Tiger Woods has won one tournament since returning to golf after his well publicized sex scandal. Along the way he was withdrawn from tournaments, missed a cut, and melted down in front of the world at the Masters.
But despite all of Tiger’s struggles, he still believes that he still has some winning days ahead of him. In fact, he believes that he could have winning days well into his 50s. He said as much in an interview with 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C..
Looking down the road, do you think you can keep winning tournaments into your 50s?:
“Absolutely, 100 percent agree with that. It just has to be on the right golf course. It can’t be, at that age — well, by the time I’m at that age, it’ll be some golf courses over 8,000 yards. It’s probably not going to be at one of those; it’s probably going to be at a shorter golf course like you’d find at a British Open. Tom [Watson], at Turnberry, it was like the perfect Open. It was howling, it was a golf course he had won on and knew how to play and it was playing very quick. … You can certainly see a certain player playing into their 50s and being successful on a certain venue. You can’t do it on all venues, there’s no doubt. Some ballparks are just too big.”
Slow down there, Tiger. We need you to get back to winning consistently in your 30s before we can begin to believe that you can win in your 50s.
