Holy Cow, Files: Brandel Says "I was wrong" About Tiger

In his defense, Brandel Chamblee stated many times he hoped he was wrong and following Tiger's impressive Hero World Challenge comeback, the Golf Channel analyst has made a rare admission.

The superhuman power of Tiger Woods continues as the General Chairman of the Tiger Isn't Coming Back Society admits he now sees a way forward for the 14-time major winner.

Nice discussion here between Burr, Chamblee, Nobilo and Immelman.

Tiger never seemed to his Nike drivers as straight but that's probably a coincidence. I'm sticking w/ my Sasquatch hot from the Oven until the M's come down in price.

Don--
Thought has entered my mind as well
To be fair, it was finally coming together with his driving & a healthy knee in 2009
But then he chucked a swing he won 7 times with and had a 2 way miss ever since then
Until this week
I do believe equipment could play a small part, today's Bridgestone & TM are surely
Better on technology alone than anything Nike from 9 years ago
But mostly he's back bc his circa 04-09 on plane move is back
And of course he's healthy

He does his job well. He's provocative and provoking.

There was good reason for being a sceptic. It wasn't just the injury.

Clearly there was a physical issue, which seems fixed with the spinal fusion.. But the toxicology report demonstrated without doubt there was something else going on.

If he's healthy and clean, he's good to go. He wasn't out of place with Ryder Cup level completion, albeit pre-season. But anybody who knows anything about either his injury history, or the power of the painkillers he was taking, knows neither of those two issues are ever 100% givens.
Anyone else of the impression that Brandel believes the really big story is his admission and not Woods' return?

CroDad- +1. That made me chuckle!

Immelman (I believe) saying: his next tournament he'll not be the favorite, but the 2nd? Oh come on, on what planet are you living? Ya, he looks good, better than expected, I think most would agree, but...stop with the Tigerfication of golf announcements. He was great, he might be good in the future, but if one thinks one weekend...oh my, I"m tired of the hype already. He's done nothing other than play 72 holes without claiming pain. Good for him, but this wasn't a tour event. Can we just hold on a little bit?

Just got to reading a bit more, and Meefer - yep not a tour event, but OWGR points that will affect who's in and who's out of he top 50 and Augusta bound--or not.

Some things are just fixed besides spines. cut,pasted and posted
