Tiger Woods Gets His Groove Back…and it only took 749 days!

By Sarah Gubara

Tiger Woods finally got a chance to celebrate again on December 4th, 2011 after his birdie putt on the 18th hole led him to win the Chevron World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club in California. He finished 10 under par to beat Zach Johnson by only ONE stroke. Sorry Zach…

Tiger Woods won his last title in 2009 at the Australian Masters. Since then he’s struggled to repair both his public image and athletic skills.

It took Tiger 749 days to return to victory…here’s what’s happened since then:
  • The Texas Rangers lost in the World Series...Twice
  • The Saints and Packers both won the Super Bowl
  • Lebron James took his talents to South Beach
  • South Africa hosted the World Cup
  • Michael Vick was forgiven
  • Prince William got married
  • Osama Bin Laden was found and killed
  • Gaddaffi was toppled
  • The NFL lockout began
  • The NFL lockout ended
  • The NBA lockout began
  • The NBA lockout ended
  • The Boston Bruins get a long-awaited Stanley Cup
  • Brett Favre has retired, and unretired, and retired, and...
  • Tiger changed his swing, then his coach, then his caddie.
In the midst of all of this, we had forgotten all about Tiger Woods. In fact, even my Xbox’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour ‘12 forgot about his success on the green, because the gaming version of Tiger has been missing a lot of shots lately, in addition to hitting people in the crowd. At the end of the day there’s only one way to know if Tiger Woods really got his groove back…endorsements—once those start rolling in again we’ll know that he’s back for sure.
