Last year he finished in the money in almost every tournament he entered. That's nowhere near washed up.... Yeah after the scandal he basically golfed as a hobby... He no longer entered 20 events a year... rather he golfed about half as many as he normally had. Last year was his first complete year back... And he rocked it..... It wasn't a career year for him or anything... but if you are nearly any other golfer other than Tiger, it would have been a career year.
The guy is not washed up, The guy is hungry, and was playing pretty good. Playing at the level he played at last year he could expect to win a few more majors over his career and can expect to set the all time career major win mark. Anybody who thinks he's washed up hasn't read a newspaper lately. ( 1 year + )..

Rory was the best golfer in the world last year, Tiger was #2.

I don't know where he's ranked, but it's gonna take more than winning non major tournaments to declare he's back. If he goes majorless again, do you think Tiger would consider it a successful year?
need a new sig
But as far as if he's "WASHED UP", the answer is no... Based on Last years performance he's still one of the best golfers in the world and he really wasn't off that pace for very long.
Tiger is the only PGA player ever to win 8 tournaments in three different years... His best year was 2000 where he won 9 tournaments.. or about half of the tournaments he entered...
In 2012 tiger won 3.... so not really the same, but was still good enough to have him finish #2 for PGA earners. #1 Rory McIlroy only won 4 tournaments himself, 1 major.
I think the real difference between 2000 Tiger Woods and 2012 Tiger Woods isn't weather he was a great golfer, one of the best golfers on the PGA.... I think the 2000 Tiger was really one of the best golfers in the history of golf without any real peers in the PGA... It wasn't just that he won tournaments, it was that he was consistently great. 2012 Tiger would win a tournament one week, mostly finish in the top 5, but occasionally finish down around #40.... at a masters... which was unheard of Tiger doing early in his career. Maybe it was a fluke, or maybe this human inconsistancy which we expect from all PGA players is what we must expect from Tiger fro here on out too.

I haven't seen any of these rumors spread in two years...

He's the best player in golf right now and the favorite at Augusta.
If he can hit the fairway with his driver under pressure, he's a shoe in to win a major this year.

I have absolutely no use for most Tiger fans out there. They usually don't understand anything about golf. And I can't stand people that start rooting for a team, golfer, etc for no other reason than they win. It's sickening. Most Yankee fans fall under the same scope.
Well, he'd be considered washed up per Tiger's standards, but still may be a good golfer when compared to the rest of the field. I have to say, winning at Torry Pines is not a good baromator of where he is. He's owned that course in the past, it's a non major and not exactly a ton of competition to guage where he's at. I think you'll get a better idea of where he is by the time Augusta rolls around.

As someone who's logged more rounds before 18 (I actually lived off of the 16th hole of a golf course, thank you thank you) than most of you have probably played in your life, shut the **** up with the TW hate.
It is possible to like TW the golfer and not be a newbie to golf.
It is possible to like TW the golfer and hate TW the person.
Just get over the hate and go back to worshiping Lefty's man tits.

Birds are flying out of water
Underneath the sky
I run up to the rainbow girl
just to pass her by
I'll never have a change of heart
My swan will never sing
I have no heart the swan is gone
And now I wear the wings
