Of all the memories from Tiger Woods' roots in Southern California, it's easy to overlook the time he made an appearance in the Tournament of Roses parade.
Tiger Woods always has been measured against Jack Nicklaus and his 18 majors, and most recently Sam Snead and his 82 PGA Tour victories.
Woods should be a lock for player of the year, provided he is measured against the other four names on the ballot instead of the previous seasons when he won the award.
This might be the best way to measure Tiger Woods' season. Sam Snead is getting more attention than Jack Nicklaus.
Tiger Woods played safe and smart with a big lead, parring 16 holes in an even-par 70 Sunday to coast to a seven-shot victory at the Bridgestone Invitational for his eighth win at the event — matching the PGA Tour record he already shared for victories in a single tournament.

The Masters trophy Sam Snead won in 1954 after the epic playoff with Ben Hogan. The claret jug when Snead won his only British Open at St. Andrews. The gold medal for the 1942 PGA Championship, the first of his seven major championships.
Next week marks four years that Justin Rose first began working on his swing with Sean Foley. But in the moments after winning the U.S. Open for his first major championship, Rose referred to him as more than just a swing coach.
The U.S. Golf Association is not opposed to inflicting cruel and unusual punishment at its premier championship, so here's something it might want to consider.
"I'll just go out there and execute my game plan," he said. "It all starts with what the weather is doing, and then I build it from there. We'll see what I do tomorrow."
"There are things that are certainly more important, and fatherhood is No. 1," he said. "Golf has always been a high priority in my life, but family has always been No. 1. So that hasn't changed. So, for me, I certainly want to break Jack's record and catch Snead's record. Those are all things that I would love to do ... but being the best father I can possibly be to my two great kids, that certainly is No. 1 in my life."
