Tiger Reclaims Number One
A fantastic effort by Rickie Fowler to try and catch Tiger Woods went right down the drain yesterday, “literally.”
Fowler cut Tigers lead to a mere two strokes after 15 holes and found the fairway on 16 while Tiger landed in the same fairway bunker he hit on Saturday. That bunker shot led to Tiger hitting his next shot in the water. Tiger bogeyed the hole on Saturday.
However, history never guarantees future performance and yesterday proved that. Yesterday Tiger hit the green from that fairway bunker on the par five, sixteenth, setting up an easy two putt for birdie. Fowler on the other hand hit his second and fourth shots into the water which all but destroyed any chance he had of catching Tiger over the last three holes. Fowler ended up taking a triple bogey which cost him the first runner-up position.
When the World Rankings are re-calculated, Tiger on the strength of his two stroke victory over fifth ranked, Justin Rose, will have overtaken Rory McIlroy as the World’s Number One Ranked Golfer. Golf Quick Fix already named Tiger the number one player in the world on Saturday, having already nailed down two wins in2013 before yesterday and looking like “Tiger Woods” in his prime doing so.
