Just as they have everyday since Tiger Woods left the top position in professional golf, all eyes were on Tiger Woods today as he stepped out onto the course for the first time in three months. The golf player, who hasn’t been performing up to standard since his Thanksgiving day professional and personal crash in 2009, is scheduled to compete this weekend at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. The event is the first time since the former number one will enter the course since unexpectedly firing his longtime caddie, and a mere 12 weeks since his sprained left knee and Achilles tendon.
We’ve seen Woods come back from the depths of golf despair before, but can he pull it off this time?

From what the experts are saying, you can expect nothing but the best from Woods this weekend - the golf pro wouldn’t tarnish his name in order to play such a small championship like the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Woods doesn’t have anywhere to go but up, say most, but if he can pull off a traditional down-to-the-wire win like so many of his fans are expecting, his game might really start to impress everyone.
The cocky player, who has been media cool for years, didn’t offer any advances into where he expects the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational might leave him – though defending championship Hunter Mahan played with the veteran champ and proclaimed Woods to be in tip-top shape. Considering that the course is a particularly familiar one, being that Woods has won it several times and never scraped belong 4th until last year, he’s likely to surprise us all.
