Is golf interesting again?

Is it me, or has it been a hell of a lot more exciting to watch the PGA Tour this weekend?

For the first time in a long time I cannot only hear the reaction of a crowd, but I can also feel the emotion that they are radiating. Quite frankly, it’s because of Tiger Woods.

Now I have not had the chance to look at television ratings yet, but I’m pretty sure that viewership is up a great deal. It is good to see him contend. Typically, I say it’s good to see him make a cut.

People are tuned in for one of two reasons. They either want to see Tiger succeed or fail. That’s it. It is one or the other. Jason Gore has been a quality player some time now, but no one is looking forward to watching his round.

This is the first time in a long time I actually planned a weekend around watching golf and one of my favorite athletes. Woods will be catapulted back into the main event picture he can pull this win off.

Can the guy in red and black make a come back? Do you want to see him win?
