Tiger Woods’ career:

    When Barack Obama learned of Tiger Woods’ car crash this week, he took to Twitter: “The GOAT of golf,” wrote the former President. “If we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s to never count Tiger out.” But is this really the end of Woods’ golf career? Certainly, his injuries make for grim reading — multiple fractures to his tibia requiring the insertion of metal rods, broken bones protruding through the skin, and countless screws and pins in his feet and ankles. Factor in five back surgeries (the most recent in December 2020) and ongoing issues with his left knee, and it’s difficult to see how his road to recovery is going to be anything other than long and arduous, as Jonathan Gelber, orthopaedic surgeon and author of “Tiger Woods’s Back and Tommy John’s Elbow: Injuries & Tragedies That Transformed Careers, Sports and Society,” explains. “Tiger will likely get back to...

    Tiger Woods may be one of the world’s best when it comes to golf but he’s had a series of troubles behind the wheel throughout his career — including two crashes that rattled his personal life.  Most infamously, in 2009 he smashed up his Cadillac Escalade when he crashed into a neighbor’s tree outside his Florida home — further exposing the explosive cheating scandal that tarnished his career and cost him his marriage to model Elin Nordegren. Woods was knocked unconscious in that crash and later rescued by Nordegren, who used a golf club to bust open the car’s windows and drag him out onto the street, where EMS found him snoring without any socks or shoes on.  The intense scrutiny over the cause of the crash, and the mystery behind why he was leaving his home at 2:30 in the morning, eventually led to the revelation of a series...

    (CNN)There's inevitably a salacious aspect to "Tiger," an HBO documentary about the rise and fall of Tiger Woods, since what happened in Vegas -- and elsewhere -- definitely didn't stay there. Overall, though, this engrossing two-part film captures the forces that shaped the golf legend, renewing appreciation for his staggering talent while waving a cautionary flag regarding how it was forged.At its core, "Tiger" represents the oldest of tales: A child trained from an early age to be extraordinary in a chosen field, while sacrificing many of the usual trappings associated with childhood. Growing up that way can become a prescription for a kind of belated adolescence indulging in the perks of wealth and fame, and under the watchful eyes of an eager media if you trip up.The key figure from that perspective becomes Woods' father, Earl, who turned his golf-playing toddler into a media novelty -- showing off his...

    Tiger Woods made history Sunday at the 2020 Masters, history he’ll wish he could soon forget. Woods had a complete meltdown on the par-3 12th hole at Augusta National, hitting his ball into the water three times while shooting a 10 in what is the highest number he’s recorded on a hole in his professional career. Tiger Woods recorded a 10 on the par-3 12th hole at the Masters. Getty Images The 44-year-old defending Masters champion’s first two shots on the hole rolled into Rae’s Creek, where he sent another ball from the bunker across the green. The septuple-bogey moved Woods to 4-over for the tournament. Woods, who began the day 11 shots back of leader Dustin Johnson, did manage to record five birdies over his final six holes to finish the tournament 1-under, but the ignominy was already cemented.
    Tiger Woods was not surprised by his return to form at the Masters, believing his knowledge of Augusta can be key as he positioned himself among the contenders.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — Phil Mickelson was already in the air. With storms in the forecast, he left as soon as he was finished playing to fly back home to California with his wife, Amy. But Mickelson knew the significance of what was about to take place. Tiger Woods was going to win the Masters in April 2019, win it for the fifth time in a career that was halted in its tracks by a series of back injuries and off-course scandal and looked like it may never again produce moments like what was about to take place. So, Mickelson’s last act before leaving the golf course for the airport — with Woods still making birdies on the back nine — was to scrawl a message in black Sharpie on an Augusta National Golf Club logoed cocktail napkin and pin it to Woods’ locker in the Champions Locker Room. It read:...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Tiger Woods has gotten to spend some extra time with his green jacket. Maybe that’s just what he needs to rekindle a spark in his magnificent game, to prove again that he’s not all washed up. Nineteen months removed from that magical Sunday at Augusta National — and a quarter-century since he first played the Masters as an amateur — Woods looks very much like an aging golfer whose best days are behind him. But this hallowed course has always been the place where he shines the brightest, no matter the personal tribulations, no matter the injuries, no matter the inevitable march of time. Will the 44-year-old be able to muster those mystical forces one more time? “Do I expect to contend? Yes, I do,” Woods said Tuesday, not hesitating in the least. “This is a golf course in which having an understanding how to play...

He’s won five green jackets. He’s still the most intimidating player in the game when he’s coming downhill at Augusta National, even at 44 years old. And, of course, he's Tiger. Under normal circumstances, all those things would weigh heavily in Woods' favor, but it’s painfully obvious to all that these are not normal circumstances.

    Tiger Woods has made enough double bogeys in his career to understand anything in golf is possible, especially in the U.S. Open. But two on the same hole with a pair of fluffed chips in successive rounds? That’s a stat that won’t make the cut when it comes time to review Woods’ spectacular career. Woods didn’t make the cut Friday, either, which was surprising only to his most sycophantic fans. His game was spotty coming in, and if he had to play Winged Foot every week of his pro career he might still be looking for his first win. He missed fairways and he missed putts. He likely missed the thousands of fans who would have cheered his every move and maybe even have gotten him moving in the right direction, had they been allowed to attend. About the only thing he didn’t miss was the private jet that was...

He was Masters champion for a fifth time and had won the Tour Championship seven months prior. He seemed primed for another major championship run after breaking through with No. 15. Some even discussed the idea of him winning the season Grand Slam in 2020 to tie Jack Nicklaus for the most majors in history with 18. Then a neck/back injury derailed the second half of his season and we've been waiting for him to compete in another major ever since. © Provided by...
