Woody Paige said near the beginning of the week on ESPN's show Around the Horn: "Tiger is just trying to rehab his knee. This is spring training for him." Paige now must be trying to reel his words back in.
Rehab his knee? Really Paige? I agree with Chicago Sun-Times writer, Jay Mariotti and Bill Plaschke on this one.
He is Tiger Woods! Of course he is going to try! He is the best golfer of all time.
Today's Arnold Palmer Invitational at Arnie's golf course, Bay Hill, was amazing. Woods, five strokes back at the start of today, toppled Sean O'Hair by shooting a lights out 67.
I was talking to my dad yesterday and I said, "Tiger is going to come out tomorrow and shoot something insane. I just feel it. I am feeling a 65-68 for Tiger." My dad doubted me and of course Tiger—being Tiger—came out and won.
This is Tiger's biggest comeback since the 2000 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am where he also came back from five down going into Sunday. He beat Matt Gogel and Vijay Singh to win the $720,000 purse.
If Tiger is not the best all-time or soon to be best all-time, I don't know who will be. Just like all previous 65 victories, expect many more to come.
