    I used to think he was a bit of an arrogant wanker, but he has genuinely been through it, and looked so happy to win today.
    Made up for the lad!!

    Golf. A game that gets in the way of a good walk!

    It was an unbelievable achievement, he wasn’t expected to win a tournament nevermind the biggest one in golf!

    It was a good achievement, I'm not sure about the 'unbelievable', but do we need reminding of it every day?
    As for 'wasn't expected to win', I think he's been expected to win every tournament he has ever entered.

    This guy come from the top dropped over 1100 places and managed to fight back. That’s an amazing feat. He wasn’t expected to make the cut in some tournaments this year nevermind pick up a major win

    An unbelievable achievement for sure, anyone who says it isn't clearly doesn't understand life or sport. The depths this guy has been to (understandably some of his own doing) mentally and physically to have the drive and desire to win another green jacket is truly incredible.

    multiple knee surgeries, 4 back surgeries along with neck and leg issues, its incredible he's still able to walk the distance of a golf course.

    If his Swedish ex-Mrs had swung a golf club with something like his accuracy, he's have been 6ft under years ago.

    He might be good but can he get the ball past those bloody windmill sails like I can! I once had a round of golf at a course on Southend seafront. Bloody little bridges and windmills all over the place! Easy peasy! Gimme that green overcoat thingy!

    His real name is Eldrick Tont Woods.
    No wonder he embraces his nickname.
