Tiger Woods and his new golf swing finally held up through Sunday to win at Bay Hill, his first PGA event in 2 1/2 years. Is this redemption? Will golf enthusiasts now cheer for him, and put aside his personal life debacle?
There were many people who thought Sean Foley was over-rated as a coach. Even though he has Justin Rose, Hunter Mahan, and many other top-ranked players; people have been watching closely to see if he can get Tiger winning again, and it happened today! His driving was impeccable! When Tiger hits the fairway off the tee, he is nearly impossible to beat.
With Tiger winning at Bay Hill it now makes the Masters a heckava lot more interesting. Tiger has done well there, and he knows the course inside-and-out. If I were a betting man, I’d put my money on Tiger.
As his caddie Joey LaCava said, “”He was a man on a mission today, he was pretty jacked up. He was out there to prove himself.”
You can’t help but really like Graeme McDowell. He did not bring his best today, but had this to say, “”I think he really just kind of nailed home his comeback. “Great to have a front-row seat watching maybe the greatest of all time doing what he does best — winning golf tournaments.”
How classy is that?
