Tiger's back on the prowl with Ryder Cup in his sights

Tiger's back on the prowl with Ryder Cup in his sights

Tiger has certainly come close - this year he finished second in the PGA Championship and staked a serious claim for The Open.

Tiger Woods stands on the 18th green after winning the Tour Championship golf tournament Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, in Atlanta. Not that 12 of the best players on the planet are short on it, but these younger players get juiced when Woods is in the room, how much more so when Woods is leading off the alternate shot matches. 'I hadn't won any tournaments which they can remember, so I think this will be a little bit different for them.

United States captain Jim Furyk chose to separate his three Ryder Cup rookies as he sent his team out in three fourballs for practice on Tuesday morning.

The victory capped off a season that started with questions over whether Woods, now 10 years removed from his last major title, would even be able to play a full schedule after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April 2017.

Bjorn said they were not scared of the 42-year-old, who ended a five-year drought with victory at the Tour Championship on Sunday, nor any of his stellar United States team-mates.

Compatriot Justin Thomas, who will play alongside Woods for Team USA at this week's Ryder Cup, shared a snap of the buzz on the final green and said "golf couldn't be in a better place".

LPGA players, including former ones such as I, have all been waiting for the rebirth of Tiger Woods. "Just I guess the amount of attention and the buzz around the PGA Championship, around the Tour Championship, the crowd. on the 18th fairway yesterday was incredible".

This seemed to coincide with NBC's announcement that their third round overnight rating was up 142 percent(3.14) over last year and their highest rated third round in 15 years.

"We'll go out and do what we can and play our game".

But one Tiger Woods video of him watching his doubters diss him went viral.

The Golf Channel's Brandel Chamblee tweeted: "This is the greatest comeback in the history of golf". As the Ryder Cup gears up this week, golf fans will undoubtedly find themselves glued to the TV when Tiger is competing.
