Tiger Woods as the idol of most golf fans in the world (Part 2)

Woods has won the PGA Tour 81 times, only behind Sam Snead (82 times)

From the image of being dirty by sex scandals, broken marriages to the degradation of the body after a series of surgeries, but the fans have never once turned against him like what the sponsors have done.

When Woods sat out for two years, the greatness of “Super Tiger” grew, because all people have is memories, images that no one has ever done on the stage. For many people, remembering about golf means remembering Tiger Woods.

When Woods played back with a five-year title, everyone was watching, even though he couldn’t dominate like he used to.

That’s why fans are crazy about winning at Masters 2019. Memories are now a reality again. The red Sunday shirt sparkled like never before. Excitements have come, from young people who have never seen Woods win major, to older generations always thought the American golfer would not be able to win again.

The moment when the 43-year-old star was crowned at the Masters when everything seemed old, despite the fact that 22 years was enough to make golf change too much.

Woods 15 times major champion, only three titles behind Jack Nicklaus’s record

Woods was no longer invincible. The Masters 2019 is the toughest major of all the times he has won, not only because he has gone through many challenges in life and health problems. Woods has never won a major tournament, having to compete with so many candidates at the bottom nine.

Woods wins because he plays better and smarter than his opponents. “Super Tiger” was champion by ability, not by any mystic factor, as his fans had hoped.

Woods atone for those who have loved him, who forgive his past mistakes. Fans probably can not forget Woods used to be sexually addicted and cheated on his wife, each addicted to alcohol and drugs leading to accidents and examination.

It is also not forgotten how much Woods got depressed after the 80-match rounds in 2015 and wanted to give up everything. But in the end, they still want Tiger Woods to be the greatest golfer in history, not Jack Nicklaus or Sam Snead.

Woods’ first Masters title in 1997 greatly influenced the next stage of golf, while the fifth Blue Shirt he wore last week recalled beautiful memories.

No other golf event in this decade inspires more than Woods being crowned at the Masters last week. 22 years ago, no championship created a fever as big as the first title of “Super Tiger” in Augusta. At that time, the 21-year-old man who had just become a professional for half a year was shocked by winning the Blue Shirt with a record score (-20) and a record gap from the rest (12 sticks).

Woods caused a global fever in 1997 with the Blue Shirt Masters

In 1997, Tim Finchem was a member of the PGA Tour for only three years, witnessing the young rookie champion three times after only 15 entries in the system. Finchem has now retired for three years, has his own Blue Shirt – a member of Augusta National. He was at the Masters all week, before watching the last round of Sunday with millions of people, in a very different perspective.

In 1997, everyone was eager to see what Woods would look like when she became a professional. The golfer previously dominated junior and amateur tournaments, winning the US Junior Amateurs and US Amateurs three times in a row.

It took only two months for Woods to qualify for the Tour Championship after winning twice in the first seven PGA Tour tournaments. At the beginning of the following year, Woods went on to win the Tournament of Champions. Then in April, he had an impressive performance never before seen at the Masters.

So far, it is still the most important victory of Woods. It has completely changed the context of the golf village. This sport has suddenly become more colorful thanks to Thai-American golfer.

Now they know so much. 22 years is the gap between the first and most recent major championship of Woods. A lot has happened, making the 15th major in Augusta last week as significant as the first Blue Shirt.
