Normally, this is the time of the year golf takes a back seat to college and pro football and the year-ending baseball season. Just hold on. Tiger Woods is back, and for one weekend, the game of golf has people mesmerized. Forget that the Boston Red Sox won the American League East in a land slide. Forget the Cleveland Browns won their first game in over two years. Forget that winless Old Dominion upset No. 13 Virginia Tech.
Tiger Woods won the PGA Tour Championship Sunday by two strokes for his first victory in five years. His 80th career victory came at the expense of Justin Rose who won the FedEx Cup Championship by making a birdie on the final hole.
Tiger shot one-over-par 71 but it was good enough to bring congratulatory tweets from President Trump, Jack Nicklaus, Bubba Watson, Chris Paul, Rory McIlroy and many other celebrities and sports stars.
Tiger appeared on the front pages of most American newspapers last Monday morning and probably will be on many magazine covers this coming weekend.
After a long, grueling comeback road, Tiger is back.
The thousands of on-site fans who watched the tournament at East Lake outside Atlanta and the rest of the golf world could not be happier.
