    Super stoked on this win.
    I remember Thanksgiving '09 when my loudmouth aunt read the report off her phone about Tiger's personal life collapsing in an instant.
    Quite the fall from grace.

    I had the same first grade teacher as Tiger so I always rooted for him. He also golfed at many of my local courses in Cypress, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach and East Long Beach.

    Most dominant athlete I had ever seen '97-2008. Love this redemption story.

    stoked as well
    society loves to build people up, tear them down, and then cheer them if they rise from the ashes
    it's fucked up
    tiger made some mistakes and fucked up his own life
    the only people who truly had the right to criticize him were the few people it affected
    fuck everyone else
    i truly thought he'd never win another major, and can't tell you how happy i am to be proven wrong
    bravo tiger!

    I am with you on this.

    I have no feelings for the guy one way or another. I am - at best - a dogshit golfer - so I am not a true vote here. I always thought he was a pompous ass, but on the links, the guy was nails. In that regard, Mantle, Bonds, Brady, Wilt, and McEnroe were, in their sports, colossal fuckmooks who nevertheless dominated their game. All took hits at some juncture, yet bounced back.

    Bravo for Tiger, indeed. Not many golfers have made mincemeat of Augusta or birdied Amen Corner 75% of the time, so good for him.

    I still think that Hogan, Snead, and Nicklaus are superior to him. Give those guys Tiger's equipment and each would have taken five strokes off of every round he ever played. But that's bullshit, too. I'm happy for him. Go win five more and pass the Golden Bear. So be it.

    But the press is insufferable. They predict he'll win every fucking tourney he plays in a day before the tourney. For eleven years, he'd won two tourneys, one of them a major. Now, he takes his fifth green jacket and Twitter is saying, "See!!! We told you ...HE'S BACK LIKE WE SAID!" Shit, there's a guy who stands on Ball and Magnolia near my house with a "THE END IS NEAR!" sign since Reagan was Prez. One day, he'll be right. These journalists have the selfsame percentage of predictive accuracy.

    Yeah.. No. We can agree to disagree. Unlike many fanboi's I never adored him though I was impressed at the pure skill at ball striking
    I'm surprised that Molinari crashed and burned so dramatically with two double bogies within 3 holes and his round was 8 strokes higher than yesterday.
    And then Keopka missed his 'easy' 4 footer birdie which gave Tiger all the room he needed.. enough to win on a bogey
    Anticlimatic in a way because one thing Tiger doesn't do is fade on Sunday's

    Still I remain no longer a fan of this man. Truly a playing legend but a POS as a human.
    Hope he never break Jack's records

    Mayock's gotta keep the good times rollin and knock the draft out of park next week.
    Dallas built a dynasty from that Herschel Walker trade and they can do the same on the backs of Mack and Cooper

    Wilson threw down the deadline and Seattle caved, NFL record 4yrs/$140M extension to stay with the Seahawks
    So much for NY..bad news for the Rams too. Rams better have a plan for Gurley..Goff was trash without Gurley @ elite level

    7 weeks between home games is a bit much

    Sources: #Raiders coach Jon Gruden and GM Mike Mayock sent their scouts home for the weekend and they are not expected to return by draft time. The belief is they don’t know who to trust and wanted to clear the room.

    Damn amazing. They were already the most intriguing team in the draft. Now it's to an absurd level. I'm trying to figure out why McKenzie's twin bro is still on the scouting staff. You can't trust him after you fired his brother? Ya think? Lol

    When I started scouting in 2003, most teams allowed scouts and coaches to see the draft board. By 2012, most teams only allowed 3-4 people (HC/GM/Personnel Director/College Director) to have access to the board. This isn’t that unusual



    OK.

    Ok....well that explains another curious Raider 1st pick choice. With all their picks, they couldn't get this guy lower in the draft and get a better D line guy or pass rusher?
