Sportsman of the Week Ending 4/14/2019

There is no question what the biggest story in sports this week was.  And it wasn't the NBA or NHL playoffs, or MLB.  We're talking Tiger.  Tiger Woods.  Maybe you remember him.  In the Masters, the biggest PGA tournament of the year, he won his fifth Green Jacket.  And 15th Major.  He did it by emerging from a star-studded field, including 2018 major champion Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari along with Dustin Johnson, Tony Finau, and Webb Simpson.  But it was Tiger who down the back stretch, was nails.  He went from tied to 2 strokes ahead as other contenders made mistake after mistake.  On the 18th hole, he needed a 5 bogey to win.  He took all five.  Greatness was returned, as Tiger won his first major in 11 years and fifth masters to go with 1997, 2001, 2002, and 2005.  Amazing to think the fans born the first year he won The Masters are at most 21 years old.  And here we are with Tiger Woods back on top.  Enjoy it fans.  It's what sports is about.  And Tiger Woods is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
