tiger woods in the TV booth

Imagine this for a moment — especially after his dig at TV commentators in his recent revolutionary TIME interview — Tiger Woods finally retires from competitive golf and accepts a part-time job as an analyst in the booth with NBC or CBS, where audiences can hear him discuss strategy and shots and just his general thoughts during a tournament around 10 times a year.

OK, I know, I know — the chances of that happening are slim. I tweeted about how much I enjoyed listening to Woods talk shop and commentate on his peers in Golf Channel’s booth alongside Roger Maltbie and Terry Gannon on Sunday at the Hero World Challenge, where he plays host as the event benefits his foundation. Someone quickly replied that he couldn’t see Woods making a job as a TV commentator. That’s fair. Then again, I’m certain many would have said the same about Faldo a decade ago. Remember: Sir Nick was dubbed “Nick the Prick,” among other not-so-kind names during his playing days.

Jordan Spieth got off to a fast start in the first round of the Hero World Challenge, the exclusive 18-man invitational hosted by Tiger Woods’ foundation, which is held at the uber-nice Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas. Spieth hit a 6-iron from 175 yards — playing about 10 yards longer because it was into the wind — on the par-3 second and nearly slam-dunked the shot. Yep, he aced it (which leaves him with potentially a costly tab this evening).

Tiger Woods doesn’t have a timetable for when he’ll return to play golf competitively or even for when he can do any type of activity aside from walking. He painted such a sorry, unfortunate picture with his inability to commit to playing in any tournaments in 2016.

Woods, who was speaking as the host of this week’s Hero World Challenge (18-man field money grab that benefits his foundation), is recovering from two microdiscectomy surgeries over an 18-month period, along with another somewhat unexpected “procedure” in the same area of his back at the end of October.
