That was last year and the pressure has risen significantly, golf is a fickle beast when you take her for granted...BB

Would be useful if those who are saying that he isn't putting enough work could post the number of hours that he has spent practising alongside some other pros. That way we can analyse the data and see if there is any pattern that emerges. I am presuming of course that the data is at hand given what has been said.

He can't do it on a links course and he doesn't do wind. Well ,not yet anyway. Tiger, Jack , Seve ....they could do it all. Rors needs a track set up for him and while there will be other venues, I don't think it's going to be Augusta this year.

How many "the next Jack Nicklaus" where there before Tiger finally came along? Quite a few. How many "the next Tiger Woods" will there be before someone has the makeup and the game to carry that baton? More than a few I'd guess.

Rory may just be the guy but the burden of that expectation must be immense.

I would say the only person in the world who can stop Rory is...Rory.

Sometimes it seems like he has better things to do than golf, a problem Tiger never had.  Although, I don't spend a lot of time with him personally, so I'm just going with what's on the internet. :swoon:
I agree with this. It's not the sticks. He could be at The Oven every waking moment trying to iron out the issues even if equipment had something to do with it, but he's not... and i'm sure Nike is just loving that.

Interesting shots from the Honda today on Golf Central. As soon as Rory starts the club back he "stands up" a little and loses a noticeable amount of knee flex, loads a little differently than before, then drops for the downswing, and stands back up as he's making contact. That's a lot of movement to try and account for during each swing.

I've been posting on the same tennis forum for almost 15 years and there a lot of people are blaming Caroline's tumble down the rankings on Rory. Funny to see the same claims being made here.

I think it's more a matter of having too many off course commitments that come with such a huge sponsorship deal, tiring him out before tournaments. He'll bounce back, I'm sure.

Yeah the golf channel has had quite a few segments on rory's swing right now.
It's real jacked up and he needs to get it ironed out on his own. He could be playing G25's and it would help his miss right now.

Rory just had a meltdown at the Honda and walked off the course, stated his mind isn't right or something, still not convinced the pressure is mounting?? BB
