Tiger Back on the Prowl?
 
After a rough start to his year in Abu Dhabi two weeks ago, Tiger Woods bounced back in grand fashion to claim his 75th PGA Tour title winning the Farmer's Insurance Open on Monday. The win marks the 8th time Tiger has won at Torry Pines.

He won like he did in the old days. Get the lead early, crush the par 5's and cruise to victory.

"I drove the ball beautifully all week," said Woods. "My short game has been coming around. It came around at the end of last season, and you're not going to hit every par 5 in two, but you need to get up and down, and I did that this week. I feel comfortable here."

For Woods the four stroke victory is his fourth win in past 18 tournaments dating back to his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational a year ago.

"My short game was back to how I know it can be. My shots that I hit, especially out of these nasty little lies, I hit some really good ones this week. And that allowed me to save some pars, save some birdies and move my way up the board, and basically that's what I did."

So Woods thinks the Tiger of old is back. But is it a case of Tiger going to a course that might be his biggest comfort-zone in golf in Torry Pines, or is this the turning point for a player who has not won a major since the 2008 U.S Open at the same Torry Pines course?

The real answer will come in April at the Masters where Tiger has not taken home the Green Jacket in eight years.

What do you think? Is Tiger back or is this just a flash from the past?
