As bad as everyone says 2016 was, it did give us one thing. The return of Eldrick Tiger Woods. Earlier this month, Tiger made his return to professional golf after an almost two year break at the Hero World Challenge, and while there was definitely still some work to be done, his swing looked in control, he looked confident, and, most importantly, he looked healthy enough to compete in 2017.
Big Cat turns 41 today, and since I doubt any of you got invited to celebrate with him and Jeets doing God knows whatever it is you do when you’re damn near a billionaire on your birthday, do the next best thing and tune into the 15 hour marathon Golf Channel has running of all his major highlights. Relive all the greatness Tiger’s given us over the past 20 years. Every fist pump, all the club twirls, the icy stares, every time he made a Sunday run and snatched any hopes of victory out of Sergio’s hands. Some of them might even be new to you because you were too hungover to remember what the hell was going on when you were watching it live.
Burning a day of however much PTO you might have been saving is definitely worth vegging out on your couch to spend the day watching Tiger stalk 14 major championships. If you’ve started your NYE weekend early, tell your spouse those plans are going to have to wait till tomorrow; hopefully, she’s as understanding as mine and will be glued to the TV right next to you. .
