Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 169
W HILE golf is renowned as a relatively gentle sport that most people can play long into their later years, fate has a nasty habit of intervening in the careers of many PGA Tour players. Take Tiger Woods, for example. Long considered a near certainty to claim Jack Nicklaus’ record for the most major victories in history, injuries and swing troubles have conspired to render the greatest golfer of our time a Grade A battler. In light of his second back surgery in 18 months, will Woods ever scale those same heights again? It looks unlikely, but if you ask any of the men at the centre of our nine injury comeback stories, you should never say never. OTG 5 comebacks INSPIRING J.B. HOLMES BRAIN SURGERY IN OUR books there’s no such thing as minor brain surgery, but J.B. Holmes was astoundingly casual when faced with the prospect of surgeons opening up his head in 2011. Holmes said the surgery to fix a structural defect in his skull that affected his balance was “low risk”, but you just never know. Holmes played the following season with little success, then managed just five PGA Tour events in 2013 after breaking his ankle, and made just one cut. But the veteran bounced back in 2014, winning the Wells Fargo Championship before producing the best year of his career in 2015, winning the Houston Open, recording seven top 10s and two runner-up finishes and pocketing more than $4 million in prizemoney.
