With his leg situation, he may not be playing too much more golf.   He stated that he wants to play the majors and a few more.    I would think he would ultimately like to play with Charlie and that may drive his decision to continue as a player.   He stated he can hit the shots but just has a problem walking.    The Champions Tour gives him that luxury.   He could still return to the PGAT to play with Charlie.

I believe he would be helpful to the PGAT as its commissioner.  On the other hand, the PGAT seems to be doing well enough as is with just some of the current players speaking their opinions.   I'm sure his voice carries a significant amount of weight.

I changed my mind while typing so I voted continue playing, just to eventually play with Charlie.

I wanted to vote for both. More Tiger = Better.

But I think I'd like him to be commissioner. 

I never watch the Champions tour. Not that I have anything against it. I think Tiger as Comish would keep him in the forefront. 

 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

That’s not the question. 🤣

Oh, crap. That's what I get for "really" reading.

I'm going to keep the same vote. Because of his leg and other injuries.

Neither?

I'd guess Champions Tour before commissioner.

Commissioner.  He’s got kids. His health is top priority to him. He’d rather focus on Charlie’s golf than his own.

I went with Champions Tour because he can take a cart. He can shoot 7-under in his sleep with a cart, but as soon as he introduces walking, it becomes a grind again. And I would definitely start watching Champions Tour events if Tiger was in the field!

I do think it's possible he becomes commissioner, but isn't it more likely he devotes time to his family, business and charity pursuits post-playing career? I'm not sure it's worth it to him to give up so much of his time to oversee the PGA Tour, but I could be wrong.

Tiger is too much of a competitor to go the commissioner route. I see him playing champions tour occasionally and spending time with his family and business interests.

I voted Champion's Tour. Let alone the fact that he may not even be qualified for the job of commissioner, it's way too much of a time commitment, and he doesn't need the money or fame. Why would he possibly want that job?

I think I could see Tiger as commissioner considering he seems to be more of an active leader/wise elder these days with promoting the new elevated PGAT events, and the TMRW golf thing with Rory.

I’d say commissioner. He knows his limits. With TGR already going, I’d say he could a lot of good as commissioner. I’m sure he wants to play, but it’s showing all the time how little mobility he really has.

So I think…

  • There's a chance he plays like a U.S. Senior Open, the Senior PGA, etc. That counts as the Champions Tour.
  • There's no chance he becomes the commissioner. He's an athlete, and though he went to Stanford, he's not a lawyer or a policy guy or whatever. So I think there's very little chance of that. If he was, it'd be as a figurehead of sorts.

If he was to be more involved with the PGA Tour, I'd rather guess a promotional figure or collaborator behind the scenes of things. Like he's done recently with the new concepts on the tour.

I voted commissioner before reading any posts. It seemed that he was angling for a leadership role with his role in the LIV debacle. 

Not sure if he said it verbatim or someone paraphrased him but it was something to the effect of 'yall ruining my legacy'. So he cares about that kinda stuff. He may not be a policy guy but I think he has quite a bit of organizational experience with his own company. 

I say he has CEO designs and chops for it.

Another "neither" vote!  Why would he want the hassle of commissioner and his legs cannot holdout for long for the Champions tour.
