Buying in on Tiger? Will Eli’s Benching Blowup in Giants’ Face? Freddie Coleman Has the Answers
Tiger Woods' return to competitive golf was a smashing success. For at least one day anyway. After 301 days on the sidelines, Tiger shot a 3 under, 69 in the first round of the Hero World Challenge; a tournament that includes eight of the world's top ten players.
Woods looked good off the tee, struggled with chipping but made some big putts to birdie or save par on his way to an impressive round that had me saying 'only Tiger.' But is that one round enough? How much do we need to see from the 14-time major champion before we jump on the "he's back!" bandwagon?
There are more questions than answers going into the weekend and they don't all revolve around Tiger Woods. What about the constant soap opera that is the Giants this season? Truthfully, the way the Giants handled the benching of Eli Manning, I hope it blows up in their collective face; Ben McAdoo, Jerry Reese and John Mara included. Win, lose, crash, burn, I'm only truly rooting for one thing: that the Giants aren't dense enough to ask Eli Manning to go into the game as a backup to save either Geno Smith or Davis Webb.
