If a Billion Dollar Golfer Doesn't Mind Going Bald...

...neither should we!

Don't worry, Tiger. We know how it feels.

In his one-on-one interview with Fox Sports, a portion of which was published online on Wednesday , Tiger Woods gave the world an extraordinary admission about something that has been weighing on people's minds for quite a while: his hair loss.

It's not something that Tiger hasn't noticed, but he seems in good spirits about it.

"I'm comfortable with it, but my hairline isn't," Tiger said, after being asked by host Colleen Dominiguez if he was comfortable aging. "I have a nice skylight [at home] and I'm at the point where if I don't where a hat, I can feel the heat."

Then Dominiguez asked the big question: if Tiger would ever consider shaving off the rest of his hair.

"I think I will, but I'm fighting the cause, and I'm fighting it hard," Woods said. "It's a no-win fight, but I'm hanging in there."

To get a better idea of what he's talking about, here's Tiger's hairline at the 1997 Masters, compared to his hairline at the 2014 British Open.

I have embraced going bald by growing a badass beard.  It kinda says, "I might be bald but don't f*** with me!". ;-)

I gave up the fight back when I was 19 and left a military style, crew-cut-buzzed patch on top. By 21 I pulled out the Mach 3 and went clean. Same style now, but it's the Fusion ProGlide Flex Ball lol.

My hairline has been exceedingly tall for as long as I can remember (I joke that I need a big forehead to fit my big brain - self-deprecatory sarcasm that's often missed). But it's not receding. Not yet anyway. Or noticeably.

My grandma used to tell me that by wearing hats all the time the hair would "rub off" and I'd go bald faster. She was, thus far, wrong on that count.

I've heard rumors that he's tried plugs, no idea if true but did notice that the hair on the back of his head, below his hat, seemed a little fuller than I recalled it. Could be I was just happy to see him at all after such a long break.

So it seems that Tiger and I have at least 1 thing in common :whistle:

I have started buzzing my head with a #1, the same as the beard.  Makes things easy.

I have embraced going bald by growing a badass beard.  It kinda says, "I might be bald but don't f*** with me!".

And I have the problem that I can't even do that.  I've never been able to grow a decent beard (not that I've ever really wanted to).

My grandma used to tell me that by wearing hats all the time the hair would "rub off" and I'd go bald faster. She was, thus far, wrong on that count.

Funny, I used to get the same thing.  I don't remember where it specifically came from, but I just remember as a kid thinking that wearing hats would make me go bald.

I have started buzzing my head with a #1, the same as the beard.  Makes things easy.

Nah ... guardless is the way to go.  This way I can do it all myself and don't need the wife to tidy up the back of my neck for me.  Although I don't have the best set of clippers and will miss a spot occasionally.  Oops. ;)

I suppose it happens to the best of us...

My hairline has been slowly receding in the front for awhile.

I feel your pain, Tigs! Mine never really grew back after chemo, just some wispy little sprigs in the typical monk pattern... I shave it every couple of days with an Andis T-Outliner, pretty good razor.

I wish I could do this.

I've always known the day will come when I too will feel the eat, so I just shave it off for now.

Off topic: I hope Fox Sports is really trying to give GC a tough run for their money. They should pick up Nobilo too

Now if only this could do something about his desire to appear as Mirror Tiger. That having been said, I appreciate his speaking out about this. It will probably make it easier for me when I have to deal with my own eventual baldness issues.

New poll idea

Will Tiger win his 15th major before or after he shaves his head? :-P

Poorly worded. If you think he wins 15, you vote "yes" because you said "or" and TRUE|FALSE and FALSE|TRUE both evaluate to true. If you think he won't win 15, you vote no. :)

In other words, it's the same poll as asking if he will win a 15th major. :D

    • 1 Iron Golf Clubs
      So...finally broke 90 the other day....would have been better but for cored and sanded greens. Never struck the ball so well. Have been trialing the "Bobby Clampett" Impact Zone training, and focusing on a point forward of the ball...working a treat so far and my irons are way more solid. Time will tell whether it is a flash in the pan or a good move, but the range session are very encouraging. Played since xmas at all?
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Notice this comment ;)  Yea but he's been doing that since he's been in office. At least he hasn't wavered away from his agenda for how ever long he's been in office. He's not going to pass it. He's going to try.  Trump doesn't have an agenda except to his own ego. He doesn't care about America. He doesn't care about the American people. He's uses to screwing as many people over as possible. Heck, why not add Washington to the list.  For me I think Trump just sat back and thought, "you know what I can win the presidency." Then he's going about doing it. It's all about vanity nothing else.   
    • How Do You Decide Where to Play Golf
      This is a more difficult question for me to answer than it once was, so I selected "Other".   If I play locally, then I only have a couple of choices.  But this year I rejoined the Men's Club at my old home course, so that has now become my current home course even though it's a 2½ hour drive (about 150 miles).  I also play several other courses just as I feel like it, no one course by price because I can get varying deals at 30 or 40 Colorado courses with my Avid Golfer Passport.   A lot depends on how far I feel like driving, it may depend on when my brother drives down from Idaho to play for a few days, and it just depends on what I feel like.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Isn't Bernie doing the same thing?  He's leading a witch hunt against big business and the wealthy.  Do you really believe he's going to pass a 90% income tax on the wealthy, outlaw guns, provide better free healthcare, increase the minimum wage to $15+ country wide and provide free college to everyone? They are both snake oil sales people appealing to the lowest common denominators of their parties.  Bernie may be more sincere about his beliefs, but that could just mean he's crazier too.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      But that stat goes directly to Tiger's lack of longevity (to this point in time).  If he hadn't had the issues that he's had, he wouldn't have missed all of those recent starts.  I don't see how you can diss Jack for being competitive over a longer period, and then still making many starts (which attracted more money to the events just by his presence) after his competitive career was past.  I don't know what the numbers work out to age for age to the point when Tiger was no longer starting in Majors, but that has to be a more telling number.
