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
