It's the biggest sports news of the week since Monday when he won the U.S. Open on the 91st hole. It was announced Wednesday morning that Tiger Woods will miss the remainder of the season due to the need for additional knee surgeries and the rehab that goes along with that.
Well, here's the thing for the PGA, this is awful news. Let's be honest, the entire nation was captivated by the final two regular and playoff rounds of the U.S. Open because the game's most popular and most recognizable player was in the thick of it. This nation loves a winner because most are front-runners.
Tiger being out will make him a better player down the road he continues to push toward Jack's record. However, the tournaments that are still remaining, including two majors and the Ryder Cup just won't be the same without Woods. People won't be as nearly as interested and ratings will demonstrate that.
It's unfortunate for the game, but for Tiger it's just going to make him that much better because if he won a tournament on one leg, what will he do with two good ones?
Again, only time will tell.
