Tiger Makes a Comeback


Jackson Teague, Editor

  Fourteen years. That is how long it has been since Tiger Woods last won a Masters. In that time the Burj Khalifia, in Dubai, has become the world’s tallest tower, Barack Obama began his first term of presidency, Steve Jobs died, Osama Bin Laden was killed by Navy Seals. However, one thing that did not change was Tiger Woods’ determination to prove that his career was not on the downward spiral. That he was not a washed-up athlete anymore and he could still compete with the best of them.

   There was an $11,500,000 purse for winning the Masters Tournament and 100 players were looking to try and capture the prize. It took place over a span of four days and many put on a great showing and kept the tournament competitive and interesting. Before the tournament even began Tiger was in eighth place as a favorite to win the tournament, but he surpassed the odds and showed the world that he wasn’t just a washed up has been golfer. Tiger proved to us all that no matter what has happened in the past, no matter how long it has been since our last success, we can always strive for more.
