Wie’s two previous victories were at the 2009 Lorena Ochoa Invitational and the 2010 Canadian Women’s Open. And now she adds the 2014 Lotte Championship to that list. The wait was a long one, but it was worth it for Wie and her fans.

And that means that we’ll hear plenty today about the “par-3 jinx.” …
The groupings and tee times for the first two rounds of the 2014 Masters are out. And, as always, there are a few groups that really stand out. Tiger Woods, …
So that rules out kangaroo. But what about those …
The most immediate result of Tiger Woods‘ withdrawal from the 2014 Masters? Ticket brokers are dropping prices for Masters tickets. According to Yahoo Sports’ Dan Wetzel, brokers’ prices for one-day Masters passes fell by up to 20-percent in the first 24 hours following Woods’ announcement of back surgery.
You can bet the folks at CBS Sports are unhappy with this development, too: TV ratings when Woods plays (any tournament) are almost always higher, often significantly so, than when he doesn’t play. Such is the power of Tiger.
But Woods isn’t playing. Instead, he is resting and recuperating following Monday’s back surgery to trim a slipped disc and relieve pressure on a pinched nerve. If Woods’ recovery goes according to plan, he might begin chipping and putting again in as little as three weeks, and Woods said he hopes to be making full swings again by summer. We’ll have to wait and see how well Woods recovers, and we certainly wish him a full and speedy return to golf.
But back problems are tricky. And this is just the latest in a long string of injuries and surgeries for Woods, going back to the 1990s. He’s 38 years old, and his body is beat up. His psyche may be, too.
What happens when Woods returns to golf? Doesn’t it seem like we’re asking that question almost annually the past half-dozen years?
“Half-dozen years” is a good frame of reference, because that’s how long it’s been since Tiger’s last major championship victory. His win at the 2008 U.S. Open was epic, was his 14th win in a major, and is his most recent major.
But will that prove to be Woods’ last major win? We’ve polled a few times during Woods’ recent years without a major on the question of whether he’ll still catch Jack Nicklaus‘ record of 18 major wins. But in the wake of back surgery (and keeping in mind that Woods is closing in on 40, and his full history of injuries), that seems a bit presumptuous.
So we have a simpler question: Will Tiger Woods ever win another major? If your answer is yes, how many do you think he’ll get? Cast your vote in the poll and leave your comments.
