Brennan: No reason to believe Tiger Woods can win Open

Post By RelatedRelated Post

The man in question hasn’t won a golf tournament in nearly a year. He has had a terrible 2014 season by his standards. He has been injured. He had back surgery March 31 and was gone for almost three months. When he came back three weeks ago, he missed the cut by four strokes. He hasn’t played since.

So of course almost everyone is wondering if Tiger Woods can win the British Open, which begins Thursday at Royal Liverpool Golf Club.

Are we all just being ridiculous? Because Tiger used to win all the time, do we simply go back to our earlier-21st century selves and find that comfortable default position that says as long as Tiger is playing, he’s always the favorite?

Or, are we afraid? Afraid to say for the record that Woods, now closer to 39 than 38, with a body worn down by all sorts of injuries, might never win another major.
