Massive congrats @JustinRose99 for winning the #FedExCup and of course @TigerWoods for winning #80 on @PGATOUR. So well deserved for both. Such a cool experience walking down the last hole with all that excitement! Onwards and upwards. https://t.co/pnH5Wa5lyx

Tiger Woods: “just suck it up and hit good golf shots”. Kinda sums it up. @TigerWoods you sure did.

Everybody now jumping on the #TigerWoods bandwagon- it’s hilarious; these people crucified him in his darkest times & now they’re rooting for him- great is great & I never stopped rooting for him to find this moment again in his career & life – go do the damn thing TIGER WOODS 🏆

Notice something today golf fans, Tiger plays everything off the center of the greens. Hits the required shot and doesn’t short-side his approach shots. This is exactly what Jack did. He will not play needlessly aggressive. Let the chasers make the mistakes.

Doing something I rarely ever do……watching golf. Pulling for TW. A win by Tiger today will be huge for the game.

…and now I’m crying all over again. Watching Tiger compete at the highest level is always something to behold. And to be able to do so after everything… is nothing short of great.

And a few folks from outside the world of sports had their say, too.
Tiger is playing great. Looks like a big win could happen. Very exciting! @TigerWoods
