Old on NEW!
The greats of the past on machines that are now.
Back in the day,: Who would you want to be?
Jack, Sam, Ben or Bobby?
To of owned a swing you most definetly would. Heavy clubs, thick rough, slow greens and testing lifestyles. You quickly learned to develop the required body action to successfully swing, turn and shift into and through every swing.
Controlling the golf ball you did through logic and one single desire: TO WIN.
Lets take a look at the current life and times of the games so called greatest, a man born in an era of the most advanced technology and unsurpassed human knowledge. So they say!
Mr Eldrick Tiger Woods is currently exposing the great danger so many of the worlds leading players have unfortunately fallen into. He is currently seeing the worst run of form in his so far exquisite career. Having recently withdrawn from the PGA of Americas so called 5th major championship he has been forced to accept the pitfalls of perseverance when challenging the passage of the greater powers above. The golfing gods who selected him as a man worthy of the right to influence such a broad spectrum of the worlds population through the game of golf. He has now fallen victim to his own persistent need to progress and develop way beyond his natural god given talent.
Is it time we accept that Mr Woods is in fact no more human than either you or I?
Is it time we all stopped following the so called master of all things ball and stick?
Is it not about time we all stand still for just one second and accept the act of improvement should never go beyond that of what's natural to our current bodies self makeup?
If we look at what this guy is doing and what is currently unfolding, can we not accept the fact that this fine athlete has in fact gone to far in an effort to create something way beyond that of a human force.
Has he not attempted to progress that little step to far?
In an effort to progress the game and himself way beyond his own being, has Tiger Woods punished himself and body to a point of no return?
Years now spent in the gym, conditioning, developing a body of un-humain proportion has finally said no more and decided to bite this American superstar where nobody else can or ever will feel it.
Maybe this point of reference is what will ultimately define his greatness as one soulful entity.
Or maybe this is the elastic that brings him back to earth with an almighty bang!
And a whollop!
Who really cares, but the suited stiff's in the USPGA Office of high commission?
I don't, so why would you.
Enjoy your golf and the game rolls on.
