Tiger Woods wins on Sunday … but is he back?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: For one Sunday afternoon, Tiger Woods was back where he hasn’t been in far too long.

On top.

Once considered the world’s best golfer, Woods has been mired in a devastating slump. After health problems (and personal, off-the-course struggles) damaged his game, Woods endured crucial rehabilitation in a fight to get back into the winner’s circle. It finally happened Sunday afternoon, as Tiger topped fellow golfer Zach Johnson by one stroke at the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, California.

It was Woods’ first win in two years.

Could this be the beginning of a stellar comeback?

“In recent weeks, though, Woods’ play and confidence steadily had improved, and now he has a win to validate the effort,” writes Jim Peltz of the Los Angeles Times.

Reuters’ Mark Lamport-Stokes agrees, stating, “While some will argue that Tiger Woods’ long-awaited return to the winner’s circle on Sunday came in an unofficial 18-man event with the odds stacked in his favor, there is no doubt the former world No. 1 is back to form. In throwing off much of the old for the new, it would now seem that the old Tiger is back — or at least a new and perhaps an improved version.”
