Tiger Woods 16th hole chip in Video

The old Tiger Woods that once dominated the game of golf for many years just sufaced out of no where yesterday Sunday at the Memorial Tournament finale. Woods who finished at 9-under 279, won the Memorial for the fifth time and left everyone buzzing especially Jack Nicklaus with his shot at 16th hole yestersday at the Memorial that they will talk about for years.

Woods chip-in came out perfect that landed right on the crown of the ridge which just rolled down to the hole and the rest is history.Tiger Woods loves being in the moment that we don't seen him for a quite sometime.

Ealier Woods reached the par-5 at 15th hole as ESPN wrote, " into the wind in two shots to set up a two-putt birdie ... But just like that, it looked as if his chances were over when his 8-iron bounded through the green and into a tough lie behind the green."

Tiger said of the shot, "I had to take a cut at it because the lie wasn't as great," he said. "I went for it. I pulled it off. And for it to land as soft as it did was kind of a surprise, because it was baked out and it was also running away from me. It just fell in. I didn't think it was going to get there at one point."

Tiger Woods stunning 50-foot 16th hole chip in shot for birdie forces him to display his vintage fierce fist pump and it immediately trended in Twitter and other social media worldwide. More of that vintage Tiger Woods shot wil hopefully surface again in nextweek U.S. Open in San Francisco.
