Tiger Woods’ comeback took another immortalizing turn.
Woods prevailed in the weather-delayed final round of the Zozo Championship in Chiba by three strokes after once again rebounding from a surgery. Woods underwent a fifth procedure on his left knee two months ago, and it’s his first tournament since then, according to Golfweek.
So that’s four back surgeries, five knee operations and a few personal problems as well, the golf site counted. And he’s still winning.
The golf world saluted him.
I think @TigerWoods put it well after the @zozochamp when he said that the body doesn’t allow him to do what he once did, but he can still think his way around a golf course. Congrats my friend! I wish I could shake your hand today, but I’m not sure I could get there in time.?

When Tiger Woods is healthy, he’s still the best golfer in the world, even at 43, with all the injuries, all the adversity, just try to wrap your mind around that. Quite incredible.

683 weeks at no. 1 is pretty impressive. 82 is impressive. 15 majors is impressive. Let’s just say Tiger is impressive. He is the GOAT. Golf is not the same when he is not playing.
