There are countless stories about people driving automobiles, the most recent of which high profile Tiger Woods. He thought, apparently that he was applying brake applicant making brake application when in reality, he was applying the accelerator and that contributed to the severe impact of that crash. So it's a human potential. I think to make that kind of an error. It's a big deal, especially when you're dealing with life and death mistakes and most walks of life rather forgivable, But you think about it. Airline pilots, surgeons, law enforcement officers. The nature of the work they do has a hide likelihood of being life and death. And so that kind of a mistake, albeit without any evil intent could have extraordinary consequences. But McGinnis says If tragedies like this, they're going to be avoided. It has to be a two way street. None of this would have happened. Had this young man complied with the law. He was stopped for a traffic violation of which time the officers learned of a warrant for his arrest for carrying a firearm without the benefit of a permit, as so there is an underlying potential for violence and that prior history And and they want to take him into custody.

"tiger woods" Discussed on The Sean Hannity Show
"As we heard yesterday And mentioned at the top of the program. Yesterday tiger woods turns out that he literally shattered his tip and his favor ben and ankle. I mean pretty significant injuries at needed rods and screws and and and even the doctors and others said it was a miracle that he survived. This crash You know our friend. Jim grace i mean. Twelve time emmy award winner. That tells you everything you need to know about. Our friend jim gray. He's written this great book. I read it cover to cover talking to goats. The greatest of all time likes a brady likes of muhammad ali. Mike tyson is friends with your friends. Who had tigers you. I met him when he was seven. You told me last night. I know you told me in the past and you write about in the book correct john. Thanks for having me on Known tiger virtually You know since he was just a young a youngster. Coming up on forty years He'll be forty six so thirty nine years and just so thankful today really that He survived this crash and and while his injuries are significant. There not life threatening and while the surgeries May imperil Let's seeing him play golf Anytime soon if again we just don't know but at least it's going to be able to hug his children and and and and be able to be alive and and and continue to contribute in other ways and From where we were yesterday at this time sean to where we are today Things have gotten a whole lot better. I'll thank god. And i only wish him and his family the best you know there is this dark side of the human experience that people seem to ravel almost in other people's pain when the story broke about the the accident the first time and and the dui the first time in all these stories are coming out about tiger. And i just i. I stood back i watch. I kind of stay out of people's lives that part of or portion of people's lives. But and i don't think people really understand this if you're the greatest anything really the greatest. There's enormous pressures that. I would argue and i'm not excuse making we're all responsible for our behavior choices in life and you can't blame somebody else when you make bad choices right but at the on the other end of this fame. I don't think it's cracked up to what people think. It is at number one being the best at anything. A lot of pressure that that a lot of people might not be able to relate to or understand now they're well compensated for the for the great talents that they show us either on the football field baseball field boxing. Ring up to gone or golf course. But there's there's a real underbelly of difficulties associated with all of that. All of those gifts does that make sense. You're absolutely right. And the pressure is external and internal. The external pressure is now the social media age that we live in where every single movement is documented. You're basically on camera for your entire life or you are subject to having things said about you. And people relating instances that were never published before. So you know. Every single thing that you do is being viewed through a microscope. And then it's being transmitted amplified and every pimple becomes a mountain. Then there's the internal pressure sean Tiger woods has been tormented for years by perfection. because he's touched it but he can't grab it so he's had the perfect ground. He's had the hole in one. He's had the perfect tournament. He's won fifteen majors. But he wants to do it again. And again and again so part of that torment of wanting to be perfect creates a joyless experience. So for the fourteen of the fifteen Mass major championships. It didn't look like he was having fun. Finally to come back after not having one since two thousand eight all the way till two thousand nineteen a major. He finally let everybody in. So i write in the book talking to goats how a legend became a human okay. How a legend came back and let everybody finally share in his joy share in that experience. And if you saw the fans the patrons at augusta national when he won that tournament hit the ball in in the water on twelve and on the green and the pressure and he just knew how to do it and came up there and celebrated and then hugged his son. Charley Just like hugged him. And and then he walked down to the clubhouse and everybody was lined up and he was raising his fists and high five and then he hugged his competitors used to be he resisted his competitors because they were editors now he brought them all in so everybody shared in that so there had been a change in the way that tiger had approached things having gone from the peak to the to the ultimate valley And then back up to the top so you know when we see this happened to him yesterday and you talk about pressure. Yeah there's been a lot of internal and external pressure and it's hard to live. Julius erving said this to me the great dr j. The thirty five years ago. Sean he said. Do you know anybody who is truly successful or at the very top of their profession. That doesn't have one major quirk or flaw in their personality. Wow that's such a profound thing to say. I the i say it a little differently. I i look at the the best in these industries and in going to be honest. You're the best of what you do. Also and you've had a phenomenal career. But i see a lot of the most talented people. Their blessing is there curse. And you might say well come on you got you got. I don't know planes trains. Automobiles big house blah blah blah. But there's another side of it. You know i've also learned in my life to that. I don't care who you are where you come from the. Don't go through this life. And this this transcends socio economics in every way without struggle life i believe we're all created by god. I believe in natural rights. I believe that that these gifts that we all have our god given a good education lets us flourish and and let let's that natural talent come out and then beyond that it's it's what we choose to do the choices we make thereafter and and a lot of people make a lot of bad choices in the course of their life. What when you talk about the blessing and the curse a lot of people say. Why couldn't they get that aspect of his life right. Or why did he venture off into that. Or why is she doing this. But guess what if you alter the makeup of the brilliant and the genius and you try and tone down something or change something elsewhere. Then you're not gonna have the same result in the area which you love in the area which they have excelled in the area where they are now excellent. Because if you do that then you've altered the makeup of what they are that are allowing them to achieve excellence. So you know. Everybody doesn't always have the entire package. Who does who with who who out. There isn't is perfect. Well none of us are. We all have quirks. We all have flaws. We all have works. We all make mistakes and we try and become better tomorrow than we were yesterday. So what's going on here and in every single case every every person that you profiled in your great book talking to goats greatest of all times all these incredible experiences you've had talking to the greatest athletes ever in their top of their profession. It's interesting this other side of them. I mean when you tell the story about mike. Tyson and mike tyson. When he's in jail and he sends you back this letter that he allowed you then later to reveal you to no four was a private letter or whether or not you could disclose it and he let you disclose it pretty profound well. When he was convicted of rape and he went for his sentence he wrote me a five page letter at arrived at my house inexplicably. It was opened by the indiana youth penitentiary. Because all.

"Than he did ended up being. Donald trump. the governor's that got it right. It wasn't cuomo with his big power points and gavin newsom. Now it ended up being people. Like ron disentis in florida with a much higher elderly population and he the one thing that remained consistent and he stayed most dedicated to protecting the elderly and it worked vaccine distribution. A buddy of mine in florida got at a local public grocery store. What the hell am i doing living in the state of new york. I don't know out of my mind. I need to renegotiate my contract like yesterday. I so we got a lot to get to so when when we were in the election season and i started playing these montages about joe biden. These truths to be created and women are created equal endowed. By the the thing all you know the thing the thing the thing thing and then you know we choose truth over. Facts is that means super thursday and it just got bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and i said all throughout the campaign. You know he's in the candidate protection program hiding in his basement bunker. I was telling you the truth. You had big tech. Protecting any negative stories was a pullout the last week that showed that about one in six voters. That voted for biden likely would have voted differently. Had they known what big tack was covering up for. Joe and zero experience hunter. Okay well that was an effort at at protecting joe biden. Because they're they're one commonalities their raging psychotic hatred of all things donald trump. and then. I said this this guy. He's lost you. Ever had a fastball. He lost it isn't even a change up or slow pitch at this point. The guy that. I saw four years ago when he left office or you go back ten years and you play a tape. Tapeh joe biden. It is a dramatic decline in terms of. He looks weak. And i'm allowed to have my own observations right and they didn't say much during the campaign as i often referred to joe as weak and frail and struggling cognitively and i stand behind it today all of a sudden he becomes president. All these articles start showing up the hate. Hannity crowd out there which is pretty much every second every minute every hour of every day which i don't care about but you know hannity you. Can you believe he called. Joe biden weak and frail. Well let me be very blunt here bernie. Sanders doesn't look weak and frail to me. No he had a heart attack but you know what people recover from heart attacks. He seems like he's got it all together. He's pushing his radical socialism. Redistributionism state is authoritarianism as passionately. As he's ever done. I don't see it. Single change bernie sanders from ten years ago. None same energy level. Same passion is. He's equally as articulate in an pushing his liberal views and donald trump's around the same age skies got more energy than fifty guys thirty years old. It's insane. I don't see that in joe i see that. He's weak and frail. And i see that he is struggling cognitively so the you know the latest example. I mean this guy. Pretty bizarre is you know. He's in the middle of an interview. He loses place and then admits that he always carry around the cheat sheet. Listen to this. I promise you we're together and i think that you know but the idea that over five hundred carry carter me every day with a number of folks who have been affected by the as of yesterday or five hundred thousand seventy one people have died from this my head. What my handlers. Give me a card. It's kind of easy to remember the number. We've lost a half a million people in this country from covert just like when he was giving out the statistics by the summer. We're going to give through going to have three hundred. Americans vaccinated by summer over the summer. Let me be clear. And then he says it again with the same mistake that three hundred americans will get the vaccine on. This is like an every day event with him. Now i'm not making a medical diagnosis. I don't know anything about joe. Except my observations that he looks weak and he looks frail and that he's he's struggling cognitively in ways that i never saw before i mean what what's on the no card is does he print out his name and address and contact information for for joe biden. His wife. you know my address is sixteen hundred. Pennsylvania avenue for ever gets lost. You know it's it's a little scary to me. And i'm gonna tell you something. Don't think for a second a couple of things. I'm worried about because there's a lot of evil on the world stage a lot of hostile regimes hostile actors. He could start with putin and russia. You can go to president. She and china you can go to the malls in iran and start their other countries. We're going to be making these countries rich as we now get out of the energy businesses and in the meantime americans are out of work but will be legalizing. You know eleven. Twelve fifteen million illegal immigrants. That'll be competing for the few jobs that show up that are available as a result of the pandemic intra-korean shutdowns and businesses closing their doors. Forever and rebuild in the economy so now that's just gonna drive wages down but with such callousness in a stroke of a pen would take away career high paying career jobs with which skills skills specific set of of of trained into of trained fellow. Americans iky kills me that they're losing their job. It just the callousness by which we want you to get another union job with a with benefits. Okay where tell me where. I how do i get that job at the same pay with the same benefits. Now that i've given up working. What thirty years of my life. And and i want to send my kids to college and i'd like to have a little bit more than social security my bank account when i finally retire on how crap. I just bought a new house in a new truck. it's killing would just callousness the whole everybody. That speaks about it. The green new deals more important. No it's not in the more important to them. It's not and this is now what's happening. You know now. Here's a strange thing that happen here. You've got dozens of house. Democrats want biden. No we have a constitution. I know joe biden doesn't even want to factor in that. We supposedly coequal branches of government. We do have this other branch of government known as the legislative branch he had one said and we played it many times that he's not a dictator. I need the votes. I gotta get the votes. Well he's not getting the votes with all the executive actions he's pushing forward and now there's a little thing called the constitution. We have one commander in chief. That's the president. Now you got about three dozen house democrats signing a letter asking biden..

Usually we do our second. Show the week so Since you guys have all been writer is you. You know you wanna hear our take reactions to what goes on in the world golf especially tiger woods impossible for us not to way So again we're not. It's not to be the ad reads We're just gonna kinda talk about get our knee-jerk reaction and then more news will break will. Hopefully better news will unfold over the next day or two. And then we'll put out the official kind of show the week but About a shook it up. I would say is i've been for something not directly related to my family. You know since. Kobe and before then. I didn't even know what i would say that. So it's been very shitty couple of hours. It's just a gut punch like. I think it's not settled infrared. You're just like thinking of tiger. What he's going through like my thoughts her to his himself his family And just praying that. He's okay in one facet or another. You know like there's different ways to you. Know to get potentially back to healthy. And i just hope that he is. I hope he You know i'm kinda torn for words of how i feel right now but it's super super somber. Very much brought me right back to kobe When that happened just a gut punch you totally. Didn't think that was possible. And then it hits you in the face and then it gets more real every second just before we came on here. I did see that report and again. This is the internet the way that it works when something awful like this happens is that so many reports. Come out at the same time. You don't know what's really going on. You don't what to believe. But what i did see i don that. His injuries were non life threatening which is great news if that report is accurate. We're all obviously hoping for that. But yeah it's just. I agree with with both you. I don't think it's really sunk in yet. I obviously no one woke up this morning expecting to hear anything any news like this so when it happens you really just you gotta give it a little bit of time to process. I know we wanted to hop in on here and just give our reactions talk about it amongst ourselves. But it's just we're going to learn a lot more about about what's going on and hopefully things are all positive but it's just a very very strange day in the world of golf in the world of sports and just in the world of you know being human be totally It's a it's a weird day..

"Let's move forward on the timeline. This is where it gets good for me, and this is where you don't really have a lot to say. Because in May of twenty nineteen tiger misses the cut at bethpage black at the PGA championship only does he missed the cut, but I'm Thursday. Brooks kept beats him within the same group by nine shots, and then on Friday he beats him by eight shots like this. The Guy who just won the Masters Golf's greatest stage Yada, Yada Yada. Yada is the different golfer is a different gopher, not more than six weeks later five weeks later, and not only that. During this timeframe we saw footage of tiger from Gulf TV. He had a couple of media days with them. He looked weird. He looked weirdly rigid. He looked like he was kind of getting around the place. He eventually got some swings in with them, and it could just kinda showed us that like off the course. This guy isn't as Stable as the dude at the masters who risk raised both hands and fist pump the sky. There is more to the story here. That's how I think about May and June of last year is that? I don't know this guy threw everything into a tournament, and there are repercussions of that for a forty three year old we're just talking about the PGA championship here. Just the PGA I mean Look Obviously Tiger showings get magnified because he's tiger. But the fact that he didn't play tournament golf for so long, and then we just saw on that one time. At of course that could not have been set up any worse for him. I you're reading into it too much people read into that too much. The only thing it made me questions whether bethpage black is really even a worthy wandering champion. The hottest tab just. Hours. And have him. You know look so out of sorts. Maybe it's not the problem with the player. Maybe it's the problem more with the the setup that is oh, absolutely egregious, because you would think a guy who hits it pretty long and is one of the best ball. Strikers in the world would fare really well at bethpage black, but. I digress from that one year ago. Taylor plays in the memorial tournament. He bounces back from bethpage black finish. T nine right, but that's t nine. That's ten strokes behind Patrick..

"Building a new set of wedges. That sounds pretty awesome. I mean who wouldn't gearhead? Who wanted to do that? I don't know how much longer our careers are. I love doing. This still thought about that at all. No my father asked me not long ago. How much longer are you going to do this? And I'm like a while he goes. That's what Tiger Woods has had people in his past his former caddy and his former coach that he doesn't stay in touch with at all people in tigers past sometimes. Don't stay there forever. But Has Mike Taylor stayed there. He is has he gotten his do. I. I mean I don't personally don't think he's gotten as do. I hope this story shed some more light on on. Who Might Taylor is? Because I feel like it's important to point out the people and Tiger's life that helped him succeed Hank in Butch in the instructors are a huge part of Tigar's career at different points in his career. Obviously but but Mike was was a big part of his career during his Nike Golf Days. And I feel like it's important to highlight these people who helped make the tools for him. You know there's the thing that I that I believe kept Mike. Within the inner circle is bike was never afraid to Kinda dishes back tiger. Tiger's you can always tell when tiger liked you because he would kind of needle you in Mike Was Totally. Find giving it right back. Mike told a story of when he was grinding. A Wedge for commercial. Now if you ever watch a golf commercial in you see Bob. Key for instance grinding a wedge on a wheel that wheel which has a really rough surface to it if you jam that wedge against that wheel it's GonNa make the sparks fly now. You would never do that. Because you're going to ruin a wedge. Mike he gently kisses the wedge in certain spots to kind of give a just the right amount of bounce just the right amount of hustle transition. This is not what you do for for television. You want sparks. So Tiger was in the build shop for one of these commercials and Mike is Grinding a wedge on the wheel making the sparks fly and Tiger looks at him and says wait. Was that one of my wedges and Mike Bite basically dead pants. Of course it is and tigers is get wide as saucers invite just keeps a straight face and afterwards he finds out that bikes joking but again pike wasn't afraid to kind of have these these kind of fun interactions with Tiger. The time you know he has it he. I asked him. He hasn't spoken to tiger. And a little while. But you know he said that Tiger Tiger's still speak about golf equipment. Whenever Tiger has questions about equipment he reaches out to Mike. They still have that relationship even now with him at tailor-made and again I think that bond was forged early on because Mike just wanted to make tiger happy and make them good golf clubs. He was never in all the guy. There was never anything else there except for for Mike just wanting to help tiger be the best that could be. I love that I also love that. You called their bond forged nice little golf club Pun to wrap up this week's drop zone. Thanks John Wall for joining us and thanks to you for listening. We'll bring you another fun story next week right here on the drop zone..

"Again. If you're if you're somebody who's deepen the gear culture you know who might Taylor is. He would say he's a little bit of a of a cult hero if you've been lucky enough to meet him it's probably been at some sort of press junket a grinder grinds clubs for a living but he is literally but he's the. Kinda guy that likes to do the work. He doesn't like the accolades he usually always tries to pass him off to the player. Even though you might not know who he is some of the greatest golfers in the world relied on Mike Taylor for their success. I like golf because it's process. It's a process that it starts with a beginning and I got to see the final result. It's not where I just make one little part of this. You know you're you had some control of how a number of components ended up creating a valuable tool for someone if you see Tiger Woods. Winning Taylor has played an important role in the tools that he's using to those targets. So what role is he actually playing like? I don't see him. I don't see him get mentioned. I don't know of him until you write the story. Like what role is he playing? So so Mike Taylor is what we like to call a master clip maker so before the iron had ever receives the stamping on the back for for the manufacturer or any sort of tweaks to the top line when you look down at the golf club the line on the top of the club or the sole how place you the turf. Mike is the guy who takes those blank virgin heads in gives them that personality that the tour players at Tiger Woods wants Tiger Woods wants personality in his golf clubs. What does that mean so so tiger woods may be the most meticulous in Personality Professional Golfer in the history of the game. I think I it has to look good in a plane. Okay so the next one is how does it feel when I walk my hands of the only? That's touching off club and I've been trained to trust my hands hit shots you know normally throughout a couple and then he find a couple and you kind of tweak them a little bit and then Either that day or the next day on whether the topline is. Is You know half a millimeter tube. We're talking tenths of millimeters thick. He can hit one shot with a golf club until you immediately whether it's interacting with turf the way it should be. I've watched tiger during testing sessions. Hit One ball in automatically say well that went to high automatically knows that the center of gravity within this club is off. This is this is why it's so difficult to work with Tiger Woods. Because he is so precise he knows exactly what he wants and it takes a very special person to give him the tools that he's looking for but tire can look down at an iron and he can tell you if something's off is so precise he wants and it takes a very special person to give him the tools that he's looking for and Mike is that Guy. You've got such an innate sense of ability to grind and have me tell tell him what. I want and have him created this arcane antastic. He's one hundred percent that guy. So how does he become that guy? Well that that there's an interesting story there ever body when you mentioned that ball striking tigers ball striking that okay. It's not necessarily of what it looks like from a distance. Looks like when you're close enough that you hear it different just a beautiful.

Wall is the equipment editor at Gulf magazine. Jonathan what is lifelike as our equipment? Guru? I guess it depends on the week. I think there was. There was a point in time within the industry before I entered when equipment was kind of set for a certain time of the year it was usually end of the year right before the PGA Merchandise Show. A lot of the manufacturers would release new product. It is not like that anymore. It's it's pretty much year round the new. Tv series irons are something different. It's why the G. Four. Ten drivers engineered with movable weights to help. You hit more fairways. And you're constantly seeing new gear being released whether it's on tour whether it's to the public it is it's exhausting but it is. It's still a lot of fun.

"How are you today? I'm doing well how are you? I'm good so tell me what it is that you need to share with you. It's made two thousand. Three Tiger Woods has won. Seven of the last fourteen majors played. He's swimming in AD deals. But it's one particular idea from Tom. Par a creative director at McCann. Erickson that sticks out. How cool would it be to see tiger Interact and have a real experience and I actually wrote down his little signs that said Tiger snakes on him. Uni Hits the ball with some regular joes. Maybe they play for a car. Maybe they have lunch. That's the seat of the idea. Tiger Woods will show up to a filled with unsuspecting golfers. And see how they react and crew spent weeks scouting a dozen Orlando Golf courses and they settle on one par three the Twelfth Hole Legacy Golf Club. One of those golfers was Beverly Retina. It was a rainy morning But when we got to club that we were told in the pro shop that we were gonNA have to tee off on the back then because we had had some rain the night before. Thought anything about it so we get to number ten and there is a promotion that something that appears to be a promotion going on the T box. I believe at that point. They gave us a dozen golf balls and they just s goes to be patient and we had to something indicating when things were happening. It wasn't anything that alarm just to the point. Where like do I need to call my lawyer?.

"Unreal and a lot of this book then focuses around the two thousand nineteen masters which is such a crowning achievement in his comeback. Are there any particular that you were excited to get? More texture about are really paint and more complete picture on. Well I think he does extraordinary things on the golf course that in the grand scheme of things get lost for instance. Don't I will pose this question to you since you're such a Golfer yourself and and then Affleck won. I think it's the second round he hits. Hits a tee shot into the trap eighteen. And and and the pins. I don't know where the penis but there's a big lip there. Have you played Augusta National? Yes so you know How many people in the world you think there are that can hit a seven iron outer that trap and onto the green. I mean it is such an athletic feat. Just be able to do that. Maybe there's one hundred people in the world. Maybe there's more than that. There aren't too many in their forties. Who can do it so one of the things I'm trying to do is take a really intense. Look at some of the remarkable things he did in the two thousand eighteen masters that that the public would know about his foot slips on thirteen foot slipped. Arkalyk Sean sock and you and I have talked about that and still he still his tee shot magically winds up in the ferrying. Adar and away. We were talking about the eighty-one Masters earlier and guys in fairy woods earns into that curious hitting hitting an eight aren't so when one of the fun things is to is to go deep and some things that would have gotten lost over over time Just any number number of shots in the beyond that. Just some of the quieter moments There a thing on the draw on on the driving range would call. You know the practice with the law. Football on the On the Wednesday of the tournament were there comparing Pit Shots how you play pitch and help pick shots or different Augusta national and If you're observing a night talk later about people who who knew what the conversation was? You could see tiger spirit rising that they were seeing enthusiasm. At a tiger elath abolishing enthusiasm tiger. He had not seen in years and who around that can pick up as well. There was a little private conversation between Tiger and Bernhard Langer's caddy So what I've tried to do is is go deep on moments that were public and go do you have a moments that were in public and The the the the Tuesday night Champions dinner would be another example And try to bring the reader in. I think as we try to do as reporters tried to bring the reader to a place where we have been lucky enough to go that He or she. The reader may not be well likely. He's not likely have to go and present them with a interesting world. Honor if you could run me through very briefly some of the people that you talked to for this book well just that that comes to mind quickly now would be You know in a person wouldn't be well known would be someone like burn. Her language are caddy Terry Halt People who have watched tiger his whole life as Nick Faldo and Johnny Miller have I was. I was really astounded at Faldo in particular How much he cared and how much he knew how much she observed about tire. But it's not surprising when you think that The target when that first masters in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven and that fouled. It was the defending champion. He put the jacket on. Untie your shoulders and I was getting near the end for For them for Greg Norman. That that whole generation really in a way and he's seen everything that followed after that. Johnny Miller was there covering us amador's he saw the whole thing unfold Another person that people would know. Bobby Jones is a grandson. Who's a psychologist? Is Bob Jones as well? Dr Bob Johns and So he sees he seemed tigers whole career unfold through the prism of his own experience in his own life. And also you know being a psychologist being therapist interested in in the in the human equation What it means to be human being but also being really knowledgeable about his grandfather's experience So there's There's a man from Uganda named James Bossa who is now a An assistant pro at a club where we're tiger playing The data Miller golf course in Orange County so people from all sorts of different walks of life the had an insight that was new to me and I hope new to a reader. That would try to explain a tire finally. Is there any one thing you would want readers to take away or really any way that you think? Readers should begin to understand tiger woods. Well that's Great Dylan. I think the this sounds grandiose and it may be. What I'm saying is not true but I hope it's true. I think you look at Tiger Woods his life and you look at this game that we love and you realize how much free will we all have how much to to what degree we can control our own destiny You can work. Whatever it is that you're doing you can. If you choose to. You can work harder and it. You can choose to work hard on your relationships you can choose. You can choose to try to understand yourself and others more. I think tiger has done then zone life. I don't think there's any realistic expectation that any person can become tiger woods. I don't believe that thing is if you dream it will become true. I think the lesson Tiger Woods is what are you going to do in your own life to dig deep to get better at something because Tiger Woods has always been about trying to get better and when it can't get better at least try to hold onto what he has rose long as he can. Which is I think really what he's doing right now but never give up. This is a so given. You always fight them giving up some equations focused on that and keep fighting. Let's just part of the deal. We wake up every morning and always challenges the fighting and I think that's great. Leave it Michael. Thank you so much for your sympathetic reading of the book. It's the second life Tiger Woods by Michael Bamberger. Thanks them. That's going to do it for this week's edition of the drop zone. This episode was produced by Lee Finer thankfully next week. We're back to the story from Augusta national a tale of life and death at Amen Corner. You can find that right here on the drop zone..

"Out of that was. I can't continue on this path so once you make that decision in your life. I can't continue on this path. The only other door leaves is another path and I think that's what he did. Tell me a little bit about your reporting on that specific subject Because it's always a little bit of a fine line when you're talking to police officers about things that have happened. You Open actually talking about this incident Matt Palladino Second Year Road Patrol officer for Jupiter. Police Department is featured. What's that like going in to get that information? Well you know. I hung around the Jupiter Police Department and I talked to police officers there and I got not in the exact squad. Car that A patrol car the patrol vehicle will be the correct term that tigers but one just just like it. I sat in the back. We're tiger sat and I realized I happen to be claustrophobic but just to be you know the windows. Don't roll down. There's a cage in front of you. There's no seats. It's just a hard piece of plastic and here you are. You're tiger woods. You are the most famous powerful people in the world and you're being detained you know you're almost like you're being detained you've Because of your own behavior that night you've lost a right that we all hold to be to be precious so to answer your question so I tried to understand the experience of that night through the Jupiter Police Department I went to the to the Palm Beach County Jail. Where he where he spent where he was incarcerated for for brief period. And Try to imagine what that experience was like my editor who I think you made no Joe Ferrari Adler from Simon Schuster Wh- one of his one of his notes to me in writing the book was. What's it like to be Tiger Woods? I'm good remember that for the rest of my life. I hope his writer and applied to everybody. That right about. I tried to write with empathy matter no matter whom writing about I don't think you can have enough empathy as a reporter But I tried to understand just tried to imagine what it would be like to be tiger woods on that Memorial Day evening coming up eighteen at the two thousand nineteen masters Being with his kids after having a chance to win the the open championship at Carnoustie and not getting it done. What's it like to be tiger woods in the in the culture that you grew up in Dillon To be a celebrity is to be in my opinion almost turned into a caricature something. That's carboard some that you can discuss et you. Can you can play any words. You wanted the person on the internet or through twitter instagram. Whatever it might be because they are not a person. There so famous in untouchable am behind behind some kind of Gat- that we can say whatever you will ever we want. I don't have that view at all at Bam particularly try to do in. This book is try to always remember. The target is a son. He's a father. He's a golf professional He runs a foundation. He runs a business. He has people depending on them. He's dependent on other people is a human being answer and actually deserves to be reported about as such. Have you found any of his reflections since save Memorial Day twenty seventeen Or since this comeback to be especially revealing very interesting question and I think that's where we as your woods observers after really retail use. So you have to look really carefully language so late I may be totally wrong about what am I to say? I never heard. Tiger Woods actually use any form of the word gratitude until two thousand eighteen? Maybe he did and I just missed it but what I notice in two thousand eighteen two thousand nineteen he does actually use the word gratitude In in its various forms and there are very few words more powerful than that When he showed up to to receive tigers always been good about showing up to receive awards. by and large. But we'd often just mouth platitudes. You're at the at the golf writers dinner last year. When he spoke he he won the Hogan Award as a player overcome an obstacle and he spoke without notes from the heart about his experience. A lot to me To be able to receive this award after its namesake what Mr Hogan went through and what he did and what he was able to accomplish. Post is truly remarkable and just to have my name on a list of recipients like this is is truly special and to all the recipients here for all the work you have done and either serving the game participating in the game growing the game of golf. I say congratulations to all of you. These are very special people in this room and I'm so honored to be here. Thank you very much. I don't know that he would be capable of doing that. Memorial Day. Two thousand seventeen. So you have to look for these little moments and see how much they actually reveal. And then you you touch on a few different things that I think The Tiger camp would probably not love To be out in the open. I think you handle them with empathy as you said but this traffic incident in two thousand seventeen Tigers run INS with rules in two thousand thirteen and then also has connections to performance enhancing drugs and or a cast of characters involved in that entire world What what are your considerations when you're going through those topics and figuring out how much to focus on each one as it relates to Tigers Life. Greek Russian Dylan and by. I think this is true for every person on this earth your own life is a movie it is a novel it has ups and downs. It is not a straight line. It has arc the arc from me of Tigers from. Us Open two thousand eight right through Memorial Day. Two thousand seventeen is descent and part of it is there's a desperation to tiger And we see him. We we see him responding to his poor shots. Poor play with more desperation than he did as a young player. That's unusual usually get more mill overtime. But I think that idea of getting to eighteen or whatever was that was in his mind that he wanted to achieve it seemed it seemed more outsized more important to him and he responded with more emotion sometimes sometimes inappropriately just as a quick aside. The profanity didn't bother me at all. I've never known any high strung person in any you work who didn't use profanity. I think just it just shows how much you want something. But the spitting did bother me. I think that's disgusting. Habit It if you want to spit discreetly. That's one thing but to spin on a golf course with some other guys golf ball. I've never really could get underway but that was one of the things Whether used performance enhancing drugs or not. I don't know I don't pretend to know but as you know. Don There's a chapter in the book about a guy who purports I think credibly To have a sold performance enhancing drugs to someone who says they're going to deliver them to tiger. It's not a smoking gun. But it's it's warm ish But I would say that's part of the Descent period as well and then these episodes where he's not phidias about The rules Speak to characters. So I'm not really concerned at all about what Tiger Tiger's camp is going to say. Oh why is he going down this road? I'm writing this for the reader and want the reader to understand why I think that whole long period between two thousand nine right through two thousand seventeen including Rehab experienced in two thousand ten another one two thousand seventeen a mental therapy Rehab for like a better phrase I'm trying to explain what the roots are of it. Trying to give the reader a glimpse into my take on the Ark of Tiger's life which may or may not be corrected but it is my take and this may be too personal a question but did you get. What is the feedback like when you tell Tiger and his team? Hey I'm writing this book about Tiger and then do you continue to try to get them involved. I told Mark Steinberg Tigers agent about this book early on. He's never been interested in engaging in any conversation really meaning flayed every once in a while. There's there's been exception to it Tigers are very small camp. He had a A right hand press person named Glenn Greenspan whom we both know who who is now out anyhow But yes I tried to keep them into the loop to to agree that I thought was appropriate and responsible But it was. It was a one way street and then do you think that the the new tiger the second life tiger the guy we've seen the last couple of years How much is he different from the tiger? That was before. How much is he just presenting himself differently? Or is there a difference anyway? You know I can't answer the question honestly and would like to know I would like to know. How much media? Coaching actually has right now. Of course the kind of thing that the camp would We'd never give up. I know it's become popular especially among casual fans to say. Oh He's such a different guy now. I don't think he's quote. Oh such a different guy. Now I think he's a person who's evolving as you would hope that that we all are and I think it's been gradual incremental And subtle welcome back I should. I say welcome.

"And so to be clear in these kinds of offers from whatever you. WanNa call it. Twenty fourteen to twenty seventeen. Say you didn't think that Tiger Woods would come back to the level of winning multiple events or certainly winning a major. I really didn't I didn't see it at all so then once that started to happen. This made you more and more inclined to keep writing and keep thinking about it. Yes that is you know the most insightful thing about tiger woods. I think that I've ever heard from Jack. Nicklaus which you know in a nutshell would be. You can never discount tiger woods in any way he will always surprise you He will reinvent himself. He will not stay down. You know. He's secretary at he's Babe Ruth. He's Larry Bird you know. Name your iconic athlete. He's one of the in the history of sport when he's down he will rise back up and even when you think. Oh He's not coming back you sean. What that would nicklaus said is correct and that is a. It's been a thrill for me to be able to cover and write about it since he's a teenager and And for you and I both in and others who tried to write about him it's It's the ultimate challenge to try to figure out how it is that he's done what he's done once. You've decided to write a book about Tiger Woods. What is the first and most difficult hurdle? Well there's so many different ways that Dylan is you know. He's an unknowable person. Very contained person He doesn't give up that much his interviews for me not for others for a few others can't get him. I can't get them. One one on one Even if you can't get him one on one there's only I think so deep he's going to be willing to let you go into what he's actually thinking as soon so that would be. That would be the that would be the starting point that strikes me as the biggest challenge. But I guess also The highest point of potential right. People don't know everything they want to know about him. So then they're intrigued to know more. Well I think that's true and and it is. You know there are. There are two books that I would put. If someone's GonNa start reading books about tiger woods interested in there are two books I would put ahead of this one. I would be hanged. Canis book that he wrote my friend. Diaz the big myths because it gets inside Tiger head as a golfer and you and Which really no other book does and Haney saw at very close range at close range than almost anybody. Except for maybe earl and his father earl woods and Emba Charman Then the second book would be the Jeff Benedict arm contain book. It's about graffiti of Tiger called. I think tiger but what contain and Benedict's book did was stop at Two thousand eighteen So it's a very thorough biography and very important biography. Read if you're interested about tiger woods but only go so far so I feel like I'm sort of picking up where they left off and tiger has said and talking about his new forthcoming autobiography said that lots of things written about him in the past have contained Miss Truths are. I remember exactly the wording that he used. Do you think it's fair to say that? A lot of the writing about tiger over the years has been untrue or unfair no. I don't think that at all I think that particular sentence. I wish I had in front of me right now. was offensive offensive to To our colleagues Bob Hiring comes to mind. Doug Ferguson Steve McCarron crafts you know really committed reporters who are out there all the time trying to be as accurate as they possibly can and I don't know tiger meant it as a slight to them. I don't imagine that he did because I think he's got a lot of respect in in good report with with those named and others as well but I don't think there's any other way to read that he probably feels on some level that that is true that when Johnny Miller says this is where tigers trying to do with that shot and and Tiger might very honestly be saying well actually Johnny was trying to do this But that's part of what the reporters do is is look at something and give it their best possible interpretation And the and the the listener the reader has to be really sort of just intelligent enough to know that it's through the prism of that person all right so take me then into the reporting process You've said it's it's hard to get one on one access for Tiger Woods. First of all. He declined to really sit down with you for this book. Which I'm sure is not a surprise right. You know having read them out tiger for a lot of years now. Tigers greatest gift to a reporter is what he does on the golf course His body language his remarks afterwards which which required their own kind of cryptic analysis of Of what he's saying what he's saying what does he mean that route that requires interpretation? It sort of it takes years to figure out even how to write about This guy And I'm not saying I've I've figured out how to do because I really haven't but I know that it's been challenging to try to do it. I'm not sure I'm answering your question there but that everything I'm saying is how I feel but he he doesn't sit down with people essentially for books in general. I've never known him to. He sat down with Bob How're goes a really good relationship with them for a masters a Masters Journal this year And I'm sure when he writes this autobiography he'll work with the ghostwriter rider and that'll be really interesting to see how deep he's GonNa WanNa go but I think I think he's private by nature and I think also he's figured stuff out that he doesn't want to share but as he gets older he might be more willing to share and so his own future as a writer could make. You won't forget about you know this book that in publishing advocacy by supersede. Anything that the that that Britain along with the Haney Book and the book as well. I guess what I'm getting to is. This tiger doesn't talk. He has made it so that his close circle around him. Also don't talk so as a reporter take me through then your entry points into this story. Where do you go to cover someone who's been extensively covered who also doesn't particularly want to be covered? Right I really get the question and I've and And I wish I had An answer that was better than deaths but I think the only thing you can really do. What Tiger Woods is watch them? You just watch them closely as you possibly can and I would say this for me for you for anybody writing about him or for any fan of tiger or any. When who's interested in Tiger Watch them through the prism of your own experience? Golf Channel has one take on them and Johnny Miller might have had another and you might have one. I have one but I think what we can all do. As as as citizen reporters do you sort of certain new phrase is watch them and try to interpret and try to understand him for ourselves because I think he is worthy of the attention because he's done a remarkable thing with his life. He's done a difficult thing at a level that really nobody else is ever really done with very very few exceptions for a long long time often with the odds stacked against him. I'm very appreciative of it. All because I I don't know what the what the time time line is from an how many more years I have been doing this at this level and A year ago I didn't know if I do the so a lot of emotions. A lot of things have been very fluid this entire year and I. It's just amazing that the support. I've gotten I I probably wouldn't have achieved the things I mailed chief this year without the support of of all the people in all the fans and they're cheering there Because I've had bad rounds I have bad days. I didn't play well and they've been so supportive and trying to pick me up and Trust me it health and so for this book it's called the second life of Tiger Woods Because in a sense it covers this next chapter this latest chapter of his career. Which when is that begin? I appreciate that question to him because I think I my this is just my own. Take on it. My feeling is that you won the US Open. Two Thousand Eight There was a lot going on his life to us. Ninety two chance to win the championship. He didn't and I owned my own view of two thousand nine. Two Thousand Eight two thousand nine through the sex scandal Right through Memorial Day. Two thousand seventeen is basically a period of dissent for for Tiger and my my take looking at his life is that the second tiger woods really begins moral date. Two thousand seventeen I know ardent fans are tigers. Like oh what you want to bring up this negative stuff you know. It's just a bad day in his life. It's not my view of it. My view was that was the day that he he couldn't escape that day. He couldn't blame tabloid media spying on them which he very much could for the for the sex scandal. He obviously had a drug issue. He was certainly a person that night. Who is out of control and it was a day of reckoning and then the question became who do I really want to be as a public figure as an athlete and I think most significantly as a father and I think he reached bottom? And I think that's when the second photographer it's Began and I think that that is one of the key. Theses of your book is that was that may have saved his life to some extent maybe literally saved his light. I do think it literally saved his life and one of the to say this in. You would notice when we've talked about this but others wouldn't was the way that Jupiter Police Department handled him that night Had a lot to do with everything that followed okay. You under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence okay. I had the driven Tiger Woods home that night and not arrested him. Which of course would would would be unethical. But something that would have happened did happen And instill and still happens Who knows what would the next event would have been like? Could he killed himself? Could have killed could have killed somebody else if he was in that situation again But they they treated him with the level of empathy and humanity where he could really sorta recognize his own issues That night and and I think everything that followed.

"Surly person that night. Who'S OUT OF CONTROL? How are you doing tonight? And it was a day of reckoning where California and then the question became who do I really want to be. Where are you calling from right now as a public figure you know? You're out or now as an athlete and I think most significantly as a father. Have you been drinking today? No I think you reach bottom and I think that's what the second life type awards for the last three decades. The chapters of Tiger Woods life have played out in front of US mostly. They've been inspiration but not always. Who is tiger become now? And what can we learn from it? I'M DYLAN TO CHAIR. And this is the drop zone. So we're here with Michael Bamberger. The author of the second life of Tiger Woods. This is roughly your seventh or Eighth Book that you've released. Michael is that about right. Were Dylan to cheer the inventor of Muny. Monday held in equal esteem to Your New Tiger Woods Book Michael in brief. When did you first see meet or become interested in Tiger Woods? I devastated reading about him when he was. You know a young teenager like anybody who would have subscribed to golf. World would have known that name once. He started winning those three. Us Juniors he was a thing for sure I didn't see him in person. I would have seen on TV. If I didn't seem live in person until he's won three. Us says you know the second of them at Newport Country Club what setting more fitting for the US. Jason Tenu aniversary then. It's competitive birthplace. Newport Country Club where one hundred years ago the first National Amateur Championship was played in. I was a reporter at the Philadelphia Inquirer at the time he was playing him. Buddy Marucci in the final who later became a Walker Cup captain or so. I went to Newport on that Sunday. I was gonNA write a buddy no matter what he did but in my mind it was like wow. I get a chance to see. Tiger was an action eighteen which responded with a spectacular shack repertoire. A year ago. What was interesting about Tiger Woods? At that point the starting point would have to be his unusual background. The fact that is you know now we take it for granted. It's not even discussed I. I would regard that as social progress that it's not discuss. But then the fact that yet that his mom was from Thailand that his father is African American that he grew up playing public courses. That really was the starting point to the fascination with tiger woods because it was so unusual woods tell us that from an early age because of the color of his skin he had to face the ignorance of some members at certain crops not every day but every time I go to major country club always feel it can always sense it People always staring at you. What are you doing here shouldn't be here. I was an anomaly. That would have been the first month striking thing. And then how he played the game of course would have been you know one eight for for me anyway and then fast forwarding about twenty something years. When did you first decide to write this book about Tiger Woods Bmw event was that Iran mink in the summer of two thousand and eighteen and given we're tiger was in two thousand seventeen and watching them closely. Ron elving Philadelphia and I did watch closely. I never thought he'd get to where he was at that point. It's like I never would have anticipated if you such then. Kenny win on tour again. I would have said yes. She could be hard but he could. Could you ever want another major? I would have said no but I saw enough. There's like wow whatever used on to get himself to where he is right now. Iran two thousand eighteen data alone is worthy of a book. If I can give one hundred percent and feel that my best is still good enough to win. Then ocoee plant. If I know that I I can't put together anymore. I used to. There's no sense from Catherine Embarrass Myself Anymore..

US open v got man in history to win the US open and the PGA championship in the same season. I sense Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods constitutes basically every Gulf I since stat that exists, everything that we see accomplish. Now we'll be first since Tiger Woods until the end of time which makes what Brooks kept goes doing. All the more amazing to do that while tiger shoot his shot. His best final round score in a major ever to do that. With that guy, breathing down neck indicates a level of fortitude, a level of fortitude that comes with playing against in alongside two of his idols. In that final round, he talked about. About what the tiger roar meant to him. I think other than me, my team, everybody was written for tiger. I mean as they should. You know, he's probably the greatest player to ever play the game. To have the comeback that he's having. Is incredible. You know, you look at the British Open when he when he finally got that lead, how energetic that crowd was. And then when he started making that run, it brought me back to when I was a kid when I was watching him and you heard those Reuters. I remember I went to the British Open. Forget what your was when Ben Curtis one, and he was kind of making a charge and you could hear the road. I mean being a part of that as a fan is cool. And even when you're playing, it's still pretty neat and pushes you to step up your game. I mean, you have to because you know, he's right there. If you fall invent is exactly it Brooks KEPCO is a child of the Tiger Woods era. Brooks KEPCO was forged in that fire and in the fire of a weight room bench press. Let's make that very clear body by Brooks is built blurs Lee with upper body day. I heard about the full body workout. All right, dude, like. That's cool.

I American man in the masters era to win three or more majors while in the holding one non major PGA tour victory. This is a guy with big stage metal, and that comes with an understanding that you've got to be pushed to that point. That's what Lucien does. Right? It pushes us to extremes and it forces us to adapt. Well, he got in that situation was able to thrive in that situation despite Tiger Woods, the best we've seen of him since he's been air quotes back and still come out the other side that makes golfer that might finally be worthy of being that next guy. As we look for young contenders to take over, no one's going to move the needle. Tiger Woods probably ever again what Brooks kept because says he's the best of all time. I agree with them and in sport we have seen phenomenons like him ever across any sport. What he was able to do yesterday at this stage in his career makes no sense as far as being a public spectacle the way he is. But for kept gonna come out the other side and to do it as coolly and calmly as he did everyone. Lauding this kid's demeanor. There's something special here, and so we usually gloss over tiger winner. Tiger guys who win tournaments tiger where. Tigers the story Brooks KEPCO, in addition to holding up the trophy seems to be holding a fair amount of our interest as well. That's not worthy.
