Ernie Els Said Tiger Should Chill With Injury
If there is someone to consult on the Tiger Woods injury it is most certainly Ernie Els.
The Big Easy had a similar knee injury and said he thinks he came back too early, warning Woods not to do the same.
"Tiger has a tough rehabilitation ahead and time is going to be the main battle for him. If he comes back too early it could have really serious consequences. I had the same operation and came back a little too early because I had a date in mind and was extremely stubborn. I was trying too hard to be back within five months," Els said.
If we all know Tiger a little bit, we know this will not be the case. He is going to rush back, try to win the Masters next year and as long as they don't have to amputate both legs, probably will. It's pretty crazy to think that his last victory at Augusta was 2005, seeing as the course was practically made for him. I'm sure he's hungry for another green jacket, so Ernie, thanks for the advise, but Team Tiger will probably be gnawing at the bit come April.
