    Geez Tom why don’t you write his obituary already?

    Tiger answered the question truthfully. It’s harder to stay motivated day in and day out compared to his past. It’s really an obvious answer for a 43 year old.

    But keep in mind when a player starts as the most motivated athlete of all time, arguably, even significant dips in motivation can still be a whole lot of motivation.

    What I don’t like is how the media will take a quote like this and run with it; usually to a players retirement or claiming they will never win a big one again.

    It’s just not true. Tiger has been proving these blasphemes wrong since 2009. It’s almost a brand to itself: Eldrick, Proving People Wrong Since 2009. (R).

    Tiger played a terrible Masters for him, and has had a down year. A lot of guys are using Covid as an excuse but it really is for tiger.

    Aside from his super army not being there, Tiger truly avoided tournament golf a long time due to Covid, not his body, and then used his few reps pooorly by Focusing on draws over getting in contention.

    He simply hasn’t been ready to put together 72 holes of championship golf. But he sure put together 6 beautiful holes after the 10.

    Watch those last six holes on the Masters site; And then tell us that man won’t win again.

    Tiger can still handle Smith and Im, and most everybody else. But yea, for various reasons it’s not as easy as it used to be, which affects the motivation.

    But it’s a quote hardly worth jumping to conclusions and Alerting the presses about. Chill. I promise you Tom, Tiger will win another major relatively soon. Maybe even as soon as April.

      Ah Baxter, you like so many have a tough time letting go of our aging superstars; I think another major is “highly” unlikely….he just can’t practice and prepare the way the world’s best are preparing; Tiger won all those tournaments with long, long, long hours of practice and those days are gone……

        That’s what they said before he regained number 1 in 13. And again before he won again. And then before he won a major again.
        Cmon Tom you really believe tiger is done competing and winning big tournaments and majors ?

          Baxter: I do because he absolutely cannot spend the countless hours he needs to have his BEST and at age 45 he would need some sort of “A” game — he plays in so few events with so much time in between that he can’t build momentum and the older you get, the more the surgeries weigh……not saying he cannot, just believe he may not — the talent out there is getting stronger and stronger, I’d say if the talent around him was the way it was in 2000-2005, maybe but there are too many guys who are really good who can put in the countless practice hours.

            Tiger would have played a lot more if not for Covid. He is one of the richest men In The sporting world; he’s in his mid 40s.
            He will play more next year.
            Tom, he is far from done. Mark my words. Again.

          2. Tom Edrington

            I’m marking your words but he will not play often, he’ll start at Farmers in late January and I believe he’s not long enough to win at Torrey Pines anymore. He only plays in big events which means the top players are there. Tiger needs for the best to not bring their best to give him a shot; As for majors, I don’t see another one in the trophy case.
