His downturn in 2014 was clearly health related and culminated in back surgery, a precarious situation for anyone, let alone an athlete competing against the best in the world.

Whether you love him or hate him, his saga has been fascinating to watch, even if these days the fascination is more akin to being unable to avert your eyes from a grisly accident.
all well and good, but as I asked you before……did he win a major ? Also, who was his caddie the last time he won a Major ?

Bottom line is this, when his career is done all his tournament wins will be totaled (yes a big number) but at the end of the day his judgment against 'Jack' will be the number of Majors.

I don't think that's germane to my point, which is that his return to the world #1 ranking in 2013 shows that he did recover from his personal scandal.

OK, I'll give you that. But time is definitely no longer on his side if he is to catch and pass Jack ………….but then again Jack won his last major in his mid forties I believe so you never know !

Tiger Woods ‘delusional’ to believe he’s close to regaining world-class form

Delusional? He's only 10-12 shots, or so, off the pace after two rounds. As one report I read stated, "Jeeves, gas up the jet and get 'er warmed up. We're going home (after two embarrassing rounds)." Too bad. He was really good while it lasted.

As of now, Tiger is 16 shots off the lead. He's played 8 holes of his second round and is tied for 140 in a field of 155 golfers. He's in deep do-do.

He needs to go back to his old ways of boning every woman / whore he can lay his hands on in every city he visits to play golf.

Can wait for the movie

It was great to see Tiger put together 3 solid rounds in the 60's this weekend. It's encouraging that he may finally get his new swing and his head on the same page.
