I voted 1 and 2+.  Logic is he is still capable of winning one major but with the current crop of youngsters, he would really need to go on a tear to win 2 or more majors.  Regular tournaments, can see him winning a few more.  All of course totally depends on him staying healthy.  Would love to see him challenge Jack's record of 18 but he needs to stay super healthy for that.  Not sure if his body can take the strain of the rep's needed for him to maintain his game at that level for the next 10 or 20 years.  Don't forget Tom Watson almost won a major at 59.

This thread became exactly what most of us knew it would.

I voted 0 &1, because IMO Tiger no longer has an advantage in the majors (meaning he doesn't hit it longer than others, he doesn't putt better & he doesn't intimidate the younger players) and I said 1 because he certainly can win in a given week but I feel that we will rarely see him compete as he has always played a very limited schedule. He is a long way from getting WGC invites and the opportunity to win those limited field events and we'll have to wait and see about things like the Fed Ex.

We can all have our opinions and biases, but really nobody here knows if and when Tiger will return to tournament golf, and if he will be competitive (be it for health or other reasons).

 

Now y'all can carry on with your Tiger bashing vs. Tiger idolizing.

I vote 0 and 0.Basically its because of why some feel hes better than jack because of strength of fields.The fields are alot better now than when Tiger was at top of his game.His age and body are not helping either.Phil is my boy and I figured he was good for 3 more majors and hes relatively healthy but the past few years have showed age defeats all.

I can see Tiger winning again.

Physically, he can recover from this back surgery, many players have had injuries and came back and won... 

But... Mentally he is gone, and may never recover, his divorce is still eating at him... He's won 8 times since the scandal... But that was '12 and '13... 

I stated in another thread, that if Tiger and Elin were still married and he would have been faithful, he may already have 20 majors... Realistically maybe 16 or 17, but when he won majors before, he won them in bunches...

He needs to make peace with whatever inner demons he has before he will ever win again

This is one of those where I hope I'm wrong, but I think Tiger is finished. This second surgery was a huge blow, not just physically but moreso mentally. I just don't have optimism he can recover, but at the same time, I truly hope he does. He's going to have to go through hell and back to get back to being competitive, but if anyone can do it, it's Tiger.

Well, like Phil, I believe Tiger's heyday is behind him and he will not win another major.  But he certainly still has the capability win a tournament or two before he retires from competitive golf.

Perhaps tiger should seek sex reassignment surgery (like Caitlyn Jenner) and take a shot at the LPGA Tour.

It's the only chance at winning another tournament.

And your only chance...

(you had to see that coming :-))

There in no way Tiggs beats Lydia Ko.

Tiger needs to realize his age & the issues with his back & develop a swing that his back can handle for years to come.     He NEEDS to become a sharp shooter like Zach - average tee shot distance, and focus on his deadly iron/wedge game & putting.    Here's a correlation ... major league pitchers often start by throwing mid 90's heat & practically all of them develop their off-speed stuff when they get older.     It's just part of getting older - Tiger's ego hasn't allowed him to realize that a change in style is necessary now - he doesn't have the body left to bang it out there 310+ REGULARLY with the young guns.    Sooner he "gets" this, sooner he has a chance at winning again. 

 

This isn't only my opinion (this is about the 3rd time I've mentioned it in these Tiger threads) ... it's Peter Kostis' opinion as well - his article in one of the golf mags last month said exactly that...

Haney mentioned that tigress is obsessed with distance. This isn't going to change.

tigress needs to retire immediately, instead of continually soiling his reputation (as a golfer) each time he plays in a tournament. His reputation as a human being is already soiled to completion.

He has been so huge to golf that I would love to see him come back and be competitive. Listening to a radio golf channel guy who brought up a good point: He has not played the same schedule of golf that the younger healthy stars are playing, and he has had serious injuries. It's been a tough 10 or so years for tiger.

It's gonna be a tough road ahead.

    • Of course I know I can take more than one. And I usually do. Every now and then this seems to be a mistake I will make.  Like I said I don't really think I make too many course management decision errors. 
    • Yep, I get that. There is so much in life that needs to be prioritized over golf. Golf is still a game. Life, and the people in need to be given more priority. Sometimes I forget that. But hopefully, there will be a time in the future when you can do your 4 day golf school. Best wishes. 
    • Both. Thanks, that's interesting. I do address the ball with the driver club head on the ground. I'll check what happens when I hover it slightly. Now I'm a "low-pegger", so at impact the driver header is pretty close to the ground. I still get a few degrees upwards AoA. I try to address the ball towards the toe with driver. Just to avoid "heeliness". Could that actually have the opposite effect? My brain thinks I need to move the club "longer out"? I can also add that I'm an inside-outer, probably coming from the inside 5 degrees.
    • Really appreciate your input, I’m not going to add more than 1.5 inches as per info I’ve read and seen on some videos such as Mcgolf. It’s for my brother and the reason I’m leaning towards keeping the ping shafts is the flex suits him, I just don’t know if the butt extension is going to make the shaft stronger or not. Was hoping someone had done it before, guess I do it and see what happens. Cheers 
    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction.
