Tiger to miss the rest of the year with surgery. SOunds like a pretty bad injury too, hope he can still come back 100%.

I hope someone emerges from the pack to win a few tournaments, and build the confidence to face Tiger when he returns. Much as I like Tiger, I think it would be good for golf if he had to face a credible rival on a regular basis.

It will never be the same, if your not competing with the best in your class it's kind of a letdown.

There was golf long before Tiger, there will be golf when he is gone. He may be the greatest golfer ever to play, but the sport will survive.

Bobby Jones won the grandslam and was given a ticker tape parade, when he returned from Europe. The crowds may have been bigger than anything even Tiger has seen. Golf continued to be popular when he retired at a young age.

Hopefully someone else can step it up, and maybe Tiger will have some competion whan he returns.

back in the day you could get a ticker tape parade for winning a game of hop scotch

Don't knock it, hopscotch can be a very challenging game what with all the rocks to bruise your toe on, not to mention that caustic chalk.:smilie39:

I bet Tiger could win at hop scotch, even with a stress fracture..

Somebody will win now that Tiger is out but the old saying is still true.
If you want to be The Man, you have to beat The Man.
