Tim Tebow and Tiger Woods? Report says pairing could happen at Pebble Beach. But what about Katy Perry?

Everyone, it seems, is trying to match Tim Tebow up with someone.

The Pebble Beach National Pro-Am reportedly would like him to pair him with Tiger Woods the weekend after the Super Bowl. The parents of singer Katy Perry reportedly would like to pair him with their daughter, who’s split from Russell Brand.

First, the golf. A Tebow-Tiger twosome would be one of the following: 1) great fun to watch; 2) an interesting opportunity to see whose biceps are bigger; 3) the most yin and yang sports duo since Agassi and Streisand; 3) the most ridiculously hyped event of modern times; 4) proof that the Mayans were right about 2012.

So far, Woods is a go. He confirmed Monday that he’ll make his 2012 debut in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and initial reports had paired him with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

However, a tournament source confirmed to Brian Hewitt of GlobalGolfPost that officials are considering whether to extend an invitation to the Denver Broncos quarterback. If Tebow were to accept, he and Woods would be paired, assuming both parties agree to it. (Poor Romo.) At the moment, Tebow’s a little preoccupied with his Saturday night date with the New England Patriots in an AFC divisional playoff game.

Talk about worlds colliding. This has to happen. And if it does, it’ll probably come down to the final putt on the 18th green. With these two guys, how could it not?

Now for Katy Perry. A source tells OK magazine (via ABC News, that she has “mentioned on more than one occasion how much she likes Tim. ... He’s handsome, charming, intelligent and above all, a good Christian.” Perry’s parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, are evangelical ministers and Perry was a Christian pop star before she was a pop star.

Maybe, if it doesn’t work out with Tebow, she could date Tiger.

Elsewhere, today in Tebow:

•Not that Tom Brady asked them or is evil or that they’re casting any aspersions on Tebow’s beliefs, but Salem, Mass., witches will put a positive hex on the Patriots at noon today.

•ESPN’s Adam Schefter sees the numbers “3, 1, 6” everywhere.
