Tiger Woods had an undeniably memorable weekend, but the look that he wore during his fifth win in Augusta is dividing fans.
2005 vs 2019. Same Same. And yes, for those asking, we will be carrying the Tiger Mock Neck. pic.twitter.com/FRJ6jxDzLc— Golf Town (@GolfTown) April 14, 2019
“I thought it was a pretty neat look back in the day,” Woods said about repeating the fashion choice. “I was probably in a little better shape back in those days, but I had won events wearing the mock, and I’ve always enjoyed wearing them.”
The look was so popular that eager fans looking to replicate it almost crashed Golf Town’s website:

But not everyone is loving the icon’s comeback look.
There’s one question golf consumers need to ask themselves before buying a new mockneck: “Did I just win the Masters for the 5th time?” If the answer is NO, step away from the purchase.— Jamie🦅Slonis (@JamieSlonis) April 15, 2019
Others appreciated his homage to his previous glory at Augusta:

What do you think of the mock neck look? Is it a trendy fashion statement, or a look better left in 2005?
