Tiger Woods, who has long sought to attain golfing greatness, gained a satisfying measure of sports symmetry on Sunday by winning the Memorial thus achieving one of his most important golfing goals.

Appropriately it happened at the tournament hosted by the legendary golfer known as the Golden Bear – Jack Nicklaus, who Tiger has been stalking since childhood. With the win, the 73rd of his career, Tiger is now tied with Nicklaus for second place on the all-time PGA victory list.

Lots of golfers look this bad at any given tournament, but rarely is that golfer named Tiger Woods.

Let me start by saying that I am thrilled that Tiger Woods is healthy and was not seriously hurt in that accident outside of his home the other night. I selfishly want to see him continue to lay waste to his peers, because I am a huge Tiger Woods fan. But that said, there are […]
