How many more majors can Tiger win?
00:17
I feel like I been asking that question, trying to answer
00:19
that question since that day, April the 13th 1997,
00:23
when he won his first.
00:25
Who knows, look he's still young enough.
00:27
If he gets his health back,
00:28
if he gets his full confidence back,
00:31
I'm not gonna say that's it, never happening,
00:34
because it could happen.
00:36
Golf is hardest sport in the world to predict.
00:38
Even Tiger in his prime,
00:39
that's the closest thing we've ever had to a deadlock cinch,
00:42
but it was still even hard back then.
00:44
Because I can start rattling off for every Bubba you get me,
00:46
I can fire back Jordan.
00:48
And you can say Rory and I can say Jason,
00:50
and you say Ricky and I say Dustin,
00:52
and it's a cycle that goes a hundred different ways,
00:55
and how do we really know that that week,
00:57
who's gonna have a hot hand
00:58
and who's gonna wake up on Thursday morning
01:00
and their hands feel like a sense of calmness
01:04
and the mind's in the right place, the stars are aligned,
01:08
and it's their week.
01:13
Each and every guy you talk to who plays golf,
01:15
he'll tell you that he's gonna win again.
01:17
They have so much respect for him not only as a player,
01:20
but for what he's done for the game,
01:22
and what he's brought to the table.
01:23
We have all spent 20 years underestimating Tiger Woods,
01:26
so I wouldn't put it past him.
01:29
His game is good enough to win the Masters.
01:31
His mind is obviously good enough to win the Masters,
01:32
if he gets his ducks in a row,
01:35
and he gets his injuries to participate,
01:36
and go away for a while, if he can get that kinda head
01:40
in the right place, I think he can win some,
01:42
but at this point it looks difficult for him.
01:46
These guys all have it.
01:47
Everybody has that same game, they're all pros.
01:49
It's when they go real low that everybody's noticing
01:51
what they're doing.
01:52
I mean you can't count him out--
01:53
[Johnny] I wouldn't.
01:54
He's the best golfer to ever play the game.
01:55
[Johnny] I always root for Tiger.
01:56
I wanna see him on the leaderboard,
01:58
I wanna see the red shirt on Sunday,
01:59
I love seeing greatness, you know,
02:01
I love seeing what Steph Curry and the Warriors are doing.
02:04
I like people breaking records, you know.
02:05
I think records are meant to be broken.
02:07
I'd like to see him break the record.
02:08
In this day and age, it's so much more competitive,
02:10
there's so many more great golfers out there.
02:12
Just gotta dig a little bit deeper.
02:13
I definitely think he has a shot.
02:15
I don't know how he is health-wise, with his back,
02:17
you just don't know.
02:18
I definitely hope he is in contention, and battles it out
02:21
in some more majors because not only is it good for the game
02:24
of golf, but I would like to play against Tiger a little bit
02:26
more since I really haven't had many experiences with him.
02:30
I think he's at least gonna win one more.
02:33
There's so many great players right now that have his tools.
02:37
He was one of the only ones who had his tools in the day.
02:41
He has given these young players a road map
02:44
on how to build their game, and mental side as well.
02:50
He still has tools, he still has that mental side,
02:54
and I think he can do great things.
02:56
I'm unbelievable fan of Tiger Woods, you know,
02:58
what he's done for the game, you know,
03:00
where he's taken this tour and the visibility
03:01
and the popularity of these games.
03:02
I just hope he can come back and compete
03:04
at the highest level, and I just see wanna him healthy.
03:06
It's been a couple years, he's been battling two injuries,
03:08
if he's able to win another Masters,
03:10
that'll be great for the game,
03:11
but you know I don't really put any expectations,
03:14
I just wanna see him go out there and compete,
03:15
and be able to smile and enjoy the game of golf.
