Imagine that!  He won without Stevie winning it for him.

Since he got that "first" win and the monkey off his back, how many tournaments will he win in 2012?

I'll make a bold guess and say he'll win 5 or 6 tournaments in 2012.

Well we do have a thread for that somewhere I think.

Wow he finally wins again. It was good to see him play 4 good rounds. Looks like he finally has his head straight also.

I'll tell ya one thing, the Masters is going to be outstanding, I can't wait for all the drama to begin...

I personally kind of liked seeing Tiger choke on Sunday's for a change.  But I do concede he is great for golf.  I just don't want to see him run away from the field like back in the day.  Give me parity with Tiger playing well!

I really like [McDowell], and so do a lot of Americans I think.  I honestly think he may be more popular than Rory among Americans currently.

He's more popular among this American.

It's gonna be awesome.  I'm actually taking those days off of work so that I don't have to be distracted even while watching the online coverage.

And this one as well

Hope Arnie is okay.  I'm not too familiar with this tournament, but I was looking and wondering where he was when the final group was leaving the green.

It's a tradition that he greets the players as they come off 18, much as Byron Nelson did at his tournament. But since this is Tiger's seventh win at Bay Hill, he probably wasn't as disappointed about it as somebody like Bud Cauley would have been.

Yeah, that seemed like a surreal moment.  Anyway, congrats to him.  It kinda sucked that nobody stepped up to challenge the final group, and the back 9 seemed anti-climactic like a lot of Tiger wins do, but the front 9 was pretty entertaining.  Tiger really had his iron shots going and Graeme dropped a couple big bombs to keep it interesting.

Tiger seems like a snake with a lead and the competitors being the prey.  He smothers them with the lead, and just waits for each opportunity to tighten his grip on it as they make mistakes and he makes sure he doesn't.  His execution today was pretty damn good...a lot better than my execution with that metaphor

He played with the lead beautifully. When it got to the point when he knew he could par in & win he stopped firing at the pins & hit the proper shot for the situation. Very Nicklaus-like.

The swing held up, which is huge. And now he now knows he can win again. Watch out.

Most disappointed man today: Davis Love III. Winning Bay Hill jumped Tiger up to third Ryder Cup points, so now Davis has to put some thought into his captain's picks.
