Tiger gets his bite back, reaches No1 at Bay Hill

The sun is still rising in the east and setting in the west and once more Tiger Woods is back at golf's top spot, taking the mantle of World Golf Ranking's No1 away from previous incumbent Rory McIlroy.

Woods triumphed at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Monday to come full circle and put an end to his injury and private woes that have dogged him since that fateful period that has stretched back to 2009.

"I play well here, it's as simple as it gets," said Woods matter-of-factually, after winning yet again - his eighth time, in fact - at the Florida event.

"I'm very pleased with the way I'm playing. It was a by-product of hard work, patience and getting back to playing golf tournaments."

Finishing with a 2-under 70, Woods replicated the form he showed at Torrey Pines and Doral, closing ahead of Englishman Justin Rose by two strokes, and Rose was the closest anyone got all Sunday, and even if he didn't look like overhauling Woods.

His third PGA Tour win already this season, and in this kind of form, Woods doesn't look like slowing down anytime soon, especially now that he's back to his peak in both form and fitness.

"If I get healthy, I know I can play this game at a high level," Woods said.

"I know I can be where I'm contending in every event, contending in major championships and being consistent day in and day out - if I got healthy. That was the first step in the process. Once I got there, then my game turned."
