Tiger Woods ended the Masters tied for 32nd after barely making the cut, and many are wondering whether he'll ever win another major tournament in his career. He came on strong in the final round, notching five birdies and an eagle. Many feel it's only a matter of time before he adds another major to his resume. Still, the rest of the field showed they're up to the task of stopping him and he isn't getting any younger. What do you think? 🏌

If Woods says he hasn’t felt this good in years, the rest of the PGA should be scared. We’re talking about one of the greatest golfers ever coming back to the PGA Tour healthier than he’s ever been. He's been striking the ball well and sinking some great putts. Major championships are going to flow.

When he was at his peak, no one could touch Woods. He won the 2008 U.S. Open on one leg, giving him a 14-0 record in major tournaments with a lead heading into the final day. He won’t be the same golfer, but he will still be good enough to win a major.

Age shouldn’t be an issue. Jack Nicklaus won his last major at 46 years old. Raymond Floyd also won a major tournament at 43 years old. Woods is no spring chicken at 42, but he has plenty of time to win a major when he’s back.

Woods was done before the surgery and he was done after the surgery. He hasn’t won a golf tournament, let alone a major tournament since 2013. Just because Woods was a great golfer nearly a decade ago doesn’t mean he will make a miraculous recovery and be great again.

Vertebrae fusions are no joke. Woods might feel good, but doesn’t mean he will retain the flexibility needed in his back to play pain-free or generate the same amount of power. And age doesn’t help the body recover any quicker.

Golfers won't lay down and die, either. The competition has evolved since Woods went down. Jordan Spieth has burst onto the scene, and Patrick Reed just secured a green jacket in 2018. Woods may have been the king before, but these young guns aren't going to give him an inch just because he's Tiger Woods.

Woods might be able to play golf, but his history of injuries doesn’t tell an optimistic tale of his chances to win another major. Even before the surgery, Woods’ results left a lot to be desired. Unless that surgery was performed in the Fountain of Youth, he will never win another major tournament.
