    1. Congrats Vijay. It's good to see how he focused on his play over a 6 week span, starting with the week before the USPGA, and he won 3 of 6 events for a winning percentage of 50%. That's impressive. Pity he lost concentration and went flat in the last 2 events.

    2. That story about AK was rather hilarious. But it also shows how there's no one in the game today with the laser like focus that Tiger has. The last player with that same winning intensity was probably European Ryder Cup Captain, Nick Faldo. And look what that got him - 6 majors. The young guns of today have a lot to learn from Nick and Tiget if they open their eyes and minds.
