Last year, Woods was in horrendous pain, struggling to do the things we all take for granted including walking, sitting and even standing. The fourteen-time Champion didn’t know if he’d ever be able to play again, let alone compete at the Masters.
What we saw this past weekend at the Masters in Augusta was a vibrant Tiger and, for now, that’s as much a triumph as any title he’s won.
“It’s disappointing that I didn’t hit the ball well enough. But to be able to just be out here competing again, if you had said that last year at this particular time I would have said you’re crazy,” Woods said Sunday afternoon after shooting a 69 that left him at 1-over for the week. “So now to be able to play and compete and hit the ball the way I did, that’s quite a big change from last year.”
Woods’ comeback has been one of the most inspiring stories in recent years, and his consecutive top-five finishes coming into the Masters fueled hope of another impressive finish at the Augusta National. His following and fans have always been loyal regardless of his overall placing, he has a following like no other in the sport. Tiger Mania did not subside while he was recovering from his back surgery.
“It was a little bit disappointing I didn’t hit my irons as well as I needed to for this particular week. You miss it just a touch here it gets magnified,” he said. “But overall I’m five or six tournaments into it. To be able to compete out here and to score like I did, it feels good.”
