THOUSAND OAKS, California - Two years after his life and career came crashing down, Tiger Woods is a winner again.
One shot behind with two holes to play, Woods finally looked like the player who dominated golf for so much of his career. He birdied his last two holes Sunday, making a 6-foot putt on the 18th, to win the Chevron World Challenge by one shot over former Masters champion Zach Johnson.

Tiger? Tiger who?
Oh, the guy whose time came and went.
Do Hussein’s handlers want another tigerphoto op?
Does anyone actually give a putrid, smelly Obama about Woods anymore?
[Oh, the guy whose time came and went.]
Tiger is the Newt Gingrich of golf. Personal problems can tarnish their talent but cannot immobilize it.
" . . . has shown what America has seen with this crap that culminated in 2008-white-guilt-election of a phony token black."
How about we separate the two? Woods has 83 wins in his career; 0bama has 2.
I'll give no comment on Tigers's ethnicity but you are not accurate.
I don’t quite get the animosity. I for one would like to see him turn his life back around. People make mistakes in life. His are just more public than most. If he can learn a key life lesson and get back on the horse, who am I to wish otherwise? His sins are no worse than mine or anyone else’s.
Half-breed? Seriously? Do your knuckles drag on the ground?
He is half Thai, not Phillipino.
Tiger is as “yesterday” as the NBA...who cares
I watched the whole round. Woods made several poor shots in the middle. He was putting pretty well, but the putts were not going in.
The field seemed kind of weak for top-50 the rankings they have. Kuchar, Casey, Mahan and Choi could have attacked and posted a low number early, but did not. The very top-ranked players were busy playing in South Africa.
Still, he made two great approaches and putts on 17 and 18. But he really shouldn’t have had to.
1. He was hitting his irons to exact yardage almost always.
2. Fredie making him a Captain's pick had something to do with this. Up until then, he was trying to make his comeback alone and by playing just for himself. But on the President's Cup Team he had the pressure of performing for others; the team and Fred. I think that fueled something.
3. On Saturday he was short sided on 14 in some long grass and hit a full swing flop shot that went about 20 feet in the air and carried just 15. That was a glimpse of confidence coming back.
4. There was a big screen by the stands at the 18th green. The broadcast yesterday showed the crowd watching the screen when Tiger made the birdie putt at 17 to tie Zach. The crowd erupted, especially the young women. That(their support for him) seems odd to me on view of what he did to his wife and family.
I'm not as supportive of him as I once was, but I can't help but watch when he tees it up.
The animosity comes from getting something shoved down our collective throats.
The guy manages to beat a sparse field of invited golfers in what amounts to a glorified golf outing in La-la Land and we’re supposed to think that it’s earth-shaking news.
Okay; he's a half-breed, like The Messiah. My bad.
You’ve surely nailed the “progressive” liberal cowards who infest the sports media, falling all over each other in their double- standard when it comes to the “athletes of color”.
That's your opinion. I'm a bit old fasioned, I guess.
He was using a good putting technique, and hit the putts on the line and distance he intended. However, he couldn’t figure out the exact line and speed he needed, because the greens were fast, tricky, and half-covered with shadows at this time of year.
Could care less or couldn't care less?
I don't care if he wins 100% of the tournaments played; just another black who married a blonde white woman when he could afford it, as arm candy. And, the media replays a meaningless putt a dozen times, because their GOD made it.....
There was a time when I felt that way, more or less. After Tiger won his first Masters, the adulation became offensive; particularly when he was only playing so-so golf. Then around 2000, he went on a tear and won all the majors plus a load of other tournaments.
There would be something to what you say if Tiger had been mediocre his entire career; but he hasn't. After his performance in the final round of the President's Cup, and this win, Tiger looks to be on the way back to a level of excellence. Eat your heart out.
If you hit a 50 foot putt, and it stops inches from the cup, you are putting pretty well. If you miss by a foot, and run ten feet past the cup, then you are not putting well.
Quite a few of his misses left tap-ins, which do save strokes over the course of a round.
but I believe that inter-species mating is not what God intended, and shows human weakness and lack of values.
I’m having trouble posting this because I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Laughing is winning at this point. OK. I lied. I’ve been laughing since reading your first post on this thread.
Do you seriously believe that Thais and African Americans are different species?
Love the irony of you asking if someone else was indoctrinated in a publik skool (your spelling) when you demonstrate your complete ignorance re: species.
Hilarious and unbelievable.
Even if Tiger regains his old form, the rest of the tour has caught up to him.
Eat my heart out?
I could care less what he does, as I'm not into envy, awe, or being excited about any athletic accomplishment at all. The fawning and drooling of "fans" and the State-Run-Media over some certain Ethnic stars is indicative of the problems in values and prioritization of life's meaning, IMHO.
Could care less or couldn't care less?
I feel very strongly BOTH ways...LOL
Without cross-breeding of grasses, we wouldn't have the beautiful fairways and greens on the golf courses.
Combining disparate genetic information produces hybrid vigor, where the issue is superior in trait to the two separate components.
Of course, using your train of thought, a case could be made that Tiger's hybrid vigor is perfectly suited to the hybrid grasses on which he plays, making it particularly unfair to the inbred lads of Ireland who tend to excel on the unfettered coast link courses.
This is true, particularly amongst the players in their mid-twenties.
Yes, I made reference to that in my first post.
Tiger now has 72 PGA wins, only one back of Nicklaus's 73 and again gaining on Sam Snead's record of 82.
So, not earth-shaking, but for devotees of golf, a significant move forward, especially nearing Jack.
What was more incredible was Tiger's use of Mickelson's flop shots around the green. That's something you'd never see with Steve Williams on his bag, for sure.
No, not necessarily. I just wanted to vividly point out to you that the opposite of cross-breeding is inbreeding.
Have a nice day
I shall, thank you very much. U2
“So, not earth-shaking, but for devotees of golf, a significant move forward, especially nearing Jack.”
In an informal gathering one day about ten years ago, Arnold Palmer said that he thought that Tiger would eventually win more than he and Jack combined. He rolled his drink between his hands and said “you know what’s wrong with his game?”
One of the guys said, “nope. What?”
He looked up and said, “absolutely nothing.”
Cross breeding of humans??????????
And you speak for God!?!?!?!
Wow. So I guess your knuckles *do* drag on the ground. Apparently nobody has pointed out to you that different races are ~not~ different species. I hate to be the one to tell you, but you and Tiger are exactly the same species.
To each his own, but my freedom of association is not your business, nor the governments, in a FREE country.
Quite so, yet somehow Tiger's freedom of association *is* your business. Which is it? To each his own? Free? or not?
For a guy who "could care less about sports", you're certainly making a big whoop de doo out of "nothing" on this thread.......
FRANTZIE used to make the same claim as well as not watching television at all but yet he seemed to know everything that was happening during every PGA tournament......LOL!
I wonder if they're roommates?
I doubt that genetic mutilation/cross-breeding of humans was God’s intent
And your view about God’s intent in this context comes from what chapter and verse from what book?
Are you using the word ‘breed’ the way the word ‘race’ is popularly used?
But I could be reading you wrong. So help me out with some understanding in specific terms.
Thai person procreating with Thai person is fine ... no genetic mutilation or crossbreeding. Do I have that right?
Thai person procreating with African American is genetic mutilation/crossbreeding. Yes? No?
Black person procreating with Caucasion person. I’ll leave you to answer ... genetic mutilation? Yes? No?
"Inter-species mating"????? Care to clarify that statement in the text of what this thread is all about or was that a typo and you meant to write "inter-racial"?
They focus on Tiger because TV ratings of tournies he’s in are double the ones he’s not. The numbers make it clear what the TV audience wants to see. And if you’re in the TV business and there’s a guy out there that doubles your ratings he IS god. It ain’t political correctness, it’s revenue.
Cross breading? Multilation? Really? Really? So I gather you think that humans other than those purely white and Aryan European people are something other than human? That might come as a big surprise to Jesus since his mother was a Jew. : 0
I bet you were a big ball of laughs and some good clean fun on Crystal Naught.: (
BTW I used to be a big Tiger Woods fan but his behavior and marital infidelity made me not so much so. But that had nothing to do with his race or the race of his parents. I still think hes one of the great golfers of all time. A nice person, not so much but again, that has nothing to do with his race or that of his parents.
Traditional1 has gone from using species now to breed.
He’s getting closer.
Easy to understand why he’d prefer not to get pinned down into specific language that would lay bare his “issue”.
