Tiger Woods hasn’t played competitive golf in more than a year, and, at a minimum, he won’t play again until October. However, he’s one of the biggest equipment free agents in golf.

While Tiger Woods hasn’t won a major in nearly six years, he still has many competitive years ahead of him. Missing this year’s Masters is a disappointing setback for Tiger, however, it is the smart choice if it allows him to be healthy for the three remaining major tournaments in 2014. Tiger stated that he will miss several upcoming tournaments as he focuses on his rehabilitation, so it is unclear whether or not he will return in time for the U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 on June 12.

This is the true Tiger Woods effect.

Despite his recent drought in major titles, Woods has continued to excel overall and finished the 2013 season at No. 1 on the money list with five victories. The previous year, Woods finished No. 2 on the money list and won three tournaments. While the majors have eluded him, Tigers Woods remains one of the elite golfers in the world.

The win capped off a stretch of 14 total majors in a 12-year span, as Woods remained ahead of Jack’s pace in his quest to surpass Nicklaus’ 18 total major victories. However, two days after his win, Woods announced that he would undergo knee surgery and would miss the remainder of the 2008 season.
