Mark Palin of the UK’s Daily Mail already had the coolest golf photo ever. In a one-in-a-million shot (in more ways than one), Tiger Woods duffed a chip right into him.

Amazingly, Tiger Woods really hit this shot – and Cigar Guy really saw it.

While the miraculous image of the ball heading straight at the camera first grabbed public’s interest, it was a mystery cigar-chomping fan who really seized it.

INTERNET LEGEND: Cigar Guy truly is the man. There’s no disputing this. We’re just waiting for the doctored pic of him, Devon James and Joslyn James in a threesome.
