That's a long road back.  Congrats to the kid old guy.
 
2019-04-14 02:42:52 PM  
Good for him. I can't stand golf, but a solid redemption arc is always appreciated.
 
2019-04-14 02:43:55 PM  
I liked my headline better

"Party at Perkins tonight."

That said, the 16th hole was one for the ages. That was amazing. Congratulations Tiger!
 
2019-04-14 02:44:02 PM  
I'm so damn happy.
 
2019-04-14 02:46:05 PM  
He deserved it.  Great jorb.
 
2019-04-14 02:46:34 PM  
I don't care. I was still nervous about that last putting, despite everyone talking about it being in the bag.

That lips out, and we get a four-day clownshoes playoff, with.storms coming.

/when is the next major?
 
2019-04-14 02:47:32 PM  
Is he back? Or is this an anomaly?
 
2019-04-14 02:48:38 PM  
Oh come on CBS. Quit trying to make the guy cry
 
2019-04-14 02:49:17 PM  
And that dude who I laughed at for laying 85k down on him to win it just won 1.2 mil
 
2019-04-14 02:49:37 PM  
Lots of drama, which made for good tv.  Plus Augusta National kept the insane fans from mobbing the 18th fairway like at Tiger's last win.

/ Now if they could keep security people from assaulting the players...
 
2019-04-14 02:50:32 PM  
At the end of the calendar year, we can look back at this result and conclude that 2019 consisted of only 99 percent suckitude.

Thanks, Tiger, for saving the year.
 
2019-04-14 02:50:44 PM  
Glad for the Big Cat
 
2019-04-14 02:52:57 PM  
This was absolutely awesome. The long road back for the greatest of all time results in the world heavyweight championship for the fifth time.

Any headline is better than an "I don't understand what a repeat is" headline.

And I suspect that the bookies are changing the odds of Tiger winning another major this year right now, just to avoid that sort of payout.
 
2019-04-14 02:58:43 PM  
This is inspiring to me.  I'm going to take that online college class.

VRmp3: Is he back? Or is this an anomaly?


He's back. Not Tiger in 2000 back, but 3rd straight top 10 at a major , including a 2nd place finish. Plus winning the playoff last year.
 
2019-04-14 02:59:36 PM  
To put it into a bit of perspective, Tiger Woods has now won the Masters in three different decades: his first in '97, three in the 00's, and now again in 2019.

Amazing comeback.
 
2019-04-14 03:03:20 PM  

VRmp3: Is he back? Or is this an anomaly?


He's been playing really well as of late.   I'd say he's mostly back, but given his age and health, and that the rest of the field consists mostly of kids that grew up wanting to be Tiger Woods, wins will be harder to come by.

Which is actually good for the sport.

He is back as a contender.  He is not back as the dominant Tiger Woods of the 2000s. He is an older golfer now and his body has limitations on his game.  He can still compete week in and week out, but who knows for how long. Enjoy today because soon if not today, this could be his last major win ever as is the case for all athletes as father time catches up to them.
 
2019-04-14 03:05:18 PM  
When asked about all of his victories over the years, Tiger said, "They're great."
 
2019-04-14 03:06:11 PM  
Handjobs for everyone at the ESPN headquarters. The oldsters are weeping as they do it, too!
 
2019-04-14 03:09:54 PM  
Damn, it's been just about 10 years since his ex-wife used his face like je a golf ball, good times
 
2019-04-14 03:10:47 PM  
Wonder where are the folks who buried him are right now?

He'll never win another major
He'll never win another tournament
Even he'll never play again.

Who cares about 18 anymore  - that was stupendous. I think I'd consider hanging it up. There's nothing left to prove.
 
2019-04-14 03:15:38 PM  
I didn't think he'd ever win again, much less a major

I didn't think he would get there.  He might pick up the odd tournament, but another major, that was asking too much.  Hell for awhile there a few years back with his back issues it was a fair question if he could or should try playing again. It is a great story and a triumph over his own physical and personal challenges that almost everyone should be behind.
 
2019-04-14 03:17:19 PM  
On my way to get groceries this morning, I heard the host on ESPN radio say flat out that Tiger wasn't gonna win, since he'd just bogeyed the 5th hole. "Still a good show for him, but he's got no chance of winning"
I think he was three back at the time. Nice announcing.
This will take some of the sting of a LeBron-less playoffs away for ESPN.
 
2019-04-14 03:18:09 PM  
What a great day.   I have always loved watching tiger play.  Today makes me smile.  He won and he really wasn't on his best game.  His putting could have been better.   Hell yes.  Tiger is the man.

He won last year.

He's back. I called it in the Tuesday thread.

that's wild. good for him.

You misspelled 12th hole
 
2019-04-14 03:37:20 PM  
11 years from now, he'll win another. (if not a few more in between then)

I was ready to go apeshiat if he aced it.

It's taken a an hour, but I've gotten over the "OMG Tiger won" fan-boy stuff to start making jokes
So, how long do you think until the new girlfriend gets worried that she's going to get kicked to the curb?
 
2019-04-14 03:41:16 PM  
Where are they playing the BRITISH Open this year (forget it, R&A, we Yanks are *not* going to call it The Open)?

At least until he makes it to the waffle house.

She runs his restaurant. She's like 35.

A week.

Good on him.  Glad to see he may actually have finally gotten his shiat back together.

Charles of York: Damn, it's been just about 10 years since his ex-wife used his face like je a golf ball, good times


I always remember the general time period when that happened because it was the same month (November 2009) the Yankees won their last World Series.

Also the same month I started dating my wife, but whatever.

Know what the best part was? It was over by 2:00 central. That's the way it should be. Start the Sunday rounds early all the time CBS!

She's attractive, but if he would cheat on a lingerie model, she's got to be getting worried
