Can’t help but wonder now if Woods’ chance of catching Jack Nicklaus’ majors record is crippled, as well. Perhaps irreparably.
The gap is just too wide and the greatest golfer of our generation is showing me nothing that says he’ll be capable of closing it.
Okay, maybe not “nothing,” He’s shown the fire, the spirit and the competitiveness to do it.
But while the heart might be willing, the body (whether the swing or age is the primary culprit) just doesn’t seem capable of following.
Interesting, if Woods does not break the record, will history blame the inevitable effects of age and injuries-or will the self-inflicted wounds of scandal be charged for his falling short?
