Re: Tiger Woods Done For The Season

I made the comment to my father that if he was in the pain which it seemed he was in that he could be done for the rest of the year or for a good portion of the year. I hope he has a full recovery and this is not the start of his hard golf swing taking its toll on his body. If the later is the case I think he is good enough to adjust his swing.

Re: Tiger Woods Done For The Season

I'd rather watch him play for another 10-15 years than watch him destroy himself this year. Good call.

Re: Tiger Woods Done For The Season

It just goes to show you how amazing he is. He played with a subpar knee and still won on one of the grandest stages. Amazing.

Re: Tiger Woods Done For The Season

A ruptured ACL and two stress fractures and he still won 5 of the 7 tournaments he played in this year. Amazing. I'm sure he'll have the best orthopedic surgeons on earth fix that knee properly. Knowing Tiger's work ethic, he'll meticulously rehab and have another amazing season next year.

Re: Tiger Woods Done For The Season

The fact that he ruptured the ACL last July and still managed to win 10 of 13 tournies he entered, and finish no worse than 5th in the other 3 shows just how good he really is.

On the flipside, this will give some other golfers a chance to show their stuff while everyone still has Tiger's 5 round US Open win fresh in their minds.

Re: Tiger Woods Done For The Season

Greatest athlete of all time, any sport?

Gotta get those 19 majors, but this is the kind of thing that makes you think he belongs in that discussion.

Re: Tiger Woods Done For The Season

He was playing on a torn ACL and double stress fracture. Ridiculous.

Re: Tiger Woods Done For The Season

Yeah I mean com'on. A torn ACL and a double stress fracture on top of arthro 2 months ago? That is just insane. I know golf isn't the most physically demanding sport but most guys in any major sport wouldn't walk around in normal life with that makeup. If anything this shows his level of determination and how distinctly high it is.

This is why I love the guy. I am not a normal bandwagoneer for the big sports figures but I am totally in the tank for Tiger. It isn't often that someone can reasonably say they are watching the best ever at something. Especially in sports. I hope the knee gets better and he comes back and wins all four majors next year to tie the Bear.

Re: Tiger Woods Done For The Season

wow, that guy is nuts.

hats off, and no doubt he'll be back to top immediately following his return... but it's not like he's ever left the top anyways.

Did anyone see TigerCenter last night oh I mean SportsCenter? Talk about a Tiger lovefest. I thought he died at first with all the coverage.

I'm right there with you, by far my favorite golfer.

He's like Jordan. How could you ever hate Jordan?
