HOME TIGER WOODS Da vid Gorman Nevertheless, he continued to impress on Sunday with his athleticism, including one rip- roaring 2-iron over the green on the 3rd hole from 277 yards out which flew over the green. Woods' driving was excellent all week, albeit on a wide open course, but that will be his main take-away from the week. Woods drove it regularly over 300 yards, and like the good old days, was rock solid on the greens. He called his irons scratchy and some of his chipping led to calls of 'yips' but chipping against the Bermuda grain proved difficult for a number of players. Most of all, it was great to see Tiger Woods back in action, and that was reflected by the buzz that his return created. Seldom will there be more people watching golf in December than this weekend. The outstanding performance of Rickie Fowler on Sunday, an 11-under-par 61 that began with seven straight birdies, may have been inspired by a feeling to show Tiger who was boss. If Tiger continues his improvement into 2018, playing against the young guns could lead to some unforgettable finales next year. We can't wait.
