I think Tiger has fallen off, of course from his earlier days of domination, but one thing that is not being mentioned is I think the field has caught up. Not just because of TWs regressions, but I think the 20-somethings now are significantly better than the 20 somethings 10, 12 years ago.

The 20 somethings have nothing to do with his poor play. The guy is clearly out to lunch. Maybe he should have a sit down with Andre Agassi so he can explain how he got back to No. 1 after his painful divorce from Brooke Shields.

He could retire from golf and start a career in acting. Isn't that what most retired athletes do these days?

Of course, but the topic is will he start winning tourneys again, and I think it is prudent to acknowledge the level of competition in such a discussion - as well as what is going on in his own head and bag.

His carefully constructed (and controlled) life has completely fallen apart. Mentally, he's a mess. The Tiger Fear Factor which probably won him as many tournaments as his talents, is gone.

Sooner or later the media will have to admit to themselves that the Tiger of old is dead and buried, and move on.

I wouldn't be shocked out of my socks if he never won another tournament.

Tiger's decline seems to be that he has fallen off a cliff. Not a gradual decline but completely fell off a cliff! I don't think you come back from that... if it were gradual he could possibly come back to win here and there. But since he fell off the cliff I think he is completely done... No more majors. I think he will retire in < 2 years. I know that sounds crazy but i dont think he can handle being an average golfer for an extended period of time.

In addition to the pun made about him needing to fornicate to win... there may be some truth in that. He's lost his "Mojo" like Austin Powers. And once u loose that u loose ALL of ur confidence in everything. He obviously needs to feel like a Ladies man to have his confidence on the links. He's definitely a Narcissist and needs that female reassurrance obviously. So Until he's doing that again, which will probably be never because he has to try and be perfect he's not going to be the dominant guy he was.

I think Tiger has lost his "mojo". I think that Tiger never had a chance to be a kid, his Father kept him focused on golf, he want wild after Papa was gone.

I see Tiger showing up at golf events, but not as a competitor. Maybe he can find it again when he is eligible as a senior.

I can't count Tiger out "just" yet. Deep down, I don't think anyone can. The real question is: Can Tiger can remain injury-free? If there are no injuries to contend with, he can build confidence and momentum. Of course, the total dominance Tiger once had is gone, but he can still win if he keeps healthy.
