Tiger Woods Breaks Course Record at The Medalist in Florida

It looks like Tiger Woods may be back. Woods broke the course record on Friday, Sept.30, at The Medalist, a Greg Norman design in Florida, shooting a 62 beating the previous record by two shots. He did it by posting a back-nine 29 that included 7 birdies.

Woods said, “…My training sessions are great. Strength has come back. My explosiveness has come back through my training, and now just trying to get my feels back, and it feels great.”

Shane Bacon for Yahoo Sports reports:

Yes, it was just a practice round of sorts and didn’t count for anything on the PGA Tour, but it’s still an impressive number by the former world number one.

What does this tell us about Tiger’s game? Well, not a lot really, because it wasn’t really a competition of sorts, but at least he’s producing scores on tough golf courses. I’ve heard from a couple LPGA friends of mine that Tiger has been asking just about anyone with a staff bag to tee it up in hopes of sharpening his game, and if that’s the case, bravo Tiger, because it seems to be working.

Also, don’t forget that in 1997, the week before the Masters, Tiger fired a 59 at Isleworth, so maybe there is a bit of a correlation between good play at home and good play on tour.

Woods has been winless since November 2009, and is scheduled to play at the Frys.com Open this coming Thursday, competing in his ninth PGA Tour event of the season and first since the PGA Championship.
