It seems like every Monday this summer we have been talking about how well Tiger Woods has played, and yesterday was no exception as Woods shot his best ever Sunday score in a major—to take second place at the PGA Championship.
And while Brooks Koepka beat him by two strokes, it sure felt like Tiger was the big winner.
And that is why we will now talk about real winner in all of this—the PGA and their TV Ratings.
Once again, the television ratings for Sunday’s championship-deciding final round were up—this time by an astounding 69-percent over last year’s final round.
And that is because everyone is rooting for Tiger.
And it’s no secret, just ask the winner himself Koepka who, despite the fact that he has now won three of the last seven Majors, knows it as well.
“Other than me and my team, I think everybody was rooting for Tiger,” said the 28-year-old champion Koepka, but then wisely adding, “As they should. He’s the greatest player to ever to play the game. [Woods] is the whole reason people of my generation are even playing golf. To duel it out with him, I don’t think I ever dreamed of that situation today.”
Spoken like a true champion… who just defeated his childhood idol.
