    Golf is a game, not a sport. Tiger Woods is the greatest gamer of his generation.

    no one is arguing that he is going to be 2000's tiger ever again but he is still a great golfer who is a legit contender to win a major

    you saying "he is done" was really dumb and i am sorry people pointed out how dumb you were being

    "He's done" as in being the old Tiger. That's not coming back. Not he's done as in he's never gonna win anything else as long as he plays. Ties in with that 'he's back' shit. Tiger's 'back' is a different standard than most anyone elses 'back'. He's back playing some good golf but he's not 'back' and wont ever be.

    you mean the 43 year old coming off multiple back surgeries isnt going to be the most dominant golfer in the history of the sport again like he was in his 20's? that's wild

    You're goddam right I do. Shooters shoot. He's probably banged 0.5% of the bitches that have propositioned him in his lifetime. Dudes a saint! He's also a fucking savage on the golf course.

    Link to where someone said he was back to being the most dominant player ever? Or are you just assuming "He's back!" means more than he's back to being competitive at the highest level after tears of being injured?

    So that's a no, you don't? I don't think anyone has suggested he's back or will ever be back to where he was. You're just making that up. He's back on the biggest stage after being gone for several years. That's all "He's back" means. You're just reading more into it than you should.

    he is back but it is a trial basis back of one calendar year from his last win (rolling trial) until he wins a major and then he is full fledged back

    please note this on your scorecard

    Thanks for showing everyone that you have watched exactly 0 golf coverage the last 2-3 years. But please keep thinking "He's back" from the media just means 'he's back out on the course'. Sweet Christ dbl that's dumb even for you.

    To say he is “back” implies that he is somewhere he was before. He has never left the golf course for a full year so you can not say he is back golfing. He has either been the most dominant player on the planet or an also ran except for a few outlier years in his career.

    Say he is golfing at a really high level again if you want to but to say “he is back,” that just does not line up with the data.

    I never said "Back out on the course." He's back to being competitive in big tournaments. He's back to being a factor. He's back to drawing eyeballs to the game. That hasn't happened in a while. Him being back in those ways, even if he's not and will never be back to what he was in his 20's, is still a big deal.

    Just admit you don't like dude. That much is clear from this thread.

    Lol at this thread. Tiger didn’t just cheat. He’s one of the most famously depraved cheaters in recent history. He received some pretty serious cosmic justice for it though.

    I would like to see him win one more time.

    But i would also like to see a rematch of Tobias versus devine

    And if I had to choose I would probably go with the latter.

    Being serious for a minute here, tiger winning or at least being in it on Sunday until the end would be huge for golfing right? If you like the sport you can’t really be against it unless what I just said isn’t true.

    It would be a great story and I would definitely tune in, I would probably not tune in if I see that Fowler is -3 and whoever else he is playing head to head on Sunday is -4.

    I want drama

    :idk: I don't mind seeing him win. Nor do I care when he loses or 'withdraws' because he knows he isn't going to win. Im just not dumb enough to think "he's back" is meant in a 'he's back to playing golf' sense.

    Exactly, you said nothing. “He is back.” He either is what he was or he is not. If he is not what he was then he is not back. To go back someplace you have to have been there before. He has either been the most dominant player on the planet or he hasn’t been close to it throughout the entirety of his career. Which one are you saying he is “back” to?

    Or maybe he is someplace new. A really top level golfer that competes well in tournaments.

    It means he's back to being relevant. I mean fuck, we're talking about him now.

    And even that post showed you dont like him with the "withdraws bc he knows he wont win" comment. Kinda weird that you wont just say you dont like him. It would explain your other takes.

    "He's back" is different than "He's back to being the most dominant player ever." He's back to being relevant in the sport. It's weird that a couple of you cant grasp that.

    Was there ever a point in time since he won his first major when Tiger wasn’t the topic of conversation in golf?

    He’s been relevant since 1997. Nothing has changed there.
