There were two big stories this past week. The first was Rory McIlroy putting a bag full of new equipment into play. And the second was the fact that he missed the cut in Abu Dhabi - by quite a margin.
If you watched the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Maui, you witnessed the best golfers in the world challenged by the forces of Mother Nature. If it wasn’t the pouring rain wreaking havoc on their psyches, it was the hurricane like winds blowing their golf balls off the greens.
The Fed Ex Cup's completion at East Lake this year definitely had the feel of a "Super Bowl". This week's lesson learned was evident in the final round and was easy to see; Nerves and controlling them.
