The Road to Winning... Again: Tiger Woods
Tiger’s health has improved. That was no longer a detriment to his seemingly endless comeback. But opening rounds of 77-73 at the 93rd PGA Championship last month sent Woods packing for the weekend and feeling like he needed more practice and more time to work on his swing. "I need some work," Woods said after his early exit from Atlanta Athletic Club's Highlands Course. "It's a matter of just doing the work. I need to go out there and spend hours getting it done.”
Many people believe that Tiger should go out and play on the Nationwide Tour to get his game back. But quite honestly, Tiger would probably loose playing on the “lesser” tour. The Nationwide Tour is frothing with talent that will, in a year's time, be playing—and quite possibly winning—on the "big" tour.
Still, Tiger Woods is obviously not opposed to playing in "lesser" tournaments. Earlier this week, he said he would compete in the Frys.com Open in early October at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, Calif., an event he has never participated in before.
Tiger Woods can practice and play all he wants, but it will be the combination of a clear mind, healthy body and then a comfort level with his golf swing—in that order—that will, at the very least, put him back in contention at PGA Tour events.
It was obvious from some of the swings from Woods at the PGA Championship that he had, at times, completely lost his focus. He spent time in 22 bunkers and put five balls in the water. He also botched one putt so badly he almost missed the ball.
Tiger Woods is planning to put in tons of work on his game this upcoming year. Practice makes perfect, as they say. And to get in on some competitive rounds of golf won't hurt him, either. But like the great Bobby Jones said, until he's at peace on the five-and-a-half-inch course between his ears—until he is honestly able to sort through and eliminate the clutter, both personal and professional, that has plagued him the past few years of his life—he'll continue to struggle.
To gather information on the future career of Tiger Woods, I googled “will Tiger Woods ever win again.” Tons of articles came up, and I feel like the one I choose had the best information. It wasnt to long and it carried lots of information on Tiger’s future plans for himself. I think that it is the perfect article for my discussion.
