Tiger won today following a rain drenched Sunday with 62 MPH winds and fish swimming on the fairways.
I am so hero oriented and that just smacks of sheep herding; but how I could be drawn into a sport where man conquers nature because he was appointed by God Almighty to do so is beyond me.
But this Black Thai (how often might we describe someone in this manner?) had been breaking every record in the book until 2010 when he was relegated to the plus fifty level of greatness, just regained Number One status on the PGA Tour and in the world rankings.
It was a marvel to watch this Monday finish of the repub game (next to NASCAR) of course.
Tiger begins Sunday with a two stroke lead.
Just before the deluge he is three strokes ahead with sixteen holes to play.
Poor Mark Fowler is teamed with him at 10:00 tee time on Monday and matches the master stroke for stroke until the 16th when the poor kid ends up in the water twice!
Justin Rose, in the group just a hole ahead of Tiger was once the leader by five strokes in this tournament that went from Thursday to Monday.
Poor Justin had fallen apart on Saturday but never could quite regain his momentum on Monday; even though he ended up Number Two by day's end.
All the sites will tell you this:
Tiger has tied Slammin Sam Snead as far as winning the same tournament 8 times.
Tiger has an edge since he duplicated this feat at another golf course but was not given credit because one of those wins was only an American Major. hahahaha
Tiger is now rated number One by every conceivable rating agency.
Tiger is Numero Uno in the Fed Cup Standings.
But I tell ya, just watching this guy putt this week was incredible.
And when pundits say that Tiger is bad at coming from behind; BULLSHITE.
He was behind every day until Saturday.
He sunk so many 20' shots that I went nuts just watching him.
It is fun, I guess emotionally, to see a minority (and that certainly categorizes him in the PGA Tour) just kill his 100% white competition.
You cannot make this stuff up.
17 years (well 18 because I began watching him as an amateur by a mistake in channel surfing in 1995) I have been watching this guy.
I just viewed him talking about his first golf experience at 9 months.
I had fun this week end watching Tiger and it makes me happy.
