Still recovering for surgery, still not swinging

Still recovering from surgery, still not swinging

Tiger Woods is getting really good at video games. Unfortunately, what he’s not doing is hitting golf balls with a full swing. It’s been seven weeks since Woods endured surgery to alleviate a pinched nerve in his back and he still doesn’t have a set return date to when he’ll be ready to return to competitive golf — or simply regular practice, for that matter.

Although Tiger Woods was forced to withdraw from the AT&T National, the event that benefits his foundation, he’s still been on hand this week at Congressional Country Club playing host duties.

Woods, who appeared more forthcoming about his elbow injury, pushed it “pretty good” the other week during the U.S. Open and wouldn’t go as far to say he would be completely healed in time for the Open Championship at Muirfield in three weeks, according to multiple reports

Tiger doing his best Phil impression

Tiger doing his best Phil impression

Considering he’s not playing in a tournament this week, Tiger Woods sure has made a ton of headlines already. Between hanging out with his kids and girlfriend Lindsey Vonn and hosting charity events, Woods even squeezed in a press conference for his tournament, the AT&T National, on Monday morning at Congressional.

Let’s start with the stuff you care about most — Tiger vs. Sergio saga. In the latest episode of The Real Housewives of the PGA Tour, Tiger was asked if he had reached out to Sergio to mend things instead of relaying comments through the press. The answer was straightforward and simple: “No.”

Fans <3 Tiger

There are two — maybe three or four — players that move the needle: Tiger Woods, John Daly, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy. This has been my conclusion from the sizes of galleries I’ve witnessed at tournaments and from the numbers (traffic) I receive on my site in response to posts on these individuals.

So it’s no surprise that CBS ratings for the final round of the AT&T National increased by 188% compared to last year — Tiger didn’t play in ’11 due to injury. The media blast via CBS Sports:

Take that, biatches!

Last year at Congressional Country Club, it was Rory McIlroy capturing the U.S. Open in record-breaking fashion. This time around it was Tiger Woods winning the 2012 AT&T National to record his 74th PGA Tour victory and passing Jack Nicklaus’ all-time career win list.

I had a feeling this was going to be an interesting week. It was actually mostly eerie, but I swear, I said on Thursday or Friday that Tiger would snag his third win of the season — that’s 3 in his last 7 starts, no less. I’m mostly just thrilled that I started him in my Fantasy Golf lineup. Bonus points!

Now here's something you don't see every day...or ever: Tiger teeing off with only a dozen or two in the stands!

Despite doctor’s orders to rest my ankle, I couldn’t help but hike out to walk with Tiger Woods for the last five holes in the third round of the AT&T National at Congressional.

Due to the substantial damage caused by the “Derecho” storm on Friday night, tournament organizers closed the course to fans and non-essential volunteers (which, of course, was unfortunate, but in the best interest of safety).

It was already strange driving in the gates and past the range with hardly a person in sight, but I’ve seen similar scenarios at smaller PGA Tour events on a Monday. What I’d never ever seen — and may never see again — was Tiger playing a competitive round at a Tour event without a massive horde.

A fierce storm tore through the DC area and hit Congressional hard on Friday night

The maintenance workers and clean-up crew at Congressional Country Club deserve a huge round of applause for preparing the storm-ravaged golf course in time for golfers to complete Saturday’s third round.

Just after 10pm on Friday evening, a fierce thunderstorm called a “Derecho,” which originated in the Chicago area, wreaked havoc in the nation’s capital. The storm goes at least 250 miles with winds at least 58 miles per hour or greater. In the Bethesda, Maryland, area, gusts reached 80mph.
