Tiger Woods’ injuries over the years have cost him heavily. Recently, he is out of action as he recovers from a devastating solo car crash from February. And while he is in the process of making a comeback, his hard work from the previous seasons is slowly crumbling down, yet again. This week, he continued falling down the rankings and fell to a new low of 403.

However, this is not the first time that Woods has fallen back this far. Plagued by a series of injuries in 2015, this is when he first fell off the charts. Slowly and steadily, he dropped down, and soon; he was out of the top 100, for the first time since his career took off in 1996.

Nevertheless, this was not the biggest upset for the then 14-time major winner. In 2017, successive injuries caused him to drop outside the top-1000 for the first time in his illustrious career. And if all continues the same, then we might be nearing it again.

Following his accident, the 15-time major winner underwent multiple surgeries, though he has made ‘remarkable recovery’. And while there has been speculation about his comeback, there is no official word from the man himself.

He was last sighted during a junior tournament in Florida, where he was supporting his son Charlie. Even then, he was sporting a knee brace, suggesting still ongoing recovery and precaution.

However, if anyone can do it, it’s Woods. He’s done it in the past and he has enough motivation, considering the lot of records that he hasn’t taken over yet. What do you think?
