Okay, so after watching Tiger at Torrey, what do you think?
I was not totally disappointed. First time back in a full field, in a year and a half, playing with two of the top players in the world (who admittedly were not on their game) and hanging with them for the most part. He didn't embarrass himself, though has lots of work to do. But he will be playing quite a bit over the next few months, so I believe he will continue to get more comfortable, sharpen his myriad of specialty skills (which are much more numerous than most players ever dream of having), and maybe even make a secret call to Butch, that no one will ever know about for sure, to help him straighten out his driver issues. Once he starts hitting fairways at a good rate, while in the meantime playing and getting all the rust off, I think we just might see him on the leaderboard, fighting his way to the top more regularly. Of course, much will depend on whether his back holds up. So far, so good. He certainly SEEMED like a much happier person. That's worth something.
I think, by the time the Masters is played, if he has no injury beforehand, he will be in the mix on the weekend. Hopefully, that includes the back nine on Sunday.
