much progress Woods makes in his next tournament. Others, like Jordan Spieth and Zach Johnson, had a longer view when it came to measuring Woods by his scores.To me, its if we can chat next year at this point, Johnson said. Its not so much the golf game and the golf swing and the putts being holed and contention. Its physically. Can he withstand a Tiger year, which is what, 15 to 20 events?Curiosity has given way to anticipation. Doubts have been replaced by optimism.Reality is still months away, if not longer. http://www.steelersrookiestore.com/Steelers-Mike-Wagner-Jersey/ .

Jon Montgomery of Eckville, Alta. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Members of the Band Perry say theyre taking precautions as they prepare to travel to Brazil for the Summer Olympics, due to the concerns about the Zika virus.The sibling groups pop-influenced song Live Forever was chosen as Team USAs official song, and theyre heading to Rio de Janeiro to perform on television and also for the athletes. The opening ceremony will be held Friday.Neil Perry said he isnt worried, but said his brother Reid and sister Kimberly were nervous about the trip. Brazil has had an outbreak of the mosquito-transmitted Zika, which has been linked to brain-related birth defects, but health officials say the risk is low. Several athletes and journalists have decided not to attend the Olympics because of the health risk.I think its definitely been hyped, so we are going to take some precautions and perform in Saran Wrap, Kimberly Perry joked. So we should be good. Maybe bee keeper outfits.The Perry siblings will debut a new song, Comeback Kid, on the Today show while in Rio, their first single from their new joint venture with Universal Music Group and Interscope Records after leaving Big Machine Label Group last year.The band, which has had crossover success with the mulltiplatinum hit If I Die Young, called the move an important transition.ddddddddddddFor us, weve always been an international band and weve always had aspirations for international success, said Reid Perry. To be able to be with UMG and Interscope, that just opens a whole lot of opportunities for the three of us that we really wanted to do.The band had been working with producers like RedOne and Diplo on an album that was scheduled to come out last November. Most of that album was ultimately scrapped as they moved to a new record deal. They said they hope to release a new album by the end of this year, with a coinciding tour to start next year.Kimberly Perry, who has sported blond curly locks since the bands debut in 2010, revealed her new brunette hair color to match her brothers brown locks. Its been an adjustment for her husband, baseball player J.P. Arencibia.Sometimes I dont recognize myself still, Perry said. My husband says hes still getting used to it. He likes it, but he just likes blond better.--Online:www.thefansperry.com--Follow Kristin M.
