“Tiger getting to 82 wins especially the way he did it with the injuries and off course issues really is a true testament to golf being a fair game,” Phelps said. “Golf favors the players that work the hardest and to see the work ethic that Tiger has continued to be famous for over the last two decades is the reason we have seen this surgically repaired 43 year old win 3 times in his last 14 events.”
“I have seen a big uptick in golfers watching more golf especially at tournaments that Tiger is playing in,” Phelps said. “But the PGA Tour as a whole is very healthy with their new young stars, core of unbelievable golfers in their late 20’s and early 30’s and the seasoned vets still winning on a consistent basis.
“The average golfer can take away that we are good at the things that we practice, if you want to become a better golfer you can’t just show up at the course and expect to play well without putting in any time or effort. Being on a practice plan that is suited to your game and level of commitment will pay big dividends in the long run if you’re trying to get better at this game.“‘It’s a process.’ I feel like I’ve heard Tiger say that a million times. Go visit a local PGA Professional and speak to them about Player Development. I am not saying that you need to take lessons on a weekly basis but you do need a second set of eyes who is a subject matter expert to make sure that you are practicing good habits. Once you have an idea of what you should be working on, STICK TO THE PROCESS. There will be ups and downs but the only way to get better is hard work.”
