Shame to see one of the best players in the history of the game experience the problems Tiger has.
I dont think he will ever be competitive again, I think his career is over and he'll never win another Major again
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Tiger Woods returned to the PGA Tour after 17 months and lasted only two days.
Woods never got anything going after starting with a birdie Friday in the Farmers Insurance Open and didn't come close to making the cut. He missed a 12-foot birdie putt on his final hole on the North Course for an even-par 72 and missed the cut at Torrey Pines for the first time in his career.
"I just didn't make enough birdies," Woods said.
He finished at 4-over 148, missing the cut by four shots. It was the third straight time that he failed to complete 72 holes at Torrey Pines, the course where he has won eight times in his PGA Tour career. Woods missed the 54-hole cut in 2014 and withdrew after 11 holes with tightness in his back in 2015.
Expectations were different this time, except for Woods.
"It's frustrating not being able to have a chance to win the tournament," Woods said. "I didn't make the cut."
Woods at least kept good company. Jason Day, the No. 1 player in the world, again struggled to make cuts and shot a 74 to miss the cut for the first time since the Farmers Insurance Open last year. Also in his group was U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson, who shot 74 and missed the cut.
"Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. Amen."
I love the game of golf and admire the way he played it for many years, just don't like him.
Regardless, we may never see anything like him ever again. The competition is too strong now...and we probably have Tiger to thank for that. In actuality, we probably will see many who are "like" him but they're no longer competing against the type of competition Tiger had to face in the early 2000's. If there is a next player who can compete for 14-18 majors in his career they will likely have the same flaws and be susceptible to the same failures. I'm not sure we should wish that on anyone even if it would be fun to watch (on the course).

He is a Samson.....with way too many Delilahs.
roids will do that to you
His body has nothing to do with it. It's all in the head.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
Let's not forget all the back problems, which lead to pain killers and when there is no one to tell you NO... Life is just too easy and he can take it that way...
That's exactly my point. Everybody ages, and maturity is knowing what one's physical limitations are and how to adapt to them as they change. You don't have to rip the ball 350 yards to win championships, but you do have to know when to lay up, make putts, etc.
His opening tee shot I'd say he stung his back. Definitely winced with pain. For me this video was painful to watch.
I'm a 50 handicap, and I completely agree with this summation.
He lost it when he quit the hookers and blow. Lost his personal magic.
Projecting yourself again.
