Tiger Woods: 4 Lessons We Learned at the Accenture Match Play Championship

Tiger Woods is still trying to figure it out.

His return to a regular schedule on the PGA Tour in 2012 has only included two stops thus far—at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.

And while we're witnessing improvement in his game off the tee, from the fairway and even around the greens, Tiger's play on the putting surface, for the most part, has been a far cry from the clutch performances we're used to seeing.

I guess you could say he's so close, yet so far away from the dominant player he once was.

During the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship this past week, Tiger squeaked past Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano in the opening round at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, Dove Mountain. But he missed a number of relatively short putts down the stretch in making an early exit after the second round against Nick Watney.

It made for a short work week for one of the greatest golfers of all time as he continues to rebound from two years of personal problems, swing changes and injuries.

Here are four lessons we learned after watching Tiger Woods at the 2012 WGA-Accenture Match Play Championship.
