I'm reading a lot of negative comments on social media on about Tiger Woods comeback at the Hero World Challenge but for me there was nothing but positives for both him and the game of golf.

Tiger Woods says son Charlie can wreak any havoc as long as he doesn't touch his Scotty putter!
Before the event I said, for Tiger to come out the other side healthy and having shows flashes of brilliance, would be a great result.  And he did both.

Winner Hideki summed it up best.

“Only Tiger could take a year and a half off and put up the numbers that he’s putting up this week,” Matsuyama said. “I don’t care how many strokes I’m leading over him, I still worry about him, fear him.”
Woods spoke of the process of returning afterwards and it made me wince just listening.

The Tiger comeback was also interesting for the equipment in his bag, especially his old Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS that won 13 of his 14 Majors. When did decide to  put it back in the bag?

“The day that we (Nike) were no longer a part of the hard goods side,” Woods said!

Tiger said that the putter had been in his garage with the terrylium putter that won the 97 Masters and that they were the only two clubs that son Charlie was not allowed to play with!

“They sit next to each other,” Woods said Tuesday. “Touch any putter, do anything you want with any other putter. These putters are off-limits. These two … only Daddy.”
