Business as usual

Halfway into the tournament and the man is definitely back. At 6 under he rests steadily two shots off the pace, I bet eager to go into the weekend. All those that thought playing golf would be anywhere near an issue for the World number 1 after what he has been through clearly had no clue about what this man is made of. Ironically Sir Nick Faldo was one of those that predicted that competing at this level after having been away for such a long time would be difficult. That logic did not seem to apply to Mr Woods though.

It makes you wonder what kind of logic does apply to this guy. I saw the former Ryder Cup Captain Bernard Gallacher sit in the morning sofa on BBC the other day and say that “had this guy been any other member of Augusta GC (Champions automatically become members) he probably would have been thrown out of the club”.  Can anybody figure out why he wasn’t? Had Augusta, the PGA Tour or any golfing related organisation in the World had a Fabio Capello at the helm Woods would have been faced with a different situation. Now they don’t and while John Terry lost his England Captain’s shirt Woods is back at Augusta where HE thinks everything is back to normal.
