Tiger, are you kidding me??

We all know he's the best front-runner sports has ever seen. But Tiger Woods showed us all his relentless, intimidating will to win works pretty well when trailing, too. Woods smoked the unflappable Vijay Singh with a dazzling 63 on Monday in Boston to capture his fifth straight PGA Tour title. We are lucky to have the opportunity to see this.
So many have tried to minimize Woods' accomplishments by saying no one else makes anything happen to challenge him. Singh was under par Monday on one of the toughest golf courses the guys play all season.
Woods was 6 under after 7 holes. ABC commentator Paul Azinger said many of the players and caddies he talked to expressed to him that the front side may have been set up unfairly. Guess not.
Woods will be off until the Ryder Cup, which begins two weeks from Friday. Due to the tragedy of 9/11, the United States team team did not have Woods during his run of 2000-2001 (the Matches were postponed until 2002). The Europeans won't be that lucky this time around.
