is Tiger Done?


Recommended Posts

Impressive resume 14 majors and I believe 84 tour wins is Tiger done winning? 2nd greatest golfer ever Nicklaus being #1.

 

I would say yes done - when he came out on tour drove it 40/50 yards by everyone and had the best short game - now prob 30 guys longer or as long off the tee and Tiger has a spotty putter to boot.

 

Back injury 3 knee surgeries 14 chics and 4 swing coaches later here we are.

 

Lovem or hatem guy had a hell of run.

 

curious how others feel about the tig

Yes...back problems are nothing to sneeze at.  Evidently he cannot get his back to cooperate enough to practice and play -- and that is with the best trainers and medical minds around.  The strain his

I think he's done playing at the top level too. I hope that he's done trying...

 

I get the whole "moves the needle" thing, but watching him wince in pain and withdraw every week is not how people want to remember him. Hearing about Tiger's issues during 90% of the coverage of any given event is coming at the cost of the guys who are actually competing.

 

He has already developed a lot of business and charity efforts - maybe it's time to focus on those, and play golf for fun when he feels like it.

I hope he isn't done. I understand how it is annoying to hear about Tiger. But, it's because he's the guy that built the monster, so to speak.

 

All the guys in the past; Jack, Arnold, Gary P., Trevino, Snead, etc.... were great, no doubt. I'll even concede that Jack was the greatest of all time, but Tiger brought golf to the masses. Tiger is why golf is cool. Tiger is why there so many talented young players on tour that can win on any given day. Tiger built the monster!

 

I think he can be competitive again. I don't think he can regain what he once was. He has to come to terms with his age and physical limitations if he really wants to be competitive again. He's "only" 40. He just has to figure out how to play in the here and now with the way his body is.

 

Henrik Stenson  is 40, and Sergio is as well. They both compete fairly well!

 

I don't look for much out of Tiger this year. I think it will take longer to get it all sorted out.

Yea, I can attest to the fact that Father Time wins.... always. Last year at 56/57, I noticed that my distance with driver and irons definitely took a hit. That just means I need to concentrate on fairways and GIR's  instead of a wedge in on most holes!

I'm thinking he is about done as a well cooked pork roast simmering all night in a crock pot. He not only has some body parts that have worn out but his brain is not as strong as it once was.   Golf is a mental game and some of the stuff he has been forced to deal with has played havoc on his confidence.  He may surprise me and pull two or three wins out before turning fifty however I wouldn't bet the farm on it......

I still say he has atleast 3 or 4 more tour wins and a major left in him. Rocky start as it would be for anyone who's been through all the physical issues, but I can't believe he's done yet. Too much drive in him still.

If he weren't regularly undergoing invasive spine surgeries I'd have bet the farm TW's back pain was a psychosomatic manifestation of his fall from most famous/beloved/infallible sporting athlete in history to the even more famous/flawed fodder for bad late night talk show jokes. While TW is the only one that can truly speak to your question, I think the back injury has been undeniably more mentally detrimental. And I focus on that because it has given him an excuse on which to place cause for all his performance woes but even more importantly, it has steered the narrative away from "Can the guy who never missed inside 10 feet still make 'em when he knows that most folks no longer see him as a god?" I hope TW starts asking himself the right questions about the areas his game is suffering most. As long he cares what people think about his public indiscretions, he's doomed to dig deep and find all that's waiting is a very injured ego.

I'm thinking it is over from him. Just as it has been for all great players before him. It was a great thing to have witnessed. Time and life moves on.

I'm 40 and had the same surgery as Tiger 5 years ago. It took me a full year to get my game to its level before surgery. I occasionally experience the spasms as well and then it's 6 weeks of stretching and rehab. It happens randomly. Not associated with more or less physical activity.

 

That being said, I don't need to perform at an elite level. So yes, he's done.
