Welcome to a Masters free of Tiger. Well, this is for the second time in three years that Tiger Woods would be missing this highly anticipated event.
And fans must get used to this site. But if we be honest, everyone would agree that this is not something that people would stay used to.
Golf is nothing without Tiger – a lot of people believe that. He is one of the greatest players whose back gave out at last. It is disturbing for some that arguably the most important player is not here playing this year
He is missing, but still he is very much present everywhere. There is not a press conference that goes by where his name is not mentioned. The kudos lavished upon him by the young people who grew up hero-worshiping him, the same person who are now taking over the game from him, is enlightening and laudatory. This is bit press conference, and bit oral history.
While the former # 1 golfer is struggling hurt to get back to his previous glorious position, David Love has advised him to go for more plays. According to the American Ryder Cup spearhead, tournaments would be able to cure Woods’ rust and lead him towards better performances.
According to Love, Tiger must not only focus on majors and he should try his chances at regular events as well.
In spite of his 2 month self-imposed hiatus to fix up his faltering performances, the former # 1 was able to finish in top twenty at the recently concluded Augusta National. After that, the 39-year-old did not specify when he would reappear and simply said that he would on a off for some time.
But according to golf pundits, Woods would be actually making a mistake if he turns his back to competitions ahead. This is especially more relevant when he is aspiring for Ryder Cup in 2016 – he is needed to extend his limited schedule as this would be really helpful in getting back to his previous confident form.
