BREAKING NEWS - Tiger withdraws from Farmers Insurance Open


Recommended Posts

It's getting harder and harder to watch. Willie Mays........

 

I remember seeing  him with the Mets in the '73 World Series - it was tough to watch.  And he wasn't much older then than Tiger is now.  Difference is Willie just lost it -- I believe Tiger is not right physically and his "I can do anything I need to do to win" mindset has been missing since 2009...

I'm not sure that Tiger is missing the "I can do anything mindset" so much as the "I can do anything" ABILITY..

 

I don't think he's truly adjusting to the changes in his body, and making allowances for them.  I'm sure he's able to convince himself in practice that he's "game ready," but under the pressure of competition he gets into situations where he feels he needs to push his limits.  His body is pusing back now, in ways he just can't seem to accept.

I know it's cool to make fun and throw barbs... especially if you don't like him, but I know first hand how much a bad back hinders EVERYTHING you try to do. Just sayin'.

 

 

couldn't agree more....  I was told to put the clubs up for 3 months after my ACDF surgery, took a "slow" practice swing a couple days ago,  felt wayyyyyy off ...
