Default Congrats to Tiger Woods!

He won his 15th major championship, and fifth Masters, and is now only behind Jack Nicklaus (who has six Masters jackets and 18 majors.) IIRC he is also now second all time in PGA wins although I need to review that stat, haven't heard much about it of late.

Also way back when Tiger went through his struggles, specifically after his teeth got bashed in and his wife left him, I said on CF that he'd never win another major. And really there's no way he should have, but he did. Possibly the greatest sports comeback story ever. Today we saw history, it was truly amazing.

This weekend definitely had that feel. Good for him.

The PGA needed that for sure.

The story was that he wrecked his SUV pulling out of his driveway in reverse after having a spat with his wife when she found out he was screwing around on her. But the theory is that she took a 9-iron to his face. We know she smashed a couple of his car's windows out with a golf club.

I enjoyed watching it this afternoon.

I remember as a teenager watching him win his 1st. Still lived with my parents, and our old wooden console TV from the 80s was in my bedroom and I watched it on that.

When Tiger does well, the entire golf "business" does well.


Glad to see he still has it.


The best part of him winning........ I get to pick on Billy at work.

His latest back surgeon should get half of the purse. Just a phenomenal health recovery.

I used to play with my Grandfather when he was alive. I enjoyed the game itself but really enjoyed that I got to spend time with my Grandfather

He passed in Sept of 91 and that was the last time I played.

Notah Begay was saying on ESPN Radio this morning that at one point Tiger had to be physically carried around because he couldn't even stand up.

It is incredible how his body has recovered.
