Interesting Facts about Tiger’s Win at Memorial
Most people that have an interest in golf are aware of Tiger's awesome close out performance last week at The Memorial. He shot a final round of 69 which included a narley chip in on the par 5 11th, and resulted in an overall score of 12 under 276. This was enough to propel him to the winers circle, beating out Jim Furyk by only one shot.
After the win, Jack Nicklaus made the comments "it may be his best driving tournament." Then to Tiger, "you found your swing." If anything, these quotations were understated. On Sunday Woods hit 14 of 14 fairways and has never looked better of the tee! Another interesting fact is that before the tournament, Tiger changed his driver to a 10.5 degree. Doesn't seem to have a sensical correlation to his accuracy improvement, but it's definitely a change that should be noted. Either way, his final round performance completely silences the ideas that he should drop the Nike driver for something else. If he can keep this 10.5 degree Nike driver in the fairway, there's no doubting that he will be unstoppable.
