Tiger Woods won again, for the 3rd time in seven starts this year, and 74th time on the PGA tour, passing Jack Nicklaus in the all-time PGA tour win list, as Farrell Evans reports for ESPN at
Tiger Woods triumphs again at AT&T National for 74th PGA Tour win.
With the win, Tiger passed Jack Nicklaus in the all-time PGA wins list.
Hey, Tiger is getting "better" again.
You can tell by the visibly much softer touch on putting and chipping,
which are what makes championships -- the short game has to be there.
More importantly for his long term health and golf, he appears to have regained his easy-going competitive "edge" while also recovering his "youthful" friendliness, cheery attitude and good spirits, a development which forecasts problems for his competitors in coming tournaments. Either you battle the golf course or the world, not both.
The younger generation of golfers is good and getting better all the time, but Woods is still in a class by himself -- when he has his act together, which has not been the case in recent years -- but that is a part of life.
None of us are demigods and we all have to go through various development periods as humans, and make mistakes. No one gets through without them.
His 3rd win this year is more than any other golf professional in 2012.
Woods still trails Sam Snead's 82 leading PGA tour wins, but that record may fall before Woods hits age 40. He will turn 37 on December 30, 2012.
If someone like the present writer can win a club golf championship at age 61 3/4, then Tiger still has a lot of wins left in his now 36-year old physique. In fact, if, as it appears, Tiger has matured emotionally through his personal problems, he will be more formidable than ever on the golf course.
So what do we know about golf to justify writing these things?

Sorry for the non-golf attire, shirt and suspenders, but it was very windy,
so I left my golf shirt in the clubhouse. No need to change for 20 balls. I will try to get a better video soon, when my game is in shape.
In any case, that was only my 3rd or 4th time out on the range at all this year, and I have not played a round of golf since last September.
So it looks like time to start again.
Hey, I'll be 66 in December
and still knock some drives beyond 300 yards.
2012 looks like a good golf year,
not just for Tiger.
