While You Were Sleeping...
In case you missed it, Tiger Woods won a tournament yesterday!
Yep, won him a big ol tournament and a check and a trophy and a smile from all those Dubai people. Tiger played decently well down the stretch, making five birdies on his last seven holes including birdies on both 17 and 18 to win by a shot.
Tiger shot a 7-under 65 Sunday to go two-for-two so far in 2008. After smoking the field at the Buick Invitational last week Tiger looks to be off to a mediocre year. If you're a golfer and you like to win PGA Tour events, I'd lower your expectations for the remainder of the season.
You might not remember this name, but Ernie Els had a chance to tie Tiger on the last hole, a par-5, but in very calm Ernie fashion, smoked his drive in a pond and went on to make birdie.
So, lets recount Tiger's last eight tournaments.
WGC-Bridgestone Invitational - First
PGA Championship - First
Deutsche Bank Championship - Second (WHAAAAAA?)
BMW Championship - First
The Tour Championship - First
Target World Challenge - First
Buick Invitational - First
Dubai Desert Classic - First
2008 Presidential Election - First
2008 Super Bowl - First
Bacon Family Thanksgiving Day Cornhole Tournament - Tied for First
The dude doesn't give many people a chance.
