‘Reminds Me of Michael Jordan’: Golf World Conflicted Over Tiger Woods’ Speculative Schedule for 2023

Published 11/26/2022, 6:23 AM EST

This year, we hardly saw Tiger Woods on the golf course due to his near-fatal accident in February 2021. But the former number-one golfer is ready to make 2023 a year to remember. The golfer will be very busy from December 2022 to next year. Woods had an accident last year and almost lost his right leg. The doctors had to put in a rod to stabilize the multiple fractures.

He underwent therapy and was back on the course at Augusta for the Masters 2022. However, he did not win, but fans appreciated his remarkable recovery. And since his health is getting better, he will be appearing in more matches from now on. Earlier, he needed a cart to move around the golf course. But he feels better after working as a caddie for his son at Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship. Now he does not need a cart to move around and is strong enough to walk. Therefore, the coming days will be magical for all Woods fans.

How did fans react to the new schedule of Tiger Woods?

The Twitter handle of TWLEGION shared the speculated list of events that will feature Tiger Woods. After mentioning the name of the events, they said that next year could be a different year for the legendary golfer. They wrote.“And yes, barring good health, I see these events. Even the US Open. He signed up last year, then decided not to play. I think 23 could be different.”

Some fans felt that the golfer’s schedule prediction from December to 2023 reminded them of NBA star, Michael Jordan. However, some fans believe that if Woods finds even 3-4 days healthy, he will return home with the trophy. It divided the golf world into two groups; some had faith in the spark of Woods, whereas some felt the victory time for the 15-times major championship winner was over.

They felt “His competitive playing career is over.” But we saw some fans motivating him and said, “Make it happen.” These comments reflect how the accidents have hampered his golfing career. However, in the coming days, the bar is set high, and only time will tell if the legendary golfer will be back with a spark or will lose again and prove his haters right. Let’s see what his fans have to say about the schedule.

Which upcoming matches are worth looking forward to in December?

Woods only played nine rounds this year, but he announced that he would be playing at the Hero World Challenge. The golfer hosts this event each year, but this time, he will also feature as a player in the Bahamas from December 1-4, 2022. The next event you can look forward to is the next edition of the iconic ‘The Match.’
