5 birdies in 6 holes. Only one player is within 6 shots of Tiger. This is outrageous. pic.twitter.com/Ws6A5Neayo

Feels like 12, 15 years ago, happily chained to my favorite chair watching the field chase Tiger in a big event on a Saturday afternoon…few things like it.

Modern golf: Loud cheers, limited applause. Hands are occupied taking pictures and video with their phones.

Tiger has recreated himself again and his putter is hotter than fondue.
Phenomenal to watch.
