Is he finally back? Who the heck really knows. But after a superb performance on Sunday afternoon, Tiger Woods produced the kind of performance we'd been waiting two years to see.
Those may be some bold words, but after watching Woods dispose of Aaron Baddeley during his Presidents Cup singles match, clinching the winning point to secure the trophy, it's hard to not look at the former No. 1 ranked player in the world and believe things have finally clicked for him.
Woods' swing had been coming around for some time. After posting a third-place finish -- his best of the season -- at the Australian Open, there were signs that he had finally found his swing. But there was still something missing.
That missing piece was a confidence boost. Rarely does Woods lack anything in the confidence department, but watching him struggle at times in the last year, you could tell he needed a little bit of swagger to finally put it all together.
It's too bad for Aaron Baddeley that Wo...
BEST OF MAXIM
Is there any athlete who's had more of an up-and-down — lots of downs, very few ups — in the last few years than Tiger Woods? You know it all by now: hydrant, scandal, apology, injury, slow recovery.
But lately, there have been signs that maybe, just maybe, things might be turning around for the onetime dominator. Several good rounds in Australia, including the clinching...

I saw this picture yesterday from the President’s Cup. The chicks in the picture are dating two of Tiger Woods’ teammates. I have a couple thoughts on this one; (1) Apparently, women aren’t as mad at Tiger Woods as we think (2) If I’m dating a chick I’m keeping her close to me when Tiger is on the prowl. Once a dog, always a dog.
Since it’s been a while it’s only fair...

Tiger Woods hasn't looked this good on the golf course in back-to-back weeks since he left Australia two years ago with his 82nd title and the indisputable No. 1 ranking. OK, it's a small sample. The Australian Open and the Presidents Cup marked only the sixth time since the end of 2009 that Woods has even competed in consecutive weeks.
Woods is 0-2 for the first time ever in this event, and the first time in any team competition since he and Phil Mickelson lost their opening two matches at the 2004 Ryder Cup.
Tiger Woods was on track to pick up his first point in the first three days of the Presidents Cup and the United States led in three of the five foursomes matches Saturday.
The United States captured their fourth straight Presidents Cup, avenging the brutal beatdown at Royal Melbourne that the International side dished out 13 years ago.
Somewhat fitting, Tiger Woods was the man to seal the deal on Sunday with a picture-perfect blast from a greenside bunker on the 15th hole, effectively putting away the Cup and crowd favorite Aaron Baddeley.
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The winning point for Tiger Woods. A perfect record for Jim Furyk.
And validation for U.S. captain Fred Couples.
The Americans won the Presidents Cup as a team, 19-15, avenging their worst loss ever in any cup competition 13 years ago on a Royal Melbourne course that lived up to its reputation as among the greatest tests in golf.
Yet even as they...
