The news of Tiger Woods’ one-car crash which broke earlier this week was a reminder of his unrivalled cultural standing in world sport. He ended up suffering multiple leg fractures, but should in time make a full recovery – but does that recovery include golf?

The recent Tiger documentary might give some answers, and certainly adversity is not a stranger. We speak to author and journalist Lawrence Donegan about whether he will come back to the sport, what might drive him to return, and a startling last golfing stanza that Lawrence sees would be a fitting finale to a life almost unparalleled in its drama, pathos and epic scope.

We also get Frances Murphy’s guide to the sporting weekend, lotto heart-break, and we hear from the most hypocritical man in American sports history.
