Maybe he should dump his current coach and hire his ex-wife. I hear she swings a mean 9 iron.

I wouldn't bury Tiger yet. He is still ranked the #4 player in 2011 as of last week. He is the top ranked American.



I don't see how it is possible to bury an athlete of his caliber at the age of 36. Golf players have long careers. People recover from all kinds of setbacks. Sexual impropriety is rarely something that destroys a man's career. I mean look at Bill Clinton!

He's getting pretty long in the tooth for a golfer.
He should be at the peak of his career, not years
behind. He'll be on the senior tour in a few years.

Tiger's washed up.

If Tiger starts taking HGH again, he will be back on top.

Wanna bet? He may not dominate ever again, but he is certainly not washed up. He just won a strong field event a few weeks ago. I'd bet he's at least top 10 in the world after this season's Fedex Cup. I believe he shot the same score in the Master's that the best player in the world, Rory Mcilroy, shot. I don't hear any "Rory's washed up" chants.

I don't think Tiger's washed up, but will he win 11 more tournaments to pass Sam Snead in number of tournaments won. Will he win 5 more majors and pass Jack Nicklaus?

I don't think he will. I think he might have 2 - 3 more majors left in him. His last 5 years since the death of his father, the knee surgeries, and the sex scandal were all devastating to his life and career when he should have been at his prime (ages 33 - 37),

But this should be the prime of his career. But given his devotion to athleticism and the way he's torn up his body, I'm not sure he will be dominant as he was. Nicklaus won his last 4 majors at ages 38, 40, and 46. Tiger's 37 now. Between the ages of 30 and 39 for Jack, he was in the top 10 in 36 of 40 majors played.

Tiger's game is a mess. He's not consistent, he's
all over the map. He kicks clubs, spits on greens,
shows little or no respect for the game or his
fellow players. Life's a bitch when the world
ceases to be all about you, I guess. He's been
an arrogant spoiled baby since he was 6. Time
to grow up.
