Tiger is Back!
“I’m now ready to play again.” Thats a statement from his own website, tigerwoods.com. Finally we get to see the world number one, back in his rightful place, at number one. Tiger had made up such an advantage in the World Golf Ranking that even with his eight month break after having surgery on the ACL in his left knee, last June, he currently still sits at number one.
His comeback might not have been as “tigeresque” as we have seen do before, but it was sweet knowing he was back. In his first tournament back Tiger played the Accenture Match Play Championship and lost in the second round to Tim Clark (4 and 2). Most people didn’t expect Tiger to come back in this tournament, but for either The Masters at Augusta or the WGC-CA Championship at Doral. I think the case here is that Accenture is a nice warm up for the next few tournaments… and being a sponsor of Tiger’s helps too. Either way Tiger should be in game shape for the Championship in Doral, a course he has dominated over his career (like many others) winning there 6 times.
I say good luck Tiger!
And to commemorate a healthy Tigers return, lets have a look at some of the fantastic things the man has already shown us can be accomplished on a golf course.
