Tiger is done. Stick a fork in him. We have seen the last of competitive Tiger. He is now a "Greg NOrman". A used to be.. am I right?

He will never be what he was again. The only way he will ever compete again will be to adjust his game around his limitations and learn to play old man golf (no insult intended).

He's been a used to be for some time now. We'll just have to listen to the announcers talk about him instead of covering the on course action.

Just now,

Athletes with egos never know when to call it quits. This will be a long drawn out affair until the completion of the PGA Championship.

I don't know if he is done or not. I just wish golf channel would stop talking about it so much and let us watch the players that are out there now. Golf is not dead so give us a break.

First truly great golfer to have truly been plagued by injuries. Ben Hogan doesn't count since he was able to rebound and continue winning after the car accident. Tiger joins guys like Terrell Davis, Bo Jackson, Yao Ming, Bobby Orr, Tracy McGrady, and Sterling Sharpe as guys who could have built on even more incredible careers if not for injury. Except Tiger is by far the leader in this sport, where as those other guys all have competition. It's a shame. He probably would have broken Jack's major record, even after the scandal based on how well he was playing in 2013. The fact he won't break Snead's 82 Tour wins is the real stunner. That was a done deal four summers ago.

You say that like his injury was unexpected. Tiger has changed the way the game is played and has moulded more young golf swing than you can imagine. But make no mistake, Tiger hasn't had any injuries - he wore out. Just like droves of kids after him that copied his model will in the years to come. Rory's competitive career won't see 40 years old with the swing he has. You heard it here first.

You're suggesting the PGA should fold, because there is no "competition"?

Oh I completely agree. For all the times people have said Tiger's training was that of a more physical sport athlete's training, he made his career more like it as a result. Phil's still playing well and contending with 6 years on Tiger. Rory's a bit injury prone and so is Jason Day. They each train similarly to Tiger. Will they continue to win? For sure, but they will probably fizzle out at a similar point as to when Woods did.

I, know it's not popular to say this. Because of the Negative press. but, I'm a Tiger fan. Love watching Tiger play, I'm not ready to write Tiger off. Tiger, get strong & healthy.

He's tried to get healthy Daniel, it's been a year and a half. That swing has ruined him and unless he feels confident on the tee knowing that he's going to hit it 280 and lay up on a lot of par-5's, his career is over. He's has to beat his ego before he ever beats anybody on the PGA tour again.

Glad he is done....

Do you want an a$$ like him to hold the career major wins over Jack?

Would be just like Bonds, a real a$$hole holding the record.

Tiger only started being a real person after his 'incident' and had to come back to earth and be nice to people.
