With his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, his third win in four starts in 2013, Tiger Woods officially became the No. 1 golfer in the world again, a distinction the best player of this—or any—generation has not held since October, 2010. To say Woods is back would be an understatement.
The road to get back for Woods has been as long and circuitous as any in the history of American sports.
Woods' fall from golfing grace began some 11 months prior to losing the top ranking in golf, when his Cadillac Escalade crashed into a tree on November 27, 2009, setting forth a chain of events both professionally and personally that no one could have seen coming.
Looking back through the last 1,200 days in the life and career of Woods will serve as a striking reminder of just how crazy—how surreal—this journey has been.
