'Karma' means that Tiger will roar no more

REVELATIONS: Tiger Woods

FORMER MAJOR champion Nick Faldo is of the opinion that Tiger Woods can never claim to be the greatest golfer of all time after revelations about his private life.

Woods, 36, has not added to the 14 majors he won before a sex scandal erupted and Faldo, himself a six-time major winner, thinks Woods stands next to no chance of eclipsing Jack Nicklaus' record of 18, which has stood since 1986.

"(The revelations) have done more damage than people would give them credit for," added Faldo.

"People thought he would deal with it and then get back on the golf course.

"It's wrecked that wonderful tranquility you get of going to a golf course, tipping out a bag of balls and hitting them from 9-5 and just thinking of golf.

"When you're a golfer that is great. But now... He has shattered that peace. He won't get that back. Once you lose that concentration and that ability to become completely engrossed in your golf... then slowly things have changed for him.

"His swing... physically, technically, mentally, karma... it's a harder climb right now. Sure, he could come back and do things, but he won't be dominant like he was."

Woods took a four-month break from golf after admitting cheating on his wife three years, and he has struggled to impress since returning to action.
