He Didn't Win But...

Tiger Woods has clearly turned a corner.

After a poor third round, he came out and shot a clean 3-under on his front nine, then scrambled to chop another two from par. His 5-under 67 had 2 bogeys, 5 birdies, and 1 eagle. With four groups left on the course he posted the low score in the clubhouse, 2 strokes better than anybody else there. I'm writing this before the tournament is quite finished, but it looks like Tiger will finish in solo 3rd, only 2 shots behind winner Greg Chalmers. And he did it on a day when most of the favored players crashed and burned.

No matter where you stand in the Tiger Woods debate, you have to admit that this was probably his best performance in the last two years. (Yes, even better than the Masters. He crumbled down the stretch in Augusta, but he finished strong in Australia.)

In the coming week I'm sure there will be no end to the dissection of his play, his swing, and his mental state. I'll be interested to see what the experts say, since most of their opinions up to this point have been critical of everything. But given what I've seen, both at the Frys.com and this week, I'd have to say that 2012 will probably be a pretty good year for Tiger.

I can't wait to see what he does at the Presidents Cup this week!
