TIGER'S 2012 EVENTS ABU DHABI HSBC CHAMPIONSHIP (European Tour) KICK-STARTING HIS season on the European Tour, Woods plays three solid rounds of golf before a scratchy final round 72 relegates him to a tie for third behind winner Robert Rock and Rory McIlroy. Despite his Round 4 inconsistency, it shows early signs his game is back on track. VERDICT: Stripe AT&T PEBBLE BEACH PRO-AM DESPITE SHOOTING three rounds in the 60s and finding himself one shot off the lead through six holes on the final day, Tiger struggles to maintain his consistency, blowing out his final round with a 75. He drops to a share of 15th as his nemesis Phil Mickelson takes the candy. VERDICT: No stripe WGC-ACCENTURE MATCH PLAY WOODS IS OUSTED from the event in the second round by fellow American Nick Watney (1-up) after missing a five-foot birdie putt at the last to extend the battle.

VERDICT: No stripe THE HONDA CLASSIC SIGNS TW’S GAME is improving are shown in neon lights when Tiger wheels around the Palm Beach course in 62 shots—his lowest ever final-round score on the PGA Tour.

Out of contention and on his way to his worst ever finish at the venue, a wincing Woods withdraws after teeing off on the 12th hole. VERDICT: No stripe ARNOLD PALMER INVITATIONAL WOODS WINS HIS first official tournament in more than two and a half years, just two weeks after an injury scare at the Cadillac. He romps home by five shots ahead of Graeme McDowell to record his seventh win at the event. “Pure joy,” Woods says of the win at the time. The victory moves him to within one of Jack Nicklaus on the list of all-time PGA Tour winners. VERDICT: Stripe "Whether we have thousands of people or we have a small handful of people out there, it doesn't change the execution of the shot." COVER STORY THE
