The quest of American golf superstar Tiger Woods to go back to the top of the global golf ranking is still a work in progress. After starting strong in the Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio, Woods falters again in the succeeding rounds and eventually lose the prestigious tournament to Australian Adam Scott.
After missing three months with a leg injury, Woods finished a tournament for the first time since the Masters on April 10 and closed with a 70 to tie for 37th, 18 shots behind. Despite his loss in his first tournament since his injury, Woods remain optimistic of his chances to regaining back his standing as the premier professional golfer in the world.
Currently, Woods is outside the top 20 in golf ranking and needs to train and work even harder if he wants to stay on top of professional golf again. Scott for his part won his first world title in golf Scott and became the third Australian to win a world title, joining Geoff Ogilvy and Craig Parry. He won for the 18th time in his career and moved back into the top 10 in the world ranking.
Scott’s victory is considered intriguing since he won the event alongside Stevie Williams, his caddie who previously work for Woods. It can be recalled that Woods earlier fired Williams, his caddie for 12 years. The “firing decision” had yet to be fully accepted by Williams who felt betrayed by what the American golf superstar did to him.
Williams for his part felt vindicated by the win of Scott since it showed the world that he is a good caddie and is very instrumental in the rise of Woods to golf super-stardom in the past.
“I’ve caddied for 33 years — 145 wins now — and that’s the best win I’ve ever had,” Williams said. Internet data has shown that with Williams as his caddie, won 13 majors and 16 world titles among 72 wins worldwide. That includes the 2001 Masters, when Woods won an unprecedented fourth straight major. Woods is now focusing and training for the forthcoming PGA Championship and is very determined to win the crown and regain back his place in the top echelon in the sport of professional golf.
