The last time Tiger Woods was in Corona del Mar it was to prepare for one of the most exciting moments on a golf course. His return to his part-time residence this time will no doubt prove another thrill, but this time it will be off the golf course. In June, Woods was prepping for the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego. He was at home the week before, working out at a local gym to ready himself for the nation’s championship. He won the tournament in a playoff over Rocco Mediate, playing with torn knee ligaments and fractures in the same leg. It was one of the most captivating major championships in the history of the sport.
