Golf is so highly competitive today. To win you need to be on top of your game every minute.....every shot and putt. Can't rest on your laurels thinking I've won the US Open.....I've won 2 other times on tour....I'm just simply better than anyone else. Won't cut it today :-)))
But then.....we know who is the best :-))) 74 pga wins, 14 majors, 3 W's this year alone!!! Simply the best.....that's our Tiger :-))))
But.....when he's playing.....he's focused.....he knows the competition is fierce.....he knows you can miss a cut just as easily as win.....
We can't get on every golfer that says something like this. Of course it should be easier when Tiger isn't playing or is out. That's a given and Webb knew that. He just won the U.S. Open and has a kid on the way. I'm sure his mind is on more than just golf right now. Can we give Webb a break? He's a nice kid with a bright future.
Had this been Phil or Rory, it'd be different, but this is Webb. His comments showed he has the utmost respect for Tiger. I can also tell you that pride is nowhere in Webb's dictionary unlike Phil or Rory or others.
