For what seems like the 20th time since his career collapsed in 2009, Tiger Woods is back!He shot a 62 in the final round of the Honda Classic yesterday, finishing second behind new world No. 1 Rory McIlroy.
It was his best round since 2009, and afterward the message was clear: TIGER IS BACK.
“To me, it was the old Tiger back,” player partner Ernie Els told ESPN. “The guy I finished second to all the time. It was him being him again. I don’t think he missed a shot all day.”
Tiger’s caddie was even more specific about how Tiger is back, telling ESPN, “It was awesome. It was fun. He hit every shot exactly the way he wanted to hit it — little hooks, little fades, anything he wanted.”
Even Tiger admits that Tiger is (almost) back, “I started putting the pieces together. Everything is coming. I just need to keep progressing. It’s going to turn. Each tournament it’s getting better. It’s just a matter of time before I put it all together.”
Tiger. Is. Back.
But is he finally here to stay?
