Tiger Woods is back on the Black Course at Bethpage, playing a practice round in preparation for his U.S. Open title defense. Woods made a detour on his way home from winning the Memorial in Ohio, playing 18 holes Monday with swing coach Hank Haney. The Open is June 18-21.

Newsday reported that several dozen golfers who planned to play at Bethpage State Park's four other courses spied the world's No. 1 player and immediately pulled out cell-phone cameras.

Woods planned to return home to Florida later Monday and practice on his home course.

He won last year's Open at Torrey Pines in a 19-hole playoff against Rocco Mediate. He won the U.S. Open in 2002, the last time it was held at Bethpage Black.
