Tiger Woods Makes Cut at CordeValle Open and Shows Improvement

Jeff Rude writes at that Tiger shows glimpses of his old self, via The Huffington Post at Tiger Woods At Open: Round 2 Improvements Help Woods Make Cut

He broke the course record in training at CordeValle  by shooting a 62, so there is no doubt that Woods has his golf game back, but  it is the mental part -- playing in competition again and getting his old golf self back in front of the galleries, not all of whom are as partial to him as they once were -- that still needs improvement, and that will take a while.

Essentially, Tiger needs a win to get back on track, but he won't win until he gets back on track mentally. That is always the double-edged sword. When Tiger starts having fun out on the golf course again in spite of occasional boos and signs of ill will, then he will win. After all, golfing is not about galleries, it is about golf.
