Tiger’s one piece of advice to his son that can help all golfers lower their scores

Published

on

In his first media appearance since his terrifying car crash back in February, Tiger Woods opened up to GolfDigest on a range of topics regarding his health and future.

Woods has been near silent since the accident he suffered back in February but was spotted multiple times out on the course this year with his son, Charlie, who at the 2020 PNC Championship showed himself to be a very accomplished player.

While discussing his recovery from his injuries with Digest’s Henni Koyack, Woods revealed how the ability to watch his son hit balls was one of the things he sorely missed while undergoing rehab.

“But I’m just happy to be able to go out there and watch Charlie play, or go in the backyard and have an hour or two by myself with no one talking, no music, no nothing. I just hear the birds chirping. That part I’ve sorely missed.”

Charlie caught the eye of all golf fans back in 2020 with his spectacular play and his likeness to father Tiger in his mannerisms at the PNC Championship.

Tiger’s son has won multiple times on the South Florida junior circuit in 2021, and while talking to Golf Digest, Woods revealed how one piece of advice he gave Charlie has helped transform his scoring.

“I went to golf tournaments to watch him play, and I’m looking at some of these scores he’s shooting and I said, How the hell are you shooting such high scores? I gotta go check this out. So I’d watch him play and he’s going along great, he has one bad hole, he loses his temper, his temper carries him over to another shot and another shot and it compounds itself. 

I said, ‘Son, I don’t care how mad you get. Your head could blow off for all I care just as long as you’re 100 percent committed to the next shot. That’s all that matters. That next shot should be the most important shot in your life. It should be more important than breathing. Once you understand that concept, then I think you’ll get better.’ And as the rounds went on throughout the summer, he’s gotten so much better.”

That advice is an element that Woods has demonstrated throughout his illustrious career and an ability that has never ceased to impress his peers.

While speaking on the ‘Earn Your Edge’ podcast back in 2020, Jordan Spieth had his say on Tiger’s ability to vent and then reset instantly before hitting his next shot, saying:

“He’ll hit a shot, and he’ll let himself know about it. But it’s mad. It’s not, ‘I can’t figure this out.’ There’s no can’t. ‘Or I’m struggling with this.’ It’s literally just him to himself, gets the anger out and then moves on. I’ve never once heard him be negative.”

Perhaps the greatest example of Woods getting his anger out of his system and committing 100% to the next shot was at the 2020 Masters.

After Tiger recorded a 10 on the par 3 12th hole at Augusta, the 15-time major champ bounced back with birdies on 5 of his final 6 holes. Following his round, Woods told media: “You just have to turn around and figure out the next shot, and I was able to do that coming home.”

Viktor Hovland has hilariously understated response when asked what he does for a living

Published

on

Just a week after the social media rumpus that was The Match, a 12-holer where both protagonists and commentators sought to be the loudest of the group, it was humbling to hear of the modesty of the current world number nine, Viktor Hovland.

The 24-year-old has plenty to boast about having had a stellar first three years on tour, recording four wins (three PGA and one European) with a further seven top-three finishes and a trio of top-15 Major finishes.

Yet when the Norwegian was spotted at Nassau Airport on his way to the Hero World Challenge, renowned golf journalist Joy Chakravarty tweeted the star’s response to being asked what he did.

”I live in Oklahoma and play a bit of golf” was his simple response.

The Norwegian travels to the invitation-only event as the third favourite, just behind Rory McIlroy and Collin Morikawa and in front of both Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka.

Go figure.

Golf club forced to close after pigs attack golfers

Published

on

Clown heads, waterfalls, caves, plaster whales and windmills all form the familiar holes in Crazy Golf, but Sky News last week reported on a pair of pigs storming the 18 holes of Lightcliffe Golf Club in West Yorkshire in the UK.

The report indicates that the pigs were first spotted on Sunday afternoon and, according to club professional David McKidd, injured a golfer that day before attacking a male employee the following Tuesday after he had attempted to drive them off the course.

Whilst it has its comedy overtones, both parties suffered a minor injury and were taken to a local hospital for treatment and tetanus injections.

It appears that nobody knows where the hogs had come from, but they clearly took to the greens, digging holes in one and forcing the club to take to temporary closure, although all opened again soon after.

“We had to close because they were wandering around and took over the course,” said clubhouse director Judith Crowther.”They ended up outside the clubhouse on the ninth green and didn’t seem to want to go away.”
