Tiger Roaring Back

Look, I’m not calling my shot. I’m not Babe Ruth. But I am saying that you better circle the dates April 8 – 14 in Augusta, GA for The Masters. Yes, I know the Super Bowl is this week but there will be plenty of time to get to that.

Tiger Woods is in San Diego and he is up 6 strokes with 11 holes left to play in the fog delayed Farmers Insurance Open in Torrey Pines. He played a total of 25 holes on Sunday and before play had suspended for the night, he had tripled his lead.

Now Tiger Woods winning at Torrey Pines is about as normal you and me breathing air but for the few of us that think Woods still has a shot at Jack Nicklaus’ major winning record of 18 majors, there is not a better time to get back on track than in Augusta, GA in April.

I’ve never been the hater on Tiger Woods that many are. I am all about the golf and while he may never return to the dominant golfer he once was,  he doesn’t have to be to win 4 more majors.

I’ll be returning to Augusta again in a couple of months and while it’s clear that I am in the group of folks that want to see Tiger Woods get back to the top of golf, all I want him to do is be ready to put together four solid rounds at The Masters and see what happens.
