Tiger Woods made his greatest comeback statement to date by nearly stealing the 2018 PGA Championship on Sunday.

Tiger Woods had us all captured for a great part of the Sunday gold experience. Perhaps in the most overshadowed major victory in recent time—Brooks Koepka did win—Woods finished second by shooting a ridiculous final-round -64.

His front-nine 42 got him to within one stroke of the lead, but that bid for a 15th major victory fell short.


Still, the love the man still garners from the golfing public is beyond anything imaginable.

He finished -14 for the tournament.

It was vintage Sunday afternoon Tiger charge that probably would have succeeded if another few holes were tacked on to the final round of 18.

Now that Tiger’s putting a nice string together—a great PGA Championship after a glimmer of hope at the Open Championship—the PGA Tour can officially become excited.

Tiger Woods appears to be back.
