• Woods: ‘Eventually I was going to put all the pieces together’
Tiger Woods relished this Sawgrass Saturday just as much as those desperate for the 14-times major winner to approach anything like his former self. Maybe all parties needed it; until now, fevered hype around the American amid his latest return from back surgery had not been endorsed by results. Actions will always speak louder than the upbeat words consistently offered by Woods.
A seven-under-par 65 was the highlight of the 42-year-old’s season thus far. The scale of reaction as Woods was in the middle of his charge only served to highlight once again what impact he has on a sport that not so long ago looked like it may have to resign itself to life without him.
