It’s been over four months since we last saw Tiger on the course, so it’s only fitting that his “return” to golf be at the site of one of his most dramatic wins, Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, California. Where a mere 120 days ago Tiger beat Rocco Mediate in an 18 hole, Monday playoff, while suffering from torn knee ligaments and a double stress fracture of the leg.
This trip to Torrey, however, Tiger didn’t even bring his clubs. He was there to caddy for the winner of the “Tee off With Tiger” contest sponsored by Buick, where the man, himself, TW caddies 9 holes for one lucky winner. 59-year-old John Abel just happened to be that guy and what a memorable day that must have been. I’m jealous just thinking about it. Read the rest of the story here.
