Let's start with the man who reached a milestone victory this past week.

@TigerWoods Winning No. 73 at Jack's place is extra special. Honored to be associated with the greatest of all time.

Host Jack Nicklaus labeled Tiger's chip-in for birdie at the par-3 16th as the best he's ever seen under the circumstances. Paul Azinger took exception to that.

@PaulAzinger Wait just a minute here. Does Jack think that shot was better than my bunker shot on 18 to win in 1993? :-(

Saturday playing parter Scott Stallings was among those wishing Tiger congratulations.

@stallingsgolf Hats off to Mr. Nicklaus for a great event!!!! Can't wait to come back. Congrats to @TigerWoods

@ZachJohnsonPGA Congrats @TigerWoods...well done at Jack's house!

@jdriscollPGA If anybody thinks tiger isn't back at this point #yacrazy

David Hearn enjoyed his time at Muirfield Village GC.

@HearnDavid Locker room guys are so good at Muirfield when I asked for change for $100 they gave me 6 $20's. Don't worry. Gave it back

Aron Price offers some real talk about golf equipment.

@aronpricePGA How come every time a golf company produces a new driver they say it gives 15 more yds. If this was true we all would be hitting it 736yds

Finally, Lee Westwood offers a response to the one-shot penalty assessed to Ross Fisher at the Wales Open for slow play.

@WestwoodLee The only way to stop slow play is by handing out penalties. Ross wouldn't immediately spring to mind as a slow player though!
