It seems that everyone has an opinion as to the problems with the golf swing that belongs to arguably the best player on the planet. Of course, I’m talking about Tiger Woods. The questions that seem to dominate all of the conversations around the former number one player are, can he beat Jack Nicklaus’ 18 major wins, and can he beat Sam Snead’s total win plateau?
Of course, the first questions are, will Tiger be able to return from back surgery, and will he ever win another major? I think those are the more current questions on the table because if he can’t return to his pre-knee surgery self, the other two questions are moot.
Jessica Marksbury from Golf.com talks with Mike Adams, and Brian Manzella who represent the top 100 golf instructors by Golf Magazine, regarding the state of Tiger’s rehabilitation, and his golf swing.
I happen to agree with these gentlemen, and think if Tiger doesn’t make some changes, he will not physically be able to play for the decade it’s going to require for him to beat these records that are still standing.
There is no question that Tiger has the heart, and knowledge to break these records, and don’t quite understand how a 64 year-old Tom Watson continues to compete at a level that almost won an Open Championship a few years back.
Instead of seeking new and better techniques, why isn’t Tiger talking to someone like Tom, who has stood the test of time, and continues to play great golf.
For contrast, I have included this video from Lou Guzzi that explains how Tom Watson can continue to play at this level well into his 60’s.
