What in the hell just happened there? Robot golf ball aside, I’ve legitimately never seen Tiger Woods as happy as he was in that video. He hugged the kid! The kid was cool with the high five and then the kid kinda leaned in for a hug and in my head I was like, “Nope. Sorry kid. You got the Tiger Woods high five and that’s all you’re gonna get” and then Eldrick went full-force into the hug. I was stunned. Stunned actually doesn’t correctly explain how I felt watching that. This new Tiger is awesome. We used to look at him like an alien because he never expressed any real human emotion (minus punching the world in the face with fist pumps after sinking big time putts) but now? Now he’s almost always smiling and joking around and, apparently, he even knows how to hug people who aren’t his dad. We know that now because we have video evidence of it.
If you had asked me a few years ago what a Tiger hug looked like I would’ve said this
But it turns out he can actually hug! He made that kid’s life with that show of affection. Tiger love da kids.
PS- Yes, if Bryson DeChambeau had put that video out I would be making fun of him for messing around with a robot golf ball but I love Tiger and I hate Bryson. That’s just the way it is. It’s called bias.
