We can probably rule out Tiger Woods winning this weekend’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. He was right in it after two rounds, but a Saturday 75 dropped him well back of the lead, and Rickie Fowler has spent Sunday birdying literally all the damn holes, so Tiger is out of it.
But! He has recovered, today, from yesterday’s slide, and looks like he looked before Saturday’s rough performance. Look at this goddamn moonshot of a drive on the par-4 7th:
The eagle was part of a 5-under 31 on the front nine. He’s ballin’ out there! He had another eagle putt on the par-5 11th, and generally looks like powerful-ass Tiger friggin’ Woods out there. For whatever reason, I find myself really enjoying this comeback. Maybe it’s because few golfers on earth can mash the hell out of the ball like Tiger can.
