Freshly Divorced Tiger Woods Plays Best Round of the Year

Tiger Woods has a share of the lead after shooting his best round of the year at The Barclays just days after his divorce from Elin Nordegren became final.

When asked whether finalizing the divorce lifted a burden off his shoulders, Woods replied,

“I can’t really say that’s the case.”

But something is definitely different. Woods shot a 65 (that’s good) complete with seven birdies (that’s fantastic) to post his best round of the year as well as finish with a share of the lead for the first time since the Australian Masters last November 15, a tournament he won. Less than two weeks later, “Tigergate” broke wide open, and his golf game hasn’t been the same since.

“It feels good to be able to control my ball all day like this,” Woods told the media.

Is it a coincidence that Tiger is back to his old self? Tell us in the comments section.
