Agreed. It was well written with some new anecdotes, but the overall themes surrounding Tiger Woods remain unchanged by the article.  The major point I disagree with is definitively declaring tha

From what I've heard, at one point Nike was very low on wedge blanks for tour players so they sourced some blank heads from Miura. The heads were ground by Nike tour club guys, were in play for a shor

I don't know if this has been brought up here before, but I just watched a YouTube video about Tiger's SixPeat - his six year run of 3 USGA Junior Amateurs followed by his 3 US Amateurs.

I read more than a few posts in social media it might be over for Woods, without any hard evidence other than his performance at The Masters, this says the otherwise.

Woods playing with his son, Charlie, in PNC Challenge December. If you've seen the vids on social media (Charlie), you know it's a pretty good swing.

Is Charlie going to be the youngest participant in that event? I've only watched a few and the youngest kid I saw was probably in university.

John Daly Junior has played for a few years.

This already aired, Nov 29th, but I guess they'll replay it.

There’s a scene early in the upcoming ESPN documentary “Tiger Woods: America’s Son” that’s striking because it’s something we haven’t seen...

Foley says he thinks he may have overcoached Woods.  There's no full copy of the interview online, it's only in the print edition if I'm reading it correctly and is a UK publication so probably hard to find in the US.

Quote

    “Looking back on it now, I think I probably over-coached him. I was there at a time when he needed someone to support him.

    It was a time in his life when a lot of people who’d been in his life for a long time started to ditch him. I think, unfortunately, I approached it from the point of view that good technique will take care of everything."

One of the 15-time major champ's former coaches has shared regrets over their time together.
Quote

“Honestly, sometimes I giggle to myself when I think about it. Like, what was I even trying to tell Tiger Woods? Honestly. I remember one time he wasn’t chipping well and he asked me to take a look. If I had the chance again, I’d probably say, ‘Dude, you’re Tiger Woods. It’s chipping. Look within yourself. I’m sure you have the answer.’”

Talked about this with some people at the Teacher of the Year conference.

Foley got a very "broken" golfer when he coached Tiger. Not entirely Foley's fault, by any stretch.

I had a lot of windshield time these past few days so I listened to Hal Sutton. He made the point that above a certain skill level, it’s all mental. And in his opinion, you need a mentor who’s been there and dealt with the highs, the lows, the loneliness, etc. 

Perhaps Sean is saying he treated the wrong disease?

I recorded it, I think. I saw it was on, and then there was a later showing at midnight or something. I should have it, I think.

Have you watched this yet, Erik? Curious to hear what you think.

Hal is full of shit.

And nobody has been where Tiger was, or even if it’s in a different arena, that other person isn’t Tiger, with his childhood or personality or experiences or body or anything else.

No. Way down on my list.

Really? Based on what? Pretty strong statement on Hal. 

10 of Tiger's 15 majors were won with Earl in Tiger's head. Granted, Hal's comments weren't related to Tiger per se, but I know several PGA players who couldn't handle the pressure. They admit it. Vomiting. Alcohol. Weed. Anything to control the anxiety.

Earl did an amazing job of keeping Tiger focused without going down those rabbit holes.

As to others, look at Todd Marinovich (football) or Jennifer Capriati (tennis). Tiger is amazing, no doubt, but he's not the only child prodigy out there. I personally know Olympic athletes who started at 4 years of age ... and speak of the stress, the havoc their body took, the mind games ...

Based on a ton. Lots of topics about this here. Tiger was physically better than everyone else. He had shots nobody else could hit. It wasn’t just a mental thing that separated him.

Foley taught a broken (injured) golfer.

    • Dude, calm the F down. He never said he wasn’t for the vaccine. Just because he doesn’t think it should be compelled by government force doesn’t mean he’s not for it. I was one the first people I know personally to get it (because healthcare professionals’ spouses could get a vaccine in my area; my wife is a FNP), but that doesn’t mean I think the government should make everyone get it—even though it likely can do so constitutionally under law (although government officials ha e already indicated that they will not mandate the vaccine). As for now, it’s still an individual’s choice. If they want to be stupid and not do so, that’s their prerogative, unless their employer demands it. 
    • Asymptomatic transfer is the danger. The very fact that this person decided not to bother getting tested because he felt OK just shows that he is an example of what the health authorities are ip against. He simply doesn't understand how it transfers. I am living in Australia, and we are currently in the middle of a soike that is fast getting out of control. We're worse than we were a year ago. All because our pathetic government was slack in ordering enough vaccines and the insanity of being anti-vaccine has spread worldwide. I get that screaming at people and judging and blaming and chest beating can be (I mean is) counterproductive when dealing with sceptics, but just the idea that someone who is eligible capable of receiving it thinks they have to "research" or even think about getting the vaccine astonishes me. 
    • 1) I am 100% for vaccine, so tone down the barking a bit here. I am trying to push as many people, POLITELY, to get the vaccine. Because, when has barking at the, or calling people idiots ever gotten them to do what you want them to do.  2) How much more does the vaccine help someone who has had COVID resist getting COVD? If he tests positive, should he get the vaccine if he has sufficient antibodies to resist it from getting COVID? Should we demonize him for it if he is sufficiently protected because he had it.  How many are those who previously had COVID? Just asking questions to get information not to combat you on getting the vaccine or not.  Don't take my questioning as denouncing getting the vaccine. I am not an expert, and any more information is good for me to pass along. I 100% agree with taking the vaccine if possible. Which is a very high % of people out there. 
    • Reading through these reviews one thing stands out.  You guys are lovers of the game, you guys are observant of the nuances of a golf course and you guys can write.  Kudos.  I think that defines your basic TST'er. I have friends that fulfill the first two items, but they can't and/or hate to write.  Too much like high school.  So they'll never come on here.  They are famous for texting only "Ok" to a longish, heartfelt text I might send their way.
    • "probably" should have? When is wife had it? "If" the vaccine "further helps him out"? The guy is clearly anti vaccine. A fool. Pardon me, but it sounds as if you are not 100% on board with the vaccine. You even said that he basically should decide whether he should get the vaccine only if he had tested positive! Why can't these people understand that you get the vaccine to save others, not just yourself. Symptoms or no symptoms. You get the vaccine. Unless you are a selfish dick who doesn't give a sh*t about anyone else. UNLESS your doctor specifically tells you NOT to take it, lest risking your own life. Am I missing something?  The vaccine has "helped" many, many millions of people out by making sure they don't die. And don't pass it on.
