I for one am extremely gratified by the return of Tiger Woods to competition. I don’t usually follow the PGA Tour every week, but while he was gone I didn’t follow it at all. While I think he certainly sets the standard for excellence in golf he is by no means the only golfer I like to watch play. I think the reason that I didn’t follow golf in his absense is that wins by other players, without Tiger in the field, mean less. In any case, with Tiger now back, and in winning form, I can get back to enjoying his masterful performances, and the masterful performances of the players that occasionally rise to the challenge and beat him.
