I’ll admit that after Tiger’s 66 on Friday I wanted to jump on the Tiger is back bandwagon. Yesterday his irons were very good, especially that shot on 15 where he had to hit a massive hook around the trees and made it to the green from well over 200 yards.
But the killer instinct on the greens and amazing putting we used to see from Tiger isn’t there. Yes his speed was good and his lines near perfect. But at Augusta National, near perfect putting isn’t good enough.
After shooting a deflating 74 yesterday, I finally believe I have the correct answer for anyone who asks if Tiger is back. “Yes, he is way back.”
