Midwest Sports Fans:
The sex-scandal happened. The injuries happened. Losing happened.
From late 2009 until early 2012, the most talented golfer of all-time, Tiger Woods, was weighed down by several major events, all falling under the three categories just mentioned.
But now it is 2012 and Tiger has, for the most part, moved on.

He’s healthy, and he’s winning, currently leading the PGA Tour in wins this year with three.
So for an athlete that prides himself around one thing and one thing only, winning, what’s the problem? Why are some people still questioning one of the most dominant athletes this world has ever seen?
No matter how many other records you hold, this is the one that really matters in the world of golf. The average sports fan doesn’t know who Sam Snead is, who happens to hold the all-time PGA wins record, with 82. But every sports fan knows Jack Nicklaus, because of his all-time best 18 maj...

Tiger Woods is not the golfer we saw years ago. The debate about whether Woods is back or not should be over now with the way he played his last round at the Open Championship. Woods couldn’t control his driver when he pulled it out, he lacked the confidence to pull it of his bag for most of the Open. Woods could make putts that would have helped him gain ground on the leader and...
Tiger Woods was in contention at the British Open until the sixth hole of the final round, where serious bunker trouble led to a triple bogey.
Tiger Woods had owned the par-4 sixth hole at Royal Lytham & St. Annes the first three days of the 141st Open Championship.
And then the toughest hole at Royal Lytham struck back at an inopportune time for Woods, who took a triple-bogey in Sunday's final round to cripple his run at leader Adam Scott.
After finding the fairway with 3-wood, Woods flew his approach shot into...
"Even par," Tiger Woods said with a sigh of his Saturday round of 70, "is about right."
Except, of course, that it was about wrong.
Woods needed to make his move in the third round of the 141st Open Championship. The 15th major he's sought for four years and a month beckoned.
And after holding a share of the midway lead at last month's US Open and fading...
The enduring image of Tiger Woods from this British Open will be of him bent over on one knee, his other leg angled to the side, as he desperately tried to save his day with a miracle shot from deep in a bunker off the sixth green. His adventure in the sand proved costly, though perhaps even more fatal to his chances were the three straight bogeys he made on the back nine when his...

Tiger Woods did not with a 15th major title Sunday at the British Open, but that's all a part of his "process."
Part of that process also has been a gradual climb in the World Golf Ranking. He has climbed from a low of No. 58 on Nov. 6, 2011 to No. 2 in the latest rankings, released Monday after the Open. The trailed only top-ranked Luke Donald.
Woods tied for third...
Follow Tiger Woods hole-by-hole at Round 4 of the British Open.
Adam Scott was struggling to protect Sunday in the finale of the British Open, making three bogeys early in the round, while Tiger Woods' hopes of a 15th major title might have ended when he took a triple-bogey at the sixth hole after being forced to hit out of a bunker while sitting down.
No one was taking charge at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, where the sun was out again...
Earlier today, Tiger Woods struggled a bit, missing a couple short putts. However, he did sink this unbelievable 50-foot putt on the 6th hole. Tiger sits in 4th place going into the final round tomorrow, one shot behind Brandt Snedeker and Graeme McDowell, who are both at -7. Adam Scott is your British Open leader at -11.
ESPN has encouraged interactivity with viewers on a lot of levels. One of those levels was the British Open (no, not interactive tea bagging of Tiger Woods -- though that's what they do) and the...

You have to play 72 holes of solid golf to win any tournament on the PGA Tour. Adam Scott only played 68 holes of solid golf at the 2012 British Open and it cost him his first major championship win. Scott bogeyed a couple holes on the front-9, but so did the rest of the players on the top of the leaderboard, so with a 4-shot leading heading into today, he was looking great standing...
Adam Scott was hot on Thursday, steady on Friday and steady again today. Scott shot a 2-under 68 in the third round of the tournament and currently sits at 11-under heading into the final day of the 2012 British Open. Scott can thank his putter for giving him a huge opportunity to grab his 1st Major since breaking into the PGA Tour in 2001. Scott started the day in 2nd place behind...
Follow Mike Macchi on Twitter today! It was not Tiger Woods or Graeme McDowell who made things interesting on Sunday at Royal Lytham. In fact, the two were more of an afterthought by the day’s end. In one of the more improbable finishes in Open Championship history, Ernie Els hoisted the Claret Jug in victory [...]
