It’s the only way to describe the ending of the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday March 16. With Bart Bryant putting the pressure on by finishing at nine under par, Tiger needed a birdie at the last to win the tournament. His approach left him twenty feet from the cup—a distance he had not holed from all week.
There was no way he was going to make that sliding, downhill shot. But he did. Of course.
While I still hold by my prediction that he won’t win the Masters, it’s becoming harder to believe it. With the way things are going for Tiger right now, anything is possible—even an undefeated season.
Was the putt a herald of destiny?
