Tiger Woods has announced that he will be taking a three-week break prior to his return to the world of professional golf at the Wells Fargo Championship. After his recent Masters meltdown in which he shot 75 and kicked his club, what Paul Azinger called an “embarrassment” to the game of golf, Woods released a statement on his website which read:
“I’m going to take some time off and not look at the clubs for a while, and then get back after it.”
His Masters performance was less than adequate as Woods managed to play his worst 72-hole game in any major as a pro, tying for 40th place. Later, he was quoted by the Mercury News having said:
“I know what I need to work on. It’s just a matter of getting out there and doing it. Just putting in the reps and the time. I just wasn’t able to do it at the Masters.”
Tiger also claimed he made a mistake when he kicked his 9-iron after missing a tee shot in the second round at the par-3 16th hole. To quote Woods:
“One thing I would like to say about the Masters last week is that obviously I got frustrated at times and know some of my actions were wrong, especially at No. 16. The Masters means a lot to me, and I was trying as hard as I could. I’m out there competing. I grind every day, and my expectations are to do my best. It’s very disappointing when that doesn’t happen.”
While Woods recovers from what was obviously a rough tournament at this year’s Masters tournament, Bubba Watson is taking his now infamous pink driver to the marketplace and cashing in on his new found fame after beating the likes of Phil Mickelson, Louis Oosthuizen, and Tiger Woods as he claimed his first green jacket while winning the 2012 Masters of Golf.
