I guess the question of whether Tiger would win another major or two this year has been answered.  According to a release on Woods' website, the world's best golfer will miss the rest of the 2008 season because of knee surgery.Is a torn ligament and stress fractures the result of his rushing back to play (and eventually win) the US Open?  The ligament damage stretches back almost 10 months, the fractures just two months.According to the story on CNN.com, doctors are optimistic that a full recovery will be made from the knee surgery.  The stress fractures, they said, would heal in time on their own.  As someone who had his college track career cut short by stress fractures, I know that those kind of injuries aren't guaranteed to heal and not come back.  Let's hope we see Tiger at 100% for 2009. ...

I'll be the first to admit that I didn't think Tiger Woods would win the US Open.  I believed he would likely make the cut, but I never would have thought that he'd win it.

Could I have been more wrong?

The world's greatest golfer proved again that he has another set of gears that no one else does.  It's something all the great athletes have and Tiger proved that no one else in the world can touch him.  Although, Rocco Mediate gave him a good run for his money.

What's next?  Will Tiger tame the British Open again and finish off the season with a win at the PGA Championship?  If he can hang tough on a sore knee and play 91 holes to win the US Open, I don't think it's out of the question that he could win at least one out of the next two majors.

As for the rest of the field.  Good luck next time.

Pairings for this year's US Open have been announced and the USGA has taken the unprecedented step of grouping the top 12 players in the world together in threesomes.  Should be entertaining.

Golf Writer

In addition to owning Northwest Golf Adventures, I've been writing golf and travel articles since 2000. My main focus has always been golf in the Pacific Northwest, but I've had stories appear in association magazines across the country, several national publications and on radio and television. I'm always looking for great stories to write about!
