On that day Woods was playing a practice round for the World Golf Championship at Bellerive. Woods’s practice-round partner on that Tuesday he said was Mark Calcavecchia. The following day he said he “tried” to play a practice round he thought with Mike Weir. Then the PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem canceled the event. The next day Woods said he drove home to Orlando in a tournament courtesy car. The drive he said took 17 hours.
The grit and determination of the Tiger of old is still there and today was proof that he’s capable of getting the putter to go his way too. Now it’s just a matter of reps.
It made me remember what it was like following him and how a small unofficial tournament meant nothing but in a way was hope for something. He played well that week and that something was what we saw for flashes at Carnoustie and more recently the PGA Championship.
