Tiger Woods may never again dominate golf: Ernie ElsMarch 3rd, 2009 - 5:37 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 3 (ANI): Ernie Els reckons that Tiger Woods might never again dominate golf as he did before his latest injury.
Woods returned last week after an eight-month lay-off at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona.
Tim Clark knocked him out in the second round and Els believes his knee may continue to hamper him.
Former world No.1 Els underwent similar surgery for a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in 2005, The Sun reported.
My take is that Tiger will feel it. Its only normal. I dont care how good your rehab was, youre going to feel it every now and again in your swing, especially in cold weather, Els said.
My knee was still swollen when I came back and it took another six months for it really to start feeling back to normal, he added.
The South African has already tipped Northern Irelands Rory McIlroy, 19, to become a future world No.1.
And Spains Sergio Garcia could overtake Woods in the rankings within a fortnight if he wins this weeks Honda Classic in Florida and finishes third or better next week at Doral. (ANI)
