Forget the talk of whether Tiger is “back.” Nobody will ever be back to the days of when Tiger Woods was big pimpin’ and winning majors left and right like it was his job. Now that the women seem to be gone, Tiger must resort to only being No. 1 on the money list and in the FedEx Cup standings. The major wins may or may not come back.
But, shots like this one Thursday during the first round of the British Open will help them come back. On the par-4 12th hole, Woods found himself with a disastrous lie along the ridge in a green-side bunker. Tiger being Tiger (only without all the ladies) pulled out a wedge, got down on a knee and hit a one-legged chip that only Tiger Woods (and maybe Shooter McGavin) could hit.
Despite being in Scotland, Woods was able to put enough English on it so it wouldn’t run past the hole.
