20 things you may have forgotten from Tiger Woods’ iconic 1997 Masters win

I was in elementary school when Tiger Woods won the Masters in 1997. It was the moment I became hooked on golf. Tiger was a bad ass, which was a weird thing to say about a golfer when you’re a young kid. He was just as cool as other sports heroes like Tory Aikman and Emmitt Smith. He had a style that I didn’t think was allowed in golf. As a result of those four days in Augusta in 1997, I’ve played the game ever since. Each day I become more and more addicted to it and that’s all due to that first Masters win for Tiger. And if you ask many of the guys on Tour today, they will tell a similar story.

Ohio State’s offense was good at getting the ball to hybrid back Samuel, who had 194 total touches for 1,636 yards and 15 TDs. It was less effective at involving receivers, and four of Noah Brown’s seven TDs came in a single game against Oklahoma.

Indiana put three different receivers over the 90-target mark while still feeding lead back Devine Redding. The smaller program didn’t have a better offense than Ohio State’s group of blue-chips, but it did get a lot of actors involved.

Wilson’s 2008 Sooners were an example of how this can play out with a more talented cast. Their two main backs, Chris Brown and DeMarco Murray, each went for over 1,000 rushing yards while four different receivers caught at least 40 balls and had more than 680 receiving yards.

Wilson balances the run and the pass from the same formation.
