Insane TV rating numbers show how much Tiger Woods means to golf

Golf jargon

80 in Tiger Woods' PGA Tour career wasn't a major championship, but it might be just as memorable.

Still, it's nice to be reminded of this fact every now and again. We know we've got to play our best to come up against this team and that's what's in front of us.

"What's important to him right now, what's special for him, is to be a part of that team, to be a part of that group, and as Thomas talked about, it's a 12-on-12 type of atmosphere".

The tournament's final round, televised on NBC, was watched by a lot of people.

Despite being up against the National Football League, the season-ending event broadcast on NBC that saw Woods win his first PGA Tour event in more than five years drew a 5.21 overnight rating when Woods was on the course. But it's an arena he's grown to embrace over the years - so much so that the team events during the last few years while he's battled his back injuries provided him a bit of a lifeline and drew him closer to the younger players while being a vice captain.
