Tiger Woods’ Tee Off Comes With Applause and Aerial Message
After a long layoff from the sport of golf, Tiger Woods was itching to get back on the course and swing a club for the first time in a tournament since he last won the JBWere Masters in November of 2009. Although he felt it would be his chance to get away from all of the talk about alleged mistresses, girls-next-door, and the like, there were some questions surrounding the manner in which the fans at Augusta National would receive Tiger on the opening tee.
Let’s just say that sometimes you have to take the good with the bad.
Although those on the ground gave their full-out support for Woods, letting out a loud roar when he was introduced over the loud speaker (video below, 1:56 mark), there was a different message coming from the sky above. No, we are not talking about the wind, which was picking up as storms were said to be approaching. Instead, we are referring to the overhead plane, which dragged along a sign reading, “TIGER: DID YOU MEAN BOOTYISM?”
Clever, to say the least. And to answer that question, Tiger’s opening drive landed safely on the fairway as a sign of his approval.
Here is his first tee introduction.
