Plus, Big Cat was about my age (just a year older) which made him more relevant to me to watch than some of the older guys.
What I've always liked about Tiger is the work ethic. Who knows how far past Nicklaus he would have gotten if he hadn't done all his SEAL training (apparently the source of most of his back problems). I also hope Ricky Fowler breaks through and wins a major. He also seems very classy.
