"Love. What is this longing for togetherness? Is it not the sweetest flower it? It was an awesome week. It was an awesome fantastic week. But I couldn't wait to get back on the mic phone today because there is a lot to talk about. College football. Good is dead that dead dead. Hi. Pittsburgh Penguins dead Dad. Dad, Dad, come on. In 12 days. Adam call dead pumped up. There's a lot of negative happening in sports right now. I mean, the MLB is just powering through this cove in 19 situation, they say, Listen, you want to come through our dugouts You want to come through our club house is no big deal will postpone games. Everybody else will continue to play and we'll just have seven inning double headers in the future to make up for it. Rob Manfred said. I don't give a damn. We're going power through this because we have to not only because of business because the boys want to play. The MBA has been doing a fantastic job down there in the bubble. Try to watch a little bit of last night's game. If there isn't a big star on the floor, it's going to be on a lot tougher to watch and I thought it was gonna be. They got 25 cameras down there. They're only utilizing ones that they only utilized for regular games. And then the Internet gets these incredible shot from all the other cameras. The TV people refused to use. I think they could have maybe Revolutionised the way basketball was covered down here in this bubble they're choosing not to. But the Internet has gotten some great shots of stars are obviously there everything like that. But if it's a couple of teams that don't matter, Boy, it is tough to watch calling Morikawa. Ladies and gentlemen, we have the future of golf and I might be slow on this thing. But yesterday lightly evening, by the way, little bit different to watch it in the late evening, I guess, little prime time as opposed to the morning on Sunday, and to be honest, I'm not 100% sure which one I liked more. I saw a lot of debating Whether or not they liked it in the morning of the elected at night, I'm more of a night animal myself, but it did feel weird watching that thing unfold all the way up until, like, eight o'clock at night, nine o'clock at night, a little bit different, but watching Maura Kala play golf was fantastic. I don't think I've had that type of feeling watching somebody played golf for a long time and mounted them back whenever I was a kid when Tigers showed up on the scene. It might have been one ever. Tiger was wearing those Sunday Reds and you knew what he was about to do to a golf course was absolutely obliterated. He might hit a drive somewhere. He was going to scramble. He's going to figure it out watching Maura Tower pick apart that course yesterday, especially in crunch time with a major on the line where there was like, seven people that go to one that thing. I mean, it was beautiful to watch good for golf. Good for American golf and good for us to get a chance. Watches more college kid who's at the age of 23 wins his first major alongside by the way, Jack ever heard of him. Oh, Tiger Woods ever heard of him in a guy that completely disappeared after running his run? Rory McIlroy. Let's hope Morikawa is more like Tiger Inject, as opposed to Rory, but it feels like more cow is a stone cold killer. And and that is that is something that I was soon not a lot of golfers have. This guy started golfing when he was five. His dad got him a swing and a mental coach at the age of eight. I mean, he's been there, done that with everything. He talked about that shot on 16 or he set himself up for ego, seven foot putt for eagle off of a 290 or Dr perfectly onto the green or whatever, 1 16 to basically secure his first major. He said that I look good in his eye or whatever. What the hell does that mean? Basically, he talked about how you know in his mind. He sees things in all this, and he's been doing it since he was eight years old with a mental coach in a swing coach, and I think that's all you really need in golf. And whenever he had already won this thing, and they were showing him and he was watching himself on camera, he was laughing. He was looking at this whenever the pressure was at its highest It seemed as if he was at his best, and that's good for golf. From what I'm understanding. I love the D shambo, by the way has gone full hell I like D shambo. Now I hate him A week ago, I said many are two weeks ago, I said on many occasions if D Shambo was in any other sport one from 34 driving to number one and driving and put on £40 everybody be like, Oh, that guy is taking all the steroids. And now after thie fire ant situation in the camera situation, and now before each shot, he's taking massive hack. Massive de Shambo is becoming die like a lot. But calling Mork Allah is our guy which I could buy his jersey which was a tweet I put out yesterday. I wish I could buy more college jersey to rock that thing, But a lot of people, you know, said good idea. A lot of people said by his shoes whenever they come out eventually. I'm like, OK, I don't wear shoes on a golf course. But I could get into that. That's a guy. I can't wait to get behind and somebody should empty the bank account on Colin Morikawa. Ah, congratulations to digs. He got married on Saturday. Currently on his honeymoon right now in that wedding, by the way, was coming down to the wire on whether or not I was going to be able to happen. So for those that don't know my wedding happened in a county that is north of Indianapolis digs. His wedding happened in the county that Indianapolis resides. The county that Indianapolis resides in Much stricter mandates on the mask in the social distancing So the fact that he and his bride were able to get that wedding off when it literally was down. Like the last week on whether or not it was gonna happen now he's off on a honeymoon. Incredibly happy for them both. If they enjoy it half as much as my lady and I enjoyed ours. I think they're going to enjoy the hell out of it. They're going to talk about love. They're gonna talk about their future. Do all that happy for dicks. All the boys are here at McMorrow does here. Sitting and digs chair here at Boston Corner. How you doing, Bob? You look ridiculous. Thank you, Pat. I'm feeling fantastic. Honestly, thinking about a mental coach now that more Kawagoe when he could see the future Come on..
Li at his best and builds early lead at PGA Championship
"Radio Sports Center Lennox Today in San Francisco Lee how tongue becomes the first player ever from China Toe lead after any round of a golf major championship lead today. Second round 565 Is it eight under overall after the 1st 2 rounds of the PGA Championship. Tiger Woods, two over par 72 is eight shots off the lead and behind the leader, lead Jason Day and five others at six under two shots off the lead day at several points for the round, sharing the lead with Lee but ended up with a double bogey on 12. It just kind of separates.

So I just I would much prefer playing a difficult golf

"Circle. Sounds pretty great. Who is Colin Morikawa? Well, he Is a player that just essentially came out of the tour. He Has now three wins compared to well, just one miss cut. He actually had a cut street going to start a career in the low twenties. That was rival ring Tiger. And then he ended up missing a cut Tiger. I think his record 25 when he started off his career, so he had gotten up to a good start. He had gotten quite a bit of amateur kind of talked while he was at Cal, where he played He decided to stay, though at school for four years. A lot of guys when they are as good as more car has been, like Woods and speech and guys like that, who have played in their school, the woods at Stanford Speed the Texas Did they tend to come out and turn pro golf at an early age? Just like in other sports, But Mark Allah decided to stay. He thought he was He definitely. You can tell, routed and got kind of a lot of family influence, he said. Look at education. Still my number one thing and all that sort of you can see. He's got a very mature attitude for a guy being so young, a 23 But his golf career is even younger than what a 23 year old most guys that are. This good would have started it like you know, 20 or 21 so in terms of his professional career He's only played in 29 professional events. And he's got three wins already, which is pretty impressive. When Tiger won his first major that 97 masters at historic win, it was his ironically enough, his 29th event. So in terms of Timeline played on the PGA Tour. He's got his first major, just like Tiger did at the same time. I think I always Ah, I think we tend to in sports. Jumped too quickly to anoint the next great young talent. Having said that, not just Colin Morikawa Brian because there are names on the leader board that you would know I wouldn't know. But is there a like, Do you see? Is he part of like a a new wave of that? The low 22 mid twenties group of golfers? Is there a new wave of stars on the tour right now emerging I think so. I mean, Matthew Wolf, a guy that finished in four and played in that Charity event for covert back in May with Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson. I mean, he's getting popularity. You've got that little twitch before his swing for, although that may be it watch yesterday, and he hits it a mile. He hits it as far as anybody on tour. He was leading in driving after the 1st 2 rounds. He finished tied for fourth. He's gotta win already. And we've mentioned to shambo. I mean, he's mid twenties, but I guess I definitely still counting him. In that young mix. Vander Shop, please Such a young, good player. Patrick can't leave a young, good player and obviously weaken you can throw Laura Colono into that mix. All these players were inspired by watching Tiger Woods and you've been here. You know what they've been talking about that he's definitely been a guy that they've been kind of looking up to Justin Thomas Still Super Young and he's Almost had almost like Hall of Fame career numbers already, he's he's almost in his own league in terms of these young, upcoming players, but what Mark Holly did is pretty amazing. He shot 65 64. It's the best To finishing rounds. In major championship history, so he clearly deserved it. There was a lot of guys that played great. I thought Paul Casey played tremendous. I thought maybe Wolf played tremendous Jason Day and Tony Pino Pino on the weekend when 67 66. I mean the shamble in 66. That's amazing. With how firm the greens were mean. It wasn't easy, but what more Kalle was able to do really impressive and kudos to the PGA for how they set it up. I mean to have that dramatic driveable 16th hole. Have some of these holes where Guys a chance. You may have that risk reward. That's all you really looking for. It is, Is there going to be drama is the risk reward is there to strategy and obviously the drama was there. You're right. It was shaping up at one point to think Like we were gonna have a six or seven Man playoff. It was pretty wild. Do a two part question about Dustin Johnson first. What'd you think of Brooke? What Brooks kept a had to say about him and then the second part. So he's won a major, but he's had what I know five or something runner ups and majors. I saw the stat about when he leads after the third round. He's now one for in terms of closing out the major. So what about what kept has said, And what is the book or the reputation or whatever. What are people saying about Dustin Johnson. I was surprised, kept said it because of who he was talking about. I'm not capture is pretty open about just saying whatever he wants to say, and that's kind of the brashness of him. I He's not wrong. I mean, there was a lot of players that had not won a major ever The only guys that were in the top 10 going into the day where Jason Day who has one major and Dustin Johnson, who has won, but as you've mentioned had trouble And the reason why I was more surprised about kind of how he mentioned D..
Is Tiger Woods about to make a putter change?
"Talked again, we talked a good amount about him. He looks great. There's a lot of positive thoughts about his chances this week he warned in Oh five. He won here I think that he never shot higher than sixty eight and then in two thousand, nine, the President's covers here at harding park he went five Oh and so he has good history here he is still the. Reigning Masters Champion. Ugly, Fifteenth. In the world, some are trying to point. So some negatives like he's only played four competitive rounds in six months. I'm not focused on that I. Don't think he gives a shit about that. He showed up to Zozo championship last year in Japan and it felt like we had seen him play golf or any decent golf in months, and he's won that tournament in Atlanta. He showed up to the President's cup. We were there. We were physically there watch the entire thing. Play the president's coverage has several the best players in the world, their best player, the President's Cup in a landslide. So Tiger Woods smile and yet focused I like his chances this. I think he's come a long way since Monday and a lot of people's minds in that. All is incredibly exciting. On. Monday because. If we remember in the last podcast, you said, he really had no chance. That's true. Well, said, he's the favourite. Video and a you know with the weather and everything else that I would write this low on his list Jimi play whatever rig said because it wasn't that wasn't what we said and it certainly wasn't when said he was literally what I just you in you in the New York Post or two peas in a pod newer post tweeted out. Tiger Woods needs a miracle this week at the championship it was like what the fuck is going on and you know rig says similar points new. York Post. I said tiger. Woods is the favorite I said that on Monday show Tuesday show Jake will find that but I just ranked course and the the fact it's fifty five fucking degrees and narrow fairways. Low on the list of tiger woods majors coming up in the next four five years. It's not that hard. Of course, is not the art of course, I gave Frankie thumping already park last night. On the game. So it was like I I I could go out there right now in wooded. So the overall. Well I you know. I didn't realize we were GONNA play a marathon session of golf club twenty, nineteen I looked at the time we're finished up three and a half hours. My back was sore. I couldn't feel my feet like it's not built for endurance I'm just not built for endurance but I smoked you. At harding. Park. So I'm not too worried about art course conditions. By the way, we're not just a heads up just while we're talking about it. We said we were GONNA stream tonight, Thursday you're listening to it but we didn't realize that the coverage goes so late. So we will not be streaming tonight, but we will doing Tuesday Thursday next week. So be on the lookout for that. Last Tiger related thing new putter. About the new potter, he's got the Scott Newport. I think it's like the two point. Oh it's the one with the different weights and couple of different reports about it. Some saying he's definitely putting it in play other saying it's GonNa be a game time decision he. According to Steve Stricker, Tiger really likes it. It's a little longer in length with have been over as much. We can practice as putting a lot more which makes a lot of sense So that would be a good thing for the back and then another aspect of it is that apparently it's got adjustable wait we have heard for decades now tiger. Could just couldn't get the speed right or you know other Greens were little slower than I thought and I guess instead of having to make that adjustment in your fields or in your judgment calls in, you're putting in how hard it he can just tweet the weights and the Scottie, and that's what he likes because you know if the Green Bay speed them up from. Wednesday Thursday early days beat him up from Saturday Sunday whenever he can just kind of tweak the weights part of me going into this feels like well, tiger woods has won thirteen or fourteen major championships with that part of that is the elder wand. That is the thing that he flipped and spun in circles right in front of our faces that ad US bedazzled. Is the horn. Rocks. And any other usage of any other putter is not only blasted, but it's it's him searching a tim trying to find something which means he's not comfortable, and then the other part of me says, it's Tiger fucking. Would you give them a wooden stick? You give them happy. Gilmore's little hockey stick putter. He'll go out there and win because he's the greatest time you give them any driver persimmon would as a matter it'll just go out and win because he's better than everyone else and it doesn't matter So I'm a little torn on the whole thing. But it's Tigers putter. So everybody's talking about basically I'm just praying for success I mean, I do I think it's the right decision and adding and subtracting weights based on green speed that seems Like, if I'm just going to pick up a new tool every time when it's GonNa be different weight I don't think that I'm going to have much accessible but again, I'm not tiger so I'm not so keen on that. But Hell. If he's got confidence conferences key and if he thinks that's going to help them make more. Than you know play with a hockey stick or whatever. You just said you know so. Tricky one, but you were rooting for dagger. But I don't like I. Don't I'm not as doesn't work for me and I'm not a fan. I am not a supportive of the change I want that other potter to just pile up major victories and lurch. You said what I was GonNa say where changing the way day to day on a putter seems like a nightmare scenario I get that stegar woods. He's the greatest Golfer of all time but I need everything in my bag and again I'm not comparing myself to tiger woods but I need everything to be. One way just needed to be the same all the time. So messing with putter way just seems like a crazy idea but again, if he likes it if it makes him comfortable, that's GonNa give them better chances week. Thank God.

Psychiatrist Dr. Mark Goulston - Real influence and Training Yourself
"You're like you're like. Drinking from a fire. I'm apple. Ramp Myself Up I. was I can't take a nap on your show. That's for sure. I want to demonstrate something because there's a saying at least in Hollywood I'm not that far from it even though we're all isolated. It's better to show than to tell so. I'm going to demonstrate something far. Listeners in for you about how to be more influential. One of the things unfortunate to do is i. On on break now, but I breakfast would Larry King every day. Although we're doing zoom calls now and something. I've noticed about Larry because Larry eighty-six. He's still going strong. Still has a show. It streamed call Larry King now on home on the on the Internet and something I've noticed what has made Larry's such an icon. Is. Here's A. Plus after. and not a minus sir, and not a topper. What that means is when he listens to people. He adds to what they're saying. He doesn't a minus it he doesn't. Get Defensive. He doesn't give advice. He doesn't give unsolicited advice on his shows, so nobody's afraid. They're going to get a GOTCHA. And he's not a topper. If you say I if you say Oh, I went to the mountains, he he's not going to say oh. That's very nice. You know we went to Europe. And, so I'm going to be a plus to something. You just said I. Hope this will add value. You're listening because you mentioned something about training and I was thinking as you were talking about and I'm. And I'm reminded of a fellow named Dan Sullivan. Dan Sullivan found something called the strategic coach and part of what Dan said is what life get comes down to his habits. Happy People have different habits than unhappy people. Successful people have different habits than unsuccessful people. And he said what a habit is is it's a discrete piece of behavior that you repeat over and over again until it becomes a habit. And it takes about a month, and in other words you train on that and you repeat on that takes discipline, but over time you internalize it, and it becomes more natural, and then you can learn another habit now why this is important under stress because I'm am a psychiatrist, but I'm also a passionate about neuroscience. Is. What happens is when we're under stress and who isn't. We have you've all heard of your adrenal glands? And what happens is your adrenal guns. Put out something called Cortisol. High Cortisol is high stress and what happens is your high cortisol triggers something in your brain called your middle and Migdal as part of your emotional brain, and when that high cortisol goes up. What happens is it triggers a migdal hijack and what that means. Is Your Migdal shunts blood away from your thinking brain. Into your survival brain and guess what taps into your training. It will tap in to what you've been trained to do almost automatically. Do you think NBA stars when. They think between shots. No, it's training and they've been trained. What what's the saying? It May Have Been Stephen, Covey senior, or someone said you need. What is it ten thousand? What does it take to be come an expert? He said was at ten thousand hours. As a ten thousand hours or know that's probably more training in many of us however. Yeah thousands of hours. Thousands of hours and what happens is you become an expert at it, so you don't even have to think when you're faced with a situation, so I can't emphasize what Jay is saying. Strongly enough train train train train so that you have many many options, no matter what something whatever is. Facing you years ago I, was a fan of tiger woods during his heyday, and it was interesting when someone asked him. How do you play around the Gulf? He says. I've hit every shot possible ten thousand times, so he's an expert in every shot. He said every time I hit a shot. I don't race ahead I. don't worry about it because I know. I've trained and hit whatever SEAN I'M GONNA face. Ten Thousand Times and he says what I do is i. just you know, have a nice walk dot, breathe and feel okay. Don't worry I get on top of the shot I. Look at where I'm GonNa next hit it I know I've hit it at ten thousand times. I look at the ball and I. Just say one word execute. And so I love what you're saying about. The Training Training Training and And I know for a lot of listeners. In these times you're overwhelmed. OVERWHELMED WITH! I can train and I'm just trying to make it through the day. I'll tell you another bit of training. That I learned from a friend of mine. His name was Bob. ECKERD he was the CEO of Mattel. And I asked I asked Bob. How do you deal with stress? and. I'll tell a quick story if that's okay, sure absolutely story. So he told me. He said that before he wasn't Mattel and he's left Mattel. Now is an investment company, but he really turned mattel. Ron Big time. And he said before that he was the CEO of Craft in Chicago and when he started at kraft, he was I may president of the cheese division. And in two months time, the dairy prices went up. And so craft, Gary. Prices went up, and then they went down, but it was written into the bylaws of craft that they didn't lower their prices, so the independence lowered the prices when the prices went down, but kraft didn't. And he had no say over that he was just the president of the division. He unwritten all the protocols, and so the newspaper there was all these headlines. Heads are GonNa Roll at craft. It's going to be the end of craft. Because Cheese was a big division biggest. Division. And he told me he said you know. I was just in a funk and staring. Into the TV screen on a Sunday and the. Coach of the Cincinnati Bengals Sam Wash. And taken the Bengals to the Super Bowl two years earlier, they'd lost, but he took him to the Super Bowl. But this year they had lost ten games in a row. And Bob said I'm just staring at the TV. And the report says to. Sam, so Sam. What are you GONNA do. You're going to be fired on Tuesday. What do you think about that? and Bob said it was as if he was speaking to me. Sam Weiss looked out on the television and said. You know what I'm going to be fired. On Tuesday I know I'm going to be fired on Tuesday. Everybody knows I'm going to be fired on Tuesday But, that doesn't matter. What matters is what can I do between Sunday and Tuesday to make the Bengals a better team? So what Bob adapted I think it's a great philosophy to get through stressful times, and he used it to get through rough times at Mattel. Is. He said before he goes to bed. He says to himself, and he writes down. What can I get done? That's different. Than what can I do, but what can I get done by the end of tomorrow? To Make Mattel, a better company. What can I get done by the end of tomorrow to be a better husband to be a better dead? And when you write that down when you train yourself to get into that habit to it for thirty days, it'll become natural. You can go to bed. Easier, you can change it when you wake up in the morning, but again it's one of those trainings. What can I get done? To Make My. To make my team more successful to make me were successful. If I'm looking for a job to be a more effective and looking for a job so right that. That question before you go to bed. Train yourself to do it. And you might be able to get to sleep without having to take some of those magic. His name is Dr Mark Allston. A. By the way I did not know he was going to do this and it was better than I could ever. Swore. WE'RE WE WE? I know we're. GonNa talk about this book real influence. And it's fantastic, but what you're hearing is the heart of the man, and he is absolutely fabulous. He's going to be with us for the next forty minutes on the

What to expect from Tiger Woods' return to golf
"Eyes actually pretty compelling this weekend, Tiger Woods will play for the first time in months had this to say about his return. It was great to be back. I haven't played on a determined venue in a while. It's been a while since February. So a long time for me and then to get out there and play with today was was a bunch of fun, and it's certainly a different world different environment that were in place. You know, practice rounds like this and I watched a tour has evolved on guys started back and to see no fans. It's just a It's a very different world order. My bet is the tiger secretly loves this well loves it. First of all he's always played well, The memorial is one of a bunch of times, but secondly, when you're tiger and you are putting a fish ball like that, and the gallery for you dwarfs the gallery for the rest of the entire Tournament combined. And he's had his social awkwardness well documented over the years. I gotta I gotta imagine maybe he gathers a lot of energy from the roars. But I bet he just loves this. I bet he can just go. You know when you see Tiger and Phil and Brady and Manning doesn't look like tigers is having a ton of fun. But like in a regular tournament looks like so stressed. The look on his face is just like I mean, he looks like the world on his shoulders. I wonder if he's not going to play really well this weekend because he could just go play golf, and he doesn't need to worry about all those fans up in his

"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..

"Well with the PGA tour. Starting tomorrow wanted to bring on. My Guy Will Brinson as promised at will Brinson on twitter. He's host of the pick. Six podcast I've been on that. It's an excellent show. I enjoy it tremendously, but he also is really into Goff. He's really into baseball. Is really you know a lot of things before we get to the PGA tour or golf? Stuff will let me just ask you this. The I don't remember what it was called, but Tiger Woods Phil Mickelson you know. peyton manning Tom Brady. The ratings that did and the money that it generated I. Guess my first reaction was how much of that is because it's the only thing going on during the virus, and how much of it is because people thought it was cool. Just Watch one group of. Football players and a couple guys go like I. You know I almost thought of like if I'm tiger woods and Phil Mickelson like, why do I need to play these other events like every like three or four times a year? Get a couple, musicians, or you know movie, stars or athletes do one of these deals and a boatload of money from it. Yeah I mean I think. The ratings are definitely Ross a result of the pandemic to to a larger extent I. Mean Look at you know even like. The the last dance was awesome, and it was absolutely must watch television, but the ratings were not. I don't think like real last dance ratings if we actually have sports going on, we're not all sort of cooped up in the house so I i. think that does make a difference. People are itching for some real sports, but yeah, we look you're talking about putting four of the biggest sole celebrity athletes on the planet in a in a in a golf match. People are going to be interesting to see what happens. so so from that perspective I think it's something that that those guys will do more of and let's not forget I. Mean for all the you know the ribbing and like Oh like look who want etcetera etcetera. These guys are pocketing huge piles of cash, and so a lot of you raised a lot of money for charity, too, but I mean these guys are pocketing here's pile huge piles of cash when they do an event like this, this is not a not entirely out of the goodwill of their of their generous hearts. Did you. Bet on it will, and did you. Did you love it? I was I was actually. I missed the early part of it because I was actually playing golf myself. We can play golf in north. Carolina. and I didn't bet on it. Because I was I like. I didn't think there was enough value in the favorites if I if I didn't sitting at my computer and watching the the first part of probably prop bets Anything A. full-blown degenerate, but just because I was playing golf and didn't have the early part. and I didn't like the I like I like the I thought the favorites. The. Phase GonNa win. And but I, I thought that the best value was on the dog, and so I didn't I I. It was like a tough spot for me. I didn't love the price on it, and so I figured out playing golf myself. Maybe just stay away on this one. It's actually rare thing I'd bet on oddly enough. Steve I'm curious I didn't even ask you. Did you watch that? Did you get involved in it at all, did you? Did you like it? Do you think it could be sort of the future for Golfer? At least more have more of them in the future for golf? What about four holes do some strong opinions about? This golf is horribly flawed right now because the players are boring. And Dairy. I just I can't watch golf all the players. Basically I have no interest other than tiger woods. Who I like following because he has a personality, shows emotion and I think that that what really stood out how great that exhibition was is with you, know Phil, needling tiger back and forth, and and the like, and you know Brady struggling big time early. It was just it was riveting I. Think I would have watched it. had been full sports on and I. Don't watch golf because I'm I. I'm sorry I'm just bored in terms of betting. I'll tell you this. Thank goodness. There was no live betting that I saw on this event because after six holes when woods and manning up three, I was convinced they were GonNa win by seven. This was going to be one of the. The greatest blow outs of all time. It's woods home. Course he's hitting. Every fairway and Brady can't play a lick so I guess a little warning and live betting things can change because obviously, this match got very close at the end,

"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.

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.

"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..
"tiger woods" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"I mean, it is supposed to be for people who have quote now made an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States world, peace cultural or other significant public or private endeavors other than playing golf. What has Tiger Woods done? That would make him deserving of this. And this isn't me talking. I think leaders in the black community certainly do not look favorably on Tiger Woods for anything. He has tried to do for them. But he won the master's. Yeah. There you go. I mean, so giving the green jacket, but not a presidential medal of freedom. I mean, I don't know what this guy has done. I'll tell you what surveys. A hard decision for him. Dan. It was an easy decision for him. I mean, Tiger Woods has. In what I've seen at least in his public life. He he's never really been about thinking about anyone else or or any kind of movement or anything like that. He's been about himself. He's a guy who plays golf with Trump certainly Trump's racist statements and things like that have never bothered. Tiger Woods Tiger Woods has not minded being the guy that Donald Trump donlevatar. If you watched the interview last night that he did without Trautwein believe is a fossil, by the way. Anyway, if you wanted to take out Al try lake, please seriously, polished, Al trout Trautwein. I got shoes without trout that go way way back way back. Way back go on. I just don't like the God man still gods. What this on the pole when I say the name out trout wig. Do you? Imagine him wearing a wig made out of trout. VC's live at our show with his two guys on ESPN radio abors. Bro. See just walking through Bris works on our TV. Steph. Walked into the shot. Abors was here on time. I was love. It was Bris rose..
"tiger woods" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Well, yesterday he missed every single fairway on the front, nine shot at thirty two with Doug. That's what tells me the Tigers back because that's the golf he played for so long. Like if we can take a look here, I think we're gonna pull this video of him at seventeen yesterday. If you want to know Tigers back look, no further than seventeen and eighteen yesterday he missed it so far off the tee on seventeen that he was actually okay. He was over the creaky missed that far to the right and then had a shot out and he puts it in the bunker, then it's he's, he gets up and down. That's stressful golf to play with tiger golf eighteen. He almost whips it out of balance on the left. Then hooks gets his nine iron and they're just about fifteen feet, and everybody goes crazy. That's that's Tiger Woods. Okay. So. If I said, I think he's going to win. At least another major do is obviously a lot of it is reacting to yesterday, but I thought he's gonna win. Another major even before yesterday. Am I crazy not at all? Not at all. Next year. You have Augusta Bethpage and pebble gay and you pebbles a place where he won by fifteen strokes would like it to be a pebble because that's our entire you win like to be like to be a pebble. I do feel like a Gusta is the place where he's most likely to win this next one. We'll know if he comes in with that backwards hat on. I want to take another look at the backwards happy because that's what told me yesterday before the round even started. I wanted to all my friends and just say, you know, put everything you have put the kids, you know college, whatever it is funds. All right. Now on Tiger Woods, do you like this look? I love that he does that the last time I saw him with a backwards hat just like that was walking into Muirfield at the memorial tournament ten years ago when I was an intern and Columbus, Ohio. That's the last time I saw tiger looking like that I wanted to call everybody can say, just put whatever your wife says. Forget it, put everything right now on tiger in Vegas because he's gonna ball. There are certain things that you do in life. When you know you're about to ball, like what like wearing the backwards hat to a major championship or like getting a neck tat. I think I think I think diktats you better, you better be wrapped into a parking. He'd better you better be a rapper battery, or you're going to be doing day labor. If if you do dictate right, like you go to Wall Street, there's no guys Wall Street with the neck Tet. Now you'd better be doing something special. If you only go by an initial if you only go by one name. Yeah, the one name thing is strong. Like if you're one name, you've got to be really, really good, right? But usually the one named thing is given to you, you don't say like, hey, you know, it's like nicknames can't give yourself the nickname prince that wasn't given last thing. The US she does catch a lot of heat because they make their golf courses harder. They just do and Shinnecock. So tough one. They didn't have to water the greens this year, but there were some judgements that had to be made on the fly. What's what's yesterday was a little bit too easy a little bit to score scoreboard. Some of it's the weather. They had the downpour e can't fight that, yeah. Okay. But in terms of the setup of the golf course, I root for the easier courses I want these guys to for why no. Most of America wants to see it. I don't know. They don't. They don't wanna see guys in complete misery. I just think the US open was complete misery. Yes, yes. And part of it was, I mean, he, what? Did he tripled the? I mean, tripled off tanker tripled the first hole that turned out, but he, I think he doubled. Doubled the first hole of. Plus plus three ever tools this weekend. Right? I mean, and even on, I think on on Thursday, he might have doubled on on the first hole, but it's the idea that you can make up ground where you just can't make up ground in the US open. You start getting underwater and you're just fighting guys finishing even-par..
"tiger woods" Discussed on First and Last
"Over the number two finisher Tiger Woods and I truly don't think you get one without the other. I don't think you get someone as cool under pressure who is accomplished as much as the last two years. As Brooks kept the has without Tiger Woods and protein shakes and the weight room. I mean, everyone's first and last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Everybody all hot and bothered listening to Brooks KEPCO talk about. I saw the headline of the article doesn't get sore, talked about his workout routines before these turnament that he puts on says, when you work out every day, you don't really get sore Brooks. I'm not really sure that's how exercise science works necessarily, but to each their own. If you don't get sore. Congratulations. Brooks kept because famed full body workout before the final round of the PGA championship that will now rattle through the ages talked about before. Another major did to twenty five fourteen times. I. As a guy who in the sport of football, you spent a lot of time around the weight room and you get used to then going back into the wild as I call going back into the world of public gyms where you get a lot of weekend warriors that are going in there and throwing around some serious way. You get some guys that are really about it, and some guys that wanna be about it and the guys that want to be about it. This is not saying that Bruce kept isn't, but then talking a lot like that. You hear a lot of these conversations Brooks fourteen. I know it's not that many, but you know, I can get three fifteen. It's whatever you see some of these guys throwing around three fifty and stuff like that. Basically trying to say, I do sports. I'm not all that concerned about that number, but I do like the polo to fit tight and that it did fits on the shoulders of a major champion. Three major championships in his last two years accomplishing feats that only most recently Tiger Woods had accomplished, and I thought it's just another reminder of what you get with tiger involved as you get guys to elevate their game. The way Brooks did. It wasn't like he faced a second rate. Tiger Woods face Tiger Woods shot his best score in a final round of a major ever posted a final round sixty four tiger was locked in. That was the best part about it. That was the best part of all the buzz that you saw. Michael Collins, Costa Matty in the caddy. The podcast ESPN Gulf analysts talked about the buzz around the tournament. It was like a college football game. I mean, the roars and the electricity were through everywhere around the golf course. It was so good that people that weren't with the Tiger Woods group were standing watching scoreboards because they would put highlights up on scoreboards. And so even a whole tiger wasn't on, especially the eighteen there would be grouped walking off the eighteenth green after they shook hands and you would just here. And that's because they showed a tiger highlight on the TV and everyone around would be like, what just happened on eighteen? Why are the guys walking up the stairs?

"tiger woods" Discussed on Only A Game
"This is only a game I might Pasqua these sports world once more believes in Tiger Woods. Why wouldn't it. The greatest golfer of the last forty years woods won fourteen majors between nineteen ninety seven, two thousand eight, and his downfall was just spectacular. This is a cent, so spectacular. I only have to say the crash, the injuries, the affairs, and you know the events to which I refer. But last month tiger finished sixth at the British Open this week. He's among the top fifty golfers in the world playing in the WGC Bridgestone invitational so is tiger back. It's hard not to wonder and want. I want to succeed. I truly truly do Stephen a Smith ESPN as always speaking for so many of us, but Tigers body and age and his competitors might confound the yearning to see the once great golfer sitting atop the leaderboard. Again, it's a story line we crave but what I've been asking myself is, should we but are the implications of Tiger Woods come back. What are we saying when we wish for golf's greatest sensation to once again, be sensational besides concern for the TV networks, but I swear to God just as a sports fan and a golf in it. He could give us one weekend where the tiger of old shows up and competes against these young guns. You will see television ratings like you would never seen the foreign golf on like the rest of the world with an opinion in a microphone has some standing in this matter. He and Jeff Benedict co authored a biography of woods, which is the most comprehensive assessment of the man who won the most majors at the youngest age and then was responsible for the most salacious and ceaseless sex scandal. The world of sports celebrity has ever known to tan in Benedict conducted over four hundred interviews during three years of research and constructed a picture of genius slash monster. Tiger Woods seem destined to be their history's most perfect golfer or sociopath. And the case could be made that he became both Benedict says tigar's father, Earl Woods, all, but guaranteed that outcome. Earl, who's a former soldier from Vietnam green beret who's using these tactics that he taught in warfare school on his fourteen year old son building someone who is more like a machine than a man. As a toddler. Tiger was seated in his highchair and made to watch Earl practice swinging a golf club again. And again, the father believes the thousands of repetitive actions would imprint on the boys brain you can see when he's too that he the way he swings a club that's not natural. That's not normal. He has this regimen that's instilled him. He has a practice schedule that's like a young pro, but he's a toddler who can't even write his name yet it worked it all worked tiger learned the lesson that his parents instilled in him that you don't just beat, but remorselessly beat down. The competition. Tiger was raised to be exactly what he became domineering, ruthless ice cold in sports, but also in life which is wide Catanon asks what the price of that genius woods destroyed. Opponents and relationships says, Jeff, Benedict. He has same. Cold ability to shut people off just like he would when he's on the golf course. He has that same approach to human relationships that he has to the competitive relationships inside the ropes. The authors document how woods broke up with his first love via letter and hasn't spoken to her since that day almost twenty five years ago, he cut out business mentors and golfing mentors like Marco Mira without a look back. Maybe remember images of tiger chumming around with fellow superstar, Charles Barkley, but after Tigers infamous one car accident Barkley was mildly critical of his friend. Afterward. Barkley tried to get in touch, tried to reach out tiger as a friend just offer what friends do. Sympathy, encouragement a shoulder to cry on whatever you need it. He has not talked to Tigers before November twenty seven, two thousand nine. So yes, we love a comeback story, but as a narrative, what would a tiger second act say about exactly the question contain raised, what is the price of genius? What if the price ones being no more than a brief into 'Regnum along a path of overall in you? Umana and what would the lesson be for every parent? Whoever wanted so badly for a child to excel or every kid who ever loved the sport, but also prize their childhood..
"tiger woods" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"Giving the deal it can handle. Oh, for the love of God. So to God's all excited about Tiger Woods here finished his six yesterday, man, that would have been great if he could have done something to drag the ratings up because he was in the weekend and was leading by the eleventh hole or did he need? Did he needs to carry it a little further to get the ratings back to where tiger gets the rating? I haven't seen it yet. I'm certain open championship ratings were way up on Saturday and Sunday at a great rand on Saturday. He really did that was so enjoyable to watch it Sunday. He had a lead and was in it far enough into the day where I think people really glued to their television plus had Jordan speed involved yet. Some other guys involved people retracted to my guess is the open championship is up big from last year, but I'll check it right now, but help me understand something because we were talking about in the local hour. We were talking about there is only one way for Kevin Durant has taken a different path. There is only one way for someone to rival rival LeBron in terms of American sports. Superstardom LeBron is arrived in that place. You remember we've talked about kid rock's hierarchy of fame the way that the hierarchy of fame works. It's like television stars at the bottom movie star is a little bit higher rockstar a little bit higher than that or sports stars. Somewhere in there rockstar higher than that or at the time. And then at the very top of the pyramid was LeBron or Michael Jordan and LeBron is that now in every way, and is about to become more that when he's in Los Angeles. But the only way I can see for anyone in Americans words to rival, that particular king's throne is for Tiger Woods to take the similar path of popular unpopular popular again popular in, you know, super human human superhuman more superhuman than you've ever been. If Tiger Woods in his forties can drag people back to the television set with something. We don't see any more, but is one of the coolest things in sports. Did you call your friends yesterday to tell them? Did you? Did you text your friends? Did you.
