Apparently, this was a typical "Tiger Day" during the Haney years. I'm sure he did about the same under Butch Harmon. I heard nowadays he's getting in 45 holes per day plus practice. It's no wonder his body is falling apart, but goodness gracious, this guy loves golf:

6 a.m. Wakeup
6:30 – 8 Workout/weights
9 – 11 Hit balls on practice tee
11-11:30 Practice putting
11:30-12:30 Play nine holes
12:30-1 Lunch
1-3 Practice tee
3-4 Short game practice
4-5 Play nine holes
5-5:30 Hit more balls
5:30-6 p.m. Practice putting

How he fit in family time plus mistress time plus business/sponsorship/charity related meetings into all this we'll never really know

I´m pretty sure that practice schedule is overhyped. There is no way to not get a burned out after a couple weeks of that. Studies have shown that 5 hours of practicing with full concentration is the absolute max a person can do with plenty of breaks and anything more than that is counterproductive. Most normal people even struggle with focusing on a single task for one hour let alone five.

I read an article about Tom Lewis and his daily schedule from Mon-Friday was practicing putting, short game and hitting balls for one hour each and then playing 9 holes.

You've obviously never seen a South Korean girl practice. It's almost literally from dawn until dusk. Not every pro does, but many put in crazy hours out there.

The Tiger Day doesn't happen seven days a week though, I'm pretty sure of that.

Yes, I´ve seen plenty of them practice. However many of them have no idea how to practice and just engage in mindless practice which is a complete waste of time. The other day I witnessed some Korean girl hit the same exact straight forward chip shot from the same place for 2 hours straight while her ambitious father yelled at her everytime she hit a bad chip. There is a difference between practicing with deliberate focus and mindless practice. If you practice with your mind (doing specific drills, making slow motions swing while being completely engaged in the movement etc...) after an hour even the most dedicated individuals will be completely mentally drained. If all you do is practice with your hands you might as well go to the clubhouse and get drunk which is equally effective.

Well, that's your opinion, and of course, you could be right that this is not the best method. But the fact remains, they are out there religiously practicing. Many don't get "burned out after two weeks" either. They just keep on truckin.

Yeah I believe it's about making the practice meaningful, not just mindless repetition.  I've got an indoor driving range and it's so easy to hit a ball and tee it up to hit again.

I'm really working hard to visualize shots, go through pre shot routines, pretend I'm on the course, work on something in my swing rather than just swing away without progressing.
