He won the Tour Championship and that gave him confidence he could win again. Now he has confidence that he can win a major again.
Watch out. He has a real shot at Jack right now. I still think it’s a long shot but he has Bethpage and Pebble coming up in the next few months. He could win either of those.
I believe they said this win puts him to 6th ranked in the world.
A #1 ranking and another major this year are all possible.
He has a shot. Yes. 3 to tie. But If I had to bet on whether he would win 3 more majors, I would say no (which means he will, lol).
He's so good at Augusta and his experience payed off today. They other thing was watching a staggering 4 players in contention choke on 12. Thats not to say Tiger didn't make his shots. He made the perfect, near perfect tee shot on 16. But if everyone else didn't choke on 12, who knows how it plays out.
Basically, when he wins, he won't win running away like he used to. Which will narrow the likelihood of him winning more often. I think the PGA is a wide open tournament, not too tough, so anyones best guess who wins there. The U.S. Open is borderline unfair at times. Can Tiger rebound when he misses a five foot putt and it rolls 50 yards off the front of the green? He could maneuver around a British Open course with his 3 wood well since some guys leave the driver at home for that tournament. But advantage Euros over there.
I will be very intrigued to see how he plays in the next three majors. All of which he will probably be the favorite in. But I do think it's more likely he ties Jack in Green Jackets (6, one more) than in majors (18, three more).
