The Answer:

Well, the answer is that before he goes to the range or anything else, he stops at the putting green with Stevie and hits 100 five foot putts.
He hits all of them from the same spot, with Stevie feeding back balls every 5 or 6 putts. He'll also start by using his right hand always for about 25 shots, and then uses both hands.

After that, he proceeds to the range. I found this out last December at his tournament at Lake Sherwood. We had been at the range for some time, but decided to leave as the crowd grew too large waiting for Tiger. As we walked to the first hole, my friend described the above practice routine from an article he had read. As we approached the putting range (which is between the range and the first hole), we looked up and - surprise - we saw Tiger and caddie on the green. No one else was there, as they were waiting at the range. So, we watched Tiger do his entire 100 ball routine, which he did just as described in the article.
