Tiger Woods Chasing Masters 2011 Victory: Twitter ‘Pretty Neat’

April 9, 2022 | Debbie Turner

It seems that the long-awaited Tiger Woods comeback is beginning to materialize. The golfing superstar who only joined Twitter a few months ago, has got everybody wondering if the Masters 2011 could be the tournament when he gets back to the top.

At the Masters 2011 after the second round completed yesterday, it was still Rory McIlroy at the top of the leaderboard on -10, with Jason Day in second after a great round of 64, putting him on -8. However Tiger Woods has put himself firmly in contention on T3 with -7, alongside KJ Choi. Although we couldn’t say that Tiger Woods is one of the most productive tweeters at least joining the popular social networking site shows a more open Tiger, more willing to share himself a little with his fans. Already the golfing legend has over 730,000 followers.

The last tweet on his account, @TigerWoods, was on March 31 and reads “Been using my new app to prepare. I’m loving it – what do you guys think?” Another from the same day shows he hasn’t lost his drive to play golf saying, “Logging so many hours heading into Augusta this week. Nervous, excited, hoping the hard work pays off.” Now that’s exactly what people want to hear.

Over on USA Today, Gary Mihoces reports Woods as saying that when he joined Twitter he was a bit unsure about it but describes it now as “pretty neat.” Woods said of Twitter, “It was quite interesting starting out because you get all of these followers, and next thing you know they ask just a variety of different questions and they are all cool questions, … It’s fun to be able to have that ability to have the direct connection with the fans.”
