Strange Statement From Tiger Woods
On Sunday, Tiger Woods tried to explain his weekend Major failure, saying:
“I was too relaxed, and tried to enjoy it, and that’s not how I play. I play intense and full systems go. That cost me.”
Does this strike anyone else as strange? He’s essentially saying that he wasn’t mentally prepared. That his attitude needs an adjustment.
Old Tiger had laser-beam eyes on the weekend that melted his opponents’ brains and pushed them into unforced errors. Old Tiger won Majors.
New Tiger enjoys himself. And so New Tiger doesn’t win Majors.
Without parsing his words too carefully, it sounds to me like he’s saying that the entire time he was winning, he wasn’t enjoying himself.
That would explain a lot.
Or, it could be a confession that he really has no idea why things aren’t working out for him.
I can’t figure it out. All I know for sure is that it’s a very strange statement.
What’s your take?
