The 2012 golf season has been one of redemption for Tiger Woods.
After two complete years in the golf abyss, Woods is once again one of the key players on the PGA Tour. He has won three tournaments this season and has put himself in a position to win the FedEx Cup Playoffs and will be a prominent member of the U.S. Team in the upcoming Ryder Cup.
So the 2012 season is far from over and it will be up to someone to beat Woods in the FedEx Cup and then in the big international competition.
It may happen. But it will take a great golfer's best effort to do it. Woods is No. 2 on the money list, No.2 on the FedEx Cup Points Standings and No. 2 in the World Golf Rankings. Rory McIlroy leads in all of these categories.
What's great for the game of golf is that while anyone can look objectively at the stats and come to the conclusion that Woods is once again one of the best golfers in the game, it's not good enough for him.
He wants to be the best, so he's going to continue to work at all aspects of his game so he can reclaim his No. 1 title and start picking off major championships once again.
