Tiger's Surgery The Best Thing To Happen to Him

At the US Open last week Tiger experienced something that appeared to be a turning point for his career. In one moment he went from harolded hero of golf to the closest thing to a villain golf has. Watching him wince throughout the tourney still did nothing to endear Tiger to at least this local audience. He is the greatest golfer ever, but the attitude or lack thereof in some cases leave him open for these type of discussions.

Now with the surgery, Tiger looks poised to make a comeback against some new household names. It'll be interesting to see how the season plays out and to see if there is a dominant force, which ultimately is a key to Tiger's success. The consistency he has is unparalleled. If a player can go on a run while Tiger rides the pine, it'll be for some good Golf... next year.

At the end of the day, the surgery stops the villafying of Tiger as well as gives him a much needed break from Golf. I expect him to come back fired up as soon as he's rehabbed. You can get burnt out but you can't just turn your back on the sport you love.
