The Masters 2021: The Golf World Will Miss Tiger Woods at This Years Prestigious Event

SHARE:

Tiger Woods is a five-time Masters Champion who won the event back in 2019.  This year, Woods will miss the prestigious event at Augusta National Golf Club as he recovers from injuries from a car accident. 


The 45-year-old Woods was in a terrible car wreck back on Feb. 23, in Los Angeles where he suffered serious leg injuries.  The Masters without Woods is just not the same as with him competing in the event. 


Two years ago, Woods added to his Hall of Fame resume by claiming his fifth green jacket.  Golf enthusiasts were treated to one of the most emotional finishes in the tournament history after Woods came from behind to claim the victory.

Woods improbable comeback might be one of the greatest comebacks in sports history.  The former Stanford great had to rebuild his body after fusion surgery on his back, which subsequently he had to rebuild his swing. 


From the back surgeries to the Cathedral Pines of Augusta, Woods improbable comeback in 2019 trailing Francesco Molinari was something straight out of Hollywood. 


Vintage Tiger was on display from birdies to almost holing out an ace on No. 15 hole, he was electric.  It was must see television for golf's biggest event. 


The chants of “Tiger, Tiger” rained down from the on looking crowd following his putt he tapped in the hole to the win.  Woods’ fifth Masters title moved him past the great Arnold Palmer and one behind Jack Nicklaus for the most green jackets in history. 


From an early age, Woods was groomed to become a golfer.  He was destined for greatness.  Back in 1996 he changed the sport of golf forever.  He had memorable victories from the late 1990’s to the early 2000’s that brought people from all over the sports world to the game. 


This year, Woods not playing Augusta is unfortunate for the game of golf, fans and Woods.  Justin Thomas opened up on Woods missing the Masters this week, "Playing the practice rounds with him for sure," Thomas said of what he missed most about Woods being at Augusta. 


"I went over and saw him a couple times last week and tried to go over a couple times during the week whenever I'm home and see him.  We texted Friday morning, and he said it's kind of starting to set in.  He's bummed he's not here playing practice rounds with us, and we hate it, too,” said Thomas. 


It’s unknown as to what his serious leg injuries will hold for his attempt to golf again.  The most important thing is for Woods to live as close to normal and healthy life again. 


Two years ago, we were delighted with his return to glory.  Following his iconic putt to win the 2019 Masters, Woods would embrace his son Charlie similar to the embrace he and his father had following his Masters win in 1997.

“I never thought we’d see anything that could rival the hug with his father in 1997,” Nantz said, “but we just did.  “That will be the greatest scene in golf forever, Jim Nantz,” Nick Faldo replied.  “That hug with his children, if that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye if you’re a parent, you’re not human,” Nantz said. 


However this week at Augusta, the sport will deeply miss the fist pump in the air as Woods nails a putt.  Our televisions will miss the roar of the crowds as Woods would tee off.  We’ll miss the potential of him earning a record tying sixth green jacket. 


The golf legend has had such a deep impact on the sport and beyond.  Golf fans will be forever grateful for what he’s done and hope one day he can swing the sticks one more time.  This years Masters will be missing the golf icon but the golfers competing will do their best to honor the sports greatest athlete.
