Tiger’s Incredible Eagle
Well. That was just… f**king brilliant for lack of a better term. Not only was Tiger’s eagle an incredible chip shot, it also made up for a bogey a few holes previous and took him to within one stroke of the lead. Oh, and it would be safe to say it put pressure on the rest of the field — roars for Tiger from the crowd have a way of doing that. As if his eagle didn’t provide enough flair, Woods birdied holes 17 and 18 to give him a one-stroke win over Jim Furyk.
I’m guessing all that talk about Tiger’s demise is over? Furyk, for one, hopes so:
“I just wish you all would just quit [ticking] him off … so he has to come back and keep proving stuff,” Furyk said. “I think he answered a lot of questions today.”
Oh, and look: Tiger’s rounding into form just in time for the US Open. Do we dare hope for a similar ending as last year’s Rocco Mediate/Tiger Woods duel?
