Golf Odds Update: Tiger Hoping To Make It Back For US Open
For year’s he’s only played the Majors, a few warm up events for the Majors, tournaments required by his sponsorship deals and any other prestigious tournament. But the fact that he’s been physically unable to play in more than just a few tournaments so far this year is news.
If Woods was a 25-year old golfer sidelined by a bad knee it would be one thing. But he’s a now a seasoned player in his mid-30’s with a history of serious knee problems most likely extending from his shear ferocity of his swing mechanics. And when put in that light his latest knee-Achilles problems are something that deserve a second thought by anyone contemplating Woods’ future in the golf betting action.
And, of course, one can’t help but think that Woods’ recent struggles go beyond simply the physical pain. In the last even the attempted to play, the Players, he finished just 9 holes –the shortest outing in the history of his illustrious career in the golf odds action- with a very sad score of +6.
After limping off the course it was obvious he was in discomfort, but how of that discomfort was physical and how much was shear frustration at playing so poorly is something only Woods knows for sure.
He has since stated that he’ll be out of the game for a few weeks and hopes to be back for the US Open. In the bigger picture, that’s not really news as he would likely only play in the Memorial during that stretch and so will likely only miss one or two tournaments.
But the fact that he’s got a lingering knee issue and has looked very bad in his most recent outings could speak to much larger problems. That’s hardly any surprise considering the events in his golf odds career over the past few years but with each missed tournament, and each new setback, it seems like Woods’ big comeback gets less and less likely.
