Tiger had it in spades yesterday. After a brilliant birdie on #16 - which looked like flying from New York to Denver via Dallas (think geography) and uncharacteristically faltering with bogeys on #17 and #18 Tiger grabbed the championship with a huge, daring putt on the first playoff hole. It was an 18 footer but on a downslope. What was really impressive about putt was its speed when it went in - if it had missed Woods could easily have had a 10+ foot putt to salvage the Championship. Unlike several holes earlier when he left a similar putt 4 feet short, Tiger went for the win.
