Hopefully he makes a few cuts then returns to form... Which would be the best thing for Golf.

I think he may do alright on the Champions Tour so there's a little hope for the future.

I think he has too much pride to play on the champions tour. Especially if he still can't win.

I want for it to so bad be option 3 but i think it will be like an option 2.5. Make cuts get a win here and there but probably nothing huge. Ill just be happy to see him back in action whenever that is.

Initially, I'm just glad that he is still alive and did not end up like Elvis or Michael Jackson.   What's with these doctors that provide the type of prescriptions that could form such a drug cocktail.   

 

As far as his future golf, he's had several back operations, sometimes the slightest back injury can last for a lifetime and limit activity.   What has he not accomplished other than more majors than Jack.   If I were he, with the wealth he has obtained, I would just enjoy the fruits of my past efforts and not risk more pain and injury.

Miss the days when Tiger ruled and Nike was trying to figure out the equipment business.  But Tiger's major days are over.  If he can ever fully recover and compete again, I think he will make the cut for most tournaments he enters.  However I don't see  him contending for wins.  With his exceptional attention to detail and personal drive, I believe he could/would make an incredible coach. 


Loved hitting baseballs.  Now figuring out how to chase "the little white ball".

I'll never forget the urban legend I heard about him. Back when Nike was first getting into the equipment game, they said Tiger's equipment and balls were actually inferior to the other tour players. AND HE STILL DOMINATED!

That was the old debate back then, how good could he have been if he used Titleist or TM instead?

IMHO, It was not his equipment that got him where he was, but rather his belief in his own invincibility.  That confidence, that nobody could touch him, nobody could beat him, and that he was head and shoulders above the field was his most powerful weapon.  Even look at or talk with tour players at the time- they were intimidated by his presence.  Coupled with his tremendous talent, work ethic and desire to win, made Tiger an amazing athlete to watch.

 

After his "fall" from the pedestal, he lost that confidence -he knew (even if he didn't acknowledge it) that he was no longer invincible.  That intangible is gone forever.  Given the additional trouble he has had with physical issues (knee, back, etc), now that the mental "advantage" he had is gone, I don't think he will ever be able to compete at the same level again.

 

Golf is a mental game- What was it that Bobby Jones said, "Competitive golf is played primarily on a 5 1/2 inch course - between the ears"  and without that advantage, without that belief in oneself, you are already one step behind.

 

When I am hitting the ball well, I am confident that I know exactly where the ball is going - and it usually does.  When I am unsure, the tentative nature of my mind can cause a tentative swing with disastrous results.  And nobody is carrying my bag on Sunday except me, so...  Why do you think there are so many sports psychologists around today?

 

I loved to watch Tiger play- I loved that confidence and that ability coupled to make a complete player- without both, however, it is not the same, and that is truly unfortunate.

There are a lot of players today that are just as good as Tiger was in his early days. They grew up watching and idolizing Tiger's play.  I agree that the intimidation factor was huge in his ability to close out tournaments.  That's gone now.  He doesn't intimidate anyone.  No one today is going to dominate like he did, because no one is intimidating.  Anybody can win at any time, as demonstrated by the number of first-time winners this year and 3 of 4 first time major winners.
