While it isn’t the most popular sport amongst the fanatics across the country, Golf still holds a respectable place in the world of professional sports. Although lately, some have had the question of whether or not the sport of Golf is a dying game. There isn’t much of a reason for this claim to be made, but it could be correlated to the recent end of the Tiger Woods era within the world of Golf.
Since becoming professional in 1996, Woods quickly became the face of the PGA with his multiple tournament wins and major success at the Master Tournament with four wins alone. He is arguably the most known professional golfer of this generation, which easily put him as the go to guy when it came to discussing professional golf.
In recent years though, Woods has fallen off the radar within the PGA world. With controversy surrounding his personal life affecting his career, and medical issues keeping him away from playing the game, Woods was quickly taken out of the spotlight as golf’s number one player.
This doesn’t mean the end of golf though. In previous years, Woods was being paid as much as $3 million to just show up to a tournament because of his fame—but this year he no longer will be cut a check for his appearance, because the sport of golf has become a stronger name across the world.
You don’t have to look much further than the annual Masters Tournament to see that golf isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. As one of the most prestigious events in the world, thousands of people across the world will continue to travel to Augusta each April for the tournament.
