Tiger making a comeback

Post by brothers »

It appears that Mr. Woods is in a position to win today's final round of the 2018 TOUR Championship golf tournament. Good for him. He has overcome some monumental personal and health issues in the past few years.

Yes he has , but I think it’s time the focus was on other talented players.

Personally I haven't paid him any attention for what seems like 10 years. Maybe he's been getting more attention in your area than mine. This was his first win in 5 years. I have a hunch he'll be pretty doggone popular in the coming year unless he starts losing again.

My favorites are Spieth. Fowler, McIlroy and Mickelson.

Not a Tiger fan.

Not that I don't think he is a talented golfer - for he is. I would kill to have even the poor game he has struggled with over the last few years.

I quit tracking him after his caddy waded into the gallery and assaulted that photographer. The golfer was in the wrong, but his caddy's actions, and Tiger's responses after that turned me off for good to him.

IMHO, and of course YMMV.

Comeback??? :shock: Ryder Cup this weekend. I didn't watch it much, but he and his partner floundered and bombed, and Europe won.

A complete, unadulterated flame out. Europe more than won, they trounced America.

Today, for the first time in about 11 years, Tiger Woods won the Master's Championship in Augusta Georgia. This makes his 5th win, tied with Jack Nicholas for the most Green Jacket wins. Comeback? Yes!

Yes, he did get the last laugh and he is undeniably a great technical player, but he remains the obnoxious, uncouth SOB that he turned out to be after his father died.

Does a tiger change his stripes?

If someone who alienated so many people could actually undergo a basic and permanent change of attitude and behavior, I heartily applaud it. I suppose time will tell. I wish him nothing but the best.

Mr. Woods will be receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom because of his "incredible success and comeback in sports/golf and more importantly in life."

It's going downhill fast. Unfortunately he drove his vehicle off the highway into a deep ravine yesterday 23February2021 in Los Angeles and suffered several severe injuries. Not life threatening, but playing golf again isn't going to be on his short list for who knows how long. I wish him the very best, and everybody's really glad he didn't kill himself.

Tiger's career peaked in June, 2008 when the played in the U.S. Open against his doctor's advice. He won, but wrecked his knee in the process. His career has been downhill ever since. His latest injuries haven't stopped some Tiger "fans" from speculating about another comeback. Ha!!!!!

I wish everyone all the best in recovery -- whether it be Tiger or a vet amputee from and IED. Best wishes to all of them. Keep a stiff upper lip and march forward.
