It’s an exciting time for golf as the President’s Cup is here again. However, some alarming news may have overshadowed the colorful team event as it relates to Tiger Woods, who is an assistant captain for team USA.
On Wednesday, when asked if he could visualize a scenario where he may never play competitive golf again, Woods gave a quick but surprising answer.
“Yeah, definitely,” Woods said according to Golf Digest. “I don’t know what my future holds for me”.
However, before the answer, Woods did mention some positive things. He mentioned that he was “feeling great” and “hitting the ball really straight” according to the Golf Digest.
So there are positives for Woods fans to come away with. However, his “yeah, definitely” response may make some fans gulp hard in fear.
If the end is truly near, then there’s plenty of reason to still be excited about Woods’ future. He has been quickly making a name for himself as a golf course designer so although he may not be dazzling fans with amazing putts anymore, he can delight fans with some artistic course designs.
My only hope is that he makes most of his courses public throughout his career. There are far too many private clubs and to have a couple of quality public courses designed by one of golf’s greatest “course readers” would be a treat for all.
Not only this, but Woods can become a great captain in future team events for the American team. He’s a “player’s player” so his team would rally behind him easily.
So, it’s not all doom and gloom Tiger fans. Besides, he still could return to play anyway. Just know it could be some time before he makes that return.
In the meantime, it’s cool to see him out there as an assistant captain at the President’s Cup. Lead captain Steve Stricker looks to help carry the American squad to their 11th President’s Cup title.
