Five Shot Deficits Are Nothing When Your Name is Tiger

Tiger Woods is well known for coming through in the clutch, especially on the back nine of a Sunday Round. At the 2009 Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, Florida Tiger had some seriously clutch shots and played an amazing back nine, topping it off with a fifteen foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to win the match. And he did all this in his first big match since his knee surgery.

Sean O’Hair, a West Chester local and fan favorite in the Philadelphia area, had some very tough luck as he was defeated by one stroke after Tiger’s huge birdie putt. When Tiger sank the last putt, he and his caddy had a huge celebratory hug in the middle of the green, which really demonstrated the excitement and importance of this win.

After pulling off his comeback, a comeback which tied his largest ever come from behind win by overcoming a five stroke deficit, Tiger said “It feels good to back in contention, to feel the rush.” This was the third time Tiger Woods has clinched a victory at Bay Hill by sinking a birdie putt on the last hole of the last day. Now if your wondering if Tiger hit a hole in one during that tournament the answer is no. He does have 18 holes in one in his lifetime with the first one coming at age 6. It’s inevitable that he will have more, especially now that he is back in true Tiger Woods form!
