Tiger Woods: "I'll be ready for the Masters"
Tiger Woods says he expects it will be two full years before his injured ligament is fully healed, but also says he thinks he’ll be ready for the Masters next year, though not at full speed, obviously.
“I’ll have six months off from surgery,” Woods told ESPN. “That puts me into January. And another four months puts me pretty much at 10 months. That’s a long time. I figure I can come back after 10 months.”
Woods is basing his comments partly on how long it takes other athletes to come back from such injuries.
“Generally, it’s six to nine months when football players are able to come back and compete and play. And if they can do it at that level, I hope I can do it in golf.”
Woods said he is being cautious with his injury, and following doctor’s orders.
I’ve said before I think Woods’ chase of Jack Nickalus’ 18 wins in the majors is over, and I still believe that. Woods admitted he will have to tinker with his swing. Two full years before his injury is healed – PLUS tinkering with his swing.
Nicklaus’ record is safe for the foreseeable future.

Actually, though, as I said last time, it's safe because of the unrest we're going to experience during the next eight years. Heck, in 2012 Tigger could be hunkered down on his yacht in the middle of the Atlantic trying to dodge nuclear fallout. And you might really need that hairpiece.
No one can say what will happen in the future, post-Woods. I'm just not saying it will NEVER be broken. Someone will come along some day to break it.
I still think the idea that he won't have the capacity to win numerous majors is untenable. His work ethic and what he possesses between his ears won't change. Again, Nicklaus contended for the Masters at age 58 while limping around on a bad hip. And he and Woods are cut from the same stone; champions like them are always able to apply themselves and find a way to win.
Tiger cannot win four more majors,
when he won one with a broken leg
I guarantee you Jack's record
will be gone earliest 2010 latest
Winning is about mental and no
one can match a written off Tiger
Please dont forget Torrey Pines
What has happened is that rather
that 24-27 majors, he will be in
the 19-24 major range
