Forget a comeback, Tiger Woods needs to get 18 holes under his belt
If you think Big Cat's return is going to be soon, you're only fooling yourself
Lost in the hubbub of Tiger Woods dropping three consecutive shots in the water at Congressional was the fact that he still hasn't really played that much golf recently. Not even close to enough to warrant thoughts of a comeback anyway.
Woods told the Washington Post he still hasn't played 18 consecutive holes since his final round at the Wyndham Championship last fall.
Last month, he played five holes in public to mark the opening of the back nine of Bluejack National, the club outside Houston he designed. He said he hasn't played 18 consecutive holes at Medalist Golf Club, the course he calls home, just up U.S. 1 from his Jupiter Island, Fla., house, which is in the midst of its most heavily trafficked time of year.
"I just don't have the patience," Woods said, and he laughed.
Haha. Haha. Ha. Huh?
This would be a strange statement for somebody trying to get their "feels" back. A professional. A maniac even. Tiger Woods is none of those things. He's far beyond all of them. He's a possessed historic athlete who sounds like he doesn't much care if and/or when he returns to the sport. He even said as much.
"It's brutal," Woods told the Post regarding rehab. "Do I want to go through that whole process again, of getting back? Some part of me said yes. Some part of me said no, because it is hard."
Fair enough. Big Cat owes us nothing. Which is exactly what we should expect for the forseeable future.
