      Everyone likes to see the big star fall but they don’t know what to do when the star rises even higher.....⭐️ 🌟 .... this is a story of a great man who not only is the best golfer ever; but who also conquers his weaknesses and demons to come back. Anyone who doesn’t see the unimaginable power, courage, and strength in this needs to take a look at themselves to see why they are so pitifully eager to judge. Fear of their own weaknesses and insecurities? Tiger has earned even more respect in my book! 💪🏻🙏🏻👊🏻👏🏻

      @Larry Preston Your comment was the only reason I came to this video ; Whitlock had a chance to gracefully admit he was wrong when he said that this would never happen again.I didnt even watch the video.
      Like I said, I saw the headline and whitlock ,And I only came to see if anyone else had already said it. And give them the like insted of rewritting whats already there. Thats how I speek for myself.

      @Boredaf By many metrics I would agree, but majors are how they are rated and until he passes Jack, a lot of people won't agree. To me the most impressive thing he's ever done was his streak of cuts made. He made 142 cuts in a row. Considering he only played about 19 or 20 tournaments a year during that stretch, he didn't have a bad week in 7 years or miss a cut in about 28 majors in a row. I don't know how many major cuts in a row he made, but it was at least 28. Think about that. LOL. Then think that the number 1 player in the world entering the Masters was Justin Rose and he missed the cut. Here's another amazing stat. From 2002-2005 he had 1540 puts 3 feet or less. He only missed 3 of them. I miss that many every round. LOL

      Easy answer - I have never before considered purchasing a TW hat or garment, even though I was and am a huge fan. I just did purchase TW garb.
      Great human mental achievement in as a-far as overcoming social, personal and medical confrontations / issues.

    That last comment "we don't like you threatening our legends, we Don't !!!...." encapsulates the White mans heart and mind. It basically means "Know your place", "be good but don't be as good as us" we would only like you if you are second or third place, don't attempt to be first, that first place is reserved only for the "White man" a fundamental racist ideology!!!!...

        Whitlock that fat blank was bashing tiger 2weeks ago, saying the tour championship almost shouldn't count because there was only a couple quality players left and only 2 or 3 players who could've won the championship with points!!!!! TIGER COULD WIN ALL FOUR MAJORS THIS YEAR IF HIS DRIVER AND PUTTER GET HOT

                  Remember almost ever EA sports number 1 golf game has been Tiger Woods. Even now every young golf lover knows and loves Tiger. He has not lost any Tiger Woods fans. He will actually have more. Did you watch the crowds at the Masters. It was all about Tiger. Lost fans, you kidding me?? 43 in golf is no issue if you play like Tiger.

                                      Tiger is absolutely more popular now than before, just look at how much you’re talking about him.

                                        Seeing the comments hating on tiger for his off field issues is absurd. I dont watch/follow golf and/or tiger because of his personal life and why should every one else that hate on tiger? Let tiger do what he does in his free time. Tiger dont want to be your role model and no one should look up to him being a role model. We all should only judge tiger when he is on the golf course, making golf more exciting and not try to be up in his personal life business. 99.9% men would commit adultery if they were filthy rich and has the opportunity. i believe majority of the people who dislike tiger because he is black/asian and successful.

                                            Who are you kidding?! Tiger is still popular among young people. Golf was really boring when Tiger wasn’t here. His first win back shows the hype he brings that no one had brought on his absence. The other pro golfers were in awe!! Tiger is better and bigger than ever!

                                              Stop referring to Tiger as "BLACK." His mom is Thai and Tiger's dad was a mix of African American, Chinese and Native American. If anything, Tiger is Asian-American.

                                                the masters was rigged from the start, the Vegas odds prove it.. tiger needs attention and relevancy and cash

                                                            Tiger has more US Amateurs , more PGA victories , added a zero on everyones paycheck, and made golf cool. Jack did none of these.

                                                              Tiger can still smash it. He dialed back on Sunday to keep a tidy round and watch the youngsters fall. Scary when Tiger plays tactical golf.

Playing this way will put less pressure on his body and give him the best chance to get that record! He has such insane pressure put on him by his father, I think he is finally playing for himself or it feels this way. What an amazing achievement!

His technique is more powerful and more accurate than Jack's technique afforded him. He has access to better equipment and technology.. It is Tiger's short game that will lift him ultimately. Tiger has a short game that Jack could only dream about. Even Jack has stated that tid bit, many times in fact. Will Tiger win more majors? Of course he will because he instinctively knows when to attack, and when to pull back on the reigns and void strategic errors. The green is long and shallow on 12. The trouble is that when the flag is right side, any shot short will roll back into the water, and that is exactly why that berm was built so steeply. When the flag is left, the water is out of play. What Tiger did was take the water completely out of play, because approaching over that trap meant that any shot ending up short would be on the beach instead of ending up wet, and Tiger is excellent out of the sand in such an event anyway. It wasn't that the others fell apart per se... they slightly mishit when they had taken a dangerous line to attack the flag's position. If any of them had succeeded, they would most likely have gone on to win. At the minimum it would have forced Tiger's hand, and he would have gone flag hunting in return. As to Tiger moving forward now, the truth is long before he played Rocco on his bad leg, his body was in terrible shape. His repeated snapping of that post leg so sharply, was so close to hyper-extending that knee on his chase for power, that leg was never going to be able to last an entire career in my opinion. All it would take is a wet day where his foot slips out as he transitioned onto that post he sprung off of, and his knee was toast. He was jacked up for a few years before his back went out. He had knee and neck issues. He was winning less often, sure, but he was still winning. His back crippled him pretty much. I am as surprised as everyone else is that he came back from not be able to simply stand, to winning the Masters. He returned to form so quickly, it is a testament to his knowledge of a proper swing technique, and his familiarity with his personal swing. Hold on folks, the real Tiger is playing through now (once again). Not the busted up one who had to take a knee. Tiger is going to teach you how to play the game once more. Pay attention, this is your last chance to watch up close. (Clue: It isn't just his swing that was always on point. It was his mind and focus as well.)

                                                                                      eddiebro...Good points. I didn't know as much about those always important details as you, but I think I got confirmation of one thought I had about Tiger and other aging stars. I'm guessing that only physical setbacks can now keep him down. I always appreciated watching the elder great players in a sport still playing at a high level, when 'father time' normally says this is not suppose to happen. They have to change their game to account for this, but that's what's fun and interesting about watching older players find ways to compete at a high level.

                                                                                      To me, it's similar to true stories about how people are forced into desperate survival situations and what they figured out to do to survive. Obviously, Tiger's been very busy recently tweaking the details involved in every golfers swing that has so little margin for error. I've been good at many sports, but I always have been quite bad at woods and long irons. But that's why I respect and enjoy watching the shots Tiger and the other pro's make.

Then Tiger comes along and is threatening all of Nicklaus's records and the "new" old guard didn't like that either so many people didn't like Tiger. I love watching Athletic Greatness, and there is no denying that Tiger was Great and if this weekend is any indication still can be. I'm rooting for him. That much I know for sure. Go Tiger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If he can stay as healthy as he seems to be right now, who knows how much he'll be able to accomplish. Personally, I still think it will be hard to pass Jack, but the US Open is at Pebble Beach and he's won there before and the PGA is at Bethpage where he's won also. He'll need to drive the ball a little straighter, but his iron play has been stellar and his putting seems to be coming around. Can't wait for the next 3 majors to see what he can do. LOL

He was super famous in his prime, but not necessarily super well liked. He's becoming more well liked now after going through so much. People can relate to that and the fact that he seems to be a much nicer human being now than he was back then will serve him well going forward.
