    Well, that was embarrassing. Still don't think the Clippers will make this a close series but you have to give it to them for coming back from being 31 points down in the 3rd to win game 2. This will either be a massive wake up call for the Warriors to not sleep walk through the playoffs. Either that, or they are showing signs of just not caring about being dominant anymore. Like they are cool with being just a step better than everyone over being great.

    It's really awesome to see him show up and actually play the way we all expect him to play. Its definitely not fair to put that kind of pressure on him every single tournament, but he battled through it and came out on top.

    I bet he's feeling like a king right now, and he deserves it.

    Very true. It's unbelievable how much pressure he has had in the last decade to 'come back'. From his personal crisis moments to his severe back problems and everything he has gone through, its amazing he ever even got back on a golf course at all. Let alone win a major a few years later.

    He has to be feeling very humbled and relieved right now. No one will ever be able to question him ever again. Not with any real seriousness because he won again. And he didn't just win a cake tournament where the competition was easy or didn't show up. He won the best major in golf and did it against the best golfers in the world who all played really really well.

    Wonder the same. I know there are a few really technical guys in the NFL but you don't hear too much high level science talk coming out of most athletes, at least not when it comes to trying to perfect their skill. Golf certainly lends itself to being higher minded in that respect than say football, basketball, hockey, baseball, etc.

    Maybe some in the Olympics are similar. Though I don't know of any. I could see this talk coming the most from auto racing, like Indy or NASCAR.

    He is a very interesting guy. In a sport that relays so heavily on the equipment you use and how you use it, golf is very unique that respect over the big 4. Maybe tennis is also a similar technical sport? Either way, swings and clubs have evolved a lot in the last 100 years and it seems like he might be evolving the game to an even higher level. Good on him.

    Oh yeah, the final two rounds of highlights:

    2019 Masters - Round 3 Highlights

    2019 Masters - Final Round Highlights

    Had a feeling when Tiger was paired with Finau and Molinari in the final pairing for the final round that experience would win out.

    I'm stunned, after 14 years Tiger Woods battled back through so much to capture yet another Masters win. We have another thread going on about this but I wanted to start a somewhat different conversation now. Where does Tiger go from here?

    He won it all in 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005. And now he has won the Masters more times than any other golfer besides Jack Nicklaus who got 6.

    Jack Nickalus still has the most major wins of any golfer ever at 18. 6 at the Masters, 4 US Open wins, 3 Brit Open wins and 5 PGA Champ wins.

    Tiger is again second on the list with 15 total -- 5 now at the Masters, 3 at the US Open, 3 at the Brit Open and 4 at the PGA Championship.

    Tiger Woods is 43 years old and at one point not that long ago he was ranked in the high 100's for best golfer in the world. As of today he will clearly be back in the top 10. Perhaps top 5, maybe even 1-3. Can he find it in himself to vie for more major wins to seriously challenge Jack's 18? He is only 3 away. Though winning even one is so hard with the competition of today.

    I figured Tiger was done, like most. But he proved every single doubter wrong and now he is basically the living embodiment of one of if not the best come back stories in sports history. I have to think now he has at least 3-5 more years of competitive play left, judging by the fact that Phil Mickelson is 48 and still competing at a high level.

    Where does Tiger go from here? Do you think this was a one-off or is Tiger, the Tiger of old, back and in full force?

    I was cautiously optimistic in the first round for Tiger to do well. Held out hope for him to win. But I didn't expect it. It had been so long. But going into the last 5 holes you just knew it was going to happen. And it just did. Pretty amazing moment, Tiger Woods just won his 5th Masters!

    Did everyone see how excited he was right after? I'll need to find a video to post. Really happy for the guy. This is one of his most impressive wins ever as well.

    Tiger's playing solid but crazy to see Tony Finau shot up the leaderboard. He is -8 on the day through 15. -11 overall. That's awesome for him. Same for Webb Simpson. -8 on the day and he is done but tied for 2nd at -9 overall. Funny how much fortunes can change in just one round. Apparently anyone can make up 8 to 10 strokes in a single day. So it's ANYONE'S game going into the final round.

    Woods is -2 on the day through 11 so plenty of chances for him to catch Finau. He did well on the back nine in Round 2. Hoping for a repeat of a few more birdies.

    2019 Masters - Round 1 Highlights
    2019 Masters - Round 2 Highlights

    Will try and post round by round highlights here. So Tiger started off pretty good at -2 under and I thought he was good until the rest of the leaderboard finished up and he was down 4 strokes after the first round. Felt like he was good but not really in contention.

    Then the 2nd round, he went off. Basically started at hole 9 with that long birdie putt. Then another birdie on 11. That was great. Another birdie on 14. And 15 another. And he almost birdied again on 18 to tie the leaders. Ended up 1 stroke off the top spot with a round 2 68. He now officially has a great chance to win this year.

    Should be said, Pats just picked up Austin Seferian-Jenkins. He is certainly talented enough to make a difference. No one replaces Gronk's talent in free agency. But this is a good pick up for them.
