Tell you what. I'll take Tiger heads up against the Aussie for the next 5 years.
Tiger was heads and shoulders better than the field, then he re-tooled his swing and
was even better. Then he blew out a knee and went through a personal disaster that
would have crushed most people totally. He is still trying to get right from the
But, once he does, he will ascend once again to the top. No one....repeat...no one in
the game today has the grind and mettle of Tiger Woods including the Aussie, Rory,
or Phil. Everyone thought Tiger screwed up firing Fluff Cowan from the bag after all
of his success, when he hired Stevie Williams. Now he has fired Stevie and he will do just fine.
They said he screwed up when he fired Butch Harmon as instructor. Then he won with Hank Haney.
Odds are he will win with Sean Foley as well.
Woods is a freak of nature who will own most every record in the book by the time he is done.
It is actually good for golf that others have risen to challenge for the top. I don't
see any of them running away and hiding from the pack the way Tiger did.
So many people, like yourself, would love to see him fail. Whether it is jealousy of
his extreme talent, hatred of his lifestyle, or whatever, it will be fun watching them
eat their words when Tiger rises from the ashes.
