Twitter reacts to Tiger Woods' 82nd PGA Tour victory

By

The reports of the demise of Tiger Woods’ game proved to be greatly exaggerated. After a nine-week layoff during which he had surgery on his left knee for the fifth time, Woods returned to the winner’s circle in his 2019-20 season debut.

He posted a final-round 3-under 67 for a three-stroke victory over Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama at the Zozo Championship. Woods shot a 72-hole aggregate of 19-under 261 en route to his 82nd PGA Tour title, tying World Golf Hall of Fame member Sam Snead for the record.

Woods has been one victory shy of the mark since winning the Masters in April. His victory set off a celebration among his fans and led to several congratulatory tweets from the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Nick Faldo and contemporaries such as Luke Donald and Tony Finau.
