    This poor guy is never going to win another major. I knew that was likely the case before, but I always had a shred of hope that he could recover and make another run.

    But after this? No way.

    Except for the fact his eyeballs aren't bloodshot, he looks totally 'baked' to me.

    I remember right after Tiger's troubles began, Charles Murray said "it's over. Tiger will probably never win another Major, he definitely won't beat Nicklaus' record." I thought he was overstating the case, but he was bold early, and right.

    Cal,

    Nice column, but I don't see anything about Murray claiming that Tiger will "probably never win another major." To the contrary, Murray says that Tiger probably *will win* a "few more majors," but that he still won't catch Jack.

    Murray was far too optimistic. Tiger has dropped off a cliff. He's only won eight golf tournaments (and no majors) since 2010 - three tournaments in 2012 and five tournaments in 2013.

    And Tiger hasn't won at all since August 2013 at the Bridgestone Invitational.

    Of course he's only played 24 times since that last victory

    He's done as a top golfer. Problems likely run much deeper than media letting on. For all we know he might need a stint in drug/alcohol rehab. His back is alleged to be totally shot.

    Pincher Martin:

    "His back is alleged to be totally shot."

    I've read he's had four back surgeries in the last three years.

    That's insane.

    Sterling Dingleberry:

    Totally insane. Multiple back surgeries in such a short period of time equals lots of chronic backpain -- which can result in increased consumption of prescription pain medications which can frequently result in addiction. JMO, but I suspect he's now got a bigger problem than his back.

    Henry Jones:

    Yeah, at first when it seemed like alcohol was to blame I thought "I have no sympathy" but. . . . .well, I dunno, I never much liked him. I heard he was a major assh*le but no one wanted to say so.

    That said, I know how much chronic pain can mess people up so I think I have more sympathy with the drugs thing.
