Tiger Woods may not be ready for the big show yet.
That might seem like a pretty big stretch so early into the PGA season, but Woods showed what could be his true colors at the Pebble Beach Pro Am over the weekend. After safely landing just two strokes behind the lead on hole No. 6, Sunday afternoon, Woods finishes a whopping 11 strokes behind tourney champion Phil Mickelson. How does a golfer fall back that bad?
In short, it’s because Tiger may not be ready for a full comeback. He just isn’t where he needs to be in his game to actually win tournament. In golf, it’s all about closing in four-day tournaments. Tiger played well for three days, but he simply couldn’t close. After he was within an eagle of the lead on No. 6, Woods bogeyed the next three holes and in total, he missed five putts within five feet. Something had to be playing with this guy’s head.
We all know golf is a mental sport. So how could a fan of the game possible expect Woods to bounce back quickly after what he dealt with during his dispute with ex-wife, Elen Nordengen. That one low-point in Tiger’s life will haunt him forever and fans of Woods should never discount the toll that the situation has taken.
