I didn’t want to say it before the first round finished. I didn’t want to get attacked and called a “Tiger hater,” even though that’s never a good reason not to write and/or publish anything — more accurate would be “feel like.” I wanted to give him a chance. Now, only ONE official round has been posted for Tiger Woods in 2017, so…wait for it, GIVE HIM A CHANCE. It’s early! It’s only been one round! Let the guy get his feet under him and some reps before we’re too quick to write him off.

For the love of God. I’m in my seventh year at this, and trust me, I’ve been there and I know how it feels to hope and want something (or someone) to go back to what it once was SO badly because that nostalgia and that AWESOMENESS that went along with it was SO FREAKING GREAT.

Big news on the Tiger Woods front this week: Well, first of all, he’s making his 42nd comeback to competitive golf at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, where he’s won eight times — seven of these PGA Tour titles and one U.S. Open (on a broken leg!). This event is much more significant than that little tournament in the Bahamas with 17 people in the field, where Woods placed 15th, last month.

It will mark Woods’ return to the PGA Tour in 17 months after enduring several back surgeries and procedures in 2015. He says he feels different, though, and he’s also thrown in some new clubs into the bag — since his sponsor Nike Golf announced last year that it will no longer manufacture golf clubs.
