Tiger's on the Prowl
Tiger Woods is back ladies and gentlemen. After taking almost an entire year off of golf after knee surgery, Tiger hit the links again today and he certainly did not disappoint. Now Tiger had played in two tournaments before and had less then stellar showings, but after todays play it sure looks like Tiger is almost back to his pre-injury dominance of the game.
Tiger rallied back from five shots behind leader Scott O'Hair for a stunning victory on the eighteenth green. After O'Hair suffered from a bogey on hole 16 which gave Tiger a chance. Tiger took advantage with one of his vintage comebacks, sinking a 25-foot putt on the 18th hole for the victory. It was great getting to see that patent fist pump, that huge grin, and knowing that the legend is back. Golf at times seemed lost without Tiger, but now that he is back, buckle up, its sure to be a ride.
"Just like last year, when Woods made a 25-foot birdie on the final hole at Bay Hill to win by one, he crouched and backpedaled as the putt rolled toward the cup. But instead of slamming his cap to the ground, he gave a roundhouse fist pump and ran into the arms of caddie Steve Williams, who lifted him off the ground in celebration.
Welcome back, Tiger."
