    Tiger Returning

    Tiger is returning to competition next week. Will be interesting to see if his back is healed.

    Re: Tiger Returning

    Holy **** they kept that quiet. It was just two days ago it came out that he was swinging. If he can swing I think this is a great move rather than trying to practice and get ready for the British.


    It's all snark from here on out

    His putting and chipping is going to be insanely good.

    I'm not really a fan of the guy, but I'll watch just about any tournament with him in it. I can't figure out why, just do.

    Because he's damn good when he's playing well. I just like the competition, and getting him back ups it a level.

    Re: Tiger Returning

    I'm glad he's taken it slow and made sure he's really ready. I never really watched anything but the majors until he came along. I tried watching the Masters, but without El Tigre, it just isn't the same fore me!!

    IMO, if he can play pain free for a few years, (I think that's what his most recent swing overhaul was all about), he's got a very good shot at breaking Jack's major titles record.


    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!!

    I hope he gets back to form. It's getting boring.

    He's maybe the oldest 38 in sports history.

    Like him or hate him, golf is much more entertaining and enjoyable when Tiger is playing.

    For some, i prefer him on the sidelines and not playing. Like to watch the other players play. Tiger is turning into Kobe Bryant, in his mind he's great and has flashes of playing well, but he's way past his prime / injury prone and not going to be a champion again.

    I would like to see him come back and be top flight again but don't think it is going to happen. I think your Kobe analogy is likely pretty accurate.

    Jack won four of his majors at or after 38 years old. This isn't basketball, and there's a reason people play golf a ton during retirement.

    Kobe's had one very major injury, and up until that point, he was still great and played well damn near all the time. Let's not pretend that he wasn't still one of the top 2-3 players in the NBA prior to tearing his Achilles'.
