Yes to both.

But seriously, him not playing in API is disconcerting.

Tiger may not play the Players?

Tiger Woods still has time to commit to next week's Players, but Notah Begay painted a picture of continued uncertainty.

Maybe his back is giving him major issues again.

Either that or he doesn’t feel like it?

There was some swing I saw in slow motion recently where his knee or something buckled. Dunno if ground slippery or something else.

I would imagine he's got one thing on his mind - a major at his best chance to win one - the AugNationalGolfClub.   It would be a shame if he was injured this time of the year, ask DustinJohnson.

Here in AugustaGa, we've had more days of rain than clear since Dec.  Almost 2 ft since first part of Dec.  We got 2.5" yesterday, rained for 4 days straight.  Pretty sure the 'creek' is up out there so it will be limited play before the Masters if it keeps up like so far.

If he's feeling at all worn down or tired this early in the season I guess he feels that he's more susceptible to injury.  How many legit shots at majors does he have?   can't be many.

Worn down from what? Torrey Pines and Riviera? He’s only played in two tournaments this year, right?

If he’s worn out already, he’s in trouble

Got to be more than just wore down from last year. Would be a shame if he couldn't defend at the Masters.

I don’t see him competing at the Masters with no pre-tourney reps. It’ll be interesting to see if he plays Valspar or the Match Play, assuming his back loosens up by then. But yeah, I feel this is going to be what it’s like the rest of his career. He’ll be good one minute and then out the next.

We all thought he was back to his old self after the Masters, ZoZo, President's Cup success last year. However, Tiger always tried to lower the expectations by saying he was simply grateful to be playing competitive golf again. I think of all of this as "bonus" time for Tiger. If we see him play well and win again, it'll be a real treat. If not, what a ride it has been.

I think this lay-off will favor Tiger. Hear me out.

His back has been rickety this year, time to heal will do him some good.

His back functions better in the heat, if majors are played mid-summer. That is good for him.

He hasn’t been able to play a bunch of tournaments in a row for a year now. But if everyone is out of tournament shape, his disadvantage may be negated.

If they play all 4 majors at some point this year...he may be able to sneak one or two.

    • Cycling to a golf course definitely adds an adventurous twist to the game. To make it feasible, consider paring down your gear and opting for lightweight equipment. Investing in a bike rack designed for golf clubs can also help ease the transportation process. Planning your route carefully and allowing for extra time can ensure a smooth ride to the course.When it comes to protecting your bike and gear, bicycle insurance is essential. Considering the investment in both your bike and golf equipment, it's wise to have coverage for unexpected events. You can explore bicycle insurance uk to find a policy that fits your needs.
    • Are these one putt percentages? Even if those three buckets between 12 and 30 feet are all 1 for 2, that's high. 3 for 6 from 12 to 30 feet is a serious outlier. The others could be: 15/16 6/11 7/12 5/13 1/2 1/2 1/2 1/9 67 putts total, which is probably 2 rounds? My rough shot at strokes gained for that lot would be: -0.6 + -2.8 + 0.0 + 0.5 + 0.5 + 0.8 + 0.9 + 0.0 = -0.7 (PGA Tour baseline). Over two rounds that's pretty good and extremely good for a 15 index baseline. I'd think a 15 index would be expected to be somewhere in the -6 over two rounds. And that's with 3-6ft killing you.
