Tiger Wins At Bay Hill!

tiger-bay-hill-3-29-09 Magic – absolute magical, impressive and dramatic!!!

Tiger busted the weirdest celebration move ever in the picture above but I guess he didn’t know what to do with the sum of all his athletic parts as he sunk the 15 foot birdie at the 18th hole at Bay Hill as he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational by one shot over Sean O’Hair to match the largest comeback in his PGA Tour career. Did you see Stevie lift him off the ground?! 🙂

“It feels good to be back in contention, to feel the rush,” Woods said. “It’s been awhile, but God, it felt good. I hadn’t been in the mix since the U.S. Open, so it was neat to feel the heat again.”

Starting the final round five shots behind, Woods closed with a 3-under 67. It was the third time Tiger won at Bay Hill with a birdie putt on the 18th hole and his sixth win there.

This is phenomenal and a testament to Tiger’s ability, work ethics and focus.  This is just Tiger’s third start after reconstructive surgery on his left knee 8 months ago!

Magical!

  2. Nice post Paulette, Tiger is back! I was at the 2000 AT&T Pebble Beach Tournament, so I knew that Tiger had come back from 5 strokes behind before, but I did not expect him to do what he did on Sunday. I think people might enjoy this list, since Tiger and Arnold Palmer are both on it. I’m not sure if Byron Nelson’s record of 18 single season wins will ever be broken.

    • Hey Vince, thanks for stopping by. Like you I was blown away on Sunday. Just incredible. The 14th hole was great but at the 18th he got that ‘look’ in his eyes…

      Thanks for the great list — very very informative. Byron Nelson’s record is R.I.D.I.C.U.L.O.U.S!!!

      I would like to see Vijay win some more championships as well as Retief Goosen.
