IS TIGER FINISHED?

Tiger Woods has not won a golf tournament this year.  Has not even come close.  Last week at the PGA championiship in Georgia was his most ignominious defeat yet.  Seemingly spending as much time in water and sand as he did on the greens and the fairways,  Woods returned to the major scene with a major thud – a 77 that was the worst round of his career at the PGA.  At that point Woods needed a major turning point just to make the cut.  In the event, he missed the cut too and went home early.

Now Woods will be dropping out of public view again for another long layoff.  His next tournament will be in November in Australia.

Which begs the question.  Can Woods ever come back?  Or is he finished for good.  Recently Woods fired his caddy.  Earlier he fired his swing coach.  His wife divorced him.

Woods now seem to be confused in his head about what his approach should be.

Will Tiger ever win another major championship?

Is he finished?

What do you think?

    It has the makings of a Greek tragedy. Still, I cannot get worked up about him.

    Barbara,

    I don ‘t think the Tiger saga rises to the level of Greek tragedy, but it surely is pathetic. Sadly, I don’t think Tiger is a very nice person.

    I learned long ago that the root of the tragedy in Greek drama was the fatal flaw in the purportedly larger-than-life hero. I just saw a similarity.

    A come-back may be possible at some point, but yes, I think he’s hit bottom right now.

    Golf requires a great deal of concentration. To begin with, It is doubly hard in front of an audience in normal times. It is harder still if one has lost their wife and children. It is harder still on a green whilst putting, waiting to hear the snicker of just one person even though it doesnt happen. Some may not forgive the sin but they should forgive the sinner.
    He’ll come back after he has forgiven himself, his own worst enemy.

    What a great life lesson!

    Is there any greater proof that our success in life is 90% mental and emotional attitude?
