At Carnoustie it was Woods who stumbled on the back nine while leading. Couldn't sleep. Couldn't walk.
"Tiger is back & will be winning Majors again!"
"I had serious doubts after what transpired a couple years ago", Woods said. I still don't think Woods' comeback, even now, should count as the greatest ever, and I think we throw around phrases like "greatest ever" so often that we strip them of their meaning.
"It has come full circle", Woods said. "Just the whole tournament has meant so much to me over the years". "The body's not the same as it was a long time ago, but I still have good hands". Does it sting? Sure it stings, but it's just part of the business.
"I'm proud of kind of the progress I made, sticking to kind of the process", he continued.
Racing to finish before an oncoming thunderstorm, players created their own electric atmosphere, spectators roaring repeatedly for sensational shotmaking on one of golf's iconic stages.

As well as becoming the first Italian to win a major championship, Molinari won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, his first PGA Tour title in the Quicken Loans National - a tournament hosted by Woods - and he became the first European to compile a ideal 5-0 record in the Ryder Cup.
"It's nice to see his story, his comeback, and to be a witness in the first person", Molinari said. Maybe, maybe not. But right now, it's a little soon. If that's not a bro move, then I don't know what is. Prior to my comeback, they only knew that golf caused me a lot of pain.
Found asleep at the wheel of his vehicle at the side of a road in Palm Beach, Florida, pictures and dashcam video of a confused and disoriented Woods were flashed around the world.
Last year, Schauffele tied for 50th in the Masters, and in the summer tied for sixth in the U.S. Open and second in the British Open where Woods also contended in a win by Molinari.
Woods never missed a shot that mattered over the final seven holes, taking the lead with a 5-iron to the fat of the green on the par-5 15th for a two-putt birdie, delivering the knockout with an 8-iron that rode down the ridge by the cup and settled 2 feet away for birdie on the par-3 16th.
It is not hyperbole to say that the rest of this year's majors run through the Cat.
