Time off for Tiger
September 24, 2010 - Steve Anderson
For all he's been through in the past year, Tiger Woods is still the dominating force in professional golf. When Tiger plays, even poorly, television ratings go up and more people are interested in watching which is always good for the game. He's not only challenging Nicklaus for being the best golfer of all time but has become perhaps the most famous athlete the world has ever known, passing Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordon in that statistic. I'm glad he's finally getting some help with his game with his new teacher but now he has to get the mental side going too and my adivice to him would be to play the Ryder Cup then take the rest of year off to get his life back in order. Jack Nicklaus has said that 90% of golf at the professional level is mental and I agree and there's no way Tiger has that working for him at the moment. With a few months off I think he'll come out next February refreshed and back to near his old form. The sport needs a superstar and while he made a mess of his personal life there's no doubt he's good for the game.
