I was lucky enough to be born into the Tiger era and watching him absolutely dominate for an entire decade will never be duplicated. Unfortunately, knee surgeries, back surgeries, DUIs and oh yeah the whole affair with a billion women derailed his career. A lot of people that are tapped into golf and even current players thought he might sail off into the sunset and retire. If...
