What do you mean by fluke?



I mean it's like going to the casino
25 times and playing the slots and
on the 25th time you win a few
grand. Fluke.

I'm willing to make a bet his game recovers.



Agreed.

I must say he was extremely resilient in the past to numerous downfalls, doubt if things will change.

I clearly want to bet against Tiger Woods at this point. Is 46 years old and. It is not like he got injured tying shoes. He was really a great golfer and I would never criticize his performance in the past. I find it hard to believe anybody can criticize him just because his record of being absolutely marvelous came to an end.

He made $60 million in endorsements. Or about 96 percent of his overall $62.3 million in earnings."



That could have been an expensive DWI, or DUI if such was the case. He probably won't lose any of it for driving fast.

One of Tiger's ankles was crushed. Crushed. As in "broken into little pieces." On his other lower leg, both his fibula and tibia bones suffered compound fractures.

Based on my knowledge, I would say that Tiger will need to walk with a cane. Unless he is given a prosthetic foot.

He very well may spend his senior years in a chair by the fire.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Ya know? His bone was sticking
out his leg. People here act like
these are shrug-off injuries, and
Tiger has the recovery ability of
a 16 year old. It's over, he's done.
You never get back to where you
were with injuries like this, and
surely not if you're pushing 50.

I could see myself still playing golf well at 75 or older, but maybe not tennis.

So at least he's involved with a sport where he could keep playing at least on some level even after such an injury.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.

He's not 50 yet, he can't. He's
done with anything buy senior,
though. Long recovery, if he
ever does fully recover. The
ankle is the worst of it. Lots
of stress on ankles in golf.
