It has only been 29 months since October 2010, but to Tiger Woods, those months must have felt like years. That was the last time Woods was ranked No. 1 in the world until he regained the top golf ranking when he won his eighth Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, tying a record. For people like James Ellington, golfer and fan, Woods’ climb back to the top is a great thing for the sport as a whole.
Woods played conservatively over his final few holes and shot a bogey on the 18th just to play it safe. He finished with a 2-over 70 in his final round and beat Justin Rose by two strokes. His fall from the top spot started after a combination of his wife leaving him because of his cheating as well as a knee injury. Woods has been working on his return and putting in the extra time, and now it looks like he’s back in form. His next big test will come at the Masters. James Ellington, golfer, says Woods needs to put on a good show at the Masters and win in order to prove to his doubters that he is back.
The win was his third of the season and his first since announcing that he and Olympic skier Lindsay Vonn are dating. Vonn celebrated the ranking with a tweet that simply said “Number 1!!!”
Woods never let anyone within two strokes of him in the fourth round, which was delayed due to inclement weather and carried over into Monday. Rickie Fowler tried to make things interesting as he sunk a 25-foot putt on the 14th for a birdie that put him two behind Woods, but went for all or nothing on the par-5 16th and came up with water twice. That resulted in a triple bogey.
Woods tied two records with his eighth win at Bay Hill. First, he tied the record that Sam Snead set when he won the Greater Greensboro Open eighth times over a span of 27 years. Woods also tied his own record for most wins at a single course, as he has won at Torrey Pines eight times, one time for a U.S. Open title. According to James Ellington, golfer and perfectionist, winning eight times at two different courses shows how dominant Woods can be.
James Ellington, golfer, has played the game for years and strives to have one round like Tiger Woods.

Poor little tink tink.
It seems Kris Humphries can’t find a woman to stay with him longer than a few months, before running to the arms of a wealthier more popular man.
According to Gossip Extra, before Tiger Woods publicly announced he was in a relationship with Lindsey Vonn, it appears Humphries was close in the second place.
