I don't think this is the end of Tiger, I think he's facing the reality of his back issues, and will need to change a lot. In my opinion, Tiger likes to "Go After It" on every swing. You cannot have that type of swing with back problems, he will need slow down his swing tempo aka Davis Love III type of swing. This is very hard for him because of his upper body strength. But Tiger will be back, and I am actually looking forward to seeing if he takes my advise LOL :whistle:

I would really be interested in seeing his practices. How much is his performance different between Mon-Wed and Thurs-Sun. Really hope he can change his swing, get healthy, and stay healthy.

OK, I'll be the controversial one. Yeah, Tiger's done. The competition has passed him by and his age and health issues are not helping. There was a time when people feared his talent and mental ability to focus. Maybe he can get some of that back and be competitive again - but he'll never be the dominant player that everyone cringed when they saw him on the leader board.

He's done a lot for golf in terms of purses and popularity - as did Jack and Arnie in their day.
Is Tiger's impact more significant? I'd say his talent and popularity, also had to do with the evolution of golf and the media attention it gets today. Jack & Arnie didn't get the benefit of a television network dedicated to the sport. For those of us old enough to remember, golf was a side-sport, and the Shell Wonderful World of Golf was about as fun as it got back then!

Will he Tiger ever win again? Maybe...just like Phil, maybe...even probably when all the stars align.
But will he be a dominant force on the PGA Tour again? Nope....

I believe he will pass Sam Snead record but be 3 shy of Jack..If he truly gets healthy..he will win another major or 2..hate to see the GOAT like this!

He's tired of embarrassing himself on golf course as he now has a 2 way miss and he can't chip.
