Tiger seems to have injuries after injuries. He was having back spasms and had to withdraw from a couple of tournaments. Finally he decided to have back surgery, based on his doctor's advice. I am disappointed that he will not be at the Masters.
At age 38, it's hard to tell if Tiger will ever win another major. He has to go through rehab, reconditioning, and he is probably going to miss most of this year. I don't see how he can be in game shape. The possibility of tying Nickaus is looking less and less. The last time he won a major was in 2008! I always found him to be an exciting golfer. There was an aura about him, until the last 3-4 years. I really hope he can make a comeback next year.
