Impressive! Tiger Nails ‘unbelievable, gutsy shot’ on 16th…

There are two annoying phrases that are uttered whenever Tiger plays. Someone in the crowd will yell, “In the hole!” after every shot. The other, after a win, is “Tiger’s back.” On Sunday, at the Memorial golf tournament played on “Jack’s course” — Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio — Tiger notched an impressive win with an impressive shot on the 16th hole.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better one. That was the most unbelievable, gutsy shot that I’ve ever seen,” raved golf legend Jack Nicklaus, who founded the tournament, after Jim Nantz of CBS asked if anyone had hit a better shot at the Memorial. “It was really, really unbelievable, particularly because of the position he was in. He hits it short the tournament is over. He hits it long the tournament is over. He put it in the whole. Unbelievable.”

Tiger, who finished at 9-under 279, won the Memorial for the fifth time. At age 36, he is 10 years younger than Nicklaus when the Golden Bear won his 73rd tournament at the 1986 Masters. Sam Snead holds the PGA Tour record with 82 wins.

Here’s a video of the shot, care of the Huffington Post.
