Tiger May Miss US Open

At his Memorial tournament press conference, Jack Nicklaus let the cat out of the bag:

Q. Given Tiger’s injuries lately, how would you assess now, I know you get asked this all the time, but how would you assess his ability to—

JACK NICKLAUS: I would have no clue. Tiger called me Friday and he was trying to—he said, I tried up until today to see if I’m going to be able to come and play, but I can’t. He said, I’m still hobbling, and he said, I don’t know whether I’m going to make the U.S. Open or not.

Did anyone really think he was going to make his comeback at the world’s toughest tournament? I didn’t.

  1. Did I think he was going to win?  No.  Do I still think he is going to try and go out there and play?  Yes- but who knows what he is going to do.  As I have said earlier on this – he needs to put the US Open to rest, if not the whole season.

    If he is going to push coming back (or even if he was 100% well physically) he shouldn’t be seen until the British.  That is his only chance for a major this year, albeit a small chance.
