Golf fans were introduced to the Tiger Woods "Mac Daddy Santa" holiday tradition around this time last year, when he posted this incredible picture on social media.

The photo got all kinds of reaction from fans and players alike, including an incredible spoof from Andrew "Beef" Johnston.

Sadly, our timelines weren't blessed with a 2017 edition of Mac Daddy Santa (it's not too late, Tiger), but the PGA Tour did post a video of Woods going into a little more detail about the tradition and we'll take what we can get.

Not surprisingly, the character makes an annual stop at the Woods household to the delight of Tiger's children, Sam and Charlie.

"It's the best you know? Every year I've become this character, Mac Daddy Santa. Kids absolutely love it. They love when I do something crazy," he explains. "It provides something that our family does together each and every year and even as they get older I'm still going to do it ... it's something that they're going to remember for the rest of their lives."

He also said the tradition doesn't always go off without a hitch.

"Last year I burned my face off trying to dye my goatee," he said. "Which is never going to happen again."

Be careful out there, Mac Daddy. Christmas wouldn't be the same without you.
