Tiger Woods: Why Tiger Should Stay Far Away from the U.S Open
Tiger Woods must be smart about his future
Tiger Woods is a shell of his former self, and that is putting it lightly.
The worlds greatest golfer bowed out of the Players Championship(the ill-advertised “5th Major) after a disastrous start to a first round filled with an aching knee and a broken swing.
Bob Harig of ESPN.com reported that when asked about Tiger coming back to the sport, PGA commissioner Tim Finchem made it clear Tiger doesn’t have to play until he’s ready and they would never pressure him to play.
We don't pressure any player to play the tournament. In this case the suggestion is somehow he was hurt and we got him to play anyway. Tiger doesn't [play] a tournament unless he thinks he can win. I was on the range with him Tuesday, I watched him hit balls. He practiced that day, he practiced Wednesday hard. And he tweaked it yesterday. So, non-issue.
If Tiger is smart he listens to the cries of the commissioner and stays away for the near future. He’s a smart enough man to know that the longer he continues to try and hobble through tournaments the worse his knee will be and the less likely he is to ever regain his form.
Skipping the U.S Open, and even the British Open wouldn’t be ideal for a man chasing golf’s immortal record. But it could keep him from someday having to cut his career short.
There is no major in golf worth risking your health. Even if you are Tiger Woods.
