Michael Phelps cheers on Tiger Woods at Masters
Tiger Woods turned back the clock with his performance on the back nine at the Masters on Sunday, and another athlete who understands the meaning of domination appeared to be taking it just as seriously as the 14-time major champion.
Woods hit one of his best shots of the day at the par-3 16th hole, leaving himself with a tap-in birdie to take a two-shot lead. He intensely stared down the shot while it was in the air, and Michael Phelps was shown standing behind him with an almost identical look on his face.

Few people understand what Tiger is going through more than Phelps, so it’s no surprise he appeared to be enjoying the ride.
Woods got some help during the final round when other players at the top of the leaderboard went into meltdown mode, but all in all he turned in one of his best performances in a very long time.
