‘Retro’ Tiger is on the Scene

 

‘Retro’ Tiger is on the Scene

 

You want to call it ‘vintage’ instead of ‘retro’? Not a problem. Either way you look at it, Tiger Woods proved this weekend that he is most definitely not fading into that goodnight.

 

Just watching him play on Saturday was like jumping into the time machine and traveling back to a place when Tiger Woods could literally not be beaten. He was so far ahead of everyone else when Saturday came to an end that he honestly would have had to screw up REALLY bad in order to win this one!

 

The day before the clocks went forward, Tiger caught up with all the action on the PGA Tour leader board. For the third Tigerstraight round on the “Trump Doral Blue Monster,” he played like it was 2000 all over again. After an impressive Saturday came to an end, Woods’ two-shot lead at the WGC-Cadillac Championship turned to four shots.

 

The reporters asked him if he felt his game was as good as it was in the ‘glory’ years. “I don’t want it to be as good,” he said. “That was never the intent.”

It wasn’t hard to be better than he ever was. In fact, Tiger could do nothing but watch his shots track toward the hole, hear the volume around Doral’s 18th green, and see him walk after it and give a fist pump after the ball disappeared to the sound of wild cheering.

 

Yet the birdie he converted on the Blue Monster’s 18th hole, offered the perfect example of what has come to be expected: a 309-yard drive, a 9-iron to 16 feet, and the perfect putt for a 67.

 

All the numbers point toward a 76th PGA Tour victory and 17th World Golf Championship title. Woods is 39-of-41 on the PGA Tour, and has never lost a tournament when taking more than a two-shot advantage into the final round. Woods’ diving has been good, but it’s his iron play that has really impressed each and everyone.

 

Tiger Woods was a 5-to-1favorite to win next month’s Masters. But after his performance this past weekend, the odds have even leaned more in his favor. Tiger is now 4-to-1, despite his final round at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. One year after Tiger hobbled off the Blue Monster, he picked up the pace in his march to the Masters. Woods delivered two quick birdies to take the drama out of Doral, and two late bogeys only made his victory in the Cadillac Championship even more sure. Tiger had full control of his game and never let anyone get closer than three shots until he had locked up his 17th World Golf Championship title.

 

“That’s how I know I can play,” Woods said. “That’s the thing. To be able to bring it out a couple times so far this year.”

 

Woods now has five wins in the last year, the most of anyone in the world, and he can return to No. 1 with a win at Bay Hill in two weeks. He won by two shots over Steve Stricker, who might want to claim a share of this trophy. Woods made 27 birdies this week, one short of his personal best on the PGA Tour, and he took the fewest putts over 72 holes in any tour event.

 

The Masters is a month away, and Woods is sure to be the favorite for the fans when it comes to racing and winning the event.

 

Tiger said that, “Majors and World Golf Championships are the best because you know you are playing against the best players out there. That’s what makes wins like this special. That’s why I love to compete.”

 

Woods collected another WGC title, another seven-figure check, and offer yet another reminder that he is closer to the real world.

 

As time goes by, it will be more than interesting to see the ‘Tiger’ come from winning the prizes that will offer this infamous and famous golfer a chance to get their names engraved as the ‘best of the best’ in all areas of life.

 

It will be extremely interesting to see ‘retro’ Tiger appear in the Masters and win the ‘big day’!
