Perez believes intense scrutiny of a new kind is suffocating Woods’ game. He thinks Woods’ attempt to play nice between the ropes and appease critics of his stormy temperament is taking away an edge that’s always worked for Woods.
“He needs to get that ***** back in him,” said Perez, winner of the 2009 Bob Hope Classic. “But he knows he can’t do that, or he’s just going to get hammered by the media if he does anything. But that’s him. He’s like me. He gets upset. He doesn’t accept mediocrity. That’s part of what’s made him great. You can’t change that.”
Woods and Perez will be among the 145 players teeing it up in Thursday’s start of The Players Championship at the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course. Woods is coming off only the sixth missed cut of his career, a disappointing showing at Quail Hollow that included a 79 in the second round. It was just his second tournament back since news of his marital infidelities began rocking the golf world. He spent four-and-a-half months away before returning with a tie for fourth at the Masters three weeks ago.
Read the article to see the bad word.
Let my New Coach's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus, Hallice, Deonte, Dustin, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and McKaT.
So many different five letter curse words... good call on using the article to figure it out haha.
Anyways, I agree with Perez. It doesn't look like this new calm Tiger is anywhere near as good as old Tiger. Maybe he's wrong, maybe I'm wrong, but I would rather see him get upset with himself over bad shots again... just leave out the "banging other people than your wife" part of old Tiger.
