Hold That Tiger!

6 years ago

Mia M. Jackson •  Sideline Pass Up close and sporty!

In 1995, Tiger Woods played his first U.S. Open and withdrew due to injury. Since his start, he's won the tournament and won it decisively. He won his first U.S. Open in 2000 with a score of 12-under-par, the lowest score relative to par ever posted in the major tournament. To date, his only the 5th player in history to lead the U.S. Open tournament from start to finish.

The golf word is abuzz now, wondering just what the knee and Achilles injuries continuing to plague him will do to his playing future. I'm more concerned about the mental residue of having been ranked #1 as a player and as an icon and suffering a long fall. His body won't forget how to work the course; he knows how to play golf the same way most of us know how to breathe. But the Tiger will that he used to size up, strategize, and dominate some of the toughest tour courses will need to be sharpened and reworked more than his swing.
