Tiger Woods is back.

Woods, the No. one ranked golf player in the world, seems to have regained his groove and swing at the Ryder Cup this past weekend.

He beat European representative Francesco Molinari, who was up by two through the first three holes. 

Well, it's either that Tiger was lucky or he proved again to the world what he is capable of doing on the course.

We can guess it wasn't just luck this time which lead to Woods' fourth win in Ryder Cup singles. The stats prove it: Woods birdied seven holes, and also eagled once for the rest of the 15 holes. You can't do all of that with just luck. Tiger used the skills we always knew he had.

But at the start of the Ryder Cup, many questioned United States captain Corey Pavin's selection of an inconsistent Tiger Woods.

The experienced Pavin proved us wrong.

The U.S. Ryder Cup team might have lost the cup this year to Europe, but with Tiger's performance, it certainly is good news for the Professional Golf Association, and also, for Tiger himself.

He stated, "I played well today. It was nice to turn my match around like I did."

His opponent, Molinari, was content with the way he played; he just wasn't content with going against Tiger. He said, "I had a good start and I think I played all right. But if Tiger plays like that, there's not much you can do." 

PGA players, you aren't competing with an inconsistent Tiger and the rest of the players anymore—you're playing with the rest of the players and the Tiger.
