American golfer Tiger Woods added excitement to the sport not long after he turned professional on 1996, after a successful amateur career. In less than a year from his entry he had already captured his first major title in the 1997 Masters.
Tiger Woods made a record-breaking performance in winning it by 12 strokes. That would soon be a foretelling of his greatness as a pro golfer. He is now widely regarded as one of the greatest golfers of all-time.
He has also been among the highest-paid athletes worldwide for a number of years until his career was stricken with scandals, and some of his sponsors cancelled their contracts and withdrew their support.
Tiger Woods is trying to make a comeback in the sport, struggling after undergoing back surgeries. He dropped out of golf ‘s top 500 for the first time in his career, but it does not mean he can no longer excite fans.
Well, at least in some other ways, Woods can still spike interest, and his name will always be a byword of the sport of golf.
Tiger Woods unveils Mac Daddy Santa Ho! Ho! Ho!
Explosions came before we even got to light up those firecrackers. That’s what happened to the Internet when golf legend Tiger Woods posted a bizarre tweet of himself naked, sporting as Santa.
According to a report by CBS Sports, it did not take too long for people in social media to come up with hilarious photoshopped version of Mac Daddy Santa.
A Twitter follower posted, “Told wife I was running out to finish Xmas shopping cause “nothing was going on or going to happen” & then the golf story of the year drops.”
Talk about a crossover popularity. Everyone, golf fans or not, seems to be feasting on Mac Daddy Santa, and we still have to receive word from Tiger Woods himself on how the Internet has reacted to his post, and to answer the main question as to WHY he posted it.
Tiger Woods remains on another level, literally, and there is no question golf needs him to draw in more interest.
