It is very possible he is finished.


While not a Tiger fan, for many years I would have discussed this point from the opposite position. Tiger has a huge ego and drive to succeed, but I have begun to believe that when it comes to his back, he has finally come up against an opponent he cannot defeat.

I still believe there are numerous areas of golf specifically or sport in general, in which he can contribute and make a positive influence. Maybe it's time.

There was a brief article this morning, not much more than a headline really. It said Tiger's doctors have advised him not to exercise for more than 20 minutes at a time. That sounds pretty ominous to me.

My expectation is that Tiger will no longer be able to compete effectively to win tournaments, or even put four low rounds together.
In Tiger's prime his razor sharp pitching, chipping, and putting game produced the consistently low scores. However in the most recent years he appears to have tension playing , short game shots and putts with yippy type strokes.
Historically, guys with the short game yips drop off the Tour. He might be able to find a long putter or claw grip or something to help with putting. But, there doesn't seem to be anything a player can do to over come nervy chipping and pitching yips.

I don't remember where I saw it in the past couple days, but there was an article asking whether current players would enjoy the longevity in the game into their years on the senior tour like the generation before them.

The argument was basically saying the old fashioned golf swing wasn't all that great on the human skeletal structure and muscles, but the modern swing is even worse.

Obviously the only answer is, time will tell, but it makes me wonder if such a wildly analytical kid as Bryson DeChambeau doesn't consider his physical health in the way he swings a golf club. Based on what I've read about him, I don't see it out of the realm of possibility that he might lead the way into a somewhat redesigned idea of a modern swing.

In the meantime, I'm glad to hear golf is bad for my back. Now I don't have to blame my back pains on my gut and lack of a proper diet or exercise.

Some radio reports today suggesting he may play next week at August.  That could be interesting :)

Interesting or disappointing?

Consider this... Augusta National sells a limited number of tickets to the Masters. That means if Tiger shows up and tries to play, he doesn't increase the crowd attending the tournament.

Instead, his appearance eliminates the opportunity for someone else to play in the Masters.

If his game was in any kind of condition to compete, I think we'd have heard about it a long before now. I hope he doesn't play. I'd rather not see him take away an opportunity for another player, but I'd also like to see Tiger return when his game allows him to be competitive. Only then...

I don't think he would be taking another players place Dennis.

As far as I am aware, there is a set criteria for masters qualification and everyone gets an invite.  So the field would just be one less if Tiger pulls out.  I could be wrong though...

I'm not sure. Obviously he's invited for life as a past champion, but I think they limit the field in the areas of world rankings. I'm not sure either, but the one thing I do know is, I don't want to see him laying badly and possible hurting himself again. If there's a chance he really can rehab and return to the tour, I'd hate to see him chance that and let's face it, Augusta National is one of the hilliest courses they play all year. Walking up and down hills is not good for his back when he has unlevel lies to hit from.
