Tiger Strikes Again

I really enjoyed a lazy sports Sunday yesterday and watched Tiger play 18 holes lurking up on Sean O'Hair. O'Hair held a 5 stroke lead to start play on Sunday but you could tell from the first tee that O'Hair could not ignore Tiger lurking and slowly inching up toward him. Woods finally caught O'Hair with a 26 foot birdie putt on the 15th but Tiger let O'Hair right back in it. It came down to the 18th, the type of drama the the PGA tour was salivating over and the situations that Tiger Woods dreams about. O'Hair missed his birdie opportunity on the 18th which left Tiger with a 16 footer on the 18th for the outright lead. With the sun setting on Bay Hill Tiger did what Tiger does, sank the putt and captured his sixth victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Nice post Adam, Tiger is back! I was at the 2000 AT&T Pebble Beach Tournament, so I knew that Tiger had come back from 5 strokes behind before, but I did not expect him to do what he did on Sunday. I think people might enjoy this list, since Tiger and Arnold Palmer are both on it. I'm not sure if Byron Nelson’s record of 18 single season wins will ever be broken.
