Over the weekend, Tiger Woods entered his fourth round of the Open Championship four shots back of the leaders. Midway through his final round at Carnoustie, Tiger found himself on top of the leaderboard.

It was the first time since 2009 that Woods found himself in the lead of a major on a Sunday. The charge he put down on Saturday, a 5-under 66, caught the audiences attention.

When Tiger plays, people watch. When Tiger plays well, network's set viewership records.

Although that didn't quite happen this weekend, Sunday became the most-watched final round of the Open Championship since 2000.

Viewers clearly want to see if Tiger can still compete for, and possibly win, another major. Woods hasn't won a major since earning his 14th major title in the 2008 U.S. Open.

Tiger showed over the weekend that he can, in fact, still play the game at a high level. Will he be able to push Jack Nicklaus for most major tournament wins of all time?

We'll just have to wait and see.
