Tiger Woods is an elite athlete and Golf is a sport. Are all golfers elite athletes though? Hell no.
Tiger Woods works his butt off in the gym, can lift a ton, runs daily. The man is an athlete, but only because he has made himself one. Golf did not make him an athlete because its not an incredibly rigorous sport. However, it takes skill and smarts and of course its a sport.

Thats like a fighter not being able to comeback to win a fight in the last round after he lost the first two rounds.
To be fair, he hasn't been in the position to make a Sunday comeback more than 5 times. He's usually either running away with the trophy already or is more than 5 shots back. Those times he has been within striking distance, he hasn't got it done, but he has never lost ground. Most of the time, it comes down to whoever is in the lead plays a great round of golf on Sunday and he can't make it up.
I agree that a comeback win in a Major will cap off his career, but the dude is already the best without it.
