Welp with the back failure, I dont think we'll see TW this year. Here's to hoping he can heal properly and maybe we can see flashes next year of the Tiger that was.
I agree that Tiger is likely done for the year. More than anything, he needs to look very closely at this Foley influenced swing and DITCH IT. The contortions necessary to twist your spine against a fixed lower body in unhealthy! For the life of me, not sure I understand its popularity. Jack Nicklaus won 18 majors with a rhythmic swing that lifted his left heel. Injured only once in his career at age 44 screwing up his left knee ON THE TENNIS COURT according to an article in Golf Magazine online! Look no further modern pros - your far better forefathers - Player, Watson, Nicklaus, Trevino, Casper, Hogan, Snead, Jones et al all used ergonomically correct swings. That's why they lasted as long as they did! Even Rory McIiroy has made some changes to his swing and now lefts his left heel in the backswing alleviating pressure on the spine. Yeah Rory!

NO Ryder Cup for Tiger...Phil? He is in a down cycle at the moment and Watson may just go for additional young gusto...
