Tiger Woods returns today. Is anyone interested?

Asked by TenaciousDenny (1144points) February 25th, 2009

I am a casual fan of golf, but I love watching Tiger play. I haven’t watched golf since he won the US Open (which was incredible). Any other Tiger fans on fluther?

As a follow up question, now that he is fully rehabbed from the injury, do you think he will be better than ever, about the same as before the surgery, or do you think his best days are now behind him? Personally, I think he is going to be stronger and better than ever. Can’t wait to watch him play in the majors this year.

I think he’ll come back better than ever, if that’s possible. He seems to be cognizant of the fact that he creates his own success; and so far so good. I come from a long line of golf fanatics and married one, too. Tiger is a pleasure to watch.

I agree with you. I can only see his short game getting better, and now that his leg is full strength, his swing will probably end up more powerful and accurate as ever.

And lurve for you for responding to my question. By the lack of responses, I’m assuming most people here aren’t interested.

I think it’s a great Q! I always hated to watch golf on TV before he came onto the scene, now I love it! I know he has his detractors, but you cannot deny his talent. You can also not deny the attention he’s brought to the game and the inspiration he is to so many young golfers.

His game is as much mental as physical; what’s not to admire. If he can get his short game on track and his strength is up…it’ll be an amazing recovery!

@cak You got it. 2:02 to be exact…

@TenaciousDenny – I will be watching. I’ve played since I was 4 or 5. I grew up around courses – it’s just a fun game. I used to watch Payne Stewart, his death was tragic.

Of course, I remember watching Arnold Palmer, before he moved to the senior tour!

@cak I’m a bit younger than you, so my memories of Arnold Palmer are only of the Senior Tour and his finals rounds in all of the major tournaments.

I’ve been playing golf since I was a wee lad, but I never really became that interested in WATCHING golf until Tiger Woods came along. I usually would just tune in to the last few holes of the last rounds of the major tournaments, but now I find myself tracking Tiger’s progress from his first drive of the tournament until sinking that final putt.

He’s done wonders for the sport. He made it interesting, again. I’m really happy to see him return.

Tiger is a true professional. I don’t think he’d return if he was anything less that in top form. We’ll see. I’m excited!

…then why comment at all, pekenoe?

TenaciousDenny's avatar

@pekenoe If you COULD care less, then you must care a little bit. Closeted golf fan perhaps?

nope, could care less, question was, “is anyone interested?” I’m not, honest answer to a question, why not answer? It was there, I was passing by with a bit o time, I answered.

I’ve been a casual golfer all my life and I love the sport. To watch what Tiger does on the course and how he’s helped make the sport into what it is today is truly something special, in my opinion.

I haven’t watched him play since the U.S. Open either but I am really excited that he is now playing again. Every time he has had a significant event happen in his life, he has come back from it and played even better each time. (His father dying and his wife having their first child, for instance).

I wouldn’t be surprised if he wins at least 1 or even 2 major tournaments this year and he will always be gunning for Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 major championships. He has an amazing work ethic when practicing, playing, and concentrating on his golf game and he is just plain incredible.
