Ever since that fateful night when Tiger Woods’ wife Elin went HAM upside his head (and his car window), he’s been on a losing streak. Not only did many of his endorsement deals dry up and the steady stream of mistresses completely damage his wholesome image, but his game–his innate ability to work a golf course–was wrecked.
For two years Tiger has entered, played, and come up empty handed in 26 tournaments, leaving many to wonder if he’d fallen off for good. But on Sunday, Tiger sunk two birdies in a row to claim his first victory since his life spiraled out of control.
After the win, Woods told the press he was happy to finally breakthrough.
“It feels great,” he said. “It’s kind of hard for me to elaborate beyond that.”
Although Tiger’s win at the Chevron World Challenge isn’t exactly the Masters, it does give the embattled golfer a little wind in his sails going forward. And it’s a win, something Tiger hasn’t had in a very long time.
After the game, Tiger said:
“They all feel good, you know. They’re not easy. People don’t realize how hard it is to win golf tournaments. I’ve gone on streaks where I’ve won golf tournaments in a row, but still, each one, I don’t think I’ve taken it for granted.
“And I know,” Woods continued, “because of how hard it is.”
Does this win mean Tiger is finally back?
