I sometimes find myself watching videos of Tiger Woods playing golf. The commentators use words like birdie, chip, putt, tee, driver, bogey, and various different golf-related words. I barely know what these words mean, and I don’t care—I just want to watch Tiger!
When I watched him won the 2019 Masters, I got goosebumps. Club hit ball, numbers shown on the screen; I didn’t even understand what was going on, but my heart was captivated with whatever he was doing on the golf course.
What makes Tiger Woods so captivating?
P.S. Here’s the video I’ve watched most. The crowd, the cheers, the hugs; fist in the air, smiles everywhere. (I still get goosebumps.)
