    Doug makes an extremely potent point about why Tiger’s 2019 Masters win touched so many people: nostalgia (and winning) overshadowed all of Tiger’s ills in many people’s minds.

      If you’ve ever been to Augusta on a Sunday with Tiger in Red, you know Tigers roars from the crowd are so distinguishable from everyone else.

              I knew if healthy he'd win a major again as in most cases the mind takes care of its demons itself as we age .add young kids done deal

                I agree on the nostalgia point, but most Tiger fans stood by him through it all! It only makes him human/relatable, the mistakes.. We never stopped believing simply because he's just too great to doubt.. and he just proved that yet again! 🐯

                    He did decline after the death of his father, correct? We cheer because he was able to change and save himself.

                      Who cares if he loved anyone back. Some of us just like to see greatness for what it is.

                          Tiger isnt arguably the greatest iron player in history...he is undisputedly the greatest in history. Only tiger could play the British open and win without the driver.

                            I never stopped believing nor being a fan. I thought society was hypocritical of his cheating because he was the face of golf, a very clean distinguished sport. In basketball a ton of players cheat.

                              Nostalgia?? Tiger was in contention the past 2 majors. He was player of the year not too long ago in 2013. He's a top 10 world ranked golfer. He's not some old has-been that came from nowhere to win the Masters. He's been out because of injuries, not because he's too old and can't contend anymore. Tiger is 43, not 93. He's not grandpa that just came out of retirement to win again. He's in better shape physically than you, than me, than probably 99% of the population. Please... just stop. You sound really stupid and ignorant...

                                mhc 121 true but 43 is still pretty old and all of the “experts” declared he was finished.

                                      Tiger "under the influence" - of MEDS that he didn't know would make him react like that. Plus he was "found on the side of the road" in his car (stationary) near his home - not actually driving on the road.

                                        How powerful is nostalgia? Well, as you can tell by my icon, I play music. Most of the bands I play with do "oldies" music, meaning music from the 60's 70's 80's. People of that age group flock to these engagements. Why? Because it reminds them of when they were in their prime, and life was carefree.... before the day to day rigors of life and family set in. (I am also of that age group) Nostalgia is VERY powerful. Wonderful video. Thank you!

                                          I love Tiger Woods. If it wasn't for Tiger the different races of the world wouldn't feel golf was a cool sport to play. Because before any of his success the sport was predominantly white and for good reason too all previous Champions were white. But because of Tiger I feel he made it possible for everyone around the world to play golf and not feel prejudiced against for being of a different background. No one on Earth besides Jordan has had a major global impact on a sport than Tiger Woods. And that's why everyone loves Tiger

                                          This was so emotional because everybody knows that horrible feeling when people tell you that they’ve given up on you and we know how amazing it could feel to prove them wrong.

                                          No maybe it's jus the fact he came back from hitting rock BOTTOM and climbed back to the top... Regardless of what happened nobody is perfect but the dude. Got. It altogether and. And made it happen... And I don't even like golf or. Tiger...

                                              @MegaPat223 they were nowhere near as good as they are today. Just like any of the top 10 sprinters in 1980 wouldnt beat any of the top 10 sprinters today.

                                              I really wonder why Tiger wore purple on Saturday 🤔 and why on Monday so many sports commenters wore PURPLE also 🤔🤔. Can I add that the biggest Masonic figure of them all Shaquille O'neal was wearing purple yesterday... coincidence ?? I really think the Masters was rigged for Tiger to win.
