Tiger Woods looked like the Tiger of old on Sunday en route to a victory in the Cadillac Championship. The win at Doral was the 76th in Tiger’s career. It was also his fifth tournament win in his last 19 starts, which has many ready to accept the fact that Tiger may officially be back.
What we saw on Sunday was vintage Woods, as Tiger held a comfortable lead for most of the afternoon and hardly even broke a sweat. There was no choking and no double-bogey to breathe life into Phil Mickelson and the other players who finished in the top 5 but never even got close enough to get the blood flowing. Instead, Woods finished the tournament with only 100 putts in 72 holes — the best mark of his career. For that, he thanked Steve Stricker.
“Thank you to Steve for the putting lesson,” Woods said while receiving the WGC trophy on Sunday, via ESPN.com. “It was one of those weeks where I felt pretty good about how I was playing, made a few putts and got it rolling.”
