People are either going to love or hate Tiger Woods, but there is one thing that no one can deny--the man can play some golf. Yeah, there are times when he looks more like one of us out there on the course with some of the things he does, but for the most part he looks like the best golfer in the world.
Because he is.
Those in need of a reminder of his greatness on the links got one during the second round of the Bridgestone Invitational Friday at the Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, where he flirted with a 59 at times and ended shooting a 61.
I think I shot that on the first hole my last time at the putt-putt course!

Tiger Woods absolutely sizzled on the golf course Friday, flirting with a 59 before "settling" for a 61 and a seven-shot lead after two rounds at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

Yes it’s true. Tiger Woods shoots a second round (-9) under, 61 at Firestone Country Club. He sure could have used this round a couple of weeks ago in Scotland. Tiger’s 61 ties his personal best as he was nine under in his first 13 holes flirting with 59 with 5 holes to go. It’s unbelievable to think he only needed eleven one-putts through his...
Tiger sank a birdie putt to get to 16-under overall while extending his already commanding lead to a whopping nine shots. His reaction? Pure swag, of course.
