"When did you first when I hit you is I mean Watson, had you know he he was playing well regally for a round or two, you know, at the majors and it wasn't unheard of for him to to have one good round and maybe even two. But then at some point he would, he would fade away and you know, that's fine. But when did you get swept up in the story? Well, it's funny to to talk about win. I, I thought about Tom Watson, at the British Open. You have to go back to April that year, Tuesday of Augusta, two thousand and nine. It's raining, it's kinda cold miserable. There's not that many people there. Even the patrons didn't wanna show up that day, but I'm going out to play a few holes and I go to the, I t. And there's Tom Watson. Hey, you want to join up so sure. I knew Tom. A little bit, but his career and my career really didn't coincide. I mean, he pretty much had stopped playing by the time I started onto or my rookie year. He occasionally popped up, you know, and I saw him at the majors, but I didn't really know him that will. We go out on the golf course. It's wet. It's cold. It's windy and Augusta, you knows pretty long and it's demanding course and Tom's not the longest hitter anymore. But he's hitting these drives that are just like low bullets and a mccraw someone's. They're just going straight in. Every shot he hits is out of the center of the Cup face. He's flagging iron shots and hybrids, and he's just hitting these beautiful chips around the greens and after nine holes, actually after about four holes, my thought was this guy could really do some at the ritual. Interesting. And that's something I'm playing with him in a practice round at Augusta in whether that's like the opposite of what you see over there. I mean in the air, it was the same as what you see over there. But on the ground, it was the opposite with software conditions. And my thought was like, man, this ball flight, how solid he's hitting it. He's got control was vol. This guy he's made for the British Open. And of course I knew at the time my point at the time was thinking, oh, I guess that's why he's. One of those. Yep. Of course, I would have had no idea that he would go and do what he did at Turnberry two majors later. So. The whole world's rooting for Tom Watson and no matter who is competing against. They were going to be for Tom Watson, you happen to be the guy who was standing in the way of what would have been maybe the best sports story of all time. So after having done all this mental work, how do you keep any of those thoughts at bay. And just say, I can't worry about Tom Watson, I just gotta keep hitting shots. I mean, how did you do that? Actually, the way that I held those thoughts at bay was the same way that I try to hold all the thoughts at bay when I'm coming down, the stretch of a tournament in that is I welcome though salts in sort of discussing with all the voices going on in my head, there are discussion going on. No, I didn't try to hold anything off or keep it at Bay. I wanted to deal with it. I wanted the chance to. That's why I worked so hard, and that's why I play off to put myself musicians where I need to figure stuff out. And you know, how am I going to handle it? So him being in the position that that he was in. As he came down the last two holes. I think I was three groups in front, right? So I had a little bit of time there. I watched the finish and it when he hit the fairway eighteen. It looked like it was probably over because he needed to make par. Yep. And then his second shot, he carried it on the green, which was kind of a no, no there because it was down win so much and you couldn't carry it on the green and stop it. And so ball rolled over the green. We all know what happened there. You know, shot from behind the green on TV look pretty pretty docile, but it wasn't. It was scary steep hill..

"And so about sixth tournament here we are at Turnberry after all this overhaul. So I've got number one. I'm kind of building the puzzle at for you. Number one, my putting is completely new still and I'm completely obsessed with like what I'm doing with my buddy. Number two. I go to the range on Wednesday night struggle with my ball striking, not really get much out of my rounds and you know, feel like I'm hitting kind of wild and work with Butch Harmon. So he and I had discussed it and seen each other and nothing was really clicking. You know, it's kind of a little bit of a low sort of eb in our in our working together. And I go to the range on the way to the range I run into Mike Rico. Good friend of mine. You know the the great and he's coming back from the media center which is near the range, and we chat house the kids. You know the pleasantries for about a minute or so. And then we, we walk apart. I'm going towards range and he turns around and says, oh Stewart, by the way you got anything this week, meaning, you know, how's your game? What can we talk about on TV or whatever. And I turned around and said, Mike, I'm going to be honest. I got enough. That's where my game was. I didn't feel like I had anything, and so he's like, well, you never know. So I turn on and go to the range. My caddie Frank Williams was with me and I might have been the only guy there. I don't remember, but it's probably seven, eight o'clock at night on Wednesday and get over there. And I started in a few shots and thinking back through a few of the things that Bush and I had worked on over the last five years and just decided that I'm, I'm not really doing anything. Good right now with my ball striking. I'm just gonna go back and do something from point in time. When I remember feeling like dominant with my shocking and I'm just going to commit to doing that. I don't care what it is or what feels right, but I'm just gonna. I just decided really before this hard hitting balls like what's it gonna be? So you have you have like an encyclopedia, swing thoughts and you select one? Yeah, that's right. That's basically right. And I went back to this swing thought that I had with Butch from about a year and a half prior to that where I was just thinking big and slow, big and slow, big and slow in trying to share my shoulders. A really full shoulder turn. I was thirty six. So my body was starting to, you know, get a little bit out of that youth getting in more into the, you know, amid age. So I felt like I might have lost some of my turn. So I'd say I'm just going to focus on being big with my shoulder turn and slow with my rhythm in transition. So went to the range with the first ball in thought, big and slow. That's what I'm doing. And I've pureed it for twenty minutes on the range and appeared it for seventy two holes. And you know the first day at at Turnberry that year it was flat calm like it was cloudy and perfect weather. It was like playing at the in Palm Springs in the wintertime, it was absolutely perfect weather and everybody shot pretty low. I shot sixty six, which was four hundred. And I was probably in the top ten, but there was a lot of guys under par and then Friday, Saturday and Sunday, it blue and it was cold and it got more typical and you had to really strike it well, and I played solid golf the whole week hit. Really good drove it. Well, just. Just and the my new putting, you know was was right there to to keep me scoring and to save some pars of needed to. And I was excited about it. Plus you put Tom Watson, the mix and maybe in a sports fan, I was engulfed with the story of Tom watts..

"So was, was it a straight line causing effect missing that putt, then the next year you started experiencing the I mean is that no, that putt was more like a a symptom downstream from already having that problem before because I was already starting to feel like the a little bit of pressure on short putts and. Other parts of the game too, but especially putting putting is just such a, it's such a fine division between success and failure, and it's right there for the world to see. You know, it's either make or miss. And so that's where that's why I referred to putting the low hanging fruit. And so that had already started for me and I, I started, gosh, I don't know if I'm right about this. I think I started talking to Preston Waddington before that. I'm not really sure. I can't remember that went back to the research. It was after. Okay. Early two thousand two. And you started talking to Washington. Okay. Two thousand two. Yeah. So so what I would have done when I started talking to to press them, wanting ten was our first conversation would have been something like this. All right. I've had a few times my miss short putts and I feel really anxious about it. And so now when I get over other short putts, I feel more anxious that I might do again as evidenced by southern hills and a couple of other incidents, and he knew about him. Yeah, and so yeah, that became part of the body of evidence, but it was more like a continuation. It was kind of like that brought it to the surface rubs like, all right, I need to do something about this because I, I don't want to continue like this. So you do all that self examination and you begin a long ascent, and I mean you, you played some spectacular golf in the in the two, thousands. And of course you do have the misfortune of your p. coincide of Tiger Woods is peak, and it makes me laugh in these young. I'd like to play tiger at his best like, no, you don't teeth chicken. You have no idea how good this guy was. I mean, you saw you lost a playoff Bridgestone lost in the finals. The match play. I mean, you saw tiger at his absolute best. So I'm sure as a fan of the game and all that you're fortunate that you experienced it. But as a competitor, it had been tough because this guy was almost unbeatable. Yeah, he was, and it was, I would say it was a mix of misfortunate and and great fortune to because of playing golf on the PGA tour has become pretty lucrative. And really we have one person thinking that stagger was and Tim Finchem probably just start. Yes, but tiger just raise the bar out here in so many ways. I mean, it's obvious that he raised the financial stakes that we play for, which is is great, but also playing with tiger. I think so many times on Sundays when he won and sometimes on Sundays when I won sometimes played near him, wash him on TV just. Watching in learning like, how does that guy go about doing things differently? Different from the way I go about it, what can I do to get better without tiger setting that bar for me, you know, I would have probably fell a little shorter, and that may have translated two more wins without tiger in the mix, who knows. But I don't really care because in the end I'm just trying to be as good as I can be golf as good as I can be my living my life and being the person I want to be and wins, and miss cuts and all that stuff just as sort of like a, that's a a secondary category that takes care of itself. And in fairness that the w g see you on, didn't he finished second? I mean, I think he might. I think he did. Yes, I don't. I don't think I've played with tiger. No, I didn't play with tiger play with Chris DiMarco on Sunday in twosome's, but tiger was right there. And I think he ended up finishing second. I think I won by three or four shots. Yeah. So you to at least once. The. You get a chance to nip tiger when he's top in the world. You know that that was something to hang your hat on for sure..

"So it was doable, wasn't easy shot to judge just right, and I'm just thinking I need to get this ball up and down. Have a chance because teeth is gonna make probably a four, but there's about. You know, twenty five percent chance. He's gonna make a birdie and five really wasn't in the cards because he was literally ten to twelve feet and one of the great. Putters ever. Right? So, and so so I hit my chip and it came out a little slow and my ball didn't even get inside his. I was probably like fourteen feet. He was, you know, inside me. So I had to putt for my par-. I and I just knew that was kind of the tournament right there. I needed to make that putt to force any extra holes or whatever. I putted in an made, a good stroke at it in the Baltic off where wanted it in just a, I don't remember miss high or low, but it would just barely missed it was a a good run. But as soon as the ball missed a Cup, it, I felt like, you know, that was the end. The wind just came out of my sails, and I was really just the not devastated. But you know, I just was I was down because I felt like I just bogeyed the last hole to lose. So now I've got a face this tap in probably about eighteen inches to feet and my role at that point switch from trying to tie tournament to just trying to get out of the way because the spotlight was now his. So I, I don't even remember if I'm marked or if I just I know I didn't like hurry the putt, I win gathered myself because I was, I remember thinking. That the kind of the replay of the last couple of shots was in my mind, you know, the five iron from the fairway. It too far left the chip just quite didn't quite judge it right out of the rough. And in the putt, all that stuff was replayed in my mind as I walk into the ball, and I could feel myself like trying to focus, but I had nothing. And then my stroke was just wouldn't even a stroke. It was kind of like a a wave at the ball, and then the volume miss the whole, you You know. know. And that was part of the shame thing that we're talking about right the the putt didn't matter to me at the time except that I was trying to get out of the chiefs way, and I just missed it really tiny putt with the world watching in that part was like an injury to my psyche. That's why I wanted to go there. Yeah, yeah. So that that was tough. And then to be honest routine, what he did in the next two minutes really didn't really hurt me that much more. It just kind of gave me almost like a wry smile like seriously. So retrieve, you know, after I've tapped in for my double routine hits his ten or twelve thirty putt about foot and a half past two feet past and misses the same. But. So now turns into situation where if I just tat mine in, you know, I would have tied and we would have gone to play off the next day as it was. He played Mark Brooks in a playoff the next day in one and I was in the locker room with Brooks watching that when all happened and it was it was such a Yuri feeling. He didn't know whether to celebrate, you know, he thought he was literally zipping up his travel bag. I mean, he was. He was down the road. Yeah, no. But I mean there's so much to unpack there. First of all, it says something about you that your generous person that all you want to do is give routine the stage. I mean, you're still your grind. There's a lot of money at stake on there's Ryder Cup points. I mean, every putt means something, but in that moment you just said, you know, I was going to give this guy his moment. So I mean, that's a general soul. Yeah, but don't give me credit for that because that's just golf that anybody in that position would have done same thing too. Once you felt like the term was over in the winter was about to finish up the right thing to do in pro golf is to go ahead and bow out and give him the stage. And so that's not generosity..

"Would have ever learned it without it when I talked to people and I tell them what I do and their general sports ends, but they're not into golf golf is so boring. I see. Are you kidding me? The human drama is riveting. I mean, you're all alone out there. You have no teammates to hide behind you just alone on this stage and as opposed to other sports where it's so much about reaction and speed. The balls just sitting there mocking you. Nothing happens until you make it happen. And that's why it's the most fascinating game because it's so internal and I've always been struck in the past, you've used words like fear and shame. I mean your candidate about the mental battle in how deep it goes, and there's a vulnerability in talking about those. Well, let's. One of the things that I learned from Waddington on subsequently talking to other other guys that are in that similar field, not necessarily like psycho analysts, but you know, not necessarily sports psychologists either, but somewhere in that realm is that the only way you're really going to ever make progress forward is by really opening up and being totally vulnerable in that setting. If you're holding on anything, you're just gonna hold back and you're not gonna ever make any progress. So I learned early on that be invulnerable is one of the things I needed practice first of all, because I wasn't very good at it. And that's when you hear me talk about things like shame and fear and feeling, you know, scared or week or anxious. It's partly me practicing. The exercises that I've learned over the years and that conditioning myself, that there's nothing to be frayed of when you want when you talk about things like that because everybody feels in fact, it's a way to sort of identify and connect with other people because a lot of times people hear it and they say like, wow, I feel like that too. And in in a way, you know, I'm I want to help myself but also want to help other people too. I mean, I feel like I'm placed here in this role in my life in this world to make an impact on other people to and help help others. And, and this is a, it's something that I think that it's it's kind of an uneducated landscape for a lot of people. Absolutely. I mean, I could think about playing times in a match on the last hole. I'd rather chip it to ten feet than before, because if you missed a ten footer at half, the expectations, the closer you gotta make it, and it's such a weird mental battle. Subtitle it is. And the what you just described is basically the the that was what I would call the low hanging fruit for me. That same sort of feeling that, you know, I, I was afraid on short putts. I was afraid it's gonna miss one because what would the people think? What would I think about myself? What would it feel like actually already knew what it would feel like because I've done it plenty of times then before and since then and it doesn't feel good, but I was afraid of that feeling, you know, that's low hanging fruit. But then once we started talking about that, it uncovered a lot more layers and we got higher up on the tree, so to speak. And it was it. It was something that I started out really wanting to. Increase my performance in get my play better, but what the result was beyond the performance thing was that it was something I was pretty fascinated and I, it's just something that I, I like investigating about myself and helping others..

"You know, those sort of the psychoanalyst in some ways in what did you learn in through that self-discovery? That helped us a golfer will when I started talking to Preston Waddington who he's his technical title, I think for job will be he's a psychotherapist. So you know he's a his job for for some of your listeners remain not had therapy or anything like that is, you know, you kind of go in. And you talk through some of the things that bother you. If your frayed of things you want things, you're nervous about things that you love anything. Just things that have a huge impact on your life in positive or negative way, and you kinda dig down deep into your past and kinda try to figure out like environmentally what may have helped sort of form those beliefs, opinions, you know, whatever. And so it helped to kind of uncover some of my. I guess my fears on the golf course, it's pretty normal. I think for someone to be a little bit afraid they get into certain situations out here playing off, especially when you're new because you feel like the whole world is sort of like unpacking your whole, you know you're unpacking your life and. You kind of over overdue that you think that it's happening the way more than it is? I think that's pretty natural. And in my case, I was I was just dealing with some of that anxiety that I felt on the course about performance. You know, trying to live alone expectations, and I had one early on in my career, and I was starting to wonder why? Why did not want again? You know what's wrong might not. Was it a fluke? You know, I, I didn't want to be the one hit wonder right. There was just a lot of things. And so in my case I've always I've never been satisfied with just acting a question in receiving an answer, like marching orders. I always want to know why is that? Just doesn't apply to golf in several other things in my life to Iowa kind of person and Dr Waddington kind of helped me walk through the whys of why felt certain ways. Why was out playing golf in the first place? You know what my goals were and. Break it down into more simplistic kind of terms and and helped me get into a place where I could think things through and and break down the way. I was feeling listen to the way my body was sending me signals and and use it to keep me a little bit calmer under pressure and turned into better results. This this is deep stuff you're talking about childhood trauma and. Yeah. Well, I mean to use that term loosely. But I mean, yeah, to to say that Stewart Cink had childhood trauma would be kind of a gross overstatement because I mean, I. I all I can say is I had a childhood and just like we all had Dr Warrenton. One of his little phrases used to always use with being others was that his definition of a dysfunctional family is a family with more than one person. And so I think that we all kind of fit into that category in one way or another and so like it or not, you know the your upbringing and it's not just your family. Also, it's your environment, your your friends. Everything comes together in one giant bowl of soup, and it. It kind of helps you forge these beliefs opinions about the world and the by the way you see things about the way things see you. And so it's not always a real perfect match with reality. Yeah, that's where could be difficult and anyone who's ever gone through kind of serious therapy, you have to really examine yourself and most people don't wanna do that. They just want to keep living in blissful ignorance. So yeah, and and it's easy to do that, and but I'm thankful for golf because without golf, I probably would have never taken that kind of step. But golf means a lot to me and I felt like I was hindering my performance on the golf course with some of these feelings inside felt like I needed to go investigate if I had been doing another job. Than I have a feeling, I probably wouldn't have done investigation and so golf, that's just one of the many benefits that golf has had for me is that it's taught me so much about myself that I just don't know how I.

"I see that up close. It's not easy. I mean, it's it's definitely not. You know, the most difficult challenging profession to take on mean it's if you can do it. It's great work. Yeah. And I, I love playing golf out here the travelling bit. To me, I, I don't mind it. I kind of enjoy the actually the travel itself. You know the the moving around, not sure I love the being away from home that much. You know. The dogs and the kids out of the house. Now they're empty nest, but we're empty nest, but it's it's a, it's a fun life to chase the little white ball and compete in in really, it's all about challenging yourself to see, you know what, what level you can you can play and so that that's a great part of this game. There are some downsides in, I'm sure my wife would bring up a few of the downsides traveling, but you know, overall, we don't have much complain about it's a, it's a pretty pretty nice world out here in we see a lot of the world which is a another nice bonus. Absolutely. You had kids when you were still in college? Right? Yeah. And so most most guys, you know, they're traveled little ones years already in college already. Mine are in college. One is a fourth year at Georgia Tech in one graduated in two thousand seventeen from Clemson. So he's out in the workforce. Manageable actual j. o. b. which is it is it's great. It's it's kind kinda weird. Now my wife says, you know, she's always talking about how to kind of what you alluded to a minute ago. Like she feels like she had this fulltime job while the kids were at home, and she was like, mother, hen. She was the CEO of our household while I was out here travelling and playing golf, and now the kids are gone and she's kind of left with now what was my role? And I keep telling her, you know, we're, yeah, you raise the kids for a long time in did a great job of doing that. But now you know, we're just raising adults just because they get older doesn't mean you start raising them. We'll raise them till they're sixty years old more. And it's just all about us providing that well leadership as one thing, but there's so many different facets of being a parent that just developing change in evolve over time that you just never stopped raising them. Lisa has a degree in molecular biology. Yeah, I just sort of how to say that molecular biology can pronounce all the syllables. Yeah. I mean, does she think about I could? I could do some research in the lab? Is that a viable option for probably not anymore because she graduated in nineteen ninety five and think it's safe to say that molecular studies. And you know. Genomics, Matt mapping the gene and all that stuff have has changed a lot in the last twenty three years. So I think what she has now is probably the basis from which she could probably go back to grad school and kind of almost start over. But that was planned. Ironically, she wanted to go into the field of of mapping the the human genes and the genome projects that were studying, like how genes work and not just for hereditary purposes, but for disease purpose and then two a half years ago, she got her diagnosis and that turned out to be one of the most important facets of her treatment is learning about her jeans and what goes wrong in certain cells in your body that into forming tumors that you know are basically kind of like a, you know, in in car sales, we have the lemon law. If it was cells, we'd have the lemon law would work on these sales to they're just defects and over over years. You get little. You get little dings in Fender benders in in Knicks on your genes. Just like you do on your car and those little nicks and and Fender benders on your genes when they reproduce they, they code themselves and they propagate those those imperfections. And that turns into cancer, if it goes wrong direction and so -ironically that she was planning to study that, and then she gave all that up to raise the children..

"Hello. This is Alan shipped. Knock back for another podcast for the knockdown. Thanks as always for listening. I'm delighted to be joined by Stewart Cink who resurgent at the age of forty five coming off a very strong showing the PGA championship and has smallness face must be feel goodbyes games that Stewart things to do in this. Sure, yeah. My pleasure. So you've been out here a long time and you you've been through a lot. Are you entering the the final act of your career or you feel like you're just you're reborn and you, you're just getting started again. Where are you kind of emotionally at this point? It's hard to say because golf has such a free form sort of characteristic about it with your career. You know, the Chevy sewer just adds extra level of vagueness to your retirement date and your age. Really it. There's not such a hard sort of fall off like there is another sports where you just reach a point where you say, okay, well, I know I'm not going to be planning more when. I'm thirty eight or you know, running back months even say, like, I know I'm not going to be the league anymore. When I'm twenty eight in golf you, you don't think that way because you can keep going, and you body never really feels like, well, at least mine has. It doesn't feel like I need to stop and really it's just gonna come down to win. I kind of get tired plan and so far that's not happening. And when you have such a nice long, fluid swing, it seems like you could do that for another fifteen years. No problem. It's funny how people always say that about my swing being nice and long and fluid and all that, but it doesn't feel that way. It feels kind of jerky in cramped up and all that. But you know, when I see it, I understand what they mean, but it doesn't always feel that way Gulf ends. No, you took a break around two thousand sixteen to care for your wife and. Obviously, that was that was a break in in golf, but also mentally Howard, how she doing. And as you come back full-time now, how are you refreshed and recharged? Have you taken away some of your your worries on the golf course? You have a larger perspective? I mean, how? How did that change you? Yeah, all those things. First of all, she's doing really well. She's passed her. She's about two and a half years now from her diagnosis, and she's gone through her chemo. She never had surgery or radiation. Just her every cases, like case one of one. So in her case, those weren't appropriate for her. She just did her chemo and she still gets treatment every three weeks. So she's stage four cancer patients, so she'll have in pretty much indefinite treatment and we don't expect that to change. So every three weeks we still go back and she gets her infusions. She has a port still, you know, she's, she's still not out of the woods, but she's doing great. She's had a tremendous response. She's in remission. You know, the way they define remission anyway. It's always different for every type of cancer that they diagnosed. But in her case, she's got a what they call a sustained remission, which is really good. She feels good for the most part. She's got low side effects, and she's traveled out here. She's out here with me almost every tournament. I think she's missed three this year, twenty four. So she's, she's she's getting tired of traveling more to get tired of a retreats, and probably. A little tired of me too, because you know, we were on the road. I was on the robot myself for basically twelve years, and she only came out to maybe two or three a year because the kids were busy at home and just was a hard to get the stars to light up where they could come out. And so we went from that to her travelling almost exclusively out here. And you know, all of a sudden there's like a lot of time with each other, and it's great to have to say goodbye, but she probably does, you know, in half seriousness kinda get tired of being out here in being tired of me. Sometimes it's not a normal life. I mean people on seat on TV and it seems so glamorous, but it's a lot of airports, hotel rooms, you know, for especially for the wives, not having structure and routine, and so it's not easy..
