This is already a spectacular day... Tiger wins another major, and Game of Thrones comes back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FWIW, I give Bronn good odds to survive.  LOL... amidst all the death and decay surrounding him.  The last 6 episodes will be truly epic...

Six hours well spent as far as I'm concerned.

That fist pump if he would've sank the par putt was about to be epic. So close!

Today's a damn good day

I love that his kids were there to celebrate with him... especially given that his dad was there with him when he won his first Masters.

First, Virginia coming from losing to a 16-seed to winning the NC a year later and now Tiger. All in the last week. Redemption stories like these are why I love sports.

Pretty amazing story. Tiger was written off several years ago with all his back injuries, and for good reason. It looked like he would never play again. Even when he returned many thought he would never win again. I was one who doubted it would ever happen again. It shows you can never discount the great ones. To win the Masters after all these years and injuries is truly remarkable. 

Now that he has his 15th major, will he catch Nicklaus at 18? After today I don’t think you can count him out. Jack won his 18th at 45 years old. Tiger is 43. If he can maintain his health he has a good shot at it. His driving which has always been his nemesis has improved significantly. He is missing less fairways. His putting was actually very average this tournament. If he had made more of those 5-10 foot putts he would have won going away. If he gets more consistent with the putter he will indeed win more majors. 

There are very few true legends that come along in a lifetime. Tiger is one of those.

I was pulling for fellow Aztec Xander but he had a couple of mental lapses at the end.  He's young and will have more chances to win a jacket.

Only MWC golfers that go to UNLV can win the masters

Too little, too late.  Tiger has "the LOOK" now (as modified by chewing gum - Wrigley endorsements anyone?)...

I noticed Mickelson was chewing gum as well.  Could it be that there were cocoa leafs in that gum that they were chewing?  Peruvians chew those leafs too.  Just a thought.

He’s a very good player. I’m excited to see how he grows.

If Adam Scott could just putt even a little bit, he would’ve won five or six majors by now.

He is the personification of transcendent. Went to a bar with a few friends this morning to watch the final round, and the place was packed at 8 a.m. If he wasn’t in contention there would’ve been my group of three and a cranky server. Tiger is must-watch even for people who don’t care about golf.

Here's something insane... Tiger was apparently up at 3:45AM in order to get his routine down for the final round. That's freaking crazy.
