    I suppose that'll make him a Masters favorite for sure.

    The way he has been playing this year I would think so. He looked like the Tiger of old. He and Folwer were playing together and when Fowler stroked in about a 30 foot birdie putt to cut the lead to 2 Tiger sunk a 25 foot birdie on the same hole to put it back to 3. Tiger also had some fairly long par putts that he drilled dead center to maintain a lead.

    The biggest thing is his putting has been tremendous this year. He's playing incredibly well right now, and Augusta is the perfect setting for Tiger to let the world know that he's back in a big way.

    He is finally in a good place after the last couple of years. His divorce is behind him, has a new love interest and his golf game is hitting on all cylinders ATM. The only hitch in his game is his driving, but it isn't that bad either. I expect him to win at least 5 more tourneys this year which includes a couple majors.

    By the way the win puts him back to #1 in the world rankings

    Tiger Woods regained the No. 1 spot in the world golf rankings, winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Monday in Orlando, Florida.

    Woods won the tournament for the eighth time, tying Sam Snead for the most times winning one event in a career.

    Woods shot a fourth-round 70 Monday and beat Justin Rose by two strokes. Rory McIlroy slides to No. 2 in the world rankings

    Good for Tiger, I have always enjoyed the excellence that he brings to his sport.

    He is still a lousy husband and father, .. which is the more important measure of a man.

    I agree. It would be fair to say that is your view of Michael Irvin as well?

    I can respect the athletic accomplishments, as for their personal lives I try not to get caught up in that. As with most relationship and personal issues there is more to the story or the relationship than we may know.

    Maybe he "was" a lousy husband and father and is working on becoming better at both of those. :confused: Just a thought. Afterall, it is what he said he was going to try to do.

    True, No doubt he made mistakes he is not the 1st nor the last to do so. How you come back from personal short comings in life matters. I don't condon what Tiger did but as I have said many times that is an issue between Tiger and his wife now ex-wife. How or if Tiger turns his personal life around is on him, I'm not his judge.

    As for his profession, he is the best there has been

    I was not surprised at what happened to Tiger. His father put so much pressure on him as a child, sooner or later he would rebel. The longer and harder the pressure the worse it would be.

    When his father died he felt free for the first time and he went nuts.

    Poor Tiger. :cry2:

    Oh, and it did not happen 'to' Tiger, it happened 'to' his wife and kids 'because' of Tiger.

    I don't recall Tiger wife being beaten with a golf club. :laugh2:
    As for wife and kids I think they made out pretty good at 750 million

    I think Tiger could win at the Masters... But his driving was erratic. He won't be able to get away with that at Augusta.

    He can use irons off the tee at Augusta for the most part, it is tailored to his strengths. I think only five holes require the use of the driver but I might be mistaken.

    He can't be working on being a better husband, since his wife threw out his sorry .

    Still, I don't really care what he does with his pants off, although it was cool seeing his BS image blown to smithereens.

    We don't know what he is like as a father and face it, look at his father role model, a total dbag.

    He provided for Elin and the tots well. Maybe she wasn't very giving in other aspects so he had to get additional on the side. Who knows.

    I hate him, always have and always will but face it, no one would be all that upset with his off the green behaviour if it had been with class A chicks, not Denny's waitresses.

    Tiger has played some incredible golf this year. Knocking down flag sticks and draining puts. Looking forward to watching him this year. Hoping he wins a couple of Majors this year.

    Last Tuesday, when a new ranking was released, it will be Woods' 6,054th day as a professional golfer, and it will also be his 4,362nd day as the No. 1 golfer in the world. Or 72 percent of his professional career. Crazy good stuff.

    I watch Golf because I want to see some amazing shots, I don't care about their personal life, most of us have made mistakes in life, some are more serious than others. Tiger hurt his wife, kids and his family greatly, but he didn't kill, rape, sold drugs or got caught DWI and killed anyone. He paid dearly for his transgression and he was kicked around hard while he was down but he persevered, including injuries and surgeries and came back to be top of his profession, to me that dedication and drive doesn't exist in most of us and you have to give him credit for getting to where he is at now.

    I find it comical that one particular poster usually defends rapist/drunk driver/murderer and yet bashing a guy for adultery.

    I agree. You left out changing of his swing. Dealing with the injury and going through a swing change Tiger said it was hard to get in the needed work to refine the changes he was making. It looks as if it is all starting to come together. As for his personal life I agree, he made a big mistake he has paid dearly for the mistake and as Irvin said in the HOF speech, you get up, you dust yourself off and you never quit
