    Drought over for Tiger?

    Tiger has a 4 shot lead heading into the final round of the Chevron World Challenge. He hasn't won yet, but I watched the entire round yesterday and I have seen Tiger look that good in years, even when he was still winning a couple of years ago. He was throwing darts with his irons, hitting the fairway with his driver, and making putts.

    It will be interesting to see how well it holds up under Sunday pressure, but he looks like a different guy.

    This is turning into quite the duel between Tiger and McDowell. G-Mac gets three birdies in a row, then when it looks like he's going to get even, Tiger sinks a long putt for par. The next hole, same thing, but this one was an even tougher putt and Tiger nails it while McDowell had a tap in.

    Now they've both stuck their approaches to the next hole. McDowell is giving him everything he can handle, but Tiger is still up by a shot.

    I've only watched today and I think you're right about him being back. I hope so I like golf more when he's really good.

    Without Tiger, golf is a snoozefest for me (excluding Ryder Cup... always love that no matter who is playing). Hope he starts making things interesting again (on the course that is).

    If Tiger is able to overcome that double bogey and still win this thing, he's back.

    Yeah, that double bogey was ugly.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the old Tiger is back as far as his antics when he hits a bad shot, too. Grow up, Tiger. Stop acting like a spoiled child.

    Nah, it's time for him to unleash his inner McEnroe.

    He's got the beard now, it's doppleganger time.

    He's a million times more interesting now than he ever was before.

    And he's gonna kick butt with a furious vengance in the months to come.

    I think you're right about his butt kicking next year. But I certainly don't want to see his inner McEnroe.

    Is that really you? Whatever happened to non-judgmental awareness? Or serenity now? Or letting go?

    Re: Drought over for Tiger?

    Uh oh, Macdowell is in big trouble off the #17 tee and Tiger in good shape. Looking like it's going to go to #18 tied up, unless G-Mac pulls off a miracle.

    As an aside, I really like Macdowell. He gets the most out of his ability and he has some real grit. He reminds me of Paddy Harrington.

    Macdowell had to take an unplayable, so looks like Tiger will have a lead on the 18th tee.

    I guess Tiger still hasn't lost his ability to make others rumble in his presence down the stretch. Macdowell has been the epitome of consistent in his play this year and this week. He's got a lead on Tiger with two holes to go and he doesn't just hit a poor shot, he hits an awful one that's going to make him lucky to walk away with a double. The Tiger effect is still strong it seems.

    Terrible tee shot that you attribute to the Tiger effect.

    What caused the soon-after 20 ft putt to drop though. Discussion in here has been silent on that.

    Look, this was a nice final day of the tournament thanks to Tiger being involved. But let's not give the guy too much credit when ever an opponent hits a horrid shot.

    Yes, I said as much a few posts later.

    When it happened, it had all the markings of what we've seen time and time again. Someone is paired up with Tiger in the final round and they wind up imploding down the stretch. McDowell had been playing consistently the entire tournament and all day Sunday. He missed some shots as is inevitable, but he comlpetely lost that one left in big trouble with 2 holes left and a lead.

    I'd seen that movie before. But to his credit, he regrouped immediately, made a spectacular up and down followed by two straight birdies with everything on the line. Clearly he was not intimidated. But when it happened, it sure looked familiar.

    Mcdowell with an unbelievable up and down to walk away with a bogey. Tied heading to #18.
