Tiger Woods, the greatest golfer who has ever lived. Most people say what he did on Augusta in April of 2019 was the greatest comeback in sports history.
Previously, Tiger had gone through four back surgeries and personal scandals that lead him to rock bottom. Tiger hadn’t won a major in quite some time. The world thought it was over for Tiger Woods. Most people would have given up. Most people would have been content with what they accomplished and retired.
Not Tiger. Your talking about a man who won the U.S. Open in 2008 with a fractured knee. Keep in mind, the U.S. Open is one of the hardest courses in all of majors golf. He didn’t care. He wanted to win so badly that he did whatever it took.
Leading up to the 2019 Masters tournament Tiger had surprised the world by having back-to-back top six finishes at the British Open and PGA Championship. This gave him a shot at another Major trophy.
Nobody thought that he had a shot in the Masters tournament. With all the new up and coming players most people thought there was no shot. But Tiger did what Tiger does best. He decided he wanted to win.
Tiger Woods went on to shoot: 70 R1, 68 R2, 67 R3, 70 R4. For a total score of 13 under par. He did what he desired to do. All he wanted in those moments was to be a winner, and a winner and champion he once again became.

I really liked reading your blog post from this week. I don’t really know much about golf, I have heard of Tiger Woods but never paid much attention. This blog helped me understand why he is so well known! Good job!
This is a great motivational piece on Tiger Wood’s comeback story. Not knowing a lot about the golf world, I definitely know who Tiger Woods is but I didn’t know anything about his recent achievements. For all I know, he could’ve retired. I appreciated learning that he’s still doing what he does best!
