Tiger: tees off
Me: okay, stay calm. It’s still early and-
Also me: PREP THE GREEN JACKET and MOVE OVER DJ, THERE’S A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN

He's flagging irons. I'm preparing my will in case I'm gone by the time someone comes home.

Because of his physical limitations rotating, Tiger's early swings seem far more restrained. Gotta believe that will help him keep the ball in play more often.

Top 18……… 4 rounds no grabs of the back would be good https://t.co/P1f4fRMfW8

Should I have been so eager for Tiger to be back? #EasyTiger

Tiger is the only player that can say "BE GOOD!" on the 3rd hole of the tournament and everyone loves it ???
Great to have you back @TigerWoods ???

Timing is everything as @TigerWoods turns 4 into 6 on the 9th hole! Chipping looks particularly nasty around the greens so wouldn’t read anything into that particular chip.

In case you didn’t read the 3 million tweets before, just a little heads up.. “el tigre” is back.

Say what you want about Tiger’s chipping, but that chip on 17 was fantastic.
