Tiger Woods Returns to No. 1 With Win at Bay Hill

Tiger Woods Returns to No. 1 With Win at Bay Hill | 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill | Scoop.it
Tiger Woods, who last held the No. 1 ranking in October 2010, fell as low as No. 58 as he coped with a personal crisis and injuries to his left leg.
TW Matters's insight:

Watson said: “But you have to remember, the competition is better. Since he hurt himself, there are younger kids coming up. There are people coming over here and playing more. The whole world is growing, and they know how to train and how to practice because they’ve been watching him. So everyone knows how to get better at the game.”

 

After watching Woods secure a sixth official tour victory in his past 20 stroke-play starts dating to this event last year, the next generation can sense that its coronation has been put off indefinitely.

 

“This is the Tiger that I grew up watching,” Bradley said.

 

The golfers Woods, 37, is chasing now include the game’s best players. He passed Jack Nicklaus on the career victory list last year with his 74th title, and his eight wins at Bay Hill match the record-setting victory total of Sam Snead in Greensboro. Snead won for the first time there in 1938 and for the last time in 1965. Woods is also five titles from equaling Snead’s career victory total of 82.

Tiger Woods can confound those who lost faith in his golfing ability by becoming No 1 again - Telegraph

Tiger Woods can confound those who lost faith in his golfing ability by becoming No 1 again - Telegraph | 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill | Scoop.it
His career has been defined by superlatives: the youngest player to win all four majors, the biggest earner in golfing history, the man in possession of the world’s most insatiable appetite for cocktail waitresses.
TW Matters's insight:

Those who have seen him in action recently report a changed man: easy, confident and – given that he was never someone who appeared to be playing the game for enjoyment’s sake – almost as if he is taking pleasure in his day job.

And this is where only the cold-hearted could fail to admire what he has done. His recovery has come not by happenstance or good fortune. It has been arrived at through prodigious quantities of hard work, in the gym as much as on the course.

He has worked tirelessly on a new swing which reduces the pressure on his crumbling knee and hip joints. More to the point, he has managed to clear his head sufficiently to be able to putt again.

Who Brought Tiger Woods Back to No. 1?

Who Brought Tiger Woods Back to No. 1? | 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill | Scoop.it
After suffering through several years of misery and ignominy, it’s like old times for Tiger Woods. It’s worth pondering Tiger’s comeback, and who’s primarily responsible for it.
TW Matters's insight:

After suffering through several years of misery and ignominy, it’s like old times for Tiger. In five starts on the P.G.A. Tour in 2013, he’s won three times. With the Masters coming up in two weeks, he has a great chance of winning his fifteenth major championship. (As all the world knows, he’s just four behind Jack Nicklaus’s tally of eighteen.) Before moving on to Augusta, though, it’s worth pondering Tiger’s comeback, and who’s primarily responsible for it. As far as I can see, there are five candidates:

Tiger Woods, Nearing No. 1, Appears Content

Tiger Woods, Nearing No. 1, Appears Content | 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill | Scoop.it
Tiger Woods, who in the fall of 2011 had tumbled to No. 58 in the rankings, would regain No. 1 with a victory this week in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, an event he has won seven times.
TW Matters's insight:

“I don’t want to become as good as I once was,” Woods said. “No, I don’t. I want to become better.”

Palmer said that he believed Woods could pass Nicklaus, but that he had little time to waste.

“I suppose that every year it’s a little more fleeting,” Palmer said, “and he’ll have to really work hard to keep himself up and keep his mental attitude if he’s going to do it.”
