Tiger Woods shot a 62 at the Honda Classic on Sunday, his lowest score in 2½ years thanks to two eagles that challenged the current world’s No. 1 golfer Rory McIlroy.
Woods started the tournament nine shots behind McIlroy and ended the day one-shot behind after knocking a 5-iron 216 yards and then sinking an 8 foot eagle shot.
Speaking after the round Woods revealed:
“It’s just building. I was putting together the pieces each and every day. I wasn’t that far off, and it was just kind of building. I had a great time out there. … I’ve been hitting it like this, that’s the thing. When it got windy out there early today, I thought I hit it well late last year in Oz (Australia), same kind of condition. No reason I can’t do it again today. It all came together.”
The round comes after Tiger Woods started the tournament suffering with both putting and hitting close to the pin in clutch situations, however after making just one birdie through the first three rounds he eagled both par-5s on Sunday and added four birdies to reach his lowest score since the 2009 BMW Championship.
The score was also Woods’ lowest ever in a final round.
At the time of this posting Rory McIlroy is -12 through 17 holes for a 2-point lead over Tiger Woods.
Do you think Tiger Woods is starting to get his game back or is he just having one good tournament amid several years of really poor play?
