I am not going to lie to you, there's no other reason for this post but to appreciate a couple of Tiger's finer moments at Augusta.
The Masters starts this Friday morning in Australia and oh dear I am excited.
So let's just do nothing more than take a look back arguably Tiger's two best moments from The Masters.
But first some stats from Tiger @ Augusta.
23 starts & 5 wins. We all know that.
But how about a further 7 Top 5's and 2 other Top 10's. He's missed the cut just the once, that was in 1996 when he carded back-to-back 75's. He came out the next year and won.
Pretty impressive record right?
Righto, no surprises here, let's just enjoy them.
The 16th hole chip-in in 2005, iconic! The crowd erupts as the ball sits precariously over the hole and then as well know, well...just watch it.
Poor old Chris DiMarco, if you remember, he and Tiger went on to tie and it went down to a playoff. They both finished at -12 that year, while third place was shared by Luke Donald and Retief Goosen, both 7 shots back.
How close was Chris DiMarco to winning The Masters, fair dinkum.
The other one that really gets the blood boiling was of course Tiger's come back victory in 2019.
The return to glory as Jim Nantz described it.
The turning point in 2019 came when 4 of the last 5 players, including Woods' playing partners Francesco Molinari and Tony Finau put their tee shots in the drink on the iconic 12th hole. Tiger stayed in control, needing only a bogey up the last to seal victory.
And as they say, the rest is history.
Tiger enters this week not in great form, that'd be fair to say.
But one thing you should never do it write off a champion. $31 currently on PlayUp is a nice price for a guy that has won @ Augusta 5 times.
Is he going well enough to make it 6 green jackets this year?
Well, as I said, never write off a champion.
