Who watched it?

I took off from working to watch the final round, hoping he'd win it.

He's a modern day Rocky Balboa.

That game is so hard, for you guys who never attempted it.

Looks so easy, until you try it.

Never been a golf fan but I respect those that do it with ease.

When I was 13 my friend's family took me on their summer vacation to a golf resort. I had never played before. I beat everybody.

The next year they took me again. I beat half the people.

The year after that they took me and I couldn't hit the ball.

Still can't hit the ball.

I outgrew the clubs and can't find clubs that fit me today. About 10 years ago someone was at my house and asked if he could hit some balls in the back yard. He had a driver about 11 feet long (well not that long but I had never seen a driver like that). I drove 5 balls perfect straight long shots every time.

I've looked ever since for a driver that long, at many pro shops and chains around here. Golf is real big around here. These "pros" try to tell me Michael Jordon uses a 30" long driver. They're full of ****.

If anyone knows where to source a VERY long driver, I'd love to know about it.

Great job Tiger Woods! I'm very happy for him.

He is nothing like Rocky. I don't remember Rocky dicking everything that moved. I don't remember rocky getting arrested for being under the influence.

I can appreciate anybody who cleans himself up and gets his game back (if, in fact, he has cleanup his personal life).

Look into a set of Callaway Strata's or Wilson Ultra's.

They make no reference to length of the driver.

I appreciate what he has done, I respect that he came back from a low point and is at the top of his sport.

Greater comebacks

George Foreman at age 45 becoming a heavy weight champ

Try getting hit in the gut and head in your mid-40s compared to hitting a little white ball

NE Patriots beating Atlanta

Mario Lemieux coming back from cancer to lead his team to the Stanely Cup.


Need more.

NOT to take away from Tiger and his accomplishment but there are greater comebacks.

The driver can be up to 48 inches max. Any club fitter can do this cheap and easily.
I am no Tigger fan but his is as good as comeback as any ever.
