He is no better than a club pro now with his broken down body. Now his body fits his mind. One of the most selfish people ever to walk the planet let alone play on tour. I am loving watching him get beat.

    Yup, Tiger is finally relevant again. No more breathless media reports of how he's "13 strokes back, but ANYTHING can happen!!!"

    Well, okay, that'll still happen... but it'll seem 30% less ridiculous now. Congrats to Tiger on the win.

    Should Woods be showing Molinari's "pine cone" on 15 some love?

    Tiger was 'back' last year, in the leading group on the last days of the last 3 majors, not just this one in Augusta. A close 2nd in the PGAC, and 3 shots off the win at the Open. Was just a matter of time that one of those runs stuck.

    frankly awesome to witness this today, even though it was a win made on the grind, not with boldness. Makes me nervous every time he holds a driver cause he sprays it more than most. Thankfully for the health of my heart he grabbed a 3 wood on 18.

    Yep, but prior to that, he wasn't even present for 10 of the past 19 Majors. And for the 9 he did show up for:

    Missed the cut five times
    32nd place
    17th place
    69th place
    40th place

    The media did indeed relentlessly overhype Tiger's chances during the long stretch where he really wasn't competitive in major tournaments. His win today is his first in 11 years in one.

    Which I think is great, both for him and the sport (though the sport really needs to start cultivating other stars, instead of relying on 43-year old Tiger).

    But the overemphasis on him when he clearly wasn't going well was annoying, and it went on for LONG time. Typical major coverage then:

    "WOW, there's a BIG battle brewing here among all the leaders. But first, let's check out what's going on with Tiger, in 37th place a mere 13 strokes back!"

    Sigh. At least now he's fully credible again.

    he won the 2018 tour championship against the best of the best!

    that's really when we knew he could do it again.

    Thankfully for the health of my heart he grabbed a 3 wood on 18.
    and brooks missed that putt on 18!

    Overcoming adversity is worthy of praise.

    Congrats Tiger.

    this is well written!

    ' the idea that he had to be “a different man” to win again on Sunday is cobblers, and exactly the sort that would appeal to the hardline PGA Republicans who are baptised in Disney World swimming pools. I do hope Tiger Woods keeps beating them, until they can no longer praise him even through gritted teeth.'

    I'd have to agree here. I don't follow golf, but I don't think he was/is clean.

    Are golfers tested? I wouldn't be surprised if the PGA turns a bigger blind eye than football or baseball.

    Evidently there's quite a bit of discussion around this topic.

    Loungy PSA

    PGA Tour shakes up drug testing policy for 2018 season
    Steve DiMeglio USA TODAY SportsPublished 3:05 PM EDT Jun 20, 2017


    Beginning in October when the 2017-18 season starts, the PGA Tour will begin blood testing as part of its revised anti-doping program.

    The Tour also is updating its list of banned substances to include those currently forbidden by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

    Further, any suspensions of players abusing any banned substance will be announced publicly for the first time.

    “We believe that these changes to our program are prudent in that they further our objectives of protecting the well-being of our members and better substantiate the integrity of golf as a clean sport,” Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a statement released Tuesday.

    I don't know if Tiger's juicing (though given his past character issues, I would not be shocked either way), but if he is, and gets caught doing so a la Armstrong, it will be the biggest media sh!tstorm in quite some time in sports.

    Absent any evidence of such, though, I think we have to give him the benefit of the doubt 'til proven otherwise.
