The Good, The Bad And The Ugly Of Tiger's Return

After a nearly 16 month absence – which included two back surgeries – Tiger Woods finally made his return to competitive golf this past weekend at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. While much of the golf world was giddy with excitement as the most dominant golfer in history got back on the course, his performance was not quite “vintage Tiger”. However, there were glimpses of the game that once launched Tiger to superstardom to go along with the reminders that he is, and may never be, quite what he once was. With that being said, we take a look at the good, the bad and the ugly of Tiger’s comeback.

For many years, Canada has been waiting for the next Mike Weir, who won the Masters back in 2003 and became one of the top players in the world for a few years until injuries took their toll.

Some such as David Hearn, Graham DeLaet, Nick Taylor, Brad Fritsch and Adam Hadwin have come forward to make their presences felt as the next great Canadian on the PGA Tour, while amateur Jared du Toit had a good run in the 2016 Canadian Open, but none have been able to capture the imagination and optimism of rookie Mackenzie Hughes.

The other day a friend whom I had not heard from in a long time called me up and asked if I had time to go golfing with him. Immediately, I said yes.

The arrival of fall also brings the arrival of one of the greatest nemeses to golfers everywhere: leaves on the fairway. We have all experienced this scenario. You stripe a perfect drive down the center of the fairway only to arrive at the spot where your ball should sit and realize that it is nowhere to be found. When a golf course is lush and green in summer it is easy to spot the white dot 300 yards down the fairway (okay, maybe a little closer than 300 yards). However, with more and more obstructions covering courses around the country, tee shots are becoming more and more difficult to locate. Luckily for golfers everywhere, there is a solution. For years manufacturers have been making brightly colored golf balls to help golfers follow and locate their shots easier. However, some people think these balls are inferior or are embarrassed to put them into play. Well, it is time to put these ideas to rest. Here are some of the best brightly colored options offered by LostGolfBalls.com.

In his book 99 Stories Of The Game, Wayne Gretzky talked about his passion for the game when he was injured after playing only one pre-season game in the 1992-93 season with the Los Angeles Kings.

Gretzky had some nagging injuries the previous few years, but it was never determined the exact problem. So he was sent to the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic, famous for doing the Tommy John surgeries replacing a ligament in the elbow with a tendon from somewhere else in your body.

He was asked by the doctor at the clinic if his back had ever been checked. Gretzky replied he hadn’t because he thought the recurring problem was related to a broken rib. The doctor told him he had a herniated thoracic disk.

The end was coming and everyone knew it because Se Ri Pak said at the start of this season that this would be the final year of her glorious career, but it was still somewhat sad to see her retire from the game.

At the age of 38 and with the game trending more and more to players in their teens or early 20s, Pak knew it was time to put away the competitive clubs. She announced earlier in the year that 2016 would be her final season as a full-time player.
