Podcast: Tiger Woods' tips on mental toughness and what happens if you hit the wrong golf ball?
Even though Tiger Woods played his C+ game this weekend at the Bridgestone, he persevered.
Yawn. Another week, another victory…that makes four in a row, doesn’t it?
Despite a playoff with rival Stewart Cink (2004 winner) Woods’ strong mental game allowed him to stay focused with his “eye on the prize". We are simply amazed by Tiger Woods’ ability and discuss his golf tips on “how to master the mind” straight from his book, “Tiger Woods: How I Play Golf”.
In my opinion, Bobby Jones comes in a close second. Remember, Jones still remains the only person ever to win the Grand Slam, although many claim that Jack Nicklaus deserves the honor of “greatest golfer of the present day".
In the “Rules of Golf made easy” we discuss the ramifications of hitting the wrong golf ball.
Also, a question for our listeners. How was it decided to make a round of golf eighteen holes? Listen to our podcast to find out!
Finally, congratulations to Lorena Ochoa who celebrates her third win of the season at the Wendy’s Championship for Children. At least Morgan Pressel and Cristie Kerr came out of this event with a pair of top-tens!

While Keeler (and perhaps Grantland Rice) considered the four tourneys to be the most important, the pros of the day disagreed as to calling the US and British amateurs "Majors", as pros were obviously not permitted to take part in them. Pros like Tommy, Armour, Jock Hutchison, Walter Hagen, and Gene Sarazen were stiff competition for Jones. They were far better than any of the amateur competition, so Jones "wins" in the the US and British amateurs were "Majors" only in the mind of O.B. Keeler. The term "Grand Slam", for golf, did not exist in 1930, and likely did not exist until Keeler/Rice coined the term in 1953... much to the chagrin of Hagen, Sarazen, Armour, et al.
