|Wood's during the 2008 U.S. Open|
Even with Tiger not being the best golfer in the world anymore he still is the heart and soul of the golf world and helps the PGA thrive. The viewership of events that Tiger isn't playing in are down almost 25% and there are less sponsors sponsoring the tournaments that he passes up with his injuries. He can do more just being on the course then any other player ever could.
If Tiger wants to come back from his injury and to succeed for the next 10-15 years he will need to change his swing dramatically. Sports Science did a clip about Tiger and how much pressure he puts on that left leg every time he swings, which if he continues his knee wont last and his next injury may be career threatening. Tiger still has his golf game with him but I feel as though he has lost his mental strength that he had for so many years. He'd go into the final round leading by 2 and win by 6 because he had that mental toughness and got into other players head. I feel this toughness was broken in the final round of the 2009 PGA Championship. Y.E. Yang was the first person to overcome a Tiger Woods lead after 54 holes and I felt like Yang was the one getting in Tiger's head. Since that round Tiger has yet to get that toughness back.
Tiger's game will need to be altered from power to finesse, ball striking, and elite putting and when he makes that adjustment in his golf game I believe that he will once again become the best player in the world. I feel as though Tiger will not only win another major but will go down in history as a winner of at least 19 majors.
