Winston Churchill said it best about when one is going through tough times and struggling to break-through as Tiger Woods is now…
“If you are going through Hell, keep going.”
Before Tiger Woods can earn a Major Championship again he must directly face his own personal demons and then and only then can Tiger Woods become a Major Champion again and the Late Great Joseph Campbell can say this TRUTH much better than us…
“It’s only when a man tames his own demons that he becomes the kind of himself if not of the world.”
You have faced and tamed your own personal demons Tiger Woods…
…it is time to become a Major Champion again.
With the third round of the PGA Championship being completed on Sunday morning Tiger Woods has an opportunity to start anew his rocky third round and to get back into contention and win the 2012 PGA Championship Woods MUST…
AND most of all
Play to WIN.
Just as Luke Skywalker in the movie The Empire Strikes Back was told by Yoda when Skywalker was facing his own inner demons…
“Luke: There’s something not right here… I feel cold. Death.
Yoda: [points to a cave opening beneath a large tree] That place… is strong with the dark side of the Force. A domain of evil it is. In you must go.
Luke: What’s in there?
Yoda: Only what you take with you.”
Only YOU Tiger Woods can defeat your own personal demons and win a Major Championship again and above all else YOU Tiger Woods MUST play with COURAGE….again.
“Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality that guarantees all the others.” Winston Churchill
Although many Coaches Hot Seat members are in northern Montana in the Great Rocky Mountains at Glacier National Park there are two CHS members at the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island and one of them called us tonight after following Tiger Woods during his first 8 holes on Saturday and the CHS member he wished he could have told Woods as he was walking off the course after play was suspended:
“Tiger, quit playing so Damn defensive, get off your ass and start playing the game of golf.”
OK, we will tell Tiger Woods that ourselves….
“Tiger, quit playing so Damn defense, get off your ass and start playing the game of golf.”
Memo to Tiger Woods: We have our alarms set for very early in the morning in the Great Rocky Mountains and we will be watching TNT in our RVs at 6 AM Mountain Time to see you finish your third round and MAYBE play your fourth round if you get off your ass and start playing the game of golf again….BUT…if you keeping slopping it around on Sunday we will just go fishing and catch the end of the fourth round and the highlights on the Golf Channel on Sunday night.
Come on Tiger….it supposed to be hard, it supposed to be a challenge and it is supposed to be Very Damn Difficult to WIN a Major Championship and that is why WINNING a Major Championship is so Damn special and unless you are willing to fight through bad breaks, missed shots and your own personal demons in a very direct way you are going to have a Helluva tough time winning another Major this week….or EVER.
Play hard Tiger and we will just go fishing late on Sunday!
