This is all about Tiger and his incredible journey of finding greatness, falling into an emotional abyss of injury and isolation, and coming back to play in the most competitive era of golf to WIN the 2019 The Masters. I'm so happy for this man, watching him hug his family after the victory in Augusta and listening to the hundreds of lucky patrons chanting his name was a thing of beauty. You can't write a better script. This is the greatest achievement in golf so far, period. Stories like these are what motivate people to get out and play golf again! Congrats Tiger Woods!

Steven A Smith is the laughing stock among the Tiger haters who said he would never win again and was washed up. Go sit in the corner and eat crow Steven A Smith as your attempt to speak favorably of Tiger now is simply pathetic. Thank you to Will for calling Steven A Smith out...priceless.....

"Tiger can't win," "Tiger cannot be elite?" Not only is this the Tiger Wood's era... this is also the "Tom Brady era." Age is less and less of a factor, as long as a person takes care of their health.

He doesn't have to pass Jack. This win is worth a ton. Tiger inspired a generation of talented, skilled, and the most athletic golfers in history. To beat them is worth more than 1. Its like The Cavs beating golden state. This one is worth about 2 or 3. For perspective, think about how impossible it would be for a 46 year old Jack to beat a 2000s prime Tiger during the Tiger slam...

Tiger will pass Jack because he is the Goat of golf and it is written. Jack knows this and actually secretly wants this because he is that type of guy. Tiger deserves to be known as the best player in golf history and it will happen eventually.

Tiger is gonna win another major this year.
1) Best iron player in the world. This is not even up for debate. By a huge margin.
2) Right up there with best chippers in the world. Maybe the best. Remarkable after the chipping yips circa 2015-2016. However, in Tiger's case maybe they were more physiological with his various swing changes and back/knee issues than purely psychological. In any case, he's exceptional there again.
3) Nowhere near the best driver of the ball, but he now has a solid reliable low fade that carries 280-290 that he can hit pretty much any time he needs it under pressure. Which puts him in position for approach shots...see #1.

He may be shy of the major record outright but he has Jack by 8 PGA tour victories so by sheer victory count, he's the best next to Sam Snead. And zero disrespect to Jack. He is and always will be a legend!

Stephen is such a flip flopper
Goes from saying he won’t win his 15th to now at 43 years old Tiger is going to win 4 more (3 to tie)

Tiger is back, but he’s not back back. When he doesn’t win another major this year or next year everyone will be out on him again. Then he’ll win the 2021 masters and everyone will be talking about him catching Jack again after spending 2020 counting him out

i Still can pitch it n chip it,
i Still can putt it,
