Tiger was one of only two golfers to shoot under par for all four rounds of the tournament.

Impressive stuff - although it must be easier when your nearest realistic challenger all day has an attitude like this: "I think he really just kind of nailed his comeback. It was great to have a front row seat watching maybe the greatest of all time doing what he does best - winning golf tournaments."
It was great to watch? You're not there to watch, GMac, you're the man in the arena, so get some dust, sweat and blood on your face and stop admiring the Tiger.
Still, I'm glad to see Woods win again. The sport needs a strong Woods, no matter what some of the old farts say about "the game went on before he was here and it will go on after he's gone". The statement is true, but so is that fact that as an industry, professional golf is worth a hell of a lot more money since Tiger showed up.
Sorry to see Ernie miss out on a Masters spot. I hope he can win next week and get in, but frankly his putting just looks too dodgy these days for him to close one out. Sad, really. He was such a good putter in his day.

I think that was an after-the-fact-let's-be-nice statement from him.
He was trying pretty damn hard the entire round, including that nice 50ft eagle.
Tiger's consistency (for the tournament and the final round) has definitely made things interesting again. It was nice to see him win on a course he's familiar with dominating on.
Sorta like Augusta...
