Tiger Woods’ late rally at the Valspar Championship, where he made a 43-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole and had a putt at the last to force a playoff, drove the Twitterverse crazy.
Players, athletes and even celebrities lost their collective minds watching Woods nearly come from behind and capture his 80th PGA Tour victory. Take a look at the social media hysteria.
Anyone else just scream when that putt went in

Seriously though, Tiger being BACK means there’s gonna be so much more sponsorship money flooding back into the game, regardless of the austerity the world inevitably faces. That hat deal is looking sweet.
