Nicklaus: Tiger Woods will have a hard time returning to golf


"As Tiger said, he is receiving ongoing professional help, and because of that, he can not attend this year's Quicken Loans National", Rick Singer, CEO of the Tiger Woods Foundation said in a statement. A breathalyzer test showed no sign of alcohol but police video showed Woods struggling to answer questions. While the event is run by Woods's foundation, the former world number one is now receiving professional help on how to manage his medications for back pain and a sleep disorder. "I don't know whether Tiger will play much golf anymore", Nicklaus said, according to the paper.

Woods recently confirmed he was entering a treatment facility to manage his usage of prescription medications for back pain. He was arguably the hottest player on the planet earlier in the year when winning twice in Hawaii and although missing the cut last week in Hartford, he must surely be in calculations this week. Rickie Fowler is the only top 10 player slated to be in town, a far cry from past editions of the tournament.

There is no indication from Woods when or if he will return to play on tour. "He might come back and play".

All of this is sad and not how we thought Woods' career was going to go.

"We all want him to be better".

World No. 4 Rory McIlroy has offered his support to Woods in his latest fightback bid.

He encourage public dialogue in this regard and said there was a need to celebrate diversity. They want the schools to retain their religious ethos.

"It's a tough one", McIlroy said last week. He's OK. He has gone through a rough time the last few years with injuries and being in pain and not being able to sleep. I obviously don't understand it because I haven't been in the middle of it.

"So it's good that he's getting help". Second, this event marks my second anniversary of my first fantasy golf article for Fantasy Alarm and I'll admit, pretty shocked to be still doing it. Thank you to all my loyal readers over these past two years.
