Tiger Woods out for the season


This is not a sick prank;

Per CNN.com
Tiger Woods will miss the rest of the season because of his left knee requires more surgery, The Associated Press reports, quoting a person with knowledge of the decision. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement was not official. Woods was expected to discuss his future on his Web site later today. Full story soon.

I guess Jack's all time most major tourney wins record will stand for at least another season.

I hope he is okay & is able to return soon .
I probably won't be watching much golf without him playing.

^^^Yes, I wish him well also. He's a class act and will certainly be missed this season.

Poor guy.

How will he survive financially?............ with the down time in his chosen profession.

Sincerely, I'm bummed for him, on many levels, not the least of which is my own passion to watch him play.

I feel for him, and his caddy..........what do you do with yourself when you know you're not doing what you DO for that long?
Well, maybe Tiger will have another 'cub'

It seems clear from the story that he knew when he dropped out of the Memorial that he should not have played the Open. Although he risked and probably further damaged the knee by playing, from the story it seems like he did not significantly lengthen the recovery time. What will be interesting to see is if he can continue to change his swing (moving the hip forward) to eliminate the "pop" on his left knee instead of just reducing it.

Yup i wonder what they'll do on the tour to keep the unruly patrons quiet and still without Tiger & Steve to point out the culprits??

Tiger makes over 100 million a year in "off the course" earnings...no mac & cheese for him anytime soon!

I wish him a successful recovery and have no doubt that if he has to adjust his swing/game he'll figure it out, get it dialed in and continue on his winning ways. It shouldn't affect his putting and he's only the greatest clutch putter of all time in my opinion...how about the putt on the 72nd hole and the two eagle putts on the back 9 on Saturday. Amazing!

I was discussing this in rehab yesterday with my PT. He says the injury he has should be easilly repaired with little long-term career impact. Long-term post pro life may be different with arthritis as most likely.

I suspect Tiger will still be making plenty of public appearances at PGA events, charity functions, etc.. He'll also be making lost of cash from product endorsements.

It just occurred to me today that Tiger probably could have requested a cart and ridden the last rounds of the US Open. Casey Weibring did a few years ago at some other PGA events.


Hat's off to him for "Manning Up". Would anybody else even consider that option? I might

The tour will still be exciting without Tiger! There are a lot of fierce competitors and facinating personalities. For example, Kenny Perry is having a good year.

Actually, they should just shut it down for the year.

Who?

(I like Kenny Perry, but he is NOT a facinating personality. You could line up Kenny Perry with 10 other guys and 98% of golf viewers wouldn't be able to pick him out. He needs to take his hat off once in a while, that "golfer tan" he has is downright scary)

Who? My point exactly.
