Is Tiger Woods’ Mental Game Slipping? Maybe he needs a dose of Sports Hypnosis / NLP!

“Welcome to golf, I wish we could say we could putt well every day, but it doesn't happen. The only thing you can do is control your speed every day. This week, my speed has been a little bit erratic.”
Tiger Woods

Has Tiger Woods won a major title since 2008? Wasn't the 2008 U.S. Open his last? Is there hope for him? Only if he can get his mental game back!

Even though Tiger Woods is a six times tournament winner at Torrey Pines he didn’t play well during his first tournament of 2011. The Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego wasn’t very kind to him.

On the third day of the tournament, he came in a distant eight strokes off the lead with a four under 212. Phil Mickelson was tied with Bill Haas for second place with a score of 204.

Twenty Six year old Jhonattan Vegas upstaged his playing partner – Tiger Woods -- and is only three off the lead with 207. Earlier, Vegas said this about Tiger Woods "Some of the stuff he has done has been unbelievable. And just to be in a golf tournament with him is a pleasure."

Vegas went from being a US PGA Tour rookie to the victor last Sunday in the Bob Hope Classic in the desert near Palm Springs. Of course many of us would not be surprised since he was a standout at the University of Texas.

Vegas commented, “It has been, I guess, a couple of crazy days. Between being a rookie and being a winner was a huge jump. It has been exciting! It has been a pleasure! It has been really good!”
