Blog Photo - Tiger Woods keels over with back injury at Barclay'sEveryone keeps debating about whether or not Tiger Woods is all the way back from his journey from greatness to relative mediocrity. After seeing him at The Barclays on Sunday, I'm starting to think that there's a chance that he'll never be all the way back.

Tiger's back has been an issue for years, and it's certainly not getting any better. On the 13th hole at Liberty National, he actually keeled over after his second shot.

Check it out:



This may be an overreaction, but is it time to give up on the idea of Tiger Woods coming back completely and becoming the greatest golfer in the world again?

Even Tiger's slumps are better than all but 5-10 players in the world, so he'll probably continue to be an elite player until the day he decides to walk away from the game forever.

Even after being visibly injured on the course and experiencing severe back spasms, Woods finished only one stroke behind tournament winner Adam Scott.

This is a guy who still has a chance to be one of the greatest of all time, and at one point seemed like a lock to break Jack Nicklaus' record for most major championships.

Is this the beginning of the end for Tiger? Or could we still see the Tiger of old?
