Tiger Woods Is Still Pretty Good
Leading by three strokes with five holes to play is a good position for a challenger to be in when it comes to PGA match play… unless of course, your opponent is Eldrick Woods. Just ask JB Holmes (UK grad, thank you).
So what did Tiger do? Three straight birdies and one 35-foot eagle putt… a standard finish for most golfers, no?
While a WGC-Accenture victory is far from secure (there are more rounds to be, well, golfed), Tiger’s late charge shows you pretty much have to take his heart out of his chest in order to be sure he won’t pose a challenge.
Good luck with all that.
Bonus: It was the first time Tiger has comeback from a three-stroke deficit to win a match-play round. You know, it’s kind of sad Tiger’s excellence has become almost commonplace. We expect these types of performances in a sport where just one tournament win used to mean you’ve had a decently successful PGA season.
