Why Might Tiger Woods Retire in 2024?

There is no question Tiger Woods has had a career most professional golfers can only dream about. 

The 48-year-old has dominated the sport since turning professional in 1997 and has held many golf records throughout the decades.

For instance, he has received the PGA Player of the Year award a record-breaking 11 times and is one of two golfers to earn a career Grand Slam three times. 

Plus, he received the Bryon Nelson Award for achieving the lowest adjusted scoring average not once, not twice, but eight times.

Despite enjoying much success, personal setbacks and injuries have derailed his professional career. 

For example, he experienced a very public divorce between 2009 and 2010 and was forced to undergo four back surgeries from 2014 to 2017 due to injuries.

Unfortunately, the surgeries impacted Woods’ career, as he won only one tournament from 2005 to 2008 and even dropped off the world’s top 1,000 golfers list.

Tiger Woods proved his career was far from over, as he overcame the injuries to win the Tour Championship in 2018 and the 2019 Masters, the latter being his first Masters in 11 years.

However, the world-famous golfer was forced to take another career hiatus, as he was hospitalized following a single-car collision on February 23, 2021.

Woods underwent emergency surgery to repair fractures to his right leg and a shattered ankle.

Months later, he appeared to be preparing the sport for his retirement, suggesting to Golf Digest that his full-time professional career was over, but he would play “a few events per year.”

However, to the delight of golf fans everywhere, he returned to the sport, participating in the PGA Tour at the 2022 Masters, finishing in 47th place at 13 over par.

While Woods has proven he is not out of the sport yet, many people believe Woods should have retired after his car crash.

Woods’ former rival Colin Montgomerie recently commented, “I just wish Tiger had gone after he waved on that Swilken bridge at St Andrews a couple of years ago. He has kept going, he thinks he can do it, but it is quite obvious now, physically and mentally, that he can’t.

“He says he is going to play the PGA next month. We wish him well. Of course we do. He has been our sport really for the last 15-20 years and congratulations to him. But there is a time to go. There is a right time to go and there is a wrong time and I think he is delaying it a little bit long now.”

Unfortunately, Woods proved Montgomerie might be right during the 2024 PGA Championship. Despite enjoying an almost effortless one-under-par for 16 holes on one day, he missed the cut after a tough second round, which could potentially signal the end of his professional career.
