If you asked me 3 years ago if I thought Tiger Woods would ever give me chills from being back on the course, I’d probably laugh in your face. I don’t think anyone could have predicted that. But yesterday at the Valspar Championship, Tiger did the impossible.
That was electric. Everyone there and watching at home had the thought in the back of their mind. Tiger Woods two off the lead on the green at 17 with a chance to Birdie. A 44-foot putt moving right to left. The shot predictor gave him a 3% chance to sink it. And he did just that. I thought there was no way. Growing up watching Tiger absolutely dominate the golf world, there was nothing better. Then there was the infamous fall-out with cheating, drugs and public shame. Two spinal fusion back surgeries. There was no way he could ever come back and do what he did. But once again, Tiger does what Tiger does. And he did that. This might be one of the most watched Masters of all time in April, with Phil Mickelson playing great, Tiger Woods flying up the FedEx Cup standings, and all the young talent searching for a shot at the green jacket, this could end up as one of the best Masters of all time and I can’t wait to see what goes down in Augusta.
