Hiligaynon - - Balitang’ Sports -

DAW isa ka fairy tale ang pagkampeon liwat ni Tiger Woods makaligad ang lima ka tuig. Sa karon, sia ang nagdaog kag nagkampeon sa Tour Championship sa East Lake Golf Club sa Atlanta, Georgia.

Si Woods nga karon 42 na ang panuigon, nangin 14-time major winner, nakahimo sang isa ka one-over par 71 agod maangkon anng kampeonato sa 80th PGA Tour Title sa iya dalayawon nga career.

Si Woods, nga nakatapos sa11-under par aggregate 269, nakahayaw sang duha niya ka mga kamot bangod sa kalipay matapos ang iya kadalag-an, samtang nagahinugyaw naman ang linibo niya nga mga fans. Siling ni Woods, sobra ang iya emosyon matapos ang hampang.

“I was having a hard time not crying coming up the last hole,” siling ni Woods nga ang ulihi niya nga pagdaog amo ang sa 2013 WGC-Bridestone invitational.

“I keep saying ‘Hey, I could still play this out of bounds.’ But once I got the ball on the green I gave (caddie) Joey (LaCava) a high five because I knew it was done.”

Isa ini ka emotional finale sa diin nagbalik si Woods sa highest level matapos nga sadto napinsar niya nga ayhan indi na sia makahampang sang mahal niya nga sports nga golf.

“It was just a grind out there,” siling ni Woods matapos ang final round. “I loved every bit of it. The fight, the grind, the tough conditions.”

“To win it’s certainly up there with obviously all the major championships I’ve won, Players, World Golf Championships but then this is under different circumsances.”

“I just didn’t know whether this would ever happen again. If I could somehow piece together a golf swing this year, I felt like I could do it…somehow I’ve been able to do that, and here we are.”

Gin-aku man ni Wood nga daw matulo ang iya luha sa final green samtang ginahandaan niya ang par putt agod kumpletohon ang pagdaog.

“I realized all of a sudden I was going to win the tournament,” siling ni Woods. (AFP)
