Tiger Woods is one of the biggest names in golf, and while he has been able to receive some seriously impressive accolades over the years, one achievement that has always slipped out of his fingers has been an Olympic gold medal. While it seemed as though his chances of achieving this goal had passed him back, a new decision from the International Golf Federation means that it could still be on the cards.
An Impressive Career
Everyone knows who Tiger Woods is, right? This man has been in the limelight for a huge portion of his career, and much of that time has seen him dominate the competition to become one of the most successful golfers in the US and across the pond. At the moment, he’s ranked as America’s number seven golfer – and while that’s pretty impressive, it wasn’t enough to allow him the chance to compete at what would have been the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
A Second Chance
However, in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Tokyo Olympics has been postponed until 2021. This opens up a huge opportunity for Tiger Woods, as he now has the chance to step up his game and make his way into the top four in the country. Only those four names can qualify to compete at the Olympics, and there are countless events due to take place between now and the extended qualifying deadline of June 2021 that could see him do that. Although this pandemic has caused devastation across the world, it’s also given Tiger – and other golfers who also thought that they had missed out on an Olympic shot — another chance to succeed.
So, watch this space. If the upcoming golf events do take place, we could see Tiger in Tokyo after all. This would be a dream come true for the talented sportsman.
