Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best Back To Basics -

Tiger Woods told Golf Di­gest’s Jaime Diaz in 2005 that he has had a bad left knee since child­hood. “It’s be­cause of the stuff I did as a kid,” Woods said. “Wip­ing out on skate­boards, crash­ing on dirt bikes, jump­ing off things. I banged it up pretty bad.” Af­ter Woods’ surgery to re­pair his ACL and car­ti­lage fol­low­ing his 14th pro­fes­sional ma­jor ti­tle, the 2008 US Open at Tor­rey Pines, Golf Di­gest sur­veyed 21 PGA Tour play­ers to pre­dict his fu­ture: 81 per­cent said, “Even­tu­ally he’ll be the same old Tiger”; 14 per­cent said he would be “bet­ter than ever”; 5 per­cent said, “His best is prob­a­bly be­hind him.” Woods’ key in­juries are de­tailed here.
