Even after all that has transgressed it is hard to ask the question, “Can Tiger Woods win?” Well, here we are going to into a final round of an event and Tiger Woods has a chance.

Tiger took a 3 stroke lead from Friday and turned it into a 1 stroke deficit going into Sunday. It wasn’t all due to his mistakes, as Zach Johnson eagled out on 18 from 163 yds to take the lead, but his 73 following rounds of 69 and 67 was due to his inability to finish holes. Tiger had issues on par 5′s with bogey’s on three of them. Let’s see if Tiger can tame the winds in Thousand Oaks and stare down the competition.

The event is not an event that counts on the PGA tour but it does count in the eyes of public perception. If Tiger can win this one, the golf world can breathe a sigh of relief. The PGA needs Woods to be a verifiable stud on the course, instead of a stud in other aspects. Tiger tees off at 1:40 pm in the 18 man event. The final round will be televised beginning at 3 pm on NBC. I may be watching the end of the first set of NFL games but I assure you I will be checking in on the happenings.

We may be getting to see this sight once again?

Or will we again be seeing this?
