I second this motion. Good to see the hard work and effort has paid off for TW to overcome the physical and life issues he has went through.

Congrats to Tiger Woods on his latest win! I believe he's a major reason why golf remains important to most people.

Wasn't a huge fan back in the day - or more accurately, was a bit put off by the over-exposure by the media. But have become a big fan after his struggles, especially when all the anti-Tigers folks became really loud.

Was really surreal today - almost seemed like a reboot of an old show. Updated characters, but the same story. Next week is going to be really cool to watch. And agree that hopefully, 2019 is like 1999 for him.

Not a Tiger fan in his heyday because I rarely watched golf back then except for the Masters - and then his personal problems were a real turnoff. He's plowed through a lot of crap the past few years and come out on the other side a better person, it appears to me.

So, really nice to see Tiger do it today.

Commies today said Tiger hit the gym Saturday night for a workout - after playing 18 holes. He does look fit - probably needs to keep back muscles and core strong to protect his back. Four back surgeries -ye gads - he's lucky they were successful.

The past few years, I've been watching more golf - enjoy many of the younger players - and I still root for Phil Mickelson.

But Tiger deserved today - and Justin Rose deserved the $10MM FedEx Cup. That's a h*ll of a payday.

Tiger was one putt away from winning both they said - but, imo, that would have been a bit much - because, as Tiger so nicely said, Justin had been very consistent all season. He deserved it.

Now, if only Serena Williams could take a page out of Tiger's book and learn how to properly compliment her opponents.

Congrats, Tiger.

He was one putt away... but it was out of his control. Rose's birdie on 18 put him in a tie for 4th. Had he not made that birdie, he would have been tied for 6th. Tiger needed Rose to be in a 3 way tie for 5th or worse (among like 5 other scenarios that all played out) to win the FedEx cup. And it may have been closer than that - Rose's approach shot was 6" away from being stuck in the rough with an awkward lie as opposed to getting a great bounce onto the green. So props to him for hitting a clutch shot.

I agree, he's been through a lot. Back surgery is no fun, and then to come back to a win. He does seem like he enjoyed this win more than the ones earlier. Even letting the public see his emotions with this win. He mentioned its been 5 years since a win, his kids were too young to really see him win and know what he meant to golf.

TIL - professional golfers do A LOT of breathing exercises when they play.

The Match turned out to be a bit better entertainment than I initially thought.

a new year, and that means some drastic changes to the Rules of Golf have officially gone into effect.
