I remember seeing a special about him on Golf channel last year. He seemed like a real gentleman. Still answered every piece of fan mail he gets. Said he spent over a 100K dollars a year on postage responding to folks. I don't recall if he actually did it himself, but if you sent him a letter, you'd get a response.

And how he changed sports marketing - essentially the father of sports endorsements and the first to be represented by an agent.

I also learned how to grip my golf club from his videos when I first started to play.

Tiger is playing in his own Dec. event. 18 players. That's one way to avoid missing the cut or finishing out of the top 18.

I hope Tiger plays well and is relevant again. I personally find him unlikable however golf is more interesting when he's good. Sure he won't be 20 yrs old good again but that's okay. Put some fear into the young guys would be fun to watch as they all seem kinda fragile.

About time he went back to the Cameron. It was a mistake to switch in the first place.

He'll never be the same again.


If he captured one and only one more major...it would likely be at Augusta, which he owned for a large stretch of his career.


Unlikely, but if it were to happen, if would most likely be there..

I agree he'll never be the same but I do disagree about what he can still do. If his body stays intact, and head games go away, I could still see him passing Jack - or tying him. Not super likely but definitely out there as a possibility.

He not long ago came off of a case of the yips...the YIPS.


That's taking his game to depths no one ever thought. Jack never had a case of the chipping yips (IIR)...


Tiger's done...if he has anything left in the tank it would possibly be one last major...but I don't even think that is very feasible or likely at this point with the likes of DJ, Jordan, Rory, Day, among numrous others that are at the top now.

Woods was paid over a million dollars to appear in Dubai.
He missed a 4 foot par putt and the ball never came close to the left lip of the hole.

Then he withdraws after one round. His spokesman said he had back spasms during "dinner."

"Spasms are a funny thing; I'm certainly no doctor, but they come and go," Steinberg said.
------------------------
Yes and they will come and come when he decides to retire before the age of 45 if not sooner.

Sick and tired of seeing Tiger everywhere in the news, Facebook, etc......click bait. But the sport has passed him by. Focus on the top players and let him fade away.
