Tiger recently offered his thoughts on his return to the sport.
Tiger Woods the 14-time Majors Champion, was once the most feared man in the sport of golf. With a host of injuries since and personal troubles, that fear has vanished across the golfing world. It’s not like anyone knocked him out in the 12 round and took his belt. He is just not showing up to fight.
During a media conference last month for the 2017 Presidents Cup at the Liberty National Golf Club, Tiger’s comments didn’t get any special attention until the last question was asked,
“Could you see a scenario where you could not come back to competitive golf”?
“Yeah, definitely,” Woods said. “I don’t know what my future holds for me. As I’ve told you guys, I’m hitting 60-yard shots.”
Yeah definitely? Is he finally admitting that his career is over? He is 5 majors away from beating Jack Nicklaus’ all-time record of 18 majors. He has nothing left to prove in the sport of golf, unless his competitive fire wants to own the record. At age 41 he may also be competing with father time. We probably won’t be seeing him play at the level where he dominated the sport for so many years.Woods also added this about a potential comeback,
“I’ve been out of the game for a while,” Woods said. “First thing’s first: Get my health organized. Make sure the pain goes away. Then, basically, just as I said, just keep waiting for what my surgeon says. I’ve given you guys the updates on what I can do as I progress, and that’s all I’m doing. I’m still training. I’m getting stronger. But I certainly don’t have my golf muscles trained because obviously I’m not doing anything golf related.”
Well golf fans you’ll just have to wait and see……
