Tiger Woods Bayhill Golf Tourney

Tiger Woods Bayhill Golf Tourney, That roar you just heard was the sound of Tiger Woods coming back, trumpeting to the golf jungle that he is ashamed, embarrassed and wounded no more.
Woods, now 36, won the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday at Bay Hill in Orlando, Fla., shooting 13 under par for the tournament and whipping second-place finisher Graeme McDowell by five shots for his first official PGA Tour victory in more than 21/2 years. He did win his own Chevron World Challenge in December, but that was like beating himself.
”It feels really good,” the beaming, red-shirted Woods said after the victory.
And why wouldn’t it?
The things that had gone wrong with his high-flying career since he backed his Cadillac Escalade down his driveway and into a fire hydrant and a tree on Thanksgiving 2009, leaving him half-conscious in the street, were profound and overwhelming.
Blown up was his marriage, his meticulously groomed image, his role as a father and – to many, if not most, golf fans – his appeal.
Strippers and sex tapes went with his wholesome image the way battery acid went with pancakes.
And then there was the toll his violent swing was taking on his body. Multiple surgeries to his left knee, problems with his left Achilles tendon and residual damage from the car wreck suddenly made him seem like a star athlete whose carefree days were long gone.
Yes, he had won 71 PGA Tour titles and 14 majors, but maybe it was the fearless, youthful, ccky living on the edge – from his swing to his personal life – that had taken him where it did. And now that destiny was dumping him like a busted toy.
Just two weeks ago, he dropped out of the Cadillac Championship at Doral midway through his final round because of his Achilles. Right then and there, without much fantasizing, skeptics and cynics could see the end coming.
