He's Baaaaccckkk!

Tiger won Jack Nicklaus' Memorial today.

He could play poorly after this win, like he did after winning Arnie's tournament in March. I suspect though that he'll contend at the US Open. This win was different. It reminded me of Tiger pre-scandal and the emasculation that followed.

His chip in at 16 was vintage Tiger. And the gallery responded by releasing roars that have been pent up for 2 1/2 years. Rory didn't have a chance after that.

And when he sunk the birdie putt on 18, it was Tiger announcing he was back. Good for him and good for golf. We all have felt the lull in the game since he's been absent from contention. Frankly it was painful to watch him play.

Here's to having an exciting US Open!
