Woods blows his chance to build momentum

January 30th, 2012 · No Comments

I had the obvious headline written for this piece on Saturday night – “Tiger is Back.” And he would have been if not for a final round of 72 at the Abu Dhabi, which dropped him into a 3t. After all, Woods was slamming his clubs again, he was hitting greens like a machine (85% […]

On McIlroy and Talent

January 3rd, 2012 · No Comments

Here is Jay Townsend’s take on Rory McIlroy on the Golf Channel’s Morning Drive today: “He should win because of his talent.” “He is the most talented player in the game.” The announcers make the mistake of talking only about physical talent, perhaps because they can see a player hit shots, but cannot see inside […]
