Coming into the Hero World Challenge, there was serious doubt if Tiger Woods could finish all 72 holes. By Sunday night, Woods proved he could play a full tournament and make enough birdies and eagles to tie for the lead in that category for the week.There were plenty of positives from Woods time in the Bahamas, and a few negatives, too.So whats the future look like for the 14-time major champion? Our panel of experts talk all things Tiger.1. What kind of expectations do you have for Tiger going forward?SportsCenter anchor Matt Barrie: Tiger far exceeded my expectations this week, and because of it, I think, if healthy, he can win tournaments this season. Its clear he put a priority on getting his game in tournament shape. It was very encouraging. I expect him to win.SportsCenter anchor Jonathan Coachman: Big. And we all should. Second-most birdies in the field. Swing speed is there. I think any top athlete understands what happened on the back nine each day but Friday. He simply got tired, mentally and physically. None of us knows what it takes to be the absolute best at what you do. He does. So I take him at his word. When he tightens that stuff up, the sky is the limit. His game is there.ESPN.com senior golf writer Michael Collins: My hope is that he stays healthy for the year and we see him play about 12-14 tournaments. My expectations are that hell play some tournaments, show us some flashes of brilliance, and by the end of the year be ready to win again once he locks in his equipment.ESPN.com senior golf writer Bob Harig: They are still modest, but much higher after the way he looked this week. Nobody knew what to expect, and while it still is going to take time for him to get comfortable playing competitive golf again, this was a big step and a great place from which to build.ESPN.com senior golf writer Jason Sobel:? As far as success, Im still keeping the bar set pretty low. Lets allow him to get a few more tournament reps before we start assessing any potential for contending again. My expectations are more about his schedule. I fully expect him to play at Torrey Pines next month -- if not an event in the Middle East before then -- followed by, if he remains healthy, his own event at Riviera, then the Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational before the Masters.2. What does Tiger have to work on the most after his return to competitive golf?Barrie: He needs to work on tournament stamina and getting physically back in four-day shape. There seemed to be moments each day, specifically on his back nine, when his execution would slip. We can only assume fatigue could be setting in.Coachman: See my answer to the first question. And he also had some short-game problems. If he commits to adding more tournaments before the Masters, all of that can get worked out. He says he wants to play a lot. I would love to see him at a couple of events that he has never played. Clearly the excitement was back this weekend in a big way.Collins: Stamina. I know that sounds crazy to people who focus only on how much Tiger works out. Being able to get a good workout in and being able to play five rounds of golf in a row are so massively different there isnt enough room to tell you here. Tiger said it himself though; hes got to get in better golf shape.Harig: He needs to work on everything. And thats actually a good thing because there was no overwhelming, glaring weakness. There was the good and the bad for everything, but hes not so far away in any aspect that it is alarming. Tiger was surprisingly good in many areas of his game and it is apparent he just needs more time.Sobel: He needs to eliminate the big number. Woods had the same number of eagles/birdies as tournament winner Hideki Matsuyama, but posted five double-bogeys in four rounds. But I do think its easier for a player coming back from injury to eliminate bogeys than try to make more birdies. In that respect, this was a good sign.3. Where will we see Tiger next inside the ropes?Barrie: The Sony Open would be a logical next tournament for him. The field is competitive and its after the new year, which gives him more time to practice. But somewhere in Hawaii seems like a good next stop.Coachman: It better be sometime in January. And I do not suggest taking a money grab overseas. No long flights or other travel that is not work-related. This is a slow build to Augusta. Other than the two events in Hawaii, which he wont play, lets see him tee it up anywhere in January.Collins: Well, that depends on who we are. If we are the PGA Tour and U.S. fans, itll be Torrey Pines. If we are included in the international media, then it will be Abu Dhabi.Harig: The guess here is either the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship or the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Or both. They are in consecutive weeks in January. If he doesnt play in Abu Dhabi, then Woods will open in San Diego.Sobel: I dont think even he knows yet; he admitted as much during his post-round interview session on Sunday. I wouldnt be surprised to see him compete in Abu Dhabi, and Id be absolutely shocked if he was healthy and didnt play the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.4. How does Tiger handle the questions about his golf equipment choices for 2017?Barrie: By showing up to tournaments using new drivers, balls and putters. Hes going to play with what makes him comfortable, and he wont know until he uses them. Already ditching the Nike putter seems to be trending in a good direction.Coachman: It was pretty clear how happy he was having his trusty putter back. At this point in his career, he should use the equipment he feels gives him the best chance to win, not the company that makes him look the best. As a fan, I never thought about what equipment he was playing. I only worried about the fact that he was playing.Collins: By saying this: Im Tiger Woods and Im going to play what I want for a while. If Pat Perez can make a comeback and win with a bunch of different clubs, I think I should be allowed the leeway to do the same for a while too.Harig: Hes got many choices and the key now is not to get so consumed by it. Woods acknowledged that the testing process is lengthy, but he seems to have settled on the Bridgestone ball and hit the TaylorMade woods quite well. At some point, hell transition from the Nike irons he used this week and its possible he has different equipment companies in his bag.Sobel: He already has. Hes got the freedom now to play whatever clubs he wants on any given week. For an equipment geek like him -- and I call him that respectfully -- this freedom must feel pretty nice. Tavon Young Jersey . Boucher previously coached the Tampa Bay Lightning and had a 97-78-20 record over two-plus seasons. He was dismissed by the team last March after the Lightning struggled in the lockout-shortened season with a 13-18-1 record. Baltimore Ravens Jerseys China . Hazard cut in from the left and scored with a swerving right-footed shot for ninth goal of the season, which proved to be enough for the victory despite Chelseas forwards again lacking a cutting edge up front. http://www.cheapravensjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-anthony-averett-jersey . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. Michael Pierce Jersey . To the surprise of many, it isnt the Wolverines but their in-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans. Mark Andrews Jersey . With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play. MILWAUKEE -- One of the National Leagues top left-handed relievers, Will Smith rarely lets down the Milwaukee Brewers.It made Smiths meltdown on the mound against the Chicago Cubs so surprising on Sunday.Anthony Rizzo hit a three-run double off Smith in a five-run seventh, and the Brewers squandered a four-run lead in a 6-5 loss to Chicago.The Cubs broke through against the Brewers bullpen after struggling with runners in scoring position against starter Junior Guerra. That changed after Smith took over for Guerra with one out in the seventh.Tommy La Stella, who went 3 for 3, had an RBI double before Smith (1-3) walked Kris Bryant to load the bases for Rizzo. He hit a 2-2 slider down in the zone into right-center to clear the bases and give Chicago a 5-4 lead.Rizzo had some hits against Smith in the past, and hes also struck him out him out a bunch. Its a big spot in the game, for sure, manager Craig Counsell said. But Im not taking Will out. Thats his hitter.A key member of the Brewers bullpen for three seasons, Smith had a 1.93 ERA going into Sunday. The ERA ballooned to 3.86 after Smith failed to record an out while giving up five runs on three hits, a walk and an error.The blown lead overshadowed another solid start by 31-year-old rookie Guerra, who allowed five hits, four walks and one unearned run over 6 1/3 innings.Maybe his stuff wasnt quite as crisp as its been in the past, and still, he did everything he possibly needed to do to have a good game, Counsell said.BRINGING THE HEATThe Brewers left the retractable roof at Miller Park open on a sticky afternoon, with the game-time temperature at 90 degrees. The contest lasted more than 4 hours.ddddddddddddIt was very hot, kind of reminded me of playing in Venezuela, Guerra said through an interpreter. But youve just got to find a way to make an adjustment and throw strikes.SWIPE CITYThe Brewers built a 4-0 lead, stealing six bases in a game for the first time since May 13, 2013. Ryan Braun and Jonathan Villar each had two steals off Lester by the bottom of the second.COMEBACKThe rally made a winner of reliever Joe Nathan in his first game in the majors since April 2015. He was activated off the 60-day disabled list earlier Sunday, completing his comeback from Tommy John surgery.Nathan gave up a leadoff triple to Villar in the sixth and a walk before striking out 3-4-5 hitters Braun, Jonathan Lucroy and Chris Carter.It was opening day for me today, and the adrenaline was ... through the roof. It was almost too much, Nathan said.Ben Zobrists RBI single scored Rizzo in the seventh and gave the Cubs a needed insurance run after closer Hector Rondon gave up a homer to Kirk Nieuwenhuis with two outs in the ninth to draw Milwaukee within a run.Rondon struck out Jake Elmore looking for his 18th save.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: Will Middlebrooks left the game before the top of the fourth a lower right leg strain. The third baseman popped out in the bottom of the third.UP NEXT:Brewers: Chase Anderson (4-10) opens a four-game series against his former club, the Arizona Diamondbacks. The righty has struggled over his past six outings, going 0-4 with a 9.13 ERA.
