Tiger Woods has been on a quite a roller coaster ride since his last major championship at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. Now, the 14-time major champ looks to make another return to golf after he shared a video on Twitter of him working on his short game, hitting chip shots.
His doctor gave him the OK, which means we will likely see Woods in competitive action again soon. Even with the rapidly growing popularity of Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama and Justin Thomas among others, a legend such as Woods returning to the game would just add to the purity of what surrounds the sport today.
What makes this interesting is, Woods won’t be the top dog when he returns, but instead, will be chasing players who likely idolized him growing up. Although Spieth has mentioned that the great Adam Scott was his favorite player growing up, some of the other young guns were inspired by Woods.
As I may have said before, although Woods isn’t the same player he once was, having him in tournaments will richen the depth of the field. Having veterans such as Woods, Scott, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia all playing along with the new breed is a nice blend to have in golf.
Not to mention you had a fun duel between Spieth and Matt Kuchar at The Open Championship back in July. That was a prime example of how the young bloods and experienced pros can come together to play some amazing golf.
Keep on hitting those chips Tiger.
