Mr Woods I have been loyal to you as a fan of your golf ability. I respect your talent and can debate/argue the point that you are one of the greatest to play the game and you will be back at the top before long.( proven after your most recent showing at Chevron).
That being said I need to ask that for the sake of those of us who are fans PLEASE STOP DROPPING THE CLUB!
I am 56 yrs old today but when i was learning the game at age 12 and was in the JR club Chamopionship the person I was playing against was 13 and he did exactly that; dropped his club after every bad shot/not throw but show disgust and drop...after 4 holes his father told him to stop the antics which worked for 1 more hole and then I won the match as his father took him by the ear and walked him off the course.
No one in the world can hit a perfect shot every time. And bad shots can even be ugly shots, but the guy who can hit the bad shot and show no emotion is the classiest guy out there.
Please rethink the "drop" which I saw you do 11 times on tv at the Chevron and they did not show every hole on every day!
Perhaps you should actually go to a tourney before you comment.
I have watched most take time with fans and not throw clubs. These are two major drawbacks of Tiger.
Without naming names I have seen the top names spend over an hr signing autographs and these same do not drop clubs in a event.
If Tiger changes that he will succeed big time...the same way that if you are positive in your thoughts then your actions will become more positive for you..Try it..it works.
And check out a tourney in person one day!
Here we go .... again ! The different between Tiger signing autograph and others golfer is ,Tiger would be signing ALL DAY LONG! No body wants others golfers autograph,they only wants TIGER, It's worth 10 times more!!
SO TIGER, JUST BE YOUR SELF!!! IF You don't like it, you can just kiss off!
For fan safety, Tiger often cuts short authograph time. I have a neighbor who has been at a number of tornaments that Tiger was in and the report is.....he's very personable, reacts with gallery, and does spend a lot of time signing.
Got to remember.....not everyone in the gallery are true fans....look at the "hot dog guy".....and who knows how many other such "incidents" have happened!
Uh that is not exactly how it works...not even Cal Ripken signed for every autographee until none were left.. and he was amazing!
The autograper tells the crowd of autograpees when he is done signing. If Tiger would spend 15 minutes with the fans it would be huge to those few and to his image and to him! He would actually feel better than just walking by. The right mind set can make things happen on and off the course.
case in point...who did you respect more in College BBall when they had the same number of wins....Coach k or Bobby Knight?
Whose attitude would you want a kid/player to emulate?
