From the time Tiger Woods entered the professional golf world in 2006, he was a man of extraordinary promise.
He had a natural ability to drive the ball and play with grace and precision.
Woods’s most notable accomplishment as a professional golfer was his win at the 2007 Masters, which he won in a tiebreak.
The next year, Woods was ranked No. 1 in the world.
He was in the midst of a meteoric rise to stardom.
His record of 67 career major titles is the most in history.
But he has suffered through a string of injuries, and in the summer of 2015, Woods broke his collarbone.
He went on to miss six weeks of work, then returned a year later to compete in the Tour of California.
Woods suffered another major injury during the final round of the 2017 Masters Tournament, when he collided with the back of his helmet and landed on his left arm.
In the process, he suffered a concussion, broken ribs, and other injuries that forced him to miss the remainder of the tournament.
He is still in the hospital, but has been in and out of the game since.
Woods returned to the professional ranks in February of 2018 and has won his first two major championships since then.
Woods, who is 36, had the kind of career that had never been attempted before.
He made history by being the first player to win a Masters and a U.S. Open in the same year.
His accomplishments were matched only by his love of golf.
“My life has been amazing, but there is always something you need to do to get back to what you were before,” he said during a 2016 interview.
“So, there is something I’m doing every day that I feel like I need to be doing right now.”
What has Woods done to return to his best?
He has gone from a player who was the most likely to score a point at the PGA Tour, to the player most likely not to be awarded a shot in the majors.
His lack of a career tour title and the loss of a major championship have put the spotlight on his injury and its impact on his career.
Woods has struggled with mental health issues.
Woods recently released a memoir, which was the first of its kind, that describes his battle with depression.
It is a difficult book to read and has a strong message about recovery.
Woods was also forced to live in a trailer park after he was hospitalized for a concussion in 2018.
His recovery from that injury, and his recovery from the concussion, have been uneven.
He has had a hard time getting back on the golf course.
“He’s been out of shape for so long that he doesn’t even know when he’s going to get a workout,” said former PGA Professional, David Scott, who played with Woods at the Masters.
“And he’s just not good at it.”
Woods said his health is his priority.
“I’m doing everything I can to get healthy again,” he told The Wall St Journal.
“As far as my life, my goals, my priorities, it’s not about the golf.”
But the golf community needs to help him with mental and physical recovery.
He’s an accomplished golfer, and he should be able to compete with the best.
His career is not a long one.
He won five major titles, including the Pardee Trophy and the Pampers, in 2017.
He finished his career with four more majors, including his second Masters victory.
He will have two more tournaments on the PBA Tour this year.
He’ll be 32 when the PWC Tour opens in 2019.
Woods can make his retirement announcement on March 4, 2021, at the New Jersey Open, which will be held in Newark, New Jersey.
He plans to make his last appearance on the Tour in 2019, the PBC Classic, where he finished sixth.
He still has three more years left on his deal, and there’s a possibility he could retire before he hits 40.
The golf world can help Woods make the right decisions by making sure he gets help.
There are plenty of programs to help.
Golfers can donate to charities like the Tiger Woods Foundation and the Tiger Family Foundation.
Golf has been a big part of Woods’s life, and the people in his life should know how much they are helping.
Golf, as a sport, is an incredible thing to do.
Woods is a true champion of it, and to take on so much of it and not be able see it through to the end is what he does best.
He should be proud of what he’s achieved.
