Tiger Woods Makes A Great Showing at The Masters Considering Previous Injury

After securing another Player of the Year Award for his 5-win season just in 2013, including the Player's Championship, Tiger Woods only played 9 tournaments in 2014. He uncharacteristically missed two cuts and one in his own Foundation event, the Quicken Loans National. Woods’s game had been scarred by serious injury and unforeseen poor play. He was forced to step away from the game over two months ago, with a faulty back and hacker's short game. Add to all of this, the whispers by some in the golf establishment declaring he's done.

However, Woods is living what Mark Twain once remarked, "rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated".

There was even wide skepticism about Woods's return to play the 2015 Masters; but return he did.

Woods spoke of his dogged work load to regain his great play, "I worked my arse off."

He showed signs during his practice rounds and then displayed his unique prowess again in the first 3 rounds, landing at -6, putting him in the 3rd to last group with the golf world's No. 1, Rory McIlroy, albeit 10 shots back.

But even this position was unfathomable even two weeks ago. It stands to be a great final round and a better summer for Tiger Woods and more importantly, the game of golf.
