Although I’m indifferent to some of his political opinions, I found some truth in Rush Limbaugh’s musings on Tiger and the difficulty of Golf in general.
“And the aspect of the media making Tiger was in the fabrication of an image of Mr. Perfect. Mr. Perfect Husband, Mr. Perfect Father, Mr. Perfect Workout Guy, Mr. Perfect Man, Mr. Perfect Golfer, Mr. Perfect Corporate Spokesman, Mr. Perfect Everything,” Limbaugh said. “Tiger was one of these guys that every man wanted to be like and every woman wanted to be with, right? But none of it was real, as we have learned. None of it was real. “He wasn’t the best father. He wasn’t the best husband. He was the best golfer for a while, but it was all a manufactured image. This is the danger of these kind of things.” He said that now Woods “knows wherever he goes that everybody knows this” and that is has become a “mental thing.” “It’s gonna take some time for him to overcome (that) … I mean, the cure for Tiger would be to become entirely absent of any self-awareness. If he was totally able to not think about himself, then he’d be able to overcome it. Sure, I think the ability is still in there,” Limbaugh said.”
“Golf is such a mental game. I think they ought to make prisoners play it,” he said. “It’s so frustrating. It makes you so mad at yourself. It can make you so irritated. It would be the best form of punishment for people behind bars I could think of, to make ‘em play the game and actually make ‘em care about wanting to be good at at it.”
