Tiger Woods won the Chevron World Challenge yesterday by one shot over Zach Johnson. It was Woods’ first win in over two years.
Make no mistake, this was not only a good start for Tiger, but a great start for golf.
Let’s be honest with something here – golf needs Tiger more than Tiger needs golf. Ratings for the last few major tournaments have suffered in Tiger’s absence/bad play. No one wants to tune in to see Rory McIlroy as much as they want to see Tiger.
More viewership = more eyes = more $$$. If Tiger continues to win or even stay competitive (top 5) going into the final round, golf – and the other golf players – would be eternally grateful.
Period, end of discussion.
