When Tiger went to sign up for the golf tournament, he noticed that all his usual competitors were signed up. There were a couple new names, but Tiger had no worries. Tiger still had two days before the two day tournament, so he took his time while practicing because he knew this tournament would be a piece of cake.

Tiger had achieved the impossible. As he watched his nemesis cry a monsoon of tears, God crowned Tiger as the world 's dankest golfer. Happy was able to exploit tiger 's weakness a little bit, but in the end it was no match for Tiger Woods.
