Tiger Woods just loves winning at Bay Hill in the Arnold Palmer invitational as he is looking for win number 7. Woods didn’t move to a large lead today and he almost risked falling back. The Rest of the field didn’t take full advantage of the fact Woods only posted one under par today.  Nonetheless Woods shooting one under par was good enough to hold off Graeme McDowell who also posted only one under. It seemed as though no one wanted to take the lead away from Tiger Woods today, it was sure there for the picking.

Ernie Els has himself on position to give Tiger something to think about as they head into the final round Sunday. Els is only trailing Tiger by 3 strokes. With Woods playing consistent golf Els could catch him. If Ernie can continue his Florida swing building his confidence back up this years Masters could be something to think about. First Ernie Els has to post a win on the PGA tour. Els who has had a great Career has struggled with his putter over the last eighteen months.

Tiger will have to keep an eye on the leader board tomorrow at Bay Hill. If Woods can’t gain any momentum with the way he is playing , he could easily let either Graeme McDowell or Ernie Els back into the tournament. McDowell didn’t do much today, however he is playing some consistant golf this week and shouldn’t give onto the fact he will be in the final round with Woods.

For those of you wondering if Woods can win the same tournament 7 times, he has done it before. Woods won the Bridgestone Invitational seven times at Firestone. As far as I know Tiger is the only PGA tour player to win a tournament 7 times. There are others including Sam Snead with six wins at the same event. Lets not forget the greatest golfer that ever lived, Jack Nicklaus won the Masters six times at Augusta National (1963, ’65, ’66, ’72, ’75, ’86).

Can Tiger Woods hold on to win at Arnie’s place Sunday in the final round? It should be interesting to watch. There are six guys within 6 strokes of the lead.

For Tiger, better to be lucky than good

Back in the day, Tiger Woods wasn't just the best player in the world, he was also one of the luckiest.

The past two-and-a-half years, not so...
