        Respectful Vern,
        Jack DID NOT have major physical obstacles to over come NONE. Tigers win is significantly more impressive …

        Fast forward Tiger stays healthy and wins his 8th green jacket 🧥 at 46 yrs. old.

        Tiger wins a total of 24 MAJORS !!!

          Thank you all so much for inspiring my current life’s journey, storytelling writing career, and my post Israeli American immigrant citizenship journey, based in my current hometown of Jerusalem Israel through your films and storytelling; I could have never become the global citizen of love, kindness, compassion, and gratitude I am today and the inspiring storyteller and rising film director of my new film project Superheroic that I am now without you inspiring me to never give up, through your reels of film and cinema. In February 2019, as a present Kol Haneshama Jerusalem progressive Reform Jewish synagogue community member and dual Israeli American citizen of more than three years, I had the esteemed blessing of attending a Jerusalem Cinematheque film screening of Mrs. Nancy Spielberg's film Above and Beyond; I loved watching the film so much, and it inspired me beyond words; Film will always be a part of my heart and soul. On May 15th 1994, I was born on the Upper West Side of Manhattan New York City, and had been bullied my entire life for my mild High Functioning Autism Syndrome. Even though I had endured adversity, while going through occupational speech therapy classes, due to my inability to verbally speak before the age of three, I never let adversity and my battles with anxiety define who I am. During the fourteen years that I had spent living in Westchester New York, I had, at the age of ten years old earned a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do Martial Arts by breaking a board on fire, and overcoming Bear Mountain State Park’s black ice covered hiking trail in Upstate New York. I have been Jewish my whole life, since my mother’s parents originally from Mosul Iraq and Jerusalem Israel were also Jewish by birth. Even though I had received a second degree burn, as I broke through my karate fire board, and even though I had fallen countless times on black ice, I never let the fear of failure define who I am. Following Elementary and Middle School, and my graduation from Elementary and Middle School, I would graduate from the North Miami Beach Florida RASG Hebrew Academy High School, and never let my Autism disability inhibit me from inspiring my current life heroes. In May 2016, I ended up going on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and the Liberal Arts from Baltimore Maryland’s Goucher College; In late May 2016, I took my Israeli immigration flight from New York City’s JFK Airport to Ben Gurion’s Tel Aviv International Airport; As my JFK-Tel Aviv flight crossed over the Atlantic Ocean, I screened from beginning to end Mr. John Crowley’s Brooklyn film starring the phenomenal Ms. Saoirse Ronan; Home is where the heart is; In one of the final scenes of Saoirse Ronan’s Brooklyn film, she reached New York City and Ellis Island, an place so close to my birthplace home of Manhattan and the Upper West Side New York. Once I had landed in Jerusalem, I had already volunteered for Volunteers for Israel Sar El, The Israel Museum of Jerusalem’s Photography Department with MASA Israel for six months, and with Jerusalem’s National Library of Israel and The Central Archives of Jewish History of Hebrew University Givat Ram Jerusalem Israel, and with Jerusalem Israel’s largest archaeology site Givati Inc; led by Bar Ilan University and Hebrew University Archaeology professor emerita instructors Dr. Doron Ben Ami and Dr. Yana Tchekanovets. In Jerusalem as an Israeli, I ended up evolving into an film education equity access supporter and film directing education patron and Annenberg Inclusion Rider International Movement ambassador after I had viewed the films Wonder Woman, The Battle of the Sexes, La La Land, Lincoln, Above and Beyond, The Shape of Water, The Secret, Glory Road, Secretariat, Rudy, A Star Is Born, Lady Bird, and Newsies. From January 2018 through July 2018, I trained to join Mobileye Intel Talpiyot Jerusalem’s newest computer data algorithm correction department and QA data labeling department. By last summer, and last July 23rd 2018, I overcame all odds and all adversity placed my way, and as an Israeli American citizen (that previously lived in South Miami Florida from 2008-2016), Mobileye Intel granted me the wonderful opportunity of joining Mobileye Intel’s Har Hotsvim QA Data Correction Department HQ Team, and I know that, for life, I will always be proud of my dual Israeli American citizen identity of Jerusalem (where my real mother lived for over thirty four years, and where her late mother lived her whole life before passing away almost three years ago in Jerusalem; Her love and kindness giving spirit is in my heart and soul every day of my life. Never ever give up. I am twenty five years old now. I moved to Israel at twenty two years old. My life’s greatest dream come true is to win an Oscar Academy Award at Dolby Theater in Los Angeles California, and thank my life heroes in person for just how much they have inspired me in life to never give up, in the pursuit of my making my impossible dreams in life, a reality. I also live by Mrs. Anne Hathaways’ beautiful quote, “I live my life with love. I live my life with compassion. I live my life hoping the best for absolutely everyone, no matter how they feel about me. When you live that way, it is amazing how beautiful every day can be.” “Whatever the piece of art is, whether it’s music, literature, film … if it speaks to me, then I want to have a deeper connection with it.” – Regina King, 2019 Oscars Academy Awards Night Quote.

          As of last March 2019, I have announced to my current hometown and Holy City of
          Jerusalem Israel and the world, my new based on a true story film production
          project, I have begun directing and producing entitled Superheroic;
          Superheroic chronicles the journey of future dual Israeli American
          immigrant citizen, from New York City, Eleanor Warren, who dreams
          of becoming a film director her whole life. After Eleanor Warren’s
          first failed acting audition, at Manhattan’s Dreamers Acting
          Academy in New York City, Eleanor Warren, pursues her film
          directing graduate studies career at Los Angeles Beverly Hills
          California’s University of Southern California, (even though the
          rest of the world) does not believe Eleanor to be inspiring because
          of her mild Aspergers Autism. Toward the end of Superheroic,
          Eleanor uses her global human rights activism platforms, LGBTQQIA
          +/- justice platforms, Israeli American immigrant journey, and her
          Times Up Now and End Violence Against Women Coalition ambassador
          platforms and love spreading platforms of love and inclusivity, to
          safeguard love and kindness everywhere. Mrs. Eleanor Warren, saves
          the life of Phoenix Arizona Aviation US Air Force Pilot and Marines
          Five Star Seals Commander Admiral Mr. Vincent Everett, at Admiral
          Vincent Everett’s Phoenix Arizona military base. The major themes
          of my film Superheroic is love, kindness, courage, never give up,
          faith, and resilience. No dream is ever impossible. Human beings, 
          of our universe; Your voices of love have the power to inspire and uplift 
          lives; You all make the world a loving and beautiful place, because you 
          exist, just the way you are. “Dream on, for impossible dreams, have the power
          to come true.”In spite of my Autism I have completed my latest motion picture 
          feature film production project pre stage, for a film called Superheroic, I
          work for Mobileye Intel in Jerusalem Israel five minutes from my
          Jerusalem Israel hometown (where I have lived for over the last three
          years), which I could have never arrived to without the Oscars Academy 
          inspiring me to never ever give up in pursuit of my impossible dream
          come true, an Academy Award. My whole life, I never ever say the
          words give up, and I know, resilience is at the core of who I always
          will be; My Autism is not a limitation; I always believe one day I
          will inspire the world through my Times Up Now ambassadorship
          platform and that I will win an Oscar Academy Award live and in
          person for my film Superheroic; My Superheroic script is completely
          finished and already printed out. Superheroic is about how a
          Manhattan New York City native and twenty seven year old Mrs.
          Eleanor Josephine Warren with mild autism, auditions for a film called
          Superheroic, and fails to make the cut, but overcomes obstacles to
          earn her MA degree in film directing from USC's Annenberg Cinema and
          Film School in Los Angeles even though Eleanor struggles with her
          mild Autism herself In Superheroic, Eleanor meets five star US Air Force
          Aviation Captain from Phoenix Arizona, Admiral Mr. Vincent William
          Everett; Eleanor immigrates to Israel, Vincent immigrates to
          Israel, and Eleanor is called upon by Vincent's base to become an
          superhero warrior and superheroine for Vincent's Air Force Squadron;
          At Superheroic's end  Eleanor saves Vincent's life through aiding US 
          Air Force Phoenix Arizona Nurse Mrs. Greta Patrick. By the end of my
          film, Eleanor wins an Oscar Academy Award at Los Angeles Beverly
          Hills California's Dolby Theater. The main message of Superheroic is
          never give up and never lose faith in the beauty and loving strength
          of your heart; Love and kindness is always inside us. Superheroism is
          in us more than we ever know. My film shooting locations will be Phoenix 
          Arizona, Los Angeles California's Arts District, Manhattan New York City, 
          Iowa, Indiana, central Ireland, and Beverly Hills California's Dolby Theater Area. 
          On May 19th 2019 I will next be at Tufts University to hear Mrs. Alfre Woodard, 
          Oscar Academy Nominated Actress for 12 Years a Slave give the Tufts University 
          Medford Commencement Address in Medford Massachusetts live.

            Vern is such a class act. I was living in Dallas back in the 70’s and he was a local sports caster. He also hosted the local Bowling for Dollars show on Saturday. He has come a long way and is so deserving.

              Over the years, friends and acquaintances would matter-of- fact say"Tiger is done, he won't win another major." I always cautioned them, because I always understood his inner drive and sheer will to succeed. That is why I was not surprised when he won the Masters. I did not predict it, but I understand what's inside of him, therefore it was not surprising.

                I agree with Verne on the change of Tiger. The old Tiger Yes was unbelievable winner of tournaments, but he was not a gracious man on many levels. I was not a fan back then of Tigers, now it appears Tiger has smelled the roses of life and seems to realize that family and friends are the real trophies in life. He is now gracious to fans and his fellow golf competitors

                  I knew Tiger was going to win when he made that bomb on, I think 14, on Saturday. He made an emotional fist pump, and "that look" came back in his eye.

                        Verne has been a solid professional sportscaster for over 50 years. Started at Channel 8 Sports on TV in Fort Worth-Dallas in the 60s. He also did "Bowling for Dollars" I believe. Ha.

                                        Tiger has grown up. A little humility and grace go along way.

                                            Verne Lundquist and Jim Nantz ooze class, dignity, and respect for The Masters. Verne’s call in 05 will always be my favorite. His commentary and that shot will forever be linked together. The best shot ever at the Masters will always be linked with the best commentary moment at the Masters, very classy, classy guy, Verne Lundquist😁😁

                                            I like watching the crowds during the tournament and in today’s society it seemed to be the only time you’ll see everyone happy together. When I watched Tiger Woods take that victory walk on the 18th in Atlanta at the tour Championship, everybody was just happy who were from all walks of life.

                                                    I have never liked Tiger. But I almost always rooted for him to win. Especially on this comeback trail. It's a strange love/hate. He's just been too good and dominating not to be appreciated. But man, was he so arrogantly unlikable for so long. Nicklaus in '86 was always my favorite golf moment, by far, until Sunday. That, was epic. So far beyond what Nicklaus did it's staggering. I wrote Tiger off years ago, but he rewrote the story, and I'm thankful I was able to witness the greatest feat in pro sports history.

                                                      @SunGod Asiatic If person (A) has support from person (B) claiming a dislike overall for person (A) but also here claims "Love & Hate for person (A), person (B's) conflict is with himself; Person (B) and not per-say with person (A).. Having no common ground in the present, or any prier relationship of knowledge of the other... lends those feeling to be what I would call "Envy". By definition... Jealousy.

                                                      @James Fondren -- No doubt. Golf demands it. It's a sport the weak minded can't handle.

                                                        The difference between then and now is they aren't taking about who his coach is, what ball is he hitting, or what equipment he is using(all of which are relatively new). I noticed that right away. Not a word about his cut shot practice follow through or his angle of impact being too steep. I also noticed that he's back to the blade putter after using the red mallet last year. I think he switched this spring at some point. Forgot about that. It obviously worked.

                                                          Don't know if Tiger will pass Jack. Tiger has made it so difficult on himself. There are far more players who play golf, there are far more players who are fit and hit the ball a mile because of Tiger's influence. Tiger could be average and win, now Tiger has to play really well to win. Say his health is perfect and he gets 7 more years. 28 attempts to get 4 more? The other majors require you to keep it in the fairway much more, but hey, you never know.

                                                            Except he just won the Masters without playing really well. He played patient gold and only shot 70. Everyone one else who hit the ball a mile collapsed with huge mistakes on 12. His Masters win pretty much proves you wrong.
