Tiger Woods bids farewell to CBS’s Verne Lundquist at Masters’ Hole 16

Legends recognize legends.

Look: Tiger Woods acknowledges Verne Lundquist on Hole 16

As Woods was walking off the greens on Hole 16 at Augusta National, Woods stopped and shook hands with Lundquist. The CBS broadcaster watched Woods play the hole from behind the bunker in a lawn chair before he got set and ready for his call of the Masters.

As noted on the Masters.com broadcast, Woods rarely takes breaks away from the game itself when he is playing, so to break from action — however briefly — and acknowledge Lundquist was a pure class move from Woods.
