Tiger Woods' tribute to Kobe Bryant was testimony to everything from unexpected to surreal to absolutely amazing.
This is really great. Tiger Woods 44, had the most incredible thing to do with him on Thursday, February 13, at the Genesis Invitational in Los Angeles, California. Much of this tournament related to the unfortunate death of Kobe Bryant especially because it took place miles from the helicopter crash site where he, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people tragically lost their lives on January 26th. It was also the first time the golf legend had played professionally since Kobe's death. Oh, and one more thing happened: Tiger drained an Eagle Putt that was exactly 24 feet and 8 inches long – both numbers were on Bryant's Lakers ( SEE CLIP HERE ). WHOA! "It's ironic, isn't it?" he said after his first round. "I didn't know the putt was taking so long."
Social media became hysterical after witnessing the amazing move. “Golf gods work. Total respect for tigers and mamba, ”wrote one, while another with“ How appropriate. The goat did it for the goat ”, with Tiger and Kobe being the biggest in their respective sports. Others simply praised Tiger for his good job on Thursday. “Great opening eagle at this tournament! Go Tiger Woods! Round 69 today! "
Tributes to Kobe, Gianna, and the seven others continue to flow, although Tiger's version is the epitome of the word "unique."
