Tiger Woods’s return to competition on Wednesday at the Accenture Match Play Championship generated a 1.8 rating for the Golf Channel, its highest-rated first round. The network drew an average of 1.7 million viewers, the most for any round of a tournament it has televised. 

Sadly, Tiger lost his second round match, and ratings tears were shed at both the Golf Channel and at NBC (who has the Saturday and Sunday tournament telecasts).
