Tiger should hang up his spikes, according to voters


As the final round of this year’s Open draws to a close, one golfer in particular will be rueing another lost opportunity at a major championship.

Three-time winner Tiger Woods didn’t even make the cut at St. Andrews after carding +7 following the opening two rounds, a source of yet more anguish for a fallen legend of the game.

That led us to ask you the question: is it now time for the 39-year-old to retire?

And the answer you’ve given is emphatic.

67 per cent of you think that Tiger should hang up his spikes with 33 per cent of readers going the other way.

Ladbrokes are currently 6/1 for Woods to call it a day in 2015 while it’s 4/1 that the former world number one fails to add to his haul of 14 major victories.


Tiger’s failure to avoid the cut in Fife follows his inability to escape the same fate in the US Open at Chambers Bay.

Now ranked 241 it’s becoming increasingly difficult to believe that we’ll see anything near the player who dominated golf throughout the late nineties and noughties.

And given his current decline it may be wise to take the current price on a Tiger retirement this year before it plummets even further.
