Re visiting my 'Phobia inducement program-Plan 19', did I hear this week that TW had 19 'official' off course liasons? Not quite what I originally had in mind, but I might have got the implosion bit right.....

I loved your piece on "HTBTOAS",as all of us seem to have an angle on it.
As he's so focussed on the 18, and obviously 19 is what he wants, he's got to get phobic about the number 19. Walking down a fairway at EVERY tournament with an increasing number of huge '19' cards being held up in the crowd, tee-shirts with the digits on them and in fact every conceivable way '19' can be thrustinto his subconscious should do it. Like the Manchurian Candidate (great film-check it out)he has to be programmed to implode every time he gets near, on or anything to do with 19. He doesn't frequent many club house bars , does he? OK-he'll equal Jack's pro record, but at least he'll never beat it!!
Love your site. Russ Leeburn, Ipswich England

I appreciate your candor and thoughtful insight as to how Tiger "could" be beat on a Sunday. However, I think you may have left out the most important element to beating the most determined of champions: God Given Talent.
His talent level is miles above the rest of the pro's on tour.
What defense or attribute deflects talent? He's like Jordan was during his prime, he finds ways to beat you, no matter what you do, or how hard you work, he just finds a way to get it done (that's talent).
Also, are you a fan, or are you tired of seeing "pro's" falter time-after-time?

Regretfully, I have to agree with the other comments posted on this subject. Why don't you just get on your knees and kiss his butt? Are you angling for a dinner invite from him or what?
Look, if a player wants to beat Tiger on Sunday - even if he holds the lead, you have to believe in yourself. Tiger's secret is that he makes the other players kill themselves. Many contenders have already lost in their minds before hitting their first shots on Sunday.
Secondly, when you're the leader going into the last round, you're forcing everyone to chase you...that means they have to take some ridiculous chances on holes they would never dream of trying to birdie during normal play.
That is a hell of an asset.
So to beat Tiger on Sunday, the strategy is simple: (1) Believe in yourself and ignore the mindless parrots in the press. (2) Dont be reckless out there, but make the most of your birdie opportunities.
And lastly, instead of hearing the phrase "Tiger never loses when leading after three rounds" ringing in your head, focus on the phrase "Somebody is gonna beat him, so why not me?"
Until someone does that, Tiger will remain "unbeatable"

Of all the insults I've heard hurled at the media, "mindless parrots" is one of the better ones.

I'm sorry Tim, the article you wrote not only was below your standards, but quite juvenile. I know you can do better than that. I was expecting an article lauding Woody's performance and Ernie's great round (concentrating on what they had to do), because neither collapsed under the pressure. Tiger is great like Jack was, and sometimes cannot be beat.
Respectfully yours,
jc

Probably because I spent quite a bit of time in the Jacksonville Juvenile Detention Center, as a young thug.
As for what you expected, you can't always get what you want. I'd done earlier stories on the Wood man and Els, both.
