Report: Tiger Woods' condition has worsened as he can't move well or sit without pain

Business Insider

Scott Davis 11 hrs ago


In December, when we last heard from Tiger Woods, he gave a depressing press conference about the state of his back.

At the time, Tiger said his rehab consisted of walking, he was playing video games to pass the time, and there was "no light at the end of the tunnel."

Now, according to Robert Lusetich, author of "Unplayable: An Inside Account of Tiger's Most Tumultuous Season," Tiger's future to golf seems in jeopardy, as his condition has worsened.

Whatever. I have disdain for the lavish attention for "sports heroes". And golf is not a sport. He got his money, he should be happy with that and just shut up.

He was impressive when he played well.


How does that go? Live hard, die young, and leave a good looking corpse...??

To be fair, that guy was really good in his prime, and his prime lasted for a long time

Tiger Woods ranks No. 26 on our inaugural list of the top 40 richest entrepreneurs under the age of 40. He is the only athlete to make the cut. Here’s a quick look at the reasons why.

Name: Tiger Woods

Net worth: $700 million

Age: 39 (Woods turns 40 on Dec. 30)

Woods has earned $1.35 billion since turning pro in 1996 with barely 10% of the total derived from prize money on the golf course. The bulk of Woods’ fortune was generated from endorsements with the likes of Accenture , AT&T T +0.79%, Buick, Gatorade , Nike NKE +1.45%. All of those blue-chip brands have left Woods, but Nike who has stuck by the 14-time Majors winner and pays him more than $20 million a year. Nike built a $711 million-in-sales golf division on the back of Woods. Woods other current partners include Hero MotoCorp, Kowa, MusclePharm, Rolex and Upper Deck.

In addition to his sponsor haul, Woods has a wildly lucrative pension thanks to the PGA Tour’s generous retirement plan. Woods’ net worth did take a hit with his $100 million divorce in 2010 from Elin Nordegren.
I am not personally concerned with his pain. I got a lot of pain from my work and I have peanuts to show for it. Too bad so sad I say.

He banged a lot of chicks behind his wife's back. I guess Karma has a way of catching up.

I agree with those who say he was amazing to watch. Maybe you have to know what a 3 wood is to understand. I have twenty seven years in the same industry and a bad back to go with it.

...and hasn't done shyt since his personal "in house" physician was arrested smuggling HGH into the country (espn barely touched it) and the older golfers like Nicklaus demanded the PGA drug test.

Not a fan, he was great golfer on his own but was allowed to juice by the PGA in exchange for the billions he brought in with TV revenue and resurrecting the sport to young people. Baseball and the other proffesional sports showed us that any athlete that was doing superhuman things on the athletic field during the late 90's and 2000's was on the juice.

I am so filled with joy when a rich guy overcomes his golf problem.
