OPENING SHOT

Here's the thing about Tiger Woods' apparent resurrection, which we can assume all fans of the Striped One are giddy about: Even if you don't like Woods on a personal level. Even if you don't care to see him win again and you find his gravitational pull of all golf media coverage odious, you have to be happy that we appear to have closed the book on the most annoying and tedious chapter of the Tiger Woods Saga. I'm speaking, of course, about the endless discussion of microdiscectomies, spinal fusion, and pain pill regimens...about the start-stop-surgery-start again course of, what, at least the last five years of Woods' career (and all the compromised golf swings therein). Praise the golf gods, we can focus on Woods the golfer exclusively.
