After all of his personal troubles; the divorce, the affairs, the scandal, the lost endorsements, Tiger Woods is back where he belongs - the winners circle.
On Sunday, Tiger Woods did wnat he hasn't been able to do in nearly two years, he came from behind to win on Sunday in a PGA Tour event. Down by one stroke with two to play Tiger sunk two birdies to clinch the win at The Chevron World Challenge. "Joy, satisfaction or relief" were the words that Woods used to describe his feelings after the victory.
For several years Tiger Woods was the world's number one player and possibly this is a first step for him to return to that perch. For the sake of the sport, we hope so. Say what you will about his personal life, Tiger Woods has been an incredible boost to the sport of golf and has introduced the game to millions of people young and old who otherwise would have never been interested. During his two year absence from the winners circle the PGA has seen the popularity of the sport decline and many have said that the perennial frontrunners (Phil Mickelson, Ernie, Els, etc.) failed to step up during Tiger's drought. Maybe now that Tiger seems to be rounding back into winners form the other veterans and newcomers will step up their game and bring the exciting level of competition that we saw during Tiger's heyday.
