Tiger Woods' Chances at Winning 2013 British Open After Slump, Injury

It’s been a month since anyone has seen Tiger Woods play golf. For the sports’ popularity, that ain’t good. Tiger last played at the 2013 U.S. Open, where he winced through a strained left elbow on his way to a tied-for-32nd finish. But now he’s apparently healthy and ready to regain his thrown as the most dominant golfer in the world.

Tiger arrived at Muirfield Golf Club on Sunday and played a practice round with Jason Day and Dustin Johnson that was described as pain-free. That’s good news for Woods considering his next chance at a 15th major victory is this weekend at the 2013 British Open.

Tiger says his elbow is fine and that he’s rearin’ and ready to go, but he’s said that many times throughout his career and then fallen on his face, just like he has in his last two starts before skipping his own AT&T National Tournament with the injury. However, Woods has also won four tournaments this season, so we can still say seemingly for the millionth time this year that he’s primed for his 15th major win.

Tiger’s good attitude and painless practice round are definitely good signs that he’ll win his first major since divorcing Elin Nordegren and pairing with Lindsey Vonn, but no guarantees.
