Tiger Woods: Legendary Golfer Shows Classic Form at Right Time
At some point, Tiger Woods was going to return to form and dominate the field. The 2012 Arnold Palmer Invitational is the tournament, and it comes at the right time, ahead of the Masters.
April 5th looms as the date every golf fan had circled on their calendars. The best in golf will be among those who descend upon August for a magical weekend of championship golf.
The question remains however, will Tiger Woods will be among them? I don't mean the physical person that is Tiger Woods, as we have seen him plenty in the past couple of years.
What we haven't seen is the Tiger Woods who would actually impose fear in the field and dominate four straight rounds, making every last golfer step their game up to another level.
Well, he's back.
After two rounds of play at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, Tiger Woods is leading and he is sinking putts.
The latter was the elusive part of his game that nearly had him chucking clubs into the drink every weekend.
On Friday, Woods was different and more confident in his approach. He finished day one with a three-under (-par) 69 and was even better on day two.
He shot a seven-under(-par) 65, giving him 10 under for the tournament, and that's good for a one-shot lead over Jason Dufner and Graeme McDowell.
Is Tiger Woods back?
There is no question that the sport is far better with a great Woods playing than a mediocre one, and these two days should have fans giddy with anticipation for the final two rounds.
This is where we need to temper our expectations.
The legendary golfer has put all observers on a roller coaster ride that has us on the brink of nausea. He flirts with classic form only to bow out because of injury or mechanical error.
There is always that gut feeling that the next bad break will come, which is a far cry from the day we all expected the next great moment break through.
Well, I am done with all the cynicism, because even the bad plays were salvaged on Friday. The mishits were nowhere near disastrous, and the great ones were sublime.
With the Masters nearing, we have never had a better shot at seeing the good ol' Tiger at Augusta.
