    One thing is certainly for sure. Tiger went from being remembered as one of the greatest golfers of all time to being remembered as a serial cheater who ruined his life with lies and deceit, and now he will be remembered as one of the greatest golfers of all time.

    History will remember him as a hero.

    Terrible person? That's for you to decide.

    10-20 years ago most would agree but the guy hit rock bottom personally and with his health. Not the same guy off the greens these days and it’s nice to see a reformed Tiger. More of a family man now and very friendly with the players on the course and in the clubhouse. Couldn’t say that back in the day, wouldn’t even talk to most of them.

    LMAO
    I think I'd do better in a round of golf vs. Tiger than you'd do in the ring against Moorer!

    This ain't about you and me.

    On your way to the bagel shop tomorrow, ask every man you see on the street "Who is Michael Moorer?"

    Quoted from Psw757:

    If Tiger can drive it like this past weekend and not miss as many 3-6 foot putts as he did on day 1-2 he is back to being almost unbeatable. He sinks some of those easy putts in the early rounds, he beats or gets very close to his best -18 finish at the masters. Really a solid tournament for him.

    You are right on this one and this was forgotten in all the fuss. He missed a number of really makable and fairly short putts over the course of the tournament. If he makes even half of those it’s possible he would have just run away with this one.

    Yep..they were almost writing him off after round 2 because his putting inside 8ft was like 84th out of 87 players and 8-15 feet was ranked around 49th. Putts over 15 feet he was ranked number 1.

    He did improve all around putting over the weekend but yeah, he makes half those missed short putts and it’s a run away.

    Quoted from Electrocute:

    Ok, back to pinball!

    Yeah, TIGER WOODS PINBALL!!

    What a triumph, what a comeback, what a redemption story! Sheer will and determination meets physical committment and sacrifice...as well as a new, evolving understanding that there’s way more to life - and being a man - than just trying to intimidate your opponents.

    There will be moralistic people that refuse to accept this as a celebration of the human spirit, a story of personal growth and maturity, and one of those famous, storied “second American acts” that this country swears by and is famous for. Not to mention just a great achievement for Tiger Woods. I just hope these people don’t consider themselves Christians or identify as Americans. If you naysayers are reading this, I hope you can find an ounce of inspiration and compassion and sheer wonder in what Tiger just accomplished. It’s wonderous, thrilling and something to admire.

    Sport, and certainly golf, just got a real shot in the arm. Man, that’s what it’s all about.

    Tiger, you go bruh. Pass Jack!

    Quoted from xsvtoys:

    There was something there that seemed different this time. Tiger has always been a cool customer, no doubt about it. But then again, he would certainly let emotions bubble up during a match. If he missed a shot, he could curse, even whack his club in the ground. If he made a great putt, he would fist pump it and get riled up. Not this time. The ride was not clean and smooth the whole way. He had a few misses, a few slip-ups. When these happened, he did not over react. In fact, he hardly reacted at all. There were some great shots as well. Again, he did not react to these either. All the way, right up until the very very end when he put in the last putt, he maintained the same face. Not upset, not happy, not even grim determination really. Just calm, cool, emotional control.
    Is that a product of his getting older, or a result that comes out of all the struggles he had to go through to make this comeback? I don't know, but it doesn't bode well for his future competitors. When you are that good and you can maintain emotional composure and channel that energy into performance, you are going to be hard to beat!

    Well said. I thought exactly the same. Tiger was zen like. Maybe he didn’t want to go too Alpha and risk not winning, but I think he’s just a different, wiser, more mature person and golfer now. I don’t think he’ll rattle this generation of youngins like he did the previous generation that absolutely wilted at his dominance. But I do think he can beat this generation straight up, and if they feel that way too, well then game on.

    Also, there’s a lot of shit that can go sideways in a marriage, and blame can be assigned everywhere. I get it that infidelity is a “sin” (although I don’t ascribe to that definition) and usually a broken promise, but why is that always the principle focus of a broken marriage? I do not doubt that Tiger was a total dog, but maybe the marriage sucked and he didn’t have control. I don’t know. And yeah, he was banging strippers and everything else that moved. All I can say to that is go big or go home if you’re not committed to your marriage - or if you have some mental problems, etc. If you’re not a little envious about the sex than I guess you’re quite devout.

    Regardless, how long does someone have to pay for their transgressions? Is a bad couple years - where no one died or suffered a heinous crime - really something to hold against a guy for life? Especially a guy who went through therapy and seems to have straightened his life out?

    I mean, it’s not like Vid1900, who totally fleeced a guy by paying $500 on some old acid drenched Bally boards and, when blinded sided, threw a 6’ 200 pound kid through a wall. That shit is unforgivable.
