After 924 days, plenty of hard work with his coach Sean Foley, countless hours of under achievement in the glare of the public eye, Tiger Woods finally laid one ghost to rest. His five-shot victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, Orlando, Florida earned him his first PGA Tour win in over two years.
Certainly, the weight of pressure has been lifted from Tiger’s shoulders. Carrying that monkey on his back over the last 12 months in particular has seemingly weighed him down at times.
That’s why few people will begrudge him his “f*** yeah!” explosion of delight as his approach to the last at 18 landed safely on the green missing the water, handing Woods the formality of putting out for a relatively easy win.
