I know a lot of you keep up with it, who's leading anyway?
Tiger...3rd round just started. Leader board at pga.com
I don't think this is true. Tiger is supposed to be washed up now. What is he #2 on the world? What a scrub.
the fog won yesterday.
That's what I was thinking. Shocking!
Not to mention he's 2 under through 4 so far today.
I'm confused.... why not just go to PGATour.com instead of asking in a post here?
Cook is fapping...
The intent of the post was not to enquire but rather to point out that Tiger was leading. But what if failed to be mentioned is most of the Europeans are not there along with some of the better Americans. Still the same even I will say tiger is playing great right now.
Fair point, that many elite players from Europe and elsewhere are sitting this one out. I'd also add that he's poised to win on a golf course that, while difficult and featuring tough conditions, is one that he's feasted on over the years. It very much fits his eye/game, particularly this version of Tiger that relies almost exclusively on the big fade with the driver.
Last year Tiger won 3 events leading to the inevitable, "He's back" talk. He won at Bay Hill, Memorial and Congressional...all courses that he's loved over the years which got pointed out by those that said he wasn't "back". So I'm sure that if he closes it out today, it'll be said that he's both back and not back.....
Frankly, you have to define "back". If by back you mean Tiger circa 2000, that's never happening again. Not by Tiger and not by anyone else, at least not anytime soon. If by back you mean that Tiger is again a legitimate threat to win any tournament and any major that he'd competing in then yes, I'd say he's back.
That doesn't mean he's going to win a bunch of tournaments or even a single major this year.
But he's an elite player once again, albeit one that isn't nearly as dominant as he once was and one that still has flaws in his game that surface from time to time.
But if you can't see that he's playing much better, with much more control over his game and with a much higher level of confidence that at anytime since his fall from grace you're either not paying attention or just simply can't stand the guy and want him to fail, which I get.
I think the biggest thing between Tiger now and Tiger at his best is that now, he's just another really good player. Really good players, elite players still have to play well and be on their games to win, especially majors. Tiger at his best could take his "B" game and grind it out and win a major. He can't do that anymore and neither can anyone else. He'll have to play well, very well, to win a major or a significant tour event with a stacked field.
Tiger is back
You are so desperate for Tiger to be back.
