Something happened to Tiger Woods when he was caught by his wife over three years ago. He lost his swing, his swag and many of his endorsements. It seemed that he was on the brink of retirement, since his life seemed to be falling apart in front of everyone. But the sun is shining again on the career of Tiger Woods with a big win this week at the Players Championship.
Fighting to the wire against Sergio Garcia, Woods pushed his way over the top. This was his fourth win at this tournament since 2001, and his fourth win this year. Tiger might actually be roaring again.
Tiger Woods might not ever admit it, but it hadto add just a little more delight to winning that he left Sergio Garcia swimming with the fishes en route to his second Players Championship Sunday at TPC Sawgrass.
Woods held together his round in the most heated moments, making birdie on No. 16 from the sand and parring what many times in this tournament has been the decision-closing holes — the island green No. 17 and the challenging finishing 18 with water running up the entire left side of the fairway.
At 13-under for the week, Woods took his fourth championship of the year and served further notice that he is the preeminent golfer in the world. David Lingmerth closed with a 72 and finished two shots behind along with Kevin Streelman and Jeff Maggert.
“Am I surprised?” Woods asked of his status atop the game. “No. I know a lot of people in this (interview) room thought I was done. But I’m not.”
