A little over a year ago, this project started with me writing an open letter to Tiger. Now, that I have declared that we are ready to begin teaching, I thought I would spend a little time talking about how I would help Tiger return to relevance in the golfing world.
Before I start, I want to clarify that I am absolutely sure that Tiger has forgotten more about golf than I will ever know. I do not doubt his golf acumen or his swing. I am sure that he and those around him have analyzed every aspect of his game, and yet he’s still not playing. The last statement that I read talked about his game not “being there yet.” Although the only information that any of us have is being released from those around him, I personally have my doubts about his golf game not being there.
The stress of returning to the public’s eye, the speculation and attention of the golfing world, not to mention the insatiable need of the media are each in themselves reason enough to stay away. But combine those and I begin assuming the ‘game’ that isn’t there is the ability or desire to deal with everything outside of golf that comes with Tiger trying to make a comeback.
Over the next few weeks, I will lay out how Ben and I would help a professional athlete using the TTW principles.
So, where would I begin with Tiger on this journey? At the beginning of course. With centering and breathing.
