The Masters are coming up but one of the most famous golfers int he history of the sport will not be there to compete. Tiger Woods pulled out of The Masters a week ago and since then there has been serious discussion about his career in golf possibly being over.
It’s not that Tiger would actually quit, but it’s been made clear that his best years are behind him and his winning ways may be as well. The man Tiger became famous for chasing, Jack Nicklaus, has spoke up about the future of Tiger and says he just flat out feels bad for him.
I feel very bad for Tiger. He’s really worked towards my record. I still think he’ll break my record…As long as he is physically able to do it. … He’s 38 years old and he’s probably got another 10 years at least of being able to compete — that’s 40 more majors to win five of them. It shouldn’t be too difficult.
It’s hard to believe Tiger is just 38 years old as he seems so much more aged than he really is. He’s far from being done with golf, but he has work to do in order to reclaim the glory he achieved earlier in his career. Missing The Masters isn’t a way to do that but if it makes him healthier and gets him back on track then it’s a small loss int he greater scheme of things.
