Tour professional’s shock retirement announcement! – GolfWRX

It’s been nearly two years since Tiger Woods‘ horrific automobile crash that resulted in a devastating damage to the 15-time main champion’s proper leg. Since then, he’s performed a number of encouraging skilled rounds however as a rule, he’s simply appeared like he’s in excruciating ache.

After withdrawing from the Hero World Problem, he performed in Capital One’s The Match and plans to tee it up for the PNC Championship along with his son Charlie beginning on December fifteenth. Based on Woods, his plan is to nonetheless try and play in aggressive occasions going ahead. When talking in Albany on the Bahamas, Woods stated, “My objective is to play the main championships and one or two extra.”

Colin Montgomerie, who appeared on “The Bunkered Podcast”, revealed that he believes Tiger’s insistence on returning to aggressive golf is a mistake. “Monty” stated that Woods had a golden alternative to name it quits at this yr’s one hundred and fiftieth Open Championship at St. Andrews.

“That was the time. Stand on that bridge, begin waving, and everybody goes, ‘So, is that it?’ Yeah, it’s. It could have been a wonderful method to go. The stands had been full, the world’s TV cameras – from all continents – had been on him, he’s strolling up there on his personal, tears had been in his eyes clearly… you possibly can’t beat that stroll. I’ve achieved it myself. When the stands are full, you can’t beat that stroll.

“I used to be tearful taking part in with him in 2005 within the third spherical with the Scottish assist. I let you know what, that could be a particular, particular area. It’s a theatre. That was the time for Tiger to say, ‘Okay, I bow out.’ Why go on? Exit on the high. It’s one thing that only a few can do.”

On the Bahamas, Woods stated he nonetheless believes he can win on the skilled stage, so long as he can stroll.

“If I can try this, I can nonetheless compete with these youngsters. It’d be good to get one (PGA Tour) win, however I’d wish to get a giant one, too.”

Montgomerie disagreed with the 46-year-old’s evaluation, saying “I don’t see him doing that”.

“I don’t see him doing that, folks will say, ‘Oh come on, Monty.’ Hear, sure, he’s nice. However Tiger doesn’t need to now simply get again to the usual he was acting at then. He has to enhance it.

“The usual is bettering on a regular basis and there’s not one or two guys that may beat him now. There’s 22 guys that may beat him. So, it’s Tiger attempting to get not again to the place he was however to get to a typical he’s by no means been at earlier than and I don’t suppose that’s doable.

“I can’t see that occuring. I’d find it irresistible to occur as a result of it’s nice for the sport. I might love him to win. However I simply can’t see it taking place.”

If there’s any skilled athlete who ever lived that may be capable to overcome such a catastrophic damage, it’s Tiger Woods. Nevertheless, the correct leg doesn’t seem like getting any higher, and Father Time stays undefeated.
