Tiger Woods' slow track back to the golf course

Tiger Woods always did everything fast – swing a club, live his life, win majors. Now his only road back to professional golf may be to exhibit a level of patience, a belief in the long road that he never used to need.

Woods essentially announced in a blog post on Wednesday he would miss all four major championships this year.
He is likely done for the entire year. The recent fusion surgery on his back has left him feeling better but nowhere near returning to strenuous activity.

“I can’t twist for another two and a half to three months,” he wrote.

If he can’t twist, he can’t swing. The U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship will all be played in the next two and half months. With April’s Masters already skipped, there goes 2017. He hasn’t played in a major since missing the cut in the 2015 PGA.

Maybe Augusta in 2018 has a chance.

“Presently, I’m not looking ahead,” Woods wrote. “Right now, my sole focus is rehab and doing what the doctors tell me. I am concentrating on short-term goals.”

If anything this is a positive for Woods fans that want the sport’s most dynamic star to return to play. No one – or at least no one shouldn’t – expect the “old Tiger” to exist again. Injuries and age (41) have made that person but a glorious memory. It’s long been delusional to believe there is a magic switch to flick here.
