Stop With The Golf Comparisons

It seems that every time a player has a hot streak, it is incumbent on golf pundits to make comparisons about their future play. Like a fly drawn to a bug sapper, it is a compulsion that drives needless scuttlebutt about the golfing world. Personally, I applaud players like Scottie Scheffeler and Cameron Smith who are burning up the 2022 golf season. Their current great play does not in any way set the foundation for forecasting their play over the next three years. Their play right now is fantastic and they will ride the wave of success. But starting to compare them the proven greats is a bit premature.

So, Tiger Woods Is Playing In The Masters

Not surprisingly, Tiger Woods has chosen The Masters to make is return to golf. Other than it is good for ratings that Woods is playing, I do not think he will be a factor on Sunday. I am not trying to be mean or controversial, I think that The Masters is hard to win when you are at 100% and Tiger is just not there. I think he will add a tremendous amount of start power to this weekends play…..not that The Masters needs a hype boost. Regardless of what I think, Tiger Woods is returning to golf this weekend and that is good for golf.

A putting routine is likely the most important golf process that any player can develop. The best players in the world definitely spend a great deal of time reinforcing their putting prowess and as I watch Tiger Woods, a pre-shot routine can be simple and easily repeatable. It is interesting to listen to Tiger Woods talk through his putting process as one of the greatest players of all time shares his secrets.

What Makes A True Golf Legend?

I have often wondered what we consider a true golf legend. Is it stellar play like Scottie Scheffler who rocketed to number one in the world in just 42 days that makes you a legend? Or is it a player like Sam Snead with a longevity of wins that makes you a legend? Or is it somewhere in between? To truly be a legend in a sport might be determined by the individual and not the collective.

What is Next For Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods is arguably the greatest golfer of all time. At a mere 46, this living legend has many difficult decisions to make in the near future. If you read the articles about his physical recovery, potential retirement, or a lingering fade into the sunset, one thing is for sure – in true Tiger Woods fashion, nothing is off the table. The armchair analysts are throwing out all kinds of conspiracy theories hoping that one will stick to the wall. If they luckily foretell Woods’ future, they likely could cash that guess into a something substantial. Regardless, I think no one knows what the future of Tiger Woods is except for Tiger Woods. Having said that……
