TV battle: Tiger Woods vs. Game of Thrones

EDISON -

One of the greatest comebacks in sports or the "Game of Thrones" premiere? The answer to the question depends on who you ask.

After more than a decade, Tiger Woods won the Masters for the fifth time and some are calling it the greatest comeback in sports. Then there's "Game of Thrones," which fans waited nearly two years for.

So which was a bigger deal?

Well at Hailey's Harp and Pub Metuchen, the owner and most of the customers are big golf fans. They spent the whole day at the bar watching Tiger Woods.

However, the bar wanted to show "Game of Thrones" as well but was denied access by HBO. So some customers left to go home and watch the world of Westeros. One customer said "Game of Thrones" wins over golf.

News 12 asked viewers on social media and it appears "Thrones" was no match for a good comeback.
