Golf – like life – tests your spirit as well as your strength and skill. And as I watched Tiger Woods come up a stroke short in the Valspar Championship on Sunday, I wondered if he can still pass that test.
There was no doubt about his body. He’s ripped. No doubt about his skill. He swung beautifully and he knew where his ball was going. In his signature red shirt and black slacks, he looked a lot like the Tiger of Old.
On Sunday afternoon, the whole world must have held its breath as Tiger turned for home just a couple of strokes behind leader Paul Casey. And the suspense built as he made one par after another, still just two strokes behind. This was the kind of drama he once lived for. Surely he would not fail his fans now!
