His irons are sublime, his driver for the most part long and straight.
If we’ve learned anything from his latest comeback, Tiger Woods can still putt a bit, too.
A decade ago that would have made him the overwhelming pick to win the U.S. Open. Heck, a decade ago he won the U.S. Open basically on one leg for what, incredibly enough, was his last major championship win.
But as Woods docks his yacht near Shinnecock Hills this week, he’s still a golfing enigma of sorts. His scores are decent, if not spectacular, but he’s yet to win and has only been in serious contention once in nine tournaments this year.
Is the real Tiger finally back?
