American professional golfer Tiger Woods


Legendary golfer believes Woods’ life problems are bigger than golf’


CALIFORNIA – Golf legend Jack Nicklaus believes that Tiger Woods faces a rough road ahead if he is to return to the sport.

Nicklaus, 77, who is considered the greatest golfer of all time by winning 18 major tournaments, told USA Today on Monday that Woods’ “life problems are bigger than his golf issues.”

Woods was arrested for DUI in Jupiter, Florida last May and is due to undergo yet another surgery to resolve his back problem that has bothered him for sometime. His back ailment had prompted him to withdraw from the Dubai Golf Desert Classic early this year.

Woods was found by policemen asleep on the wheel of his car and Woods blamed what happened to “adverse reaction” to medications he is taking for back pain and sleep loss. Woods has sought professional help for his problem with using the medications.

Nicklaus believes that Woods “will have a very hard time” going back to professional golf, adding “I don’t know whether Tiger will play much golf anymore.”

“Whether he plays golf or not, I think he’s got an awful lot to offer the youth of the country and the game itself. Tiger’s a good kid, he cares about people, and we’ll just see what happens,” Nicklaus said. GAC/Expat Media
