Tiger



Wow, did anyone watch the Britsh Open this past weekend? I was so touched by Tiger's win. It was his first win since his father died. Throughout the tournament, he was so calm and quiet ... and then after his final putt, a burst of emotion started overflowing out of him. I was deeply moved when he started weeping heavily as he hugged his caddy.

Is it just me or did anyone else think the caddy should have let Tiger keep crying on his shoulder instead of trying to push him off so they could walk off the course (?) Everytime I watched the reply of it, I kept thinking the caddy should have just let Tiger get it all out of his system before walking off. Anyways ....

The video clip above was made as a tribute to Tiger's father, Earl. The end is pretty cool (well, actually the whole thing is amazing) when the Superman quotes start coming in. And if you missed Tiger's win over the weekend, you can watch it again here ... and also his comments afterwards. He's pretty cool ... and amazingly gifted - the Michael Jordan of golf for sure.
