Tiger Woods’ Domination Will Continue
With the Ryder Cup approaching and the USA favourites to win at 11/10, Europe trailing at 5/6, the most notable factor at the start will be the omission of a certain Mr. Tiger Woods. Through injury as opposed to a seemingly impossible lack of form, Woods has withdrawn. However, his place at the top of Golf’s elite has never been stronger.
He started the season with an eight stroke victory at the Buick International, moving on to win several other championships and then embarked on the US Open. Needing to Birdie on the 18th against Rocco Mediate he did so with a 12 foot putt and secured a playoff for the following day. At his strongest point in the playoff he led by three strokes, but again needed to birdie the 18th and, again, pulled it off. When Mediate missed his sudden death putt on the first hole Woods made par, winning his 14th Major. Such calm play would be commendable under normal conditions, but when Woods announced the extent to which he had been playing through injury, his fellow sportsmen and pundits alike voiced their respect for him; he had played with a ruptured cruciate knee ligament for ten months, the same injury which rule Michael Owen out of football for nearly two years.
Woods’ lead at the top of the PGA World Rankings is so superior that he could afford himself the luxury of taking three years off from playing and still not risk losing his position if he came back with good form. Although Woods is planning to miss only the rest of the year, it shows his dominance light of his competitors; we may never see a better golfer. Woods has already shown his ability to overcome the odds after winning the 2006 US Open following the death of this father. Whilst that personal victory was one of emotional strength, Woods’ professionalism and skill should see him overcome his injury problems and return to his winning ways in style.
