Tiger follows his friend’s lead and takes care of business

Some of the Sports radio talk over the past week was bout the unique the friendship between Tiger Woods and Roger Federer. Both compete in individually and sit atop their respective sports. As birds of a feather flock together Federer opened the day early with a victory at Wimbledon to take his place as the winner of the most Grand Slam events in tennis history, and Tiger followed up in the afternoon with a win at the AT & T National. Although not a major it’s quickly becoming a prestigious tourney and with the exception of lefty several of the top in the world competed. Tiger overcame major issues with the 11th hole where he tallied a monster +5 for the four rounds. Omit that hole and Tiger wins going away, but it was there and so was Hunter Mahan, who was the clubhouse co-leader at -12 as Tiger had 7 holes to play. After laying up on his first par-5 to conservatively go for the birdie a bad third shot prevented him from getting his shot at a bird. However the 16th was good to him again as he sunk a 20footer (he would have over 100ft of made puts for the day) to provide the margin of victory. See the complete final leader board here. Ok, it’s his third win of year and all of them have come two weeks before a major but he hasn’t won one this year. Are we finally seeing chinks in the armor? Is Tiger 3.0 going to dominate as he has done in years past? Let us know here and in the PGA chat rooms.
