The third vital contest of a year has arrived, and once again, a world’s many famous golfer is not a partial of a field. Tiger Woods won’t attend in a 2016 British Open, and his contingent lapse stays a mystery.
It’s been scarcely a year given Woods final played rival golf, posting a top-10 finish during a Wyndham Championship in Aug of 2015. He underwent behind medicine a month later, and has been given operative on creation his approach behind to a PGA Tour.
“Well, I’m playing. we only need some-more time,” Woods told a CBS golf promote crew in late June. “I still need to get stronger, need to redeem faster and that’s only unfortunately going to take time, that I’m not a really studious chairman when it comes to that as we know over a years. Pushing by some of my injuries, pulling by some of my rehabs, I’ve come behind and I’ve won. I’ve won vital championships doing it that approach though this one’s different. This one I’m older, it takes a small longer to redeem and to heal, and I’m going to do it right so we don’t have another surgery.”
Before he underwent medicine final year, Woods wasn’t rival in a sport’s biggest tournament. Seeking an fugitive 15th vital championship, he unsuccessful to make a cut during a U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship, following a 17th-place finish during a 2015 Masters.
But while Woods maintains that he will be back, not everybody is as confident.
“Physically, we don’t consider he is (in) good figure unfortunately. If we watched that graduation he did for his contest recently when he walked onto a tee you’d see that,” three-time British Open leader Nick Faldo said, via the Mirror.
“His behind is fundamentally sealed up. He pronounced he has had 3 surgeries on it and he’s only not as stretchable as we need to be for golf so we consider unfortunately he’s not looking good to even make a quip as a golfer. We shall see.”
Woods hasn’t won a contest in scarcely 3 years, and his final vital feat came during a 2008 U.S. Open when he was 32 years old. He hasn’t won a British Open given 2006.
