LAMM AT LARGE: Tiger Woods comeback incredibly unlikely

todayDecember 1, 2021

Background

Let’s pump the brakes about Tiger Woods returning to the PGA Tour.

The golf world is all atwitter after Tiger made an appearance and spoke at length prior to this week’s Hero Challenge in the Bahamas. He did look great considering it was only nine months ago he suffered severe injuries to his legs and one ankle and foot.

And I know Tiger has made spectacular comebacks before. But he’s never had such crippling injuries and he’s never been 45 (a month shy of 46) before.

Being able to play golf and compete on the Tour against the world’s best players on the world’s toughest courses is a totally different matter.

I know everyone understands this, but you can hear their unspoken excitement about seeing Tiger tee it up again in the Masters.

It’s not happening. Just be thankful Tiger can walk and enjoy life.

LAMM AT LARGE: PGA pros may be TOO good

The PGA Tour's slogan, "These Guys Are Good", is outdated. It should be "These Guys Are Great". After three tournaments this year the winners are a combined 80 under par. At the same point last year that total was 69; the year before that 51. The courses admittedly are easy […]
