Speaking with Charles Barkley and Ernie Johnson on the latest episode of The Steam Room podcast, Verne Lundquist revealed what Tiger Woods said to him as he came off the green at the Masters...

“I ventured down to 16 and he was playing 14 at the time and he was having a horrible day. Five over and wound up dead last in the tournament,” Lundquist said of Woods. “But even though he was five over, he walked off the green at 16 and as he approached, I just said, ‘Tiger, thank you.’ He reached over and shook my hand and we chatted. In all candor, I can’t remember what we said, except I thanked him for the kind words that he had, and he said, ‘We’re gonna be tied at the hip forever’ because of that shot and because of what I said.”

“The thing I most treasure about it,” Lundquist continued of his interaction with Woods. “He went over and teed off at 17, I was still standing under the tree. And as he walked down the 17th fairway, he just looked over and gave me a thumbs up. I will treasure that forever. People say, ‘Do you think he’ll come back?’ Hell yes he’ll come back. He’s not gonna let people remember that he was 60th in a field of 60.”

It was a great moment, even though that Georgia pine blocked it.

Wait, am I missing something? Where are the obligatory mis-spellings?

What the hell Larry, are you drunk?
