OPENING SHOT

The PGA Tour gets an injection of the singular stimulant known as Tiger Woods this week for the Genesis Open. It's not a bad model: Deliver a solid product with a healthy crop of young talent. Then, 12-14 times per year for the next decade or so, Woods provides his signature bump... While all tournaments individually have an interest in Woods participating in them, the Tour as a whole may benefit from TW's limited exposure.
