If you were Greg Norman, Fred Couples, Ernie Els and other top players playing in the 1997 Masters you had to have a premonition after the tournament was over.
Here was a 21 year old kid coming to this hallowed ground and breaking the tournament record and leaving little doubt he would be a force to reckon with for many years.
They had to know that winning majors in the future would be a daunting task with a Tiger prowling.
Fast forward to 2015.
Here comes a 21 year old kid tying the tournament record and leaving the field in the dust.
Tiger now knows the feeling that his fellow players had in 1997.
He also knows that a 25 year old Rory McIlroy, who beat him head to head on Sunday by 7 shots, makes his drive to win another major even more difficult. Youth will be served, again.
