I don't like it because Chamblee said it and because I think it's wrong.
You can't call what happens on the PGA Tour losing, really; it's not the same thing as losing a football game or a basketball game. Even if you do believe that it' s the same, then by that logic his resolve should be strengthened every time he doesn't win a tournament.
Also, I can't see how losing a tournament in such a way is this close to an even bigger tournament in the Masters is good for his psyche. Going off the idea that losing in such a way affects him enough to change his resolve, then it's not crazy to think that this would hurt his confidence, so I think that Chamblee saying this collapse would be good for him at the Masters doesn't make much sense.
