Tiger had a fusion this time around... that's a year recovery and he will never be the same... unfortunately it's over

No question TW can no longer play at the level needed to compete on the PGA, might see him attempt to tee it up at a few majors or even his own event. In terms of competing with the current crop of players, stick a fork in him.

Yes, he is finished on the regular tour. Regrettably his back is shot. I always enjoyed watching him play before his health issues. I'm sure it's not the way he wanted his career to end.

May not have been a huge fan, but because of him I started playing 20 years ago. As much as I'd like to pull for him, I think he's done

Agree with Rocco. If Tiger wants to compete again, it has to be with a swing that doesn't stress his back. Is he willing to make the change? Even if it means no longer being a power player?

Agree 100%. If he will make the transition to being a grinder rather than trying to keep up with the long hitters then he will be able to continue to play and will probably win a few more because of the experience factor.

It's a real shame that we couldn't have had a few more years of Tiger competing, to see him stare down some of the young guns would be great - let's be honest how many majors might Els, Mickleson, Singh, Garcia etc have if Tiger hadn't psyched them out?

4 back ops though, with this one a fusion? The scar tissue in and around those crucial lumbar discs will be a huge hindrance, could he win with a 3/4 swing and get his short game and putting back? No. Every week there are 30 players who could win, all class acts.

In some ways though it's good not to have the will he play nonsense before the rest of the majors this season.

It’s time for him to realize that he has no more wins in him at this level.  So many guys on tour hit it past him, and his short game is nowhere near his best.  He needs to focus on his family and health, and maybe be able to play the senior tour where he could again be the dog and pony show.
