Tiger Woods may not have much going for his golf game at the moment, but there’s one thing he’ll always have: his loyal fans.

Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee learned just how loyal they are this week when he jokingly challenged Tiger to a high-stakes match at San Jose Country Club in Jacksonville.

Scobee proceeded to retweet many accounts that either bashed or supported his humor before posting a Ron Burgandy meme the next evening.
