Tiger Woods’ Masters victory today drew immediate reaction from all over the sports world. Plenty of star athletes chimed in with well wishes.
One of them was Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry. Unfortunately, Curry’s congratulatory tweet set himself up perfectly to be mocked online.
“Greatest comeback story in sports!” Curry wrote. “Congrats @TigerWoods Let me hold one of those 5 jackets one time!”

Of course, Curry calling Woods’ comeback story the greatest in sports was an alley-oop to some of his followers. They dunked it home by reminding him about that time his team blew a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals.
Overall, Woods’ comeback from his own personal demons and debilitating injuries is more remarkable than the Cleveland Cavaliers’ rally against the Warriors three years ago. There’s not much debate there.
However, this is Twitter. Curry is going to be on the receiving end of jokes, facts be damned.
Gotta think that one out a little bit better next time, Steph.
