It's been a long time coming for Tiger Woods. After two-and-a-half wayward years, the biggest name in golf finally found his way back to the top of the leader board in a PGA Tour event, winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill on Sunday at 13 under par.
Woods was able to hold off Graeme McDowell, Ernie Els and Ian Poulter with a two-under 70 on the final day to secure his 72nd career PGA win, his first since the 2009 BMW Invitational.
The road back to respectability has been filled with potholes and obstacles of all sorts for Woods, from marital woes to injuries and everything in between. Many will say (Tiger included) that there's still plenty of work to be done, particularly with the 2012 Masters fast approaching on the calendar.
As the powers-that-be in the world of golf celebrate Tiger's return to the winner's circle, let's have a look back at where he's been, with an eye turned firmly to the future.
