Yes, people said he was done at the end of 2011 and early 2012 when his struggles were mighty. He would never win again. Never be dominant again. But starting in the summer of 2012 he won 8 times in 15 months, and reached the most dominant #1 position in the WGR in entire 2010's.Except that Tiger is actually no where near the leaderboard. I'll be so glad to see ho-boy fade into the background - it will be sooner than most think.
He got hurt again 2014 -- and people said he was done. He came back with some solid finishes in 2016. And got hurt again... people said he was done. He would never win again. He would never win another major. And then he had 2 great major finishes in 2018... won the tour championship in 2018... won a major in 2019.
People also forget that he won at the end of 2019 and was the best player at the 2019 president's Cup -- less than 10 months ago.
But yes he is done again and it will happen soon. Maybe you will be right this time, at this age and with injuries it could always be it-- if you say it every year eventually you will get it right.
