Cebu champs praise the champ

Tiger’s win is motivation to play great golf in your 40s and that any injury can be overcome.

I always believed that the only thing that would hold Tiger back from breaking Nicklaus’ 18 majors was his health. He’s 42 and looks healthy but time’s running out on him. However, if someone’s going to do it, it’s Tiger and having him back in form is great for the game of golf.

The golf industry has been declining for several years and this epic comeback win of Tiger gives the much-needed boost.

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t try to hold back a tear or two after he holed the winning putt. This victory was truly inspiring given all the challenges Tiger faced over the last few years. Speechless!

Tiger Woods is always an inspiration. It makes every young golfer work hard to try and follow in his footsteps. As I watched him win, the crowds went wild with a roar and so did I.
