Is Tiger Back in Good Graces?

Posted: Updated:

It's been almost 3 years since Tiger Woods crashed his car outside his Florida mansion- we all know what happened after that. Arguably the most popular figure in all of sports went through a divorce, lost sponsorships, and went on the longest winless streak of his career. 

2012 has been a good year on the course for Tiger.  Three wins and 8 top-10 finishes in just 18 events played has him sitting 2nd in the Fed-Ex Cup Standings with just one tournament to go. Woods trails only Rory McIlroy in the Official World Golf Rankings.  The only thing eluding Tiger, a major championship this year.

I watch a lot of golf, perhaps too much.  But as a player (kinda) and fan of the game, I must admit things are just more exciting when Tiger is in the mix on the weekend.  Why is that?  I can't quite put a finger on the answer to that question. 

I mean, the guy cheated on his wife (numerous times allegedly), is often smug to the media at press conferences (which I take offense to) and isn't exactly a gentleman on the course at times in what's supposed to be a "gentleman's game"- still I root for him!

So is Tiger back in good graces in the court of public opinion- or is it just me?
