Ron Sirak is the Senior Writer for Golf Digest and a published author of many books on golf.
Ron joined Ed and Steve to talk about Tiger’s performance at the Wyndham Championship and if he is closer to returning to the top of his game.
Steve asked Ron about the rise in TV ratings in relation to Tiger Woods being in contention. Ron noted, “it wasn’t just the TV ratings, the attendance was 40% higher than they normally get at Wyndham. Tiger is a once in a generation player and creates a buzz every time he steps on the course.”
Ed asked Ron about Tiger possibly over compensating for any injuries he’s had to battle over the past few years. Ron believes what is happening to Tiger is a common occurrence in sports saying, “We see it in every sport, when you play hurt you tend to overcompensate which ends up affecting everything else.”
Ron went on to discuss the steady decline of Tiger Woods’ health over the past couple of years, as well as, how long Tiger Woods’ off season will last.
