Woods finally gets his 'W' 30 months late

After 30 long scandal-ridden and injury-wracked months, Tiger Woods is back in the PGA Tour winner's bracket.

Once more at his near-dormant dominant best on Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Woods closed with a 2-under 70 for a five-shot win over Graeme McDowell.

Woods refused to acknowledge this as his first PGA Tour win in 923 days, dating to Sept. 13, 2009, at the BMW Championship. He counts the unofficial Chevron World Challgene last Decemeber.

 However, the relief of the win, over a strong field, and the sheer of dominance of the performance was a massive filip for the man chasing Jack Nicklaus' major record.

''It's not like winning a major championship or anything,'' Woods said. ''But it certainly feels really good.''

''I've gotten better, and that's the main thing,'' Woods said. ''I've been close for a number of tournaments now. And it was just a matter of staying the course and staying patient, keeping working on fine-tuning what we're doing. And here we are.''

It's also going to go a long way to getting him and the golfing world hyped up for next month's Masters, the first major of 2012.

"I am excited, no doubt," Woods said. "I'm looking forward to the momentum I've built here."

And so when people where wondering whether he'd even play again after his withdrawal from Doral with injury, we're now asking instead if this win is due to kick-off another period of Tiger dominance.

"He was a man on a mission today," caddie Joe LaCava said. "He was pretty jacked up. He was out there to prove himself."
