The Tiger fist-pump is back!

By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard at least five times that trailing by one shot with two to play, Tiger Woods rolled in birdie putts from 15 and 6 feet to beat Zach Johnson — who missed his 12 footer that would have forced a playoff — by one and notched his first victory in more than two years.

I was in between interviews with guys at Q-school finals after the fifth of six rounds when my phone exploded with texts, e-mails, tweets, Facebook updates, etc. (you know, the works) with the big news (or a big interruption). All’s right in the world! Now, this begs the inevitable question: Is he back? Well, Tiger put it best with the help of LL Cool J…

Tiger: Flipping the club

Tough winds at Sherwood Country Club wreaked havoc in the third round of the Chevron World Challenge. The swirling and gusting conditions baffled 36-hole leader and tournament host Tiger Woods and nearly everyone else in the field. Zach Johnson was among the handful of players that minimized the damage. In fact, the 2008 Masters champ had a pretty special day, including a hole out from the 18th fairway for eagle to post a four-under 68 and take a one-shot lead.

Tiger's in driver's seat, no hydrants in sight

Tiger Woods fired a five-under 67 on Friday to take a three-shot lead over K.J. Choi and Matt Kuchar at the halfway mark at the Chevron World Challenge, the limited field, money-grab event that benefits his foundation. It’s the second stroke play tournament in a row where Tiger has been atop the leaderboard through 36 holes.

Last month at the Australian Open, he had a one-shot advantage going into the weekend, but shot a third-round 75 and bounced back the last day to place third.

Tiger and Stricks: Adorable!

K.J. Choi didn’t waste any time in the first round of the Chevron World Challenge, firing off five birdies in the first five holes — just before the Santa Ana winds let loose at Sherwood Country Club. Tiger Woods picked up where he left off in the Down Under, starting strong by rolling in four birdies in the first five, as well. Then, the conditions toughened and the comfortable breeze turned into swirling gusts up to 30mph, throwing Tiger off his game a bit.

Tiger: I was shaping my shots at all different trajs in Oz

It seems slightly ridiculous that something so mundane could be so telling about a person’s mood or state of mind. In this case I’m referring to Tiger Woods throwing in a bit of self-deprecating humor during his press conference at the Chevron World Challenge, the 18-player field with a $5-million purse, following Wednesday’s pro-am. Which usually indicates he’s in good spirits and feeling confident about his golf game.
