    I missed a couple more:

    • I'm a "Jack-fan", because he's the guy I grew up watching, but that gets a bit cloudy now.

      Today was ELECTRIC - I too will eat some crow and pronounce Tiger is The GOAT!!

      Not crazy about the short-sleeve mock collar---are we going to have to see those on the course this or next year? Really hope not. (Koepka's Nike kit was better)

      Don't get me wrong, Tiger was the best out there today, but the guys who blew it, did it earlier on the back 9 than you would usually see (#12 & #15)--except for Cantlay, who probably won't sleep well tonight.

      Tiger didn't do anything spectacular, but he certainly didn't get in his own way!

      Every great idea starts out as a blasphemy

        Sure I have, got him banned once didn't it, or was that about shaft flex or something?.
        I was just throwing it out there, just in case Weirfan had forgotten.
        Seems he also forgot to include Tiger in his FGP picks.

          -Tiger didn't win it, the other guys lost it
          -Smaller/weaker field compared to previous years
          -Conditions were favourable to anybody to win, just look at leaderboard (ie. Fluke win)
          -Mother nature helped him. She didn't rain down upon him.
          -Changes in tee times favoure Tiger, because only he wakes up at 3:45am to prepare.
          -Still 3 Majors behind Jack

          Did I miss anything?
          Probably a smiley or `lol` for the crew who just dropped in. We`re a bit like a mob looking for a hater to trash lol.

            Cantlay probably didn't realized he was leading at the Masters for a hole or 2 until he watches the tape after.

            I also think he was jinxed by IBF claiming that Cantlay and Top 5 are good friends. I could almost hear the TV viewers across the world with CBS feed collectively went 'Whaaat?'

A day doesn't get much better than that.
              That's great to hear Mike.

                  A relatively low stress low drama round for Tiger.

                  Did he outmolinari Molinari?

                    I don't think so. I remember Faldo saying on Friday that the best thing that could happen to Tiger would be if the weather goes sour (i.e. wind and/or excessive rain). He knows the course better than anyone and probably knows within a foot of where the ball will end up if he hits it anywhere on the course. It was a true show of the wily veteran picking his spots to strike. I thought for sure on 8 or 9 that it was over, I didn't think for a second that Molinari was going to dunk it on 12. Despite looking a bit shaky with the driver and irons early his scrambling was insane.

                    Either way, it doesn't matter how it gets done, the lowest score wins and I'm so pumped Woods came out on top.

                    • Best. Masters. EVER...period.

                      A few had Molinari as a lock after 6...all I said was "the final round starts on #12"; guess I was right.

                        Ok, this is gonna make the thread detour...

                        I think it's great that after all the health issues that he was able to come back. I'll admit I was rooting for him.

                        But I understand why some still don't like him. He passed himself off as the family man, being a great spokesperson for many companies and taking big $$ to do it all while he was feeding us a lie. He wasn't the person he seemed to be. That's disappointing. "Say it ain't so Joe."

                        But there's no doubt he's had the biggest athletic comeback we'll likely ever see. And that's something to be admired for sure.

                          • I thought it was a great day of coverage, with an amazing leader board.

                            Tiger lasted the longest, and made a few on the way in.

                            Yes others did falter, but that's commonplace during Majors.

                            I was happy to see it. I never thought it would happen again.

                            If I am Koepka, I KNOW I am going to win more majors.
                            Still getting the hang of this game!

                              • I thought Tiger had played himself out of it after the bogey on #10. He wasn't driving the ball consistently, missing left at #2 and right at #8 #10 and #11.

                                The par putt on #12 was clutch then he seemed to find his driver for #13 #14 #15 and #17, and was striping it with confidence.

                                This was easily the best major I've ever watched, back when Tiger had the chipping yips and was out of the top 1,000 I was embarrassed for him and thought why is he doing this. Turns out he knows himself best, and knew exactly what he is capable of.
