So what are we to make of Tiger Woods waltzing away with the Farmers Insurance Open? Does this mean his five-year hiatus from winning major golf tournaments is about to end? Even with his drought he clearly drives golf.
While most people focus on Tiger's physical game, which of course is amazing in its own right, most people don't give enough credit to another very important part of his game: his mental toughness.
