Tiger is back - at least for now

Tiger Woods needed only two words to explain where the Memorial fits in on his road back from wherever he was to wherever he is going. ''I won,'' he said. When trying to chart his progress, golf becomes a lot like watching tennis. He wins at Sherwood, and then can't shake Robert Rock in Abu Dhabi. Phil Mickelson blows him away at Pebble Beach, and then Woods...

Tiger wins Memorial in dramatic fashion

I guess we can put a stop to those stories about whether Tiger can come back. Today’s win was vintage Tiger Woods, and now he has momentum heading into the US Open in a couple of weeks. Dust off the Tiger Woods highlight reel and add another jaw-dropper, this one near the very top. From a downhill lie, to a green running away from him, and with a wall of water lurking if he went...

Fowler left behind by Woods' surge at Memorial

On the first hole of Sunday's final round of the Memorial, Rickie Fowler poured in a 14-foot birdie putt.

Marshals had to quiet the crowd down: It seemed that Fowler's playing partner...

Tiger Woods' Agent Mark Steinberg Arrested For Drunken Driving

Cinderella golfer going to the ball

To supplement his income early last decade, Australian professional golfer Anthony Summers spent a couple of years cleaning toilets on weekends at his hometown Sydney Cricket Ground and Sydney Football Stadium.

Tiger Woods, LeBron James Work Their Way Toward Redemption With Vintage Performances

Men cheat on their wives. It happens. People also run their mouths, or say things that sound insensitive to entire cities. If these figures are athletes, this seems to happen much more frequently. So, why was everyone so upset at Tiger Woods and LeBron James in their respective implosions over the past few years? One part of the answer is because they were Tiger Woods and LeBron...
