Anyone who has ever suffered any back problems, knows it can come and go at any time. Such must be the case of Tiger Woods. On Saturday, when he shot a neat little round of 6-under par 66, he showed no signs of any back problems. When asked following his round, he said the back felt fine.
Then on Sunday, as Woods started to choke, his used every opportunity to show the television cameras he was in pain. Lets face it, this isn’t the Tiger of old, and as a matter of fact he is acting old. As much as Woods works out, you would think he would have a conditioning program specifically to target his back.
Woods can afford the finest trainers and doctors money can buy. His golf game in final rounds isn’t what it used to be and our Clifford, made that point perfectly clear following Tigers round of 66 on Saturday. Here is what Clifford had to say;
YEAH. MARK MY WORDS, TIGER SHOT HIS LOAD TODAY AND I PREDICT THAT TOMORROW HE’LL REVERT BACK TO THE TIGER WE’VE ALL BEEN GRIEVING OVER (AND CURSING AT) EVER SINCE HE FUCKED UP HIS LIFE AND HIS GAME PRIOR TO 2009. HE WILL NOT SEAL THE DEAL TOMORROW—YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK…BUT AS LONG AS HE AQUITS HIMSELF WELL IT CAN ONLY BUOY HIS CONFIDENCE (AND ENHANCE HIS CHANCES) FOR WINNING THE MASTERS NEXT MONTH (NOT THAT I’M CONVINCED HE’LL DO THAT EITHER…
Clifford was right on the money with his analysis of Tiger. Woods didn’t play well at all on Sunday, and his back was killing him. Gee, I wonder what he would have said had he won?
