Is Tiger Woods back?

Tiger Woods finished the Open Championship two strokes back from the lead, falling just short of his 15th major victory.

Many feel it's only a matter of time before Woods adds another major to his resume. Still, the rest of the field showed they're up to the task of stopping him and he isn't getting any younger.

Golfers beware: Tiger Woods is back to his old self. We’re talking about one of the greatest golfers ever coming back to the PGA Tour healthier than he’s ever been. He's been striking the ball well and sinking some great putts. He may have fallen short at the Open Championship, but major championships are going to flow.

When he was at his peak, no one could touch Woods. He won the 2008 U.S. Open on one leg, giving him a 14-0 record in major tournaments with a lead heading into the final day. He won’t be the same golfer, but he will still be good enough to win a major.

Age shouldn’t be an issue. Jack Nicklaus won his last major at 46 years old. Raymond Floyd also won a major tournament at 43 years old. Woods is no spring chicken at age 42, but he has plenty of time to win a major when he’s back.

Woods hasn’t won a golf tournament, let alone a major tournament since 2013. Just because Woods was a great golfer nearly a decade ago doesn’t mean he will make a miraculous recovery and be great again.

Golfers won't lay down and die like they did in the past. The competition has evolved since Woods went down. Jordan Spieth has burst onto the scene, and Patrick Reed just secured a green jacket in 2018. Francesco Molinari was paired with Woods in the final round of the Open Championship and ended up winning the tournament—even with Woods breathing down his neck. Woods may have been the king before, but these young guns aren't going to give him an inch just because he's Tiger Woods.

The only way Tiger Woods will ever be back is if he wins a major championship.
