For what might be his last time for a very, very long time, Tiger Woods took a stroll up the 18th fairway at The Old Course at St. Andrews in an Open Championship. The Open Championship rotates courses and it’s unclear when the next time it’ll be at St. Andrews is and what Tiger Woods’ playing status will be when that time comes around.
His stroll up 18 came after two difficult days of golf. He started the 150th Open Championship with a double bogey and things never turned around from there. Here’s that final moment…
Tiger Woods crying while walking up the 18th fairway was a sight the golf world wasn’t ready for. He mostly kept his head down to shield the tears from the camera but the crowds were roaring for him and his perseverance making it back to St. Andrews after the horrific car crash. But seeing Tiger Woods crying nearly broke Golf Twitter…

Throughout my lifetime, Tiger Woods has been the most fun professional athlete to witness during his peak of greatness and it’s probably not even close. Michael Phelps in the Olympics was next level but it only lasted for 2 weeks every 4 years. Tiger’s peak in the 00’s was insane to witness.

Definitely not crying watching Tiger approach the 18th green at St. Andrews. Definitely not. My roof is just incidentally leaking, and dripping directly under both my eyes

Tiger will be back at next year’s Open Championship and the year after that and the year after that. One day his last Open will come but that day’s a long ways away. I believe that.
