Six times major champion Nick Faldo has opined that Tiger Wood's slump on the golf course is a result of mental problems.
Six times major champion Nick Faldo has opined that Tiger Wood’s slump on the golf course is a result of mental problems.
The former number one suffered his worst professional round as he slumped with a 13-over-par 85 on the third day of the Memorial Tournament in Ohio.
Faldo, who is now an analyst of the game, said that this has been ‘going on for a while’, Sport24 reported.
He said that for a golfer, the real problem begins when he fears the shot before hitting the ball, saying that this was the case with Woods and that’s why he was not comfortable.
Saturday’s round at Muirfield Village, a course at which Woods has tasted victory on eight occasions, was only his third in the 80s in the entire career.
Faldo said Woods was still searching for a swing fix during a practice round this week with coach Chris Como.
