Not only are all his teeth where they used to be, Tiger seems to be pain-free, back in shape and willing to make a statement at the Masters this year.
Over the last years Tiger here and there dropped out of tournaments for various reasons; knee problems, back problems and sometimes most likely swing problems as well. For some people out there Tiger’s explanations afterwards sounded like nothing but excuses.
Undoubtedly he was in pain sometimes and wasn’t in the form he used to be and although we all wish him luck and a good game, it’s Tiger himself who most likely will hate the fact the most that he’s not good enough anymore currently to be in contention to win a tournament, a “normal” PGA Tour tournament that is.
Just recently Tiger fell out of the top 100 world ranking list and we all may believe that he’d like to have that changed again. This man is pure golf passion, he basically lived for nothing but this sport. He will give everything necessary to be part of the big guys club again. We will see in the following days whether that plan plays out or not.
One interesting quote from today’s the press conference: “My biggest motivation? Winning!… I like it!” with that huge smile on his face.
This week’s gonna be so interesting!
