It’s a happy time for Tiger Woods. One can only imagine how excited the man could be at this moment in his life. On Monday, March 25, 2013, Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational and returned to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time since October 2010. This win ends his longest losing streak. In recent times, not only has Woods been having trouble in his personal life, but also his health.
After issues with his back, left knee and Achilles tendon, Woods says for him, getting healthy was the first step to playing the game at a high level. “Once I got there, then my game turned. “It’s taken me a little while. I think I had to get physically strong enough and physically healthy enough to do it.”
On his win, Woods says, “It’s a byproduct of hard work, patience and getting back to winning golf tournaments.”
He has had two other wins this year, the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines and the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Next is the Masters, where Woods will try to end his five-year drought in the majors. “I’m really excited about the rest of this year,” Woods said.
