Reminds me of watching Nolan Ryan's last no-hitter. Magical!

It was pretty amazing to watch. I think the current generation is going to get a dose of Tigermania. They may not admit it but they will be looking over their shoulders like the previous guys did. I’m sure that his kids were enlightened by their first trip to Augusta National.

That was indeed a fantastic day for Golf and what a showcase for Tiger's grit and fan appeal, not to mention his shotmaking. Even those that dislike playing the game can appreciate the beauty of the course and the high drama!

The players not in his threesome could only wince when the crowds cheered his every move-having survived two back surgeries makes me appreciate his comeback even more.
Can you imagine how distracting that redshirt must be when your ball goes in the water?

I was there all day Saturday. My first Masters and it was unbelievable. I was about 30' from the pin when Tiger stuck that approach shot on 7.

Tiger sure did prove a ton of people wrong this weekend. I for one was sure he'd never win another major after what, eight surgeries and fourteen years? Oh well, wrong again like most things I'm sure of.

Congrats Tiger!

How about Tiger?!?

He played exceptionally well today, and seemed to be in control of his game and emotions.
I have been working the tournament the past 16 years, and the energy among the patrons was insane today. He definitely had the gallery on his side. Already looking forward to next year.

Having followed his career somewhat closely over the years I have to say I was beyond pleased to see his victory today. Not only was it a great comeback for him, but it was great for golf.

He was clearly an extremely talented golfer from a very young age and pushed very hard. His list of achievements are very impressive and he has made well over $1 billion dollars in his lifetime through his winnings and endorsements and sponsors.

Yes, he is a flawed person. We all are. Yes, he made some very serious mistakes in his life that have cost him and those around him a lot. Understand his upbringing and the pressure his father and mother put on him from and extremely young age and you will better understand the pressure he put on himself and how he treated those around him (like shit).

My wife and I have spent more than one evening at the Blue Martini in Orlando when on one of our many vacations there and when Tiger use to live in Windermere he use to frequent that place a lot. The stories of him partying there (and elsewhere) are legendary.

He has endured some very serious back problems and surgeries that should have left him never playing the game again, let alone even thinking of playing on the tour again. And here he wins the most prestigious golf tournament there is...for the FIFTH time!

One thing that really stood out to me was not the fan support. He has always had that. What was amazing to me was his fellow player support. He has not always had that and he has worked hard over the past few years to make amends with those fellow players and become a better person. To see their support shows that he has made great strides there.

Tiger appears to have changed for the good, and he is back! And that is good for him, for his family, his friends, fellow players, his fans and the game of golf.

I watched a bit of it yesterday at the gym. The amount of guys cheering in the gym was pretty cool. It's amazing at the response from fans that he still gets.

inb4 him hooking up with a bunch of chicks comes out.

This is probably the best thing for golf and if he gets another couple wins, expect the majors to get some of the highest ratings ever with everyone watching to see if he ties/breaks the record.

the final round was the highest tv rating since 01, and the highest morning start for 30+ years
