• Tiger Woods 'may not come back', says David Feherty
• "He is too stubborn... to just give it up," added the Irishman
• Woods still unsure when he'll return to PGA Tour action


Legendary golf commentator David Feherty believes Tiger Woods’ career could be over – but the 14-time major winner is too stubborn to admit it.

There was much talk about Woods’ return to PGA Tour action being imminent a few weeks ago, with reports that he was ‘hitting driver’ at the Masters before video emerged of him striking 300-yard tee shots at a Junior event in South Carolina on April 21.

However, last week, Tiger Woods dunked three consecutive balls in the water during a media day for the Quicken Loans National, a moment that was captured on live TV and alerted the world that the 40-year-old was far from ready to return to the professional scene.

And speaking to Irish Golf Desk, Feherty thinks that Woods – who registered for next month’s US Open at Oakmont – may not come back at all.

“I am not sure that Tiger will come back because it is a nerve in his back,” said Feherty. “It’s not muscular or skeletal. It’s not something you can deal with in a physical way.

“He is in phenomenal shape - just ripped as usual. But he is not able to make a full pass at it. I saw him a few weeks ago in Houston and he hadn’t played in five months and he hit some good shots and some awful skanky looking things.

“I think he has a feeling that if he doesn’t make it back this time, he might be done from a physical standpoint. But he is too stubborn and too good and too physically gifted to be able to just give it up. He loves it too much.

“I don’t think he needs to do this. He wants to do this. He really, really does. But I am not sure that he can. I am not sure he is in any way clear on whether he can either.”
