Tiger is gone, Cheetah is back... According to a British newspaper,
Tiger Woods admitted to cheating on his girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, which
was the cause of the breakup.
Sometimes it seems like the guy cannot catch a break. Perhaps it's
karma coming back to haunt him for numerous past transgressions. He's
getting what he deserves. Others might call it simply bad luck.
Funny how the tournament schedule in Viet Nam closely follows the Tour
schedule. For example, we have the Norfolk Invitational during the
Masters week, we have Thu Duc Garden Homes around the same time as the
US Open and a host of other events during the Open Championship and PGA
Jordan Speith walked off with the Masters green jacket after going
wire to wire. Not many people have done that, nor did they put up a
record amount of birdies on the way. So what can we learn from this past
Occasionally, we will have "invitational" tournaments here in Viet
Nam, but those not invited still find a way to get in, either through a
friend, a sponsor exemption or pressure from a high-ranking friend.
I was having a nice chat with a friend on the practice green today
and he mentioned that, according to the Tour pros he's spoken with
during his jaunts to Tour events, and they claim the Masters is the
easiest of the major events to win.
The golf magazines have been touting Rory McIlroy's "chiseled
physique" which is a result of his workouts in the gym. In one photo,
they practically gushed over him dead-lifting 190lbs.
With the Masters tournament right around the corner, speculation is
running wild (which is shorthand for "golf writers feverously looking
for ways to slip Tiger Woods into the conversation somewhere to make
their editors happy") on who is the favourite to win the event.
In his seemingly never satisfied search for perfection, he could no
longer see the forest through the trees. The golf swing is both simple
and complex. It doesn't have to be, but due to human nature, it is.
According to Greg Norman in a recent interview, far too many of PGA
Tour players are "sheep", unwilling to go for broke and content to just
stand in the meadow munching grass and collecting checks. Pretty fair
assessment or nasty slur?
