Tiger Woods is back to doing Tiger Woods things… like holing this 71-foot birdie putt on Thursday at Bay Hill to take sole possession of the early first-round lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. 

Woods, who was at 10-1 earlier this week behind Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, has replaced Johnson as the 8-1 favorite for the Masters. Johnson and Thomas are both now 9-1 with Jordan Spieth now at 12-1. This seems crazy, but his play over the last two weeks combined with his four green jackets and 13 top 10 finishes actually sort of justify it.  

I think the world is just a better place to live when Tiger Woods is playing great golf. The renewed energy for the sport of golf was much needed. There can only be one GOAT.
