    Just 1 shot back entering final round.

    Hasn't won since 2013. LET'S GO TIGER!

    Could make the majors very interesting if he pulls this out.

    If he can just play well tomorrow, it will certainly show something. Regardless of how long it's been since he won, how long has it been since he put four solid rounds together?

    A two shot deficit seems insurmountable to Tiger today.

    Man. That was amazing. I thought it was completely over after that 17 tee shot from that far away.

    If the man stays healthy, he is going to win another major or two.

    If he can get the putter locked in, he may be the favorite for Augusta. Club head speed is now the fastest on tour.

    Short game is elite. He swung the fastest driver of the year on Saturday after only a few rounds in the last 4 years. And exemplified he still is clutch on hole 17.

    His odds are already at 8-1 for the masters and he has two more tune up tourneys.

    I'm glad he's back and competitive again. He's no longer far and away the best but it's only good for golf that he's playing in the last groupings on Sunday. I'm certainly interested again. I hope he has a good showing at Augusta.

    It was good to see him compete over four rounds. But, man, he looked worn out coming down the stretch. (although he still played the last three holes well).

    Worn out? I don't think that is the case. Guy is in incredible shape. Obviously isn't that typical 40 year old.

    I have found myself thinking about golf at least three times today.

    Zero times in the last several months before Saturday.

    Tiger's back!

    Tiger shoots a first round 68. Currently in second place, one stroke behind Jimmy Walker.

    Absence makes the heart grow fonder indeed.

    I forgot how much I love watching Tiger play golf. For the last few years I only watched the final rounds of majors and with limited interest (Sergio pulling out the Masters was amazing).

    But now I am enjoying a Saturday round of the Arnold Palmer where Tiger is several strokes back more than I thought possible.

    Can't wait for the Masters and am praying Tiger is in contention. Would make for some of the best TV of all time. And even if he doesn't win theres still 3 more majors. In fact until he wins, as long as he stays healthy, every tournament he plays will be must see for me. I love this man.

    Watched an entire round of golf for the first time in I don't know how long. Tiger made a strong run until he made some bad mistakes in the last couple of holes. Top 5 finish at -10 after getting within a shot of the lead. Not bad having started the day 5 down. Rory went nuts on the back 9 to win easily this week.

    He's getting it back and now it looks like he's having fun. No more of the cursing outbursts. Just a smile. This year's Masters is going to be fun...

    Tiger, Phil, and Rory all playing some good golf lately. Might be the most interesting Masters in quite a while.
