Tiger, Tiger Woods y’all!
Tiger Woods Wins First Golf Tournament Since 2009
Tiger Woods hit so many great shots that he couldn’t single one out as the best. Winning was as sweet as ever, even after a PGA Tour drought that stretched over 923 days and 27 tournaments.
The best part about posing with the trophy at Bay Hill?
The conversation was back on golf, his favorite subject.
Just two weeks ago, Woods gingerly climbed into a golf cart and was taken off the golf course at Doral with soreness and swelling in his left Achilles tendon, the same injury that caused him to miss three months and two majors last year.
On Sunday, no one questioned his health. Woods marched to a five-shot victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational that restored his confidence and gave him momentum going into the Masters two weeks away.
“This was coming,” Woods said. “I’ve been close a number of times, basically since Australia. Just had to stay the course.”
…He won for the 72nd time on the PGA Tour – one short of Jack Nicklaus in second place on the career list – and 84th time worldwide. It was the 16th time he won by at least five shots, and his seventh win at Bay Hill tied the PGA Tour for most wins on a single golf course. Woods owns both marks. He also has won seven times at Firestone.
Wonder what changed? Did Tiger get his hoes back??? Play on playa, now KEEP IT UP!
