Tiger Effect: You won't believe the weekend TV ratings at Valspar!

NBC Sports has revealed its final round coverage of the Valspar Championship on Sunday earned a 5.11 overnight, all thanks to Tiger Woods being in the mix on the weekend.

The final-round TV rating from Copperhead was the the highest non-major audience since the 2013 Players Championship (won by, you guessed it, Woods), and the highest non-Masters rating since the 2015 US PGA Championship.

Even Saturday attracted a 3.26 overnight figure that was 181% up against the third round of the 2017 Valspar Championship, which Woods did not compete in.
