The entire internet, including us, has been making the “Is Tiger BACK?” joke for like 5 years now. Basically, every time he stepped on course this question was posed. Now, here we are, on this day in the year of our Lord 2018, Tiger Woods is sitting atop a leaderboard. He’s back, bitches.
Does this mean he will win the tournament? No. Does it mean he’ll win the Masters or any other major? Nope. But it’s a good start for a guy who couldn’t even ride in a goddamn golf cart less than a year ago because his back was so F’d. So you’re damn right I’m going to get excited about the Mac Daddy sitting solo at the top.
Of course, Twitter lost its mind today. Everybody’s hype. Everyone is hopping aboard the Tiger train today. Even the haters who said he’d never return and that he should’ve already retired are getting that mid-2000’s feeling again. I don’t care if it’s the Valspar, it’s a real tournament with real professional golfers and he’s beating all of them.
LET’S GOOOOO. This golf season is going to be so awesome. Get me to Augusta.
