Posted on 03/25/2012 5:17:44 PM PDT by Doe Eyes
Tiger Woods finally brought the buzz back to the very thing that made him famous - winning.
Two weeks after another injury scare, and two days before his former coach's book goes on sale, Woods looked dominant as ever in that red shirt on Sunday to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
It was his first PGA Tour victory since a sex scandal at the end of 2009 led to one of the greatest downfalls in sports. And with the Masters only two weeks away, Woods looks more capable of ever than resuming his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus in the majors.

Reminds me of the guy who said he had a chick every night. What he didn't say was that he asked 50 chicks before one said yes.
And Winning????....Sorry...that quip belongs to Charlie!!
Arnie once said that he thought Tiger would match Jack AND him in majors....
Let’s see, no Phil, no Rory....BFD.
Somewhere, Frantzie is cussing and spitting
Phil Mickelson tied for 24th.
...reminds me of when I was in college. There must have been 20 women banging on my door. I finally had to get up and let them out.
usually you are accurate and a good read...it is a BFD
putting lessons ?
Good. Golf needs Woods. If you’re a fan of golf, regardless of what you think of him, you know that’s true.
The last time I golfed I only hit two good balls all day...and THAT was when I stepped on a rake in the sand trap!
stick a mic on him at a driving range and allow the tapin for teachin as opposed to prep for a tournament and that tape could sell millions....as far as golf and to be honest, many things, Tiger is brilliant.
Be honest John. Do you play the game? Are you a fan? Do you watch it on TV? Did he ever cheat at the game of golf?
Arnie had 7 and Jack 18, so Tiger needs 11 more to match their combined total.
Oddly, this three-year fallow period may actually help his overall major total. He's had to rework both his personal life and his golf game, and the end result may be beneficial. He is only 36, and with the physical conditioning he habitually pursues he probably still has ten or so years left as a consistent contender, with another five or ten after that occasionally contending.
As he gets closer, that would be a cool thing to watch. He needs to beat Jack first.
I was unaware Tiger had cheated at Golf????
You compared him to Pete Rose....
If cheating on your spouse disqualifies players.....let’s just say the pro ranks would be considerably smaller and almost non existent in some leagues
Actually, by another measure Tiger is really only three majors behind Jack. If you count US Amateurs (Jack won two but Tiger won three), which were majors in Bobby Jones' day, then it's Jack 20-Tiger 17, only three apart.
I am a very lucky golfer in that I have a Nike collectors tin of the 2001 Masters which Tiger won completin the Majors Grand Slam.... 4 sleeves of balls and script, pics and scores per day
