Kevin Streelman will give Tiger a go on Saturday

For years, statistics have shown that the most gruesome, terrifying experience for players on the PGA Tour (reflected by their scoring average) is playing in the same group as Tiger Woods.

Why wouldn't it? Tiger attracts the biggest, loudest crowds who will surely erupt after every single one of Tiger's shots. Of course, Tiger will pull off unbelievable feats of golfing greatness as you try to play alongside him. Also worth noting, dealing with the intimidation of a number one player in any sport is tough.

So, it appears that Kevin Streelman is in for a tough ride on Saturday at the Buick Invitational. Streelman, who is a PGA Tour rookie, made it into the Buick field as the last alternate, which forced him to prepare for the tournament with uncertainty.

However, in Streelman's 7th PGA Tour start, rounds of 67 and 69 have put him in contention...and in Tiger's group.

Streelman, who attended Duke University, still trails Tiger by four strokes. Of course, it will be interesting to see whether or not the 29 year old will be able to keep up with Tiger in the first high pressure, PGA Tour moment of his career.
