Throwing his clubs and kicking his clubs all over the course. He looks like a spoiled baby. Pretty immature behavior for a 30 something guy. Just makes him look stupid IMO.
This guy is really living off his past reputation. He hasn't won may big ones in years. He was a lot better before he injured the knee, back and kept having surgeries and got cleaned out in the divorce. What has he done since? He's a shell of the former player he once was.
And what the hell is all this change your swing, change your short up and down game and change your putting? He was the best in the world. So he tears down and changes absolutely everything in his game. Why? He got worse....
You have absolutely no clue about golf or any concept of the game so move on to another thread. He's back up to the 6th ranked player in the world obviously you don't pay attention to the sport.
Faldo the analyst and many others have been saying exactly what I said. Tiger was at the top of his game and fired his swing coach, caddy, all his handlers and surrounding people. He then had affairs with dozens of chicks, got divorced, injured his knee and has never been the same. He wasn't fighting for #6 back in the day. He was #1 by far and whoever was #2 was so far behind him it wasn't worth mentioning. Now he struggles in major after major (tournaments he used to dominate) and people still think he is the best.
I didn't say he wasn't a good or historically good player. He is and was. He's just not as good as he could be / should be if he kept the winning swing coach and caddy and all the handlers that had him winning. He made tons of changes and got worse. Not better.
Going from #1 to #6 and struggling in every major is WORSE. Tell me how it's better? He hasn't won a MAJOR in years....
