I know, bold and even arrogant, but hear me out.
I have been saying his swing is way off for the better part of 5 years. Those who read my blog going back to last May know about all my rants.
He has been successful in spite of his swing. He overcame it with grit, mental toughness, premier focus and a work ethic second to none. All of those things are weak as a result of the distractions caused by his behavior. They are no longer there to compensate for his unsound swing. I know he finished 4th at The Masters, but that was smoke and mirrors. I know he scored decent yesterday, but did you see that chunked/skied tee shot on 7? That 70 was smoke and mirrors again. He is missing shots in places he doesn’t normally miss them, because he is missing in both directions and doesn’t know where to play for the miss hit.
He can’t hit his controlled fade, because he is diving and stuck underneath…a bad place to try and cut the ball from, it just ends up being a pull.
Someone get word to him that I can help. I have sent letters to his agent, but doubt they were ever put in front of him. As I said in the letters I wrote to him, I know what it is like to be generating 130 MPH of club speed and be stuck…no one he can work with knows what that feels like.
Bold and arrogant, yes, but I really do think I can help him out of his funk because I have been there and I am finding my way out. I am no Tiger Woods, but I well aware of the pit he is in and I am ready to ump back in there with him or any of you.
Moral objections to his behavior that any of us may have aside, he is fun to watch when he is on top of his game and what better way for me to get my approach in the mainstream than helping the World’s best player.
Good for me, good for him and hopefully good for the golfing public that has been exposed to this morass of technobabble.
My soapbox breaks yet again.
