Tiger Woods will start this Thursday in the Masters. The Masters is without a doubt the most prestigious of all golf tournaments. But Tiger has not won a major tournament since 2008. Who would have believed that possible? Once, Tiger was just weeks away from reaching Jack Nicholas’ record of 18 Major Golf tournaments. At 14 he’s still in the running but his game hasn’t been there since his disastrous marriage scandal.
I’ve always believed golf is a mental game. Perhaps that’s why it’s such a difficult game. There are lots of physically tough people out there but not as many can hold focus for four hours. Tiger’s life went into a tailspin that he has yet to pull from. This weekend may be that turning point back on track.
He says he’s been working his ass off, well we’ll see if it pays off starting Thursday.
I wish him the best. Golf hasn’t quite been the same without him.
