Age, injuries and all, the Tiger Woods Effect is still very real.

At Tuesday's meeting in opposition to LIV Golf, Rory McIlroy was asked: "Did Tiger take a leadership position or was he just one of the guys talking when you guys all met?"

To which the world's third-ranked golfer replied: "I think it's pretty apparent that whenever we all get in the room there's an alpha in there, and it's not me."

The golf world reacted to Rory's Tiger comments on social media.

"People say the same thing about me when I walk into a trivia night," one user replied.

"This is what being the true GOAT really looks like," another tweeted.

"Big Energy Drink…Energy."


Tiger has been a strong opponent of LIV, reportedly turning down a nearly $800 million offer to join the Saudi-backed league.
