Digging deep after dunking his tee shot into the water on the 14th hole and squandering a two-shot lead in the process, Tiger Woods collected his thoughts and controlled his emotions down the stretch to win The Players Championship on Sunday.
Woods became the sixth player to win multiple Players titles in the tournament's 40 years, joining Hal Sutton, Fred Couples, Steve Elkington, Davis Love III and Jack Nicklaus, the only three-time winner.
Woods, who had a share of the lead with Garcia and David Lingmerth after 54 holes, has now won 51 of the 55 tournaments he's played when having at least a share of the lead after three rounds.
Woods now has 78 Tour titles, trailing just Sam Snead's all-time mark of 82.
I know I shouldn't connect certain dots but I can't help it. Tiger Woods has an incredible work ethic. He's a golfing prodigy playing seriously even as a toddler. But every elite athlete has that extra something that takes their game to the next level and for Tiger I believe its blonde white women. Specifically being in a relationship with a blonde white woman. Since the turn of the century major events in Tiger's career are marked by having some blonde chick he's involved with rooting for him at the sidelines when its crunch time. Peep the history of women Tiger was in a relationship with during his career mile-stones:
Dating Joanna Jagoda during the 2000 British Open
Tiger becomes the youngest winner of the career Grand Slam. Its rumored they broke up because he cheated on her with...
Elin Nordegren 2005 Masters. Tiger wins his fourth green jacket and ninth major title including this incredible iconic chip to seal the win.
Then the bad times hit. Tiger's marriage implodes amid a horrible cheating scandal and he goes into a career slide that would last for more than 2 years. Until recently that is when he reveals that he's dating the world ski champion and VERY blonde Lindsey Vonn and suddenly there's a turnaround in his game.
Lindsay Vonn at 2013 Players Tournament.This is fastest in any PGA TOUR season that Tiger Woods has ever reached four wins. Only other time he had 4 wins before June 1, 2000.
Yeah I know, more coincidence than anything, but that's a hell of a coincidence. Or maybe...just MAYBE blonde pussy is this dude's secret mojo.
