Given the historic nature of Tiger Woods’ 15th major victory and 5th Masters win, I’d ask that you please permit me to share just a few more pieces & retrospectives, and then I’ll cool it on the golf for a while. Deal? Okay, deal. 😁
In all seriousness, I’ve been following Tiger’s pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major tournament victories since 2005. The history of scandal, injury, and setback that followed his U.S. Open win in 2008 has been well-documented, to say the least. And in the wake of Tiger’s spinal fusion surgery in 2017 I figured it was all but over as far as his career in golf was concerned.
Tiger’s 2018 comeback season (see ESPN’s Return of the Roar
) culminated with a win at the Tour Championship, but winning a major still seemed out of reach. I guess not.
Now that the floodgates are open, will we see Tiger win another major this year? I can’t wait to find out.
