Tiger puts on energy bar eating display at Oak Hill

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

Tiger's hungry. For majors? Sure, but it's energy bars that he was eying on Thursday at the PGA Championship. A lot of energy bars. Throughout the years Tiger has been pretty open about his on-course eating habits, preferring peanut-butter sandwiches, fruits, nuts, and Gatorade to help keep his energy levels up. But it was energy bars that he feasted on throughout his front-nine at Oak Hill (no doubt to the chagrin of our fitness editor, Ron Kaspriske), with the camera catching him him noshing on them a number of times during the round. And worked fairly well for a while, too. He made the turn in two-under, which left him two shots off the lead at that time, but went on to shoot a one-over-par round of 71.[#image: /photos/55ad76c7add713143b4277f7]|||tiger-granola.gif|||

The only thing more impressive than Tiger's par saves today has been his caloric intake. Plowing through some energy bars.
