His stunning return to golf’s major highs thrills as much for him sticking it to the old guard as it did for pure sporting spectacle
As someone who cried at Tiger Woods’s spectacular Masters victory on Sunday – having spent years waiting for it and much of the weekend shouting quite unprintable forms of encouragement at the TV – I urge hard-headedness about some of the reaction.
Although I have limited myself to reading just the 587-odd articles about it all, it’s hard not to spot certain common themes. By far the most dominant is the idea that this is a story of redemption – that Tiger Woods has, in some not-entirely-explained way, become a morally better man than he was, and that that is a big part of why he is winning again.
