Tiger Woods Picks Himself On His 'Mount Rushmore Of Golf'

For fans of golf, it's a day we thought might never come. Tiger Woods is back.

Well, alongside his swing and his form being back to something approximating what we've come to expect, that old Tiger swagger is back with it too.

Following on from his win at East Lake last weekend, Woods was asked to choose his 'Mount Rushmore of Golf'.

For those who don't get that, Mount Rushmore is a huge monument carved into the side of a mountain in the United States, featuring the faces of four famous American presidents.

Basically, he was asked to choose the four golfers who are worthy of having their faces carved in stone on the list of all-time greats.

As if to prove that the old Tiger Woods bravado was back, of course he chose himself.

His choices were Sam Snead, the only man with more PGA tour wins than him, Jack Nicklaus, the only player with more major championship wins than him, and Bobby Jones, a lawyer and amateur golfer who basically invented The Masters - the best tournament in golf.

All of this doesn't bode too well for those among us who want Europe to win the Ryder Cup which takes place this weekend at Le Golf National in Paris.

Tiger joins a star-studded list of US golfers who are only going to be given more inspiration from the fact that one of the greatest golfers of all time is right behind them and firing on all cylinders.

That said, even for European fans, it's a great sight to behold, and can only be good for the profile of golf to have the GOAT tearing through the biggest team tournament in the sport.

Still, come on Europe.

Tiger's return has been brewing for a while now - from his performance at The Open earlier this year at Carnoustie where at several points he led the field, to his runner-up performance at the PGA Championship, this has definitely been coming.

Then, this past weekend, he managed to out it all together again and win his 80th PGA tournament ever. Not just any PGA tournament, either. It was the Tour Championship.

He's back playing some of the best stuff of his life and that's even considering he had several vertebrae in his spine fused together not so long ago and looked as if he might never raise a club again, let alone dominate a tournament.
