Am I disappointed yes....am I shocked no......lets think about putting for a while. Faldo pointed this out earlier and it was mentioned in another thread but the block is an easy fix.....Tiger is struggling with the release of his putter and he knows he is blocking it. This is a good thing....why because he knows exactly what he needs to work on. It has nothing to do with his confidence or that mental garbage everyone will be talking about for the next few days and into next weeks tournament.
Since the Frys., Tiger has a total of five tournaments under his belt + two rounds of matchplay with a healthy body...his iron play is well underway to being at his best form in years. The putter is the last club that he has left to master and it will return.
Tiger is a champion. A great putter. He will return to being a great putter again... have faith. Tiger has always struggled with his putter (lets go back a few years) ...remember his first round at the 97 Masters...he went back to his dad that night for help...figured it out and the rest is history...Unfortunately he doesn't have his Dad but he does have notes and his memories to serve as a useful tool to guide him.
Tiger is too talented too smart too dedicated to not fix what he has always been able to do (figure it out)....a recent example is the new swing. Its plain and simple to see he is heading in the right direction. The naysayers will say this and that...but like he said in his interview when he retires he will have a stealer career. The putting stroke will return. BELIEVE & BEWARE
Can't believe I heard Chamblee speak in Tiger's defense......
Yes, Tiger is on the way.....we all just need to cool it, be patient, trust and believe!!
People forget that in stroke play when something is off you can't recover the next day.
Have a blessed weekend
NO...I meant to say match play...oops...
