Golf needs Tiger Woods

As most of you know, in golf, the first name people probably think of is Tiger Woods. Tiger is a 14-time major champion, and is said to be one of the greatest golfers alive.

He has been struggling with injuries, from his knee to his back, for the last couple years, going through multiple surgeries keeping him off the course.  This year is probably one of his worst years. He hasn’t been given a date he can return, and it depends on how well he can recover physically. There has been an argument if he will return to the game or not.

I have been following him on Instagram and Twitter, where he posted a video of hitting an iron in a simulator, with the caption “progressing nicely.”  I’ve been reading online about him and checking on him. He had recently started hitting with a driver. I am hoping he will get his health better so he can make a return, and beat Jack Nicklaus’s record to be one of the best in golf.

He missed the Masters tournament that was just recently played not too long ago. A lot of people want to see Tiger back in action, not a 40 year old limping his way around the golf course struggling to make cuts. I truly want to see the Tiger because a lot of people miss him, but golf misses him the most. If Tiger can just win that one major it would build up more confidence in him, which could lead to him winning more tournaments the next couple years. It would be nice to see his name on the leader boards and on television wearing that Sunday red.
