Today’s final round at the Valspar Championship had Tiger Woods in the hunt for the first time in forever. Tiger was down by two with two holes to play and you knew it was time for him to break out, but you weren’t sure if he still had it. Then on 17, he made that insane 40-foot putt.
As it went to the final hole it reminded of the time back when I loved watching golf. Tiger has always stolen the show because he is a closer. Today felt like the good old days before he went crazy. Alas, on the 18th he missed the closing birdie putt and finished second.
I think it’s good for golf that he is back and good for the fans. It brings back the excitement that I’ve not felt from any other player.
