From the Rough

Golf without discretion

When will Tiger Woods get his mojo back?

with one comment

It used to be that playing with Tiger Woods on the weekend was an intimidating proposition for any golfer. The intimidation factor alone was enough to make a player fold like a cheap lawn chair.

But times have changed. On Saturday, during the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open, Jhonattan Vegas not only match Woods shot-for-shot, he bested him by five shots, something that would have be unheard-of for a tour rookie.

But times have changed. Woods is no longer the black knight with the impenetrable armor; he’s come out looking more human after his personal problems came to light last season, and since then he hasn’t been the same player.

His four-shot collapse at the Target World Challenge was just another sign that Tiger just isn’t Tiger anymore. While he’s still in the midsts of reworking his swing, it’s clear golfers aren’t afraid of him like they used to be.

It all begs the question: When will Tiger get his mojo back? It most likely will come with gaining confidence in his new swing and winning again. For now, Tiger remains a wounded animal that will be preyed upon by anybody with a decent golf game.
