Is it possible that Tiger's poor play is an effort to run the ship into the ground, lose sponsors and decrease his net worth so that he doesn't give up more dough to his soon to be ex-wife? Showing how is image is hurt and he is not worth as much?

I worked in a office with a guy that did that, wanted me to falsify documents for him and lie about the portion of business that was mine coming into the office. He lost a ton of business and the office was barely making it. He had a bunch of cash that would never hit the banks and owned a ton of expensive guns as well that suddenly disappeared. I am somewhat surprised she didn't "disappear".

Opinions?

I don't see it. Florida is a community property state and she already gets half of the marital assets. The only way Tiger's earning potential would come into play might be with regard to alimony, which I doubt any court would award her given (1) her share of the divorce settlement and (2) the fact that she had a fairly promising career prior to marrying Tiger which she can probably resume without much difficulty.

She was a nanny. Hardly a promising career.

I think it's just a mental problem that he's chasing with physical fixes. He needs to stop being a prima-donna and play every (or nearly every) week. His short game looks like a bogey golfer's and he's missing three footers by six inches. If he doesn't play week in and week out, this isn't going to get better.

My idea? A psychiatrist has prescribed him drugs that have him numbed. He looked mentally and physically numb last week.

You'd look that way too if you just shot the worst round of your life and realized "wow I haven't hit rockbottom yet?" I'd be numb in his shoes, because how else could you deal with everything?

This may sound all well and good, but you don't know how much time he needs for legal issues such as the divorce and custody battles, as well as whatever else is going on.

I think this is a real possibility. This or pain killers. He was taking prescription drugs to heighten his sex with porn stars. He's had the operations and the neck pain.

My guess is he's struggling with an addiction to pain killers that he probably hasn't got the will to confront yet, what with all the other BS in his life right now. Also, coming off HGH probably leaves you feeling a little vulnerable, too. Do you believe him when he says he has never taken a PED?

I like the way you think.

Wow, and I thought my opening paragraph for this thread was loopy.

Wow, I haven't put much thought in Tiger's poor play, other than it must really be hard for him. But these statements certainly seem like a logical explanation.

Check your facts. She was a model prior to becoming a nanny for Jesper Parnevik.

And probably need to check your reality a bit.

As bwdial pointed out, the fact was that her job before marrying TW was as a nanny, and she wasn't modeling anymore. The modeling was a very part time thing along with working as a supermarket checkout girl and salesgirl in a clothing store before working for Parnevik. If the modeling was so lucrative and working out so well, why give all that up to work as a nanny? And now that she's ten years past her short modeling experience, what is the reality that is a career she could pick up again? Not many modeling opportunities for 30+ year old mommies.

Since it so much fun speculating, I'll add that I give the painkiller aspect some credence here, and I'm speaking from some experience. Following a spinal cord injury last fall with back surgery in December (and another in two weeks) I've been unfortunately relying on Percocets to get through the day-to-day pain. In general I'm fully functional with the pills but sometimes feel just slightly "off"; I've gone to the practice range a few times and found my timing just wasn't there. Although my full swings were OK, I really noticed it on the shots that need touch like pitching, chipping and putting. I thought that the lingering problems from surgery would impact my full swing more and I'd be able to work the short game, but it has been the opposite. And I also have a bit of a "give up" feeling when dealing with problems on my job or around the house. I just feel mentally less sharp, but in my job I can kind of veg for 15 minutes and get it back on track - I don't think one could do this playing on Tour for a living.

Watching Tiger in person at the US Open, my wife and I both noticed some quirkly strokes in his putting and that his chipping rythmn didn't look as smooth as it used to. Although he whined about the greens at Pebble, we observed that his practice strokes looked different from hitting the ball. Who know if the drugs are part of a cause, but his short game struggles looked similar to the ones I'm feeling. In the world of professional athletics, the difference between the best in the world and just the other athletes is often miniscule. And from my experience with painkillers, I can certainly understand those negating that difference.

    • Last time out I did make my first birdie of the year at 3. Hit a PW up hill to a 125 yard flag to 6 inches. Landed it short of the stick with a low trajectory hoping to skip it back to the flag and have it check up. Couldn’t have missed making a 2 my very much. Rest of the day I did my best to Kevin Na some birdie putts. Was feeling it after that shot. At 4 I smoked a driver and then hit a gap wedge from 92 to within 5 feet. I hit what I thought was a great putt and started walking it in.... lipped out on the high side tho. At 11 I hit my 2nd way right but my 3rd within 5 feet at the par 5. Again tried to walk one in only to lip on the high side: guess I should leave the walking in of birds too the pros!
    • Commenting ,just before  taking the shot (especially negative thoughts) affect your golf swing. Man I feel bad for you. It was awful. Action with some new rules should be taken for this. 
    • Well, at least you have the par-4s down!  I had a round a few weeks ago at my home course that would have been my second-ever no sixes (first was not at my home course)... played the par-5s in -1 (all pars and a birdie), but two sixes on par-4s did me in for the challenge.  Thankfully I have the badge from two years ago or so, but it'll be nice to have a few more rounds that fit this. 
    • Day 206.  Stop me if you've heard this one before.  15 minutes after work of 6-iron shots (about a half dozen total balls this time).  Same focus:  setup, backswing pace and length.
    • Day 52: COVID-19 day 6/7 short game drills. After that, did a few minutes of rehearsals for my priority piece. Lesson coming up at the end of this week to see where I have gone wrong with this one.
