"That was the most unbelievable, gutsy shot I've ever seen." - Jack Nicklaus on Tiger's chip in on 16.
That's all you need to know. Tiger tied Jack for the most career PGA Tour wins with his 73rd victory today. Plenty of people out there don't want to watch Tiger anymore because of all of his exposed, personal life secrets.
Yes, the guy is flawed. For a while so was his swing. I don't condone cheating on your wife but I don't watch Tiger because I want to emulate his inner qualities. I want to see the guy dominate golf courses.
His epic shot on #16 today was one for the ages. He had the entire gallery, which was following him all day, up and cheering. He gave the ol' Tiger fist pump, too. That takes me back to when Woods was king of the Tour.
Now, he's fighting from the middle of the pack. But, at least for one Sunday, it was nice to see Tiger back in vintage form. I hope he continues to play well this year. Golf is WAY BETTER when he's near the top of the leaderboard.
There's no denying that.
