ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Tiger Woods finally brought the buzz back to the very thing that made him famous – winning.
Two weeks after another injury scare, and two days before his former coach’s book goes on sale, Woods looked dominant as ever Sunday in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
It was his first PGA Tour victory since a sex scandal at the end of 2009 led to one of the greatest downfalls in sports. And with the Masters only two weeks away, Woods looks more capable of ever than resuming his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus in the majors.
Woods closed with a 2-under 70 for a five-shot win over Graeme McDowell.
The question two weeks ago was when he could play again. Now, it’s whether he can rule the sport like he once did.
