Golf World (UK) - - THE SPIN -

I know we’ve been here be­fore and had our hopes dashed, but how I hope the sight of Tiger Woods fit and in con­tention at the Hero Chal­lenge was a sign of things to come and not just an­other false dawn.

The ar­rival of Justin Thomas, Jor­dan Spi­eth, Jon Rahm and the other new gen­er­a­tion has been wel­come and makes 2018 in­trigu­ing, par­tic­u­larly when you add in Dustin John­son, a hope­fully re­ju­ve­nated Rory and the likes of Hideki Mat­suyama. But the game has been miss­ing some­thing with Tiger out in­jured. If fully fit, his pres­ence in the field el­e­vates the game to a whole dif­fer­ent level and makes the world stop to watch.

Only time will tell if he’s back to the Tiger of his prime and if the £50 I’ve had on him for the Masters is money down the drain! James De­laney, Email

Tiger roared again at the Hero Chal­lenge. But is he gen­uinely back to the man we knew be­fore?
