Is he washed up? I'd have to say no because he's last several performances, he's STUNK.
"Washed up" to me indicates that a guy can never be effective again outside of a few fluke situations.
Tom Watson was more or less washed up from the late 80s on (and that was far more inexplicable).
I think Tiger can get it back and be a top five golfer for quite a long time. The question is, does he really want to? Does he want to change his game to match his current physical limitations and does he have the desire to become more of a grinder?

Jack Nicklaus had a 3 year slump between age 27 to 30 when he didn't win a single major. Then he won 11 more majors after he turned 30, including five more after age 35, which is Tiger's age now. To say that Tiger Woods is washed up at age 35 is waaay premature.
He is almost psychoticly competitive. That, more than money, drives him. He's not done.

The issue - as I see it - is his schedule. He's not going to get back in shape and he is not going to get his swing back playing 10 or 15 tournaments a year. His swing is a mess and he's pretty much done until April now. I think he needs to play a bunch of consecutive weeks next year, but I don't think he wants to play the House of Pancakes Open in Omaha and the like.
I agree with LBC, he isn't playing enough golf right now, he needs to set his ego aside and play in the "house of Pancakes" lol tourneys.

This year Tiger has finished in the top 10, r out of 10 tournaments, two of those were top 5 finishes, he is far from being "washed up".

I definitely think Woods can launch a comeback. It's just a matter of getting one's head "straight." I find it very refreshing that the public has FINALLY seen how cold and arrogant Woods truly is....and that he's been a complete me-me-me jerk for well over a decade.
annnnndd resurrection <--Borrowed that line from MissU28...
I know Tiger Woods is playing better, but if he can't even win an 18-man event on home turf he's still got a country mile to go.
