I think a poll that belongs on this thread is:  do you think Big Cat ends 2019 at #1 in the OWGR?  

If he keeps playing the way he has since the US Open, yes.

If you look at the raw OWGR points earned since the US Open, Tiger is a very close third behind Bryson and Francesco.  They have both won twice since then, and both have about 175 points to Tiger's 170.  Everybody else in the top 12 is well below that -- Spieth and Day have around 40 points.

From the comfort and driving he demonstrated last week, it seems to me that Tiger is in better shape now than he was at the beginning of 2013, when he won five times, so I think he'll win at least four events.  Whether one is a major or not depends only on which weeks he's playing well, because he is now playing well enough to beat any competition when he's on his game.

I voted 4-5, with 1 major. He's the best player in the world RIGHT NOW.

I see this is an older topic now, but that's my prediction on September 28.

I think we will see a much better tiger next year. Think about how good he played the end of this year and his strength and conditioning were no where near where he likes to be.  He was legit sporting a belly and no chest at the Ryder Cup. Now that he knows he can trust his back for the swing let him have time, get a good couple months in the gym. I'll admit I'm a tiger fan boy and I hope he stays healthy enough to break Snead  and Jacks records. I think he'll accept he's not the longest hitter on tour anymore and eat people's lunches with his iron game.  I think the true condition of his back was proven when he spent all weekend hitting out of that nasty ass rough in Paris and barely even winced. I'm excited for a few more years of tiger.

I think he has a good shot at every major this coming year and will likely win one. He nearly won two this year not far removed from his competitive comeback after a several year absence and while still clearly continuing to improve. If he stays healthy, he'll be competitive in likely most every major he enters.

I am most definitely NOT a Tiger hater.  I don't think he'll win at all this year.  Too many young and great players that I'm very excited about.

You do know he won last year and finished really high in relevant stats, right?

In his first year back from major surgery.

I do know that.  He was amazing, as was his swing speed.  I still don't think he'll win this year.  Let's see what happens.  I think he'll have 2 good rounds but not 4.  I think Sunday will be a problem for him, but not the younger guys.  Just a hunch.

I'm going with 2 wins, one of them being a major.

I agree he has a fair chance to win couple of tournaments. 

I don't know about winning a major. Too many young strong players now....

.

Before his personal life exploded, I thought he'd easily break Jack Nicklaus' record. But, now.........~shrug...

After watching the ESPN special and getting an even better look at what he went through just shows how impressive his comeback is. It really got me thinking Tigers talent was more than what his body could handle if that makes sense to anyone here. The full swings from incredibly awkward stances ripping through heavy cabbage had to cause wear even he wasn't aware of during the younger days.

Tiger started more than 15 tournaments since 2013. He made the cut in 16 out of the 18 tournaments, and made the top 25 in 12 of them! He was in contention in many of the tournaments.

Woods needs to work on his Day's 1 & 2 scoring. He was ranked 62nd and 46th in scoring average for rounds 1 and 2.

He is actually ranked nearly the same for days 2 and 4. I don't think he is wearing out on Sundays. He was still ranked 5th in strokes gained average per round last year.

The big thing is that Tiger won late in the season. Even after playing in his first full season he won at the end. This says that he wasn't bothered by his first season back. Now that he has an offseason to rest up, continue to work on the swing changes he made, and get prepared for the new season. I think he'll be positioned to win multiple times next year.
