Tiger Woods, aged 48, is starting to have serious doubts about his future in golf after failing to make the cut at the recent US Open. Since his horrific car accident in February 2021, where he nearly lost his right leg, Woods has competed in seven Majors, with a 47th place finish at the 2022 Masters as his best result. The golfer from California has withdrawn twice and missed the cut three times, the latest being at the US Open in Pinehurst, North Carolina. After scoring 74 in the first round and 73 in the second, Woods struggled in the tournament, finishing seven shots over par and twelve shots behind the leader, Swedish golfer Ludvig Aberg.

Reflecting on his performance, Tiger Woods admitted that he was not at his best. “I hit a lot of good shots that just didn’t quite work out, or I made good putts, then put myself in bad situations. But as I said, it’s probably the best score I could have achieved today. I thought it would be enough to make the cut, but it wasn’t.” With the upcoming British Open scheduled to take place from July 18 to 21 in Scotland, Woods is expected to participate. However, he is much less certain about what comes next. “I only have one tournament left this season. Even if I win The Open, I don’t think I will play in the FedEx Cup playoffs. One more tournament and I’ll come back when I come back… Whether we’re talking about The Open Championship or the US Open, I don’t know. Maybe these are my last, maybe not.”

Tiger Woods, a 15-time Major winner, appears to be facing a similar career ending dilemma as Rafael Nadal. Both men have achieved everything in the sport, are not getting any younger, and their bodies are telling them to stop, but their minds still want to play. The uncertainty surrounding Woods’ future in golf is leaving fans and experts wondering if they will see him on the course again after this season. As one of the greatest golfers of all time, Woods’ potential retirement would mark the end of an era in the sport, but only time will tell what the future holds for this legendary athlete.
