Tiger Woods Wins Arnold Palmer Invitational
ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) – Sunday was a big day for Tiger Woods.
Two weeks after another injury scare, and two days before his former coach’s book goes on sale, Woods looked dominant as ever Sunday as he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando.
It was his first PGA Tour victory since a sex scandal at the end of 2009 led to one of the greatest downfalls in sports. And with the Masters only two weeks away, Woods looks more capable of ever than resuming his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus in the majors.
Woods closed with a 2-under 70 for a five-shot win over Graeme McDowell.
The question two weeks ago was when he could play again. Now, it’s whether he can rule the sport like he once did.
