Tiger Woods career is over after an automobile crash that resulted in open fractures to the upper and lower sections of his right leg along with significant trauma to his ankle.
Woods’ indomitable spirit and tremendous work ethic are responsible for 82 PGA tour victories and 15 Major championships, but there’s no way that a 45-year-old golfer who’s had five back surgeries and multiple knee surgeries can return to the PGA tour. The celebrated golfer will be lucky if he can return to Augusta in five years to play a ceremonial round of golf.
An adoring press has universally characterized Tiger’s latest vehicular escapade as an “accident.” If a boulder rolls down a hill and crushes your car that’s an accident. If a pothole causes your vehicle to roll over that’s an accident. But when you speed on a road notorious for its hairpin turns, and you total your automobile, that’s not an accident. It’s negligence, recklessness, and stupidity.
Disgraced and diminished former President Donald Trump wished his occasional golf partner Tiger Woods a speedy recovery, predicting, “he will be back.”
In May 2019, just weeks after winning his fifth Master’s title, Trump awarded Woods the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
In a recent interview Trump said:
“When Tiger is in contention, which is often, the ratings are double and triple. It’s very few people that can cause that kind of phenomena.”
Trump admires Tiger’s celebrity and penchant for getting high ratings whenever he’s in a golf tournament, and Tiger admires Trump’s power, influence, and wealth. Two peas in a pod.
There won’t be another miraculous Tiger comeback. His debilitating injury has ended his hall of fame career. There won’t be a Trump comeback, his incapacitating moral failings and fascist tendencies have ended his political career.
