He's No. 1!

It is possible that it is time to resume the lovefest for Tiger Woods, who has officially returned to top form, after winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational for the eighth time.

This is the first time Woods has been No. 1 since October 2010.

His next tournament is next month's Masters, which Woods has won four times.

Writes the Associated Press:

Woods fell as low as No. 58 in the world as he coped with a crisis in his personal life and injuries to his left leg. One week after he announced he was dating Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn, Woods celebrated his third win of the season, and his sixth going back to Bay Hill a year ago.

"It's a byproduct of hard work, patience and getting back to winning golf tournaments," Woods said.

Vonn tweeted moments after his win, "Number 1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!"
