Tiger Woods is back to his winning ways. In traditional Tiger fashion, he started the last round 5 shots down, but managed to claw his way to his 6th victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Sean O’Hair was this year’s victim, he led the final round going into Sunday, but failed under pressure and finished 2nd at 4 under.
It’s been more than 9 months since Tiger’s last victory, the U.S. Open in 2008, and it could not have come at a better time. Less than two weeks away from the Masters, Tiger and his reconstructed knee are primed to make another run at the green jacket in Augusta.
Should other players be afraid? As usual, yes. Tiger has a new knee and he’s proved that it’ll hold up. Golf analysts often ask before the Masters, are you taking Tiger or the field? This year and for years to come, Tiger will be my choice until another player consistently challenges him.
