      Max has no respect for tiger lol. Any professional sport star deserves credit. Also what he’s been through. Max doesn’t get the tiger effect

                      Intimidation? Fuck off. He won because he out golfed the field. Tiger who hasn't won shit in years comes out and intimidates the top golfers in the world? At the masters? Yeah eat shit you donkey brained cocksuckers at espn.

                          Tiger didn't intimidate anyone, Tiger never shot the same shot as the other 4 players who went into the the water. Tiger went over the bunker, a shorter distance. He out smarter them in the 12 th hole. Experience winning 4 Masters and playing there over 20 times...

                                      You may not need to be young or “athletic” to play golf but anyone that does with a bad back knows it’s impossible to compete. Even a finger unisex can doom a golfer.

                                            Stfu max. Easy for someone who didn't play sports at a high level to say a player is weak if pressure affects them. Nobody is completely above pressure. Pressure in golf is more difficult to handle than in something like basketball or football. There's so much more time in between actions in golf and thus pressure weighs on you more. So fuck off max, you don't know shit

                                                    That’s not true golf will always be “relevant” I watch all sports and I’m a huge fan of all mainstream sports. I’m not a huge soccer fan. But golf and soccer are world wide LEGENDARY sports. No one can top golf and soccer/futball. But in my opinion no sport in the history is as old and is as iconic as golf.

                                                    People that never played the game thinks Tiger has to keep it relevant. No sport in the history is as hard as golf. In golf it’s not about being “big or tall” it’s a grind for 4 days more like 6 or more with practice. It is the most challenging and mentally challenging main stream sport of all time. People don’t know what it takes to hit a shot perfectly on a spot of a professional green to get a chance for a birdie or eagle putt. It’s a grind and a focus unlike anything out there. And there is no one to help you. All by yourself. Your worst enemy in life is yourself. That is the game of golf. Tiger woods has proven to be the greatest player in any sport EVER to do what he has done is the impossible. There will Never be something like this in the history of mainstream sports. This is a once in a billion year moment. I salute to man. No one has doubted anyone more than Tiger. This is a movie in real life. And I will never forget what I’ve seen. Bigger than sports. This is a will of a human that didn’t do it for the world. But for the will of his father. His family. And himself. The greatest of all time.

                                                      Stephen A...you can backpeddle all you want but the viewers know what you said about Tiger. The viewers know that out of your own big mouth,that you said he would never win a major again and was very skeptical that he would even win a PGA tour event again. Tiger checked BOTH of those right off your list. Max Kellerman,you go out there on a Sunday at a major,with Tiger Woods,within 1-2 shots of you,and I GUARANTEE you,you’ll crack under the pressure as well. The mental aspect of golf,which isn’t a team sport but an individual sport,you rely on no one but YOURSELF!! Y’all don’t even need to comment about the sport of golf because you guys have no clue what it entails.

                                                          Golf can be cool to do and fun, but its more of a leisurely past time for old white dudes than it is a "sport". If golf is a sport than pool is also a sport. And throwing frisbee is a sport.
