Five strokes back on Sunday. Five! You know many of my golf friends have said that Tiger just doesn’t do it in the clutch, that he’s no Arnold Palmer or Jack Nicholas. Well, they are right. Tiger Woods isn’t anyone but Tiger. Sean O’Hair did shoot a 73, but no one else caught Tiger either.
In what has to be the most amazing display of dominance in a sport since Michael Jordan’s Bulls or Magic’s Lakers, Tiger Woods did it again. I didn’t even think it was possible. I figured he would ease back into form especially after his 2nd round 72. What do I know?
Tiger Woods is more interested in a fifth green jacket at the Masters than 11 straight victories on the PGA Tour.
At this rate, he might have a chance to get both.
Woods resumed his improbable pursuit of Byron Nelson with a predictable result at the Buick Invitational on Sunday, winning for the third straight year to stretch his PGA Tour winning streak to seven. That’s the second-longest streak in tour history behind Nelson in 1945, and there is little evidence anyone can stop him.
