Tiger Woods Losing Ground Against The Toughest Opponent Of All - Dog Leg News

About the author

Tom Edrington

Tom Edrington spent the first 10 years of his misguided youth as a sports writer for the Tampa Tribune. His career brought him face to face with many of sports greatest stars -- Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Muhammad Ali, Don Shula, countless Hall of Fame NFL stars, more PGA Tour players than he can count. In 1980 he was honored by the Golf Writers Association of America for writing the best news story that year, his coverage of Jack Nicklaus' U.S. Open victory at Baltusrol. Today, 36 years later, golf is still a great part of his life, thanks to competitive playing days and the wonderful people he has met on this fabulous journey.

    Tiger playing 3 of this years majors, looking as strong and fit as he has, is an amazing sign for the future.

    All this farewelling Tiger is yet another example of how terrible media is today. #Click bait central over facts.

    Tiger clearly did not show up to St Andrew’s to say goodbye. He showed up because of the significance, because he was healthy enough to compete and continue his much needed progression towards better years in the future, and frankly because he foolishly actually believed he could win this thing despite still clearly being in recovery mode with the leg and being extremely rusty competitively.

    His competitiveness will benefit from this years major efforts greatly as his leg health improves. Btw Tigers back is tight and far from perfect but it’s night and day compared to where it was before the fusion.

    Yes Tiger playing is not easy for him. But ironically unlike most of us past 40 things are on trend to getting healthier and easier for Tiger as his leg continues to heal and get stronger.

    As I’ve said before Tiger needed to play some majors this year to stay relative for the future. Which he did. But again if Tiger wants to reach 18-19-20, in the 2020s, he will have to play more than 4 majors and two or three hit and giggles. IMHO

      Hate to say it but don’t see Tiger winning another major championship…..too much hardware in the aging body and that’s from someone who has a lot of hardware in the old body!!
