Tiger Woods Celebrates Tour Win Number 66
Tiger Woods career has been earmarked with come from behind victories or the huge leads which his counterparts fail to cut into. As a golfer, you need to be familiar enough with your surroundings and confident enough to make a run when there is an opening and to Sean O’Hair’s credit, he protected the four strokes lead as best he could.
The 15-foot putt on 18th to take his sixth Arnold Palmer Invitational trophy was nothing less than breathtaking. Sean O’Hare in his post game press conference gave credit to Tiger saying that he did not manage to play his best game on Sunday, in comparison to Tiger who came to play. Woods closed with a 67 for a 5-under total 275 and a one-shot victory over Sean O’Hair, who led Woods by five shots going into the final round, and matched his largest comeback ever on the PGA Tour. Meanwhile Tiger Woods in his post game press conference said that it felt good to be back in contention, feeling the rush. Woods said It’s had been a while and it felt great to be back.
Tiger Woods as a player has been documented for all his animated victory celebrations and so even after coming back from his knee surgery, he still had the energy for the fist pumps and other antics. After sinking the 25-foot birdie on the final hole at Bay Hill for a one-shot victory last year he slammed his cap to the ground, but this time Woods could be seen diving in the arms of his caddie Steve Williams who just lifted him off his feet.
After seeing Tiger play this week, there is no questions that there will be ciaos over at “Amen Corner” at Augusta in a few days. I do believe that his big break during the Bay Hill Tourney came at the 14th hole when he was one shot behind and caught yet another plugged lie under the lip of a bunker. Woods did well to blast out to just over 12 feet, while O’Hair had 15 feet for birdie. O’Hair narrowly missed, and Woods holed his putt for par. On the next hole, Woods made a 25-foot birdie putt to tie for the lead. Tiger credited his caddie saying that it felt they never left for a year. With this win Tiger has moves from 110th place in Fedex Cup Points to the 12th spot. Tiger will also celebrate hsi 66th Tour win. Kudos TW and welcome back.
