After a horrendous first round (by Tiger’s standard) and a so so second round, Tiger came roaring back to win the 2008 Arnold Palmer Invitational in dramatic fashion. I am impressed with his skills, charisma, mental toughness and fighting spirit. Is Tiger the most dominant athlete ever? What do you think?

ORLANDO, Fla. (March 16) – Tiger Woods made a 25-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational by one shot, extending his PGA Tour winning streak to five and keeping intact a perfect season in golf.

In his biggest challenge since this streak began seven months ago, Woods outlasted 45-year-old Bart Bryant and won with a birdie putt on the final hole for the first time in seven years. He turned and slammed his cap to the ground, letting out a roar to celebrate his 64th career victory, tying Ben Hogan at No. 3 on the PGA Tour’s career list.

Palmer stood behind the 18th green with thousands of sun-baked fans who have come to expect nothing less from Woods. The King smiled and nodded his head, a royal approval of a captivating conclusion at Bay Hill.

Woods closed with a 6-under 66 and won Bay Hill for the fifth time in his career, becoming the first player in PGA Tour history to win four tournaments at least five times.

Next up is the CA Championship at Doral, which he has won six times. No wonder some are starting to question whether he will lose again.
