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.
