Former European Ryder Cup captain Bernard Gallacher has questioned Tiger Woods’s golfing desire and believes the 14-times major winner could quit unless he quickly reverses his alarming slide down the rankings.
Woods is without a victory for almost two years and has slumped from first to 49th in the world in just 10 months while trying to rebuild his golf swing and private life following the break-up of his marriage.
The 35-year-old American failed to qualify for the PGA Tour’s money-spinning FedExCup playoffs and is not due to compete again until next month’s Frys.com Open in California, a U.S. Fall Series tournament.
“I can see a possibility of Tiger packing it in,” Gallacher told Reuters in an interview. “I can see him getting to the point where he is fed up.
“If he doesn’t feel like he can win majors any more then he might just pack it in and concentrate on his foundation and try to redeem himself to the public by doing good work for his foundation.
“If he is outside the top 50 and doesn’t qualify for World Golf Championship (WGC) events and the FedExCup he might say, ‘I’m hitting my head up against the wall and might not bother’,” added Gallacher.
Can you believe the demise of Tiger Woods is based pretty much off of his cheating scandal?
