Tiger Woods loyalists have good reason to cheer, for the golfer remains in the hunt for his first big win since the s*x scandal that ripped his life apart at the end of 2009. Tiger had a share of the lead this weekend, and has made an outstanding showing for the first two days of the tournament. Some think this might be his chance to regain former glory.
A win at the US Open would be the 15th major title for Tiger, which has been tough for him to obtain. He is a far cry from the player he was back in 2000, when he won four major championships in a row. The tournament is tough for players, since the Olympic Club Golf course is giving players more than they can handle.
“This tournament, you’re just plodding along,” Woods said. “This is a different tournament. You have to stay patient, stay present, and you’re just playing for a lot of pars. This is not a tournament where we have to make a bunch of birdies.”
Woods is coming off his second win of the year at the Memorial and has finally found his game again. Woods won eight times in a row when sharing the lead going into the weekend at a major championship, but the streak ended in 2009 when YE Yang caught up with Woods and defeated him. Woods hasn’t been a serious contender for a major since that time.
