Checking out the PGA Tour leaderboard 2011 reveals that Tiger Woods is actually on the list as he competes in the Bridgestone Invitational. That’s right, Tiger is back to his sport of choice, and after a -2 on Day 1, golf fans are looking to see what’s next for Woods.
A review of the current PGA leaderboard shows that Woods is sitting way down the board in a three-way tie at #37. On Day 2, Tiger finished with a score of 71, after his Round 1 score of 68 had people talking early on. Still, Woods has noted how good it feels just to be back to the game. Only a few spots above Tiger on the leaderboard is another top-notch golf star, Phil Mickelson. Phil is currently at #29, tied with several others including Bo Van Pelt.
Currently at the top of the Bridgestone Invitational leaderboard, there’s a five-way tie, although one of the players has yet to finish the round. Ryan Moore, Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott, Keagan Bradley and Jason Day all are in a tie for the top spot. Day could become the sole leader should he do better than the 132 score the other four have after Round 2. Day may very well be annoyed if he gets that top spot and the focus continues to be on Tiger Woods, although it seems like Woods will get more spotlight as he improves on his game.
News site CNN.com reports that Tiger Woods hasn’t won a tournament in 628 days now, making for quite a dry spell for a guy considered best in the world before. CNN says Woods will need to start outdoing some of the younger golfers, including Rory McIlroy, to prove his comeback is something impressive. Tiger still ranks third all-time in PGA history with 71 PGA Tour victories. However, just seeing him back in action is a delight for his fans right now. He’ll look to make a charge up the leaderboard as the Bridgestone Invitational continues through the weekend.
