The Lows and Lows of Tiger Woods in 2014
Just a few days back we have come across with an interesting article on Bleacherreport about the lows of the legendary golfer Tiger Woods. As always the case with the site Bleacherreport, it has given enough space and reasons to make their case stronger on why that they feel that Tiger Woods have a forgetful 2014. The timing of the article can also not be questioned as the man himself has declared that he is not going to play anymore this year due to an injury.
In the article it starts with those four positives which actually do not matter much for the career of Tiger Woods. These four reasons are the successful microdiscectomy surgery, the Tonight Show appearance, taking the Ice Bucket Challenge from Rory McIlroy and not being the part of the Ryder Cup this year which USA lost comprehensively.
The first low of the year for Woods came at the third round 79 at the Farmers Insurance Open where Tiger Woods made two consecutive bogeys and made a mess of it. Then, during the Honda Classic, he had to withdraw during the final round due to lower back spasms and probably Woods did not take this first sign seriously and that lead him to end the season prematurely in the end.
This was probably just the beginning of the poor show by Woods this year and the WGC-Cadillac Championship has probably proved it when Tiger Woods, struggled, struggled and struggled and finished at 25th and that became his best performance this year in the end. After taking rest of nearly 3 months Tiger Woods back on the course with Quicken Loans National which is also part of his foundation. But then again he missed the cut that followed a rigorous practice session and that cost him dearly later in the season as per the article mentioned above.
Tiger Woods opened with 69 at the Open Championship this year and everyone said that, yes, he is back, but then he stumbled horribly during the next two days and finished at 69th place overall. The lack of rehabilitation of his back Tiger Woods again suffered badly in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational during the third round and again it became one of the forgetful tournaments for him.
Withdrawing from the tournament became a regular affair, with Woods when he again had to do the same at the PGA Championship at Valhalla in Kentucky after scoring 74 in both the rounds of the tournament. Probably Woods have stayed at home is the phrase Bleacherreport has used.
At the end of the season it was good that Woods finally decided not to be on the course anymore for the remaining of the year last month. Probably the 2015 will bring some cheer for the former World No. 1 golfer.
