I wish he would back off on beating Jacks majors and go for Sneads PGA wins record.
He is trying too hard at times...looked happy Thur and Fri ....and miserable Sat and Sun.
And then maybe the MAJORS will come.
Wouldn't expect Tiger to look happy while watching his chance to win fall down the leaderboard! And the pressure? Think that's more "media talk" than "Tiger talk". Never hear him say that "time is passing I gotta win this". He's asked all the time and responds "Jack won his last major at 46, so I have 10 years".......
Do you sincerely believe Tiger "choked"......I don't. He hit some poor shots and faced the consequences. Olympic is an unforgiven course. He's still building his game with this latest swing change. It's only been 12 mos when you deduct the time he was on the injured list.
Too little confidence? That may be true. But will continue to grow with each tournament he plays and finds himself in contention. He's had 2 "W"s and a 2nd place since January.
Please, remove the C word from the vocabulary. Let's take a deep breath and think about all.
Last January, the sky was falling, Tiger could not finish, he couldn't putt etc after Robert Rock and then in ATT Pebble Beach.
He came back and won API and Memorial. Tiger admitted for them, they are not majors.
So he needs to get back into solid play for four rounds in the more pressure-filled majors.
They will come. As Henry Ford once said: "If you believe you can or you believe you can't, you're right".
Forget the C words, what happened to Tiger on Saturday & Sunday at the Lake Course was a simple case of trying too hard which led to the freeze up of his game. Tiger needs to develop a more casual and fun approach to the game of golf and tournaments. When you try too hard to achieve a goal sometimes it will escape you. As a fan of Tiger on Sunday I knew because he played so poorly NBC would limit the coverage of Tiger.
The next tournament for Tiger is the AT&T National and Tiger will rebound and play once again for the "W". It will be interesting to see his body language as he plays in Bethesda.
Can anyone explain to me the relationship between the PGA Tour and the USGA because I would like to know who will determine the placement of the tees and holes at Congressional in 2012?
I hope Congressional plays tough this year and Rory comes back to play it again. lol
The AT&T National is a PGA Tour event, so the PGA Tour tournamernt staff (probably Mark Russell) will determine pin placements. The US Open was USGA event so Mike Brown and staff did the pin placements and influenced the course setup there. I believe the R&A will control the course setup and pins for British Open, and the PGA of America staff will control PGA tournament. The Masters pin placements were determined by ANGC during their tournament.
Actually.....we had a poster who had Direct TV on Sunday and she said Tiger was having a great time on the back 9 holes....laughing with his caddy and waving to Padraig Harrington when they were on oppoiste holes.
