(Newser) – Tiger Woods finally brought the buzz back to the very thing that made him famous—winning. Two weeks after another injury scare, and two days before his former coach's book goes on sale, Woods looked dominant as ever today in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. It was his first PGA Tour victory since a sex scandal at the end of 2009 led to one of the greatest downfalls in sports. And with the Masters only two weeks away, Woods looks more capable of ever than resuming his pursuit of Jack Nicklaus in the majors. Woods closed with a 2-under 70 for a five-shot win over Graeme McDowell.

Well, good for him. I don't really believe in the 'social contract,' as far as I'm concerned his personal life is absolutely no business of 99.999 percent of the population (I love when people look at celebrities who do funny/crazy shit and scream 'you are a bad example for our children!' Your kids aren't their problem). The only reason why I cared about the guy at all was because he was very good at hitting balls into holes. Crap, the jokes really do write themselves, don't they?
