Tiger Woods Will Never Be the Same, But Will Still Break Jack Nicklaus’ Record

Tiger Woods majors record

Tiger Woods will never be the same, but he will still break Jack Nicklaus‘ majors record.

I know that Woods hasn’t won a major in what seems like forever, but that is how much faith I have in him to pull off the unthinkable. And yes, at this point, Woods breaking that record is pretty unthinkable because he can’t even get on the golf course and is missing majors left and right — sort of.

Unless if Tiger Woods announces that he will no longer play the sport he loves, he still has a chance. He only has to win four more majors. Golf is not an easy sport and the mental side of it is unlike anything else, but you don’t have to be young to win golf tournaments.

In case if you forgot, Woods reclaimed the No. 1 World Ranking after basically falling off of the map. He has lost that ranking recently, but he also hasn’t been playing.

Woods is the best golfer that this sport has ever seen. He doesn’t have to be his old dominant self to win four more majors. Although, he did have a pretty successful season last year and finished second in the FedEx Cup.

It still remains a mystery as to when the man known to wear red on Sunday’s will be back. He will be coming off of a back injury, which isn’t exactly the easiest thing to recover from. As a result, I am sure he will never be the same golfer he once was. Heck, he hasn’t been the same golfer he once was since he last won a major — that is obvious.

Tiger doesn’t have to be perfect, though. He still has all of the talent in the world and his mental game will eventually come back. Don’t expect Tiger Woods 2.0, 3.0 or whatever .0 he is on. Just expect a Woods who is hungry to win four more majors.
