If you were holding out a dim hope of his somehow getting past the back injury he suffered under Sean Foley’s watchful swing tutelage, and that he’d incredibly come back from yet another back surgery at summer’s end – you’ve probably already heard the news.
The news being that Tiger Woods has had to undergo yet another back procedure (making it 3 in about 18 months), and prospects are dimming rapidly.
From BBC Sports:
Tiger Woods has revealed he had a follow-up procedure on Wednesday to relieve discomfort which resulted from his back surgery in September…
The statement on his website added that there was “no timetable” for the return of the 39-year-old American, who has won 14 majors.
“It’s one of those things that had to be done,” said Woods, who has dropped from world number one to 351.
And that just about says it all.
So, all of you young swingers out there who think it doesn’t matter how you swing, as long as you get it in the hole…
You’d better re-evaluate that attitude.
