Off the Tee: 2019 Masters Recap
The Masters has been known for its memorable moments for more than 80 years now, but what happened in the 2019 edition of golf's first major tournament on the calendar was the height of drama - even by Augusta's standards.
Tiger Woods, staring down an onslaught of young talent looking to write their own green jacket folklore and, at age 43, trying to keep old man time at arm's length just a little longer, turned the golf world upside down, coming from three strokes down to win his fifth Masters and 15th major tournament.
In this edition of 'Off The Tee', Joel Harrington from 4 Deep Golf blog and I discuss Tiger's unexpected return to greatness.
It was his first win at Augusta since 2005 and his first victory in a major since the 2008 U.S. Open.
The victory completes one of the biggest comebacks in sports history.
In the last 20 majors (Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, PGA Championship) before this season, Tiger didn't even play in ten events, he missed the cut in five others, finished no better than 17th in three others, but did manage a pair of top ten finishes - tying for sixth at last year's British Open, and finishing second to Brooks Keopka at last year's PGA Championship.
Here's my conversation with Joel about Tiger's magical 2019 run at Augusta:
