Default Tiger Woods - I'd say he's back

There's always going to be those few who say, he's not back until he wins a major. That's complete BS. He's won already 4 times this year and just won the Players Championship. He's back.

Interesting, in an interview he said he's never played Merion before (where the US Open is this year). I don't think that's a huge disadvantage though, it's not a tour stop and the last time it hosted a major was in 1981. So I don't think alot of the pros have excellent knowledge of the course.

He'll win a major this year. I'd bet on it.

IMO, I think the US Open needs to start playing a wider variety of venues. This going to Pebble Beach every 8 years or so is stupid. Especially since it's an annual tour stop. I think it's silly to not play at a course like Merion for 32 years but you'll play Pebble 4 times in that span.

i wouldn't say he's back so much as he's finally gotten to a point where he can evolve his game and begin to work with the ability he has.

he'll never again be that old dominant tiger of old due to age and injuries.
but this tiger can be even more deadly because he has a wealth of experience and knows how to avoid the injuries that plagued him previously.

Well I guess "back" is relative. He's back to #1 in the world. He's back to kicking ass. He's back to winning. In 3 years he'll be 40 so I think it's just a tad unrealistic to think he'll ever be back to what he was at 25. If people are going to say he's not back until he plays like he did at that age then that's just ignorant.

Yes, I agree. He's not back back. He's just back. Or "semi" back, if you will.

He's on point. Never really played the players that well and came in and whipped ass while the big names didnt even make the cut. Dude is winning multiple tourneys. He's in control while I see inconsistency in all the other players on the tour. Always at the top of the leader boards

Garcia will be here to say he is done soon enough. I think he is a lock to win US Open. He won't have to hit driver and it will be like his last Brittish open.

BS he's back. He hit a duck hook off 14 and almost gave the tourney away. Lucky for him, Garcia was the chaser. As it stands, he will not be back until he gets it done in one of the 4.

If all you got is one shot on a course he's never really played well consistently, well that ain't an arguement. He was up so much that he could absorb a double. How exactly is it tigers fault that the entire field sucks balls? No one stepped up and tiger did. He's won more tourneys in these last couple months than players have their entire careers. He's on a roll. It's ok if you want to hate the guy, but blind hate shows stupidity.

Ok if you say so. I look at it more of he was is cruise control and didn't lose his lead with a double bogey.

Yes, I would say he's "Back in the Blond Saddle" again .....

Well maybe not, I don't think that the carpet matches the drapes?

How many players will win 4 tournaments this year? In fact how many will win 4 in their whole career?

He's definitely the most consistent golfer out there and a legit #1. The next best player (McIlroy, IMHO)won one major last year and then failed to make the cut in two others - there's a ridiculous level of inconsistency in the sport generally.

But frankly, impressive as he was it was a bit boring when he was winning everything back in the day. I think he's a more exciting player to watch right now as he is still capable of the same old brilliance but you aren't quite sure.....I'd like him to win a few more majors without being quite as dominant as he was, keep the doubt there.

He's totally back. No question about it. Majors are hard to come by.

For any given player you can name, smart money says he never wins a major again.

I thought this was going to be a news story that he's banging Ihop waitresses again which would mean yes , he's back...

He will never be what he was 10 years ago , so "back" is a non story.

Tiger is back! I know for a fact that his Dad was back. His Mom isn't back and that is why Tiger will never totally be back. He is close but to be totally back, his Mom has to be back too. If you want to talk who is totally back, Venus and Serena are totally back.

i think the scandal showed he likes blonde or brunette. as long as they are freaky.

Tiger always seems to play his best when his personal life is settled. when he first got married he was a beast on the golf course.

now he's got another hot chick on his arm and she's already close with his kids so he doesn't have to worry about the potential awkwardness of introducing her.

if this relationship lasts for awhile i think Tiger will go on a tear and break a few important records.
though it is hilarious that she was one of the main people critical of him when the scandal brought and was even videotaped making fun of him and now she's thoroughly enjoyed getting the shaft from him.

Back to what is the question. Is he back to being the best player in the world? Sure looks like it.

Is he back to being as dominant as he was before it was revealed he's a world class douche-nozzle? Not even close.
